Ido Bar & Grill in Firestone Park Ohio

   Well, shocking, another local business review by me on "Food"! This one is easy, as I have been a fan of the Ido Bar & Grill in Firestone Park Ohio for many, many years, even before my friends, Steve and Marcy Baker bought it in 1998. They both had many years of experience at another fabulous restaurant in Firestone Park named Guy's. When Guy's changed their format from a restaurant to party center and catering, Steve, the chef, and Marcy, the hostess manager, took a big step and bought the Ido Bar & Grill. It had changed hands several times from it's glory days into bad versions of a neighborhood bar. Gone were the menu items that had made the Ido Bar & Grill famous, not only in Firestone Park but all over the Akron Ohio area.

   Steve and Marcy did not waste any time as the food was awesome from opening night. Back was the Famous "oozing" Ido Burger, giant chef's salad, chicken diablo (my wifes favorite) and the Hungarian sausage. Steve did not stop there, however. He was known for his steaks at Guy's and he did not disappoint at the Ido Bar & Grill. Steak to die for; huge Louisiana Rib Eye, Swiss steak and large filets that melt in your mouth. And do you want to know a secret? Don't pass on the 2 huge pork chops basted in your favorite seasoning, oh my! The menu and more information on The Ido Bar and Grill can be found here.

   With the success of the Ido Bar and Grill, Steve and Marcy did our neighborhood of Firestone Park another huge favor. They bought and redecorated a very old bar that was in dire need of either being torn down or revived. And revived they did! It is now, in my opinion, the best Irish Pub in Akron Ohio, Kevin O'Bryans. As awesome family people, the Pub is named after two of their sons. Their daughter Missy is the very friendly and accomodating manager. The menu and more information on Kevin O'Bryan's here.
