Best venue in Akron area... a true gem. Debbie (owner) is great and Jason the bartender is the bomb and really knows his game. They serve drinks made from scratch not mixes and have good nightly food specials. Don't let the area fool you stepping into the Old 97 is like pubs from the old days' in a good way full of charm. Don't miss the local music where some of the areas best bands and artists play, they even have Jazz..in Akron? The outdoor patio in the summer ..to die for!
