Credited with inventing the chicken sandwich in 1946, Truett Cathy opened the first Chick-fil-A in 1967, which gained fame with its original chicken sandwich and crispy waffle-cut fries. Breaded by hand, each boneless breast fillet tumbles in special seasonings before 100% refined peanut oil endows a crispiness as golden as the heart of Eugene Levy. The tender fowl then tops toasted butter buns adorned with dill-pickle discs (golden wheat buns are also available). Though Chick-fil-A's award-winning Eat Mor Chikin campaign runs every day of the week and now on the nearby moon, patrons should note each establishment is closed Sundays.
Eddy's Deli serves more than 100 inexpensive and classic menu items ranging from breakfast and sandwiches to salads, soups, dinner plates, and desserts. The breakfast menu is served from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m., and has enough combinations to excite both bright-beaked early birds and groggy nighthawks. Feed your inner child with breakfast favorites such as the low-calorie or homestyle french toast ($3.75). For a filling feast, the house breakfast special ($3.55) comes complete with two eggs and toast, along with home fries, grits, or fruit with bacon, ham, or sausage. Noontime hunger-havers will be glad to learn that Eddy's cooks its own corned beef and roast beef on-site at its restaurants daily. Dig into a corned beef on rye or the roast beef (both $6.95) for lunch, savoring the meatsperience while fondly recalling someone else's childhood from 1930s New York. For a satisfying supper, try half a fried chicken served with glazed honey, or the savory comfort of baked meat loaf (both $7.95). The casual and friendly atmosphere at Eddy's offers small and large tables ideal for unicyclists and bicycle gangs alike. Whether swinging by to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, or standing in the middle of the room and screaming, the expansive menu has something to offer, with simple edibles so delicious that they might even stanch the screams.
There's nothing even slightly metaphorical about the name of Beau's on the River. With a glassed-in dining room jutting out over the rapids on pillars, it's about as literally on the water as a place can get without being a boat.
This sister restaurant to Beau's Grille opened only in May 2013, and while the views may be all new, the cooking has been a long time coming. Akron native and executive chef Billy Thurman started working in the restaurant business at age 14, and by age 25, he attained his first position as executive chef at The Twilight Cafe in Florida. Eventually, he moved back home to be closer to his mother and sisters, and he brought his wife, children, and 18 years of experience along with him.
Chef Thurman puts that experience to work in the kitchen at Beau's on the River, where he helps craft an expansive menu of inventive fine dining. He coats ahi tuna with coconut sticky rice and pairs grilled chicken with lime cream and corn salsa. And of course, as guests dine, floor-to-ceiling windows frame the majesty of the tumbling falls and the hungry phalanx of fish fighting against the currents for fallen crumbs.
Metropolis Popcorn fills cups and bags with batches of popcorn cooked in cholesterol free coconut oil and mixed with a creative potpourri of candies and other tasty ingredients. Traditional mixes, such as super 3 cheese, sit side by side with a loaded baked potato-flavored batch. Big League Grape candied popcorn harkens back to gum-chewing childhoods, and nostalgia and taste further intertwine in overflowing bags of Girl Scout Cookies, which promise melted fudged cookies layered over every crispy mouthful.
Domenic's Pub is a classic sports bar featuring a menu of pub fare that's served until late (11 p.m. Sunday–Thursday, midnight on Fridays and Saturdays). Chow down on pizza, sandwiches, and wings capable of filling stomachs with that warm, fuzzy feeling normally only achieved by hunkering down in a Japanese kitten pit. The sliced prime-rib panini slathered with horseradish mayo and provolone comes au jus to allow for the delightful juice-to-bread exchange ($5). Specialty pizzas such as the Mediterranean (olive oil, shrimp, roasted red pepper, basil, and fresh mozzarella, $6) provide pre-sliced pabulum for bicker-free dining among the mixed company of friends, acquaintances, and old-timey industrial tycoons. Prove your mettle by downing a basket of hot wings, which can be lovingly chased by a pint of Labatt Blue, Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat, Guinness, or Miller Lite, all on draught.
