The menu at Rav's Creekside Tap & Grill is definitely extensive—patrons can order anything from calamari and 12 kinds of wings to half-pound burgers and new york strip steak. But ribs are their specialty, half or full slabs of pork that's steamed in beer before being slow-roasted and painted with a choice of sauce. And like the diverse menu, there's also a diverse lineup of entertainment here, including seven HDTVs and a projection screen for games, as well as karaoke, DJs, and live bands. Whatever the evening's entertainment, groups should make a point to check out the patio, which is one of the largest overlooking nearby Tinkers Creek.
Inside Panini's Bar and Grill's palace of brick and stone in Twinsburg, pennants, jerseys, and famed sports photos bathe in the glow of 31 high-definition televisions.

To round out the pairing of sports and overstuffed sandwiches, Saturday nights bring in live entertainment. Panini's has hosted such acts as the Rocket Men Dueling Pianos, in which two astronauts drop grand pianos on one another to demonstrate the principles of gravity.
The Glenwillow Grille's tasty menu features a wide variety of savory starters, salads, flatbreads, sandwiches, and specialty entrees that will sweep your taste buds off their soft-palated shoes.

Paws Restaurant, a sister eatery to The Leopard dishes out casual elegance in a romantic dining room.

During dinner, pans sear filet mignon, porterhouse steaks, and other luscious cuts of meat reveling beneath house-made steak sauces and demi-glaces, and grilled fishes of the day don fruit salsas or sweet soy sauce flavored with shiitake mushrooms. A team of sushi chefs slice sashimi, cinch hand rolls stuffed with fish, such as eel and tuna, and arrange bento boxes into scale models of the Large Hadron collider.
When they made them move from La Piedad, Mexico to Aurora, the Hernandez and Alarcon families brought more than just their possessions; they brought their families’ entire repertoire of classic Mexican recipes. They prepare everything from classic burritos stuffed with meat or vegetables, to their own unique contributions such as grilled shrimp, scallops, and pineapple tossed in chipotle sauce. Most of their dishes come with Mexican rice, beans, and tortillas, and pair nicely with the sharp sweetness of their margaritas, which come by the glass or the pitcher.
