Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Akron's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
The fifth-largest municipality in the state, Akron is a diverse mix of cultures. However, Italian and American cuisines are the top favorites. Shelves of wine and dishes like gnocchi Florentine with spinach await guests after a day exploring the city once known as the "Rubber Capital of the World." There are several steakhouses in Akron that serve food like Wagyu beef sliders with blue cheese, bacon jam, garlic aioli and truffle fries or a 16-ounce USDA prime New York strip steak served with spicy onion rings. Hip and trendy American diners offer options like surf and turf, which includes several seared scallops, beef short ribs, mushrooms, whipped potatoes and a mustard sauce for dipping.
