Eat & Drink

The health, well-being and safety of our community is of foremost importance to the business owners, institutions, organizations and employees who make up our family in downtown Akron. Due to circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and following the recommendations of Governor DeWine and state of Ohio Public Health officials, a number of businesses and organizations have cancelled or postponed events, and closed their doors for the time being.

In many cases, it is still possible to support your favorite downtown businesses, either by shopping online, ordering carry-out or delivery, purchasing gift cards and / or making donations. Some eateries are offering patio or dine-in services. While the information on this page is updated regularly, we recommend calling ahead to ensure the restaurant you've chosen offers the services you hope to access.

Please follow the recommendations of our public health officials with regard to social distance and proper health etiquette when entering any public spaces.
