Country club restaurants offer respite to weary golfers, as well as relief to their caddies who'd otherwise have to add picnic tables and pig spits to their already heavy loads. Enjoy bogies and burgers leisurely with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh pub fare and drinks at Hackers Bar & Grill.
Part of the Firestone Country Club, Hackers' cozy, family-friendly establishment is open to its links-loving members and the non-golfing public alike. The inviting glow of ten plasma screen televisions beckon guests to the bar, where Hackers serves a whistle-whetting list of domestic beers and wines by the glass ($4–8), as well as liquor and mixed drinks. Pub classics such as fish and chips ($12), pizza ($12–15), and customizable burgers ($8), vie for menu dominance against vitamin-laden salmon salads ($10) and Asian-inspired sweet and sour shrimp ($14). Golfers can continue to bully tiny spheres off the course and sink their teeth into an order of Akron sauerkraut balls ($6). The restaurant's atmosphere is comfy and cozy, with a toasty fireplace, golf-themed décor, and a wall of windows that look out onto the 9-hole course, allowing smug sandwich-eaters to marvel at how many strokes it takes some people to escape from the sandtrap.
CityVoters rated Hackers Bar & Grill one of the top five New American restaurants in the city in 2008 and 2010.
