Welcome to another fun and flavorful episode of “I Can Do Another 12”! In this milestone 50th episode, we ventured into the heart of Ravenna, Ohio, to check out a local favorite that’s heating up the neighborhood vibe—Rootstown Firehouse Grille and Pub. This family-owned spot isn’t just a bar; it’s a community staple where good food, sports, and camaraderie blend seamlessly.

First Impressions

Stepping into Firehouse Grille and Pub, you immediately get that welcoming, laid-back atmosphere that only a great neighborhood pub can offer. It’s the kind of place where everyone might not know your name when you walk in, but they sure will by the time you leave. The decor strikes a cozy balance between rustic and modern, making it perfect for both family dinners and game nights.

The Menu

Firehouse Grille and Pub serves up the quintessential pub fare with some delightful twists. From burgers to wings, their menu caters to a variety of tastes and preferences. But let’s talk wings—because that’s what we did! We tried the Bone In Hot Wings, which we scored a solid 7.9 out of 10. These classic bar-style wings were juicy, well-cooked, and tossed in a robustly flavorful hot sauce that had just the right kick.

For those who like to mix things up, the range of sauces and dry rubs is nothing short of impressive. Options span from Honey Mustard to Wicked Hot, including intriguing mixes like Erie Thai and Honey Jack BBQ. The Dry Rub, touted as their special seasoning, adds a unique flavor profile that complements the smokiness of the Erie Island Smoke.

Drinks and Deals

No great pub is complete without a solid lineup of drinks, and Firehouse doesn’t disappoint. They offer a variety of draft beers and cocktails, perfect for washing down those spicy wings or toasting to a good game. And if you’re looking for deals, Wednesday nights are a hit with all drinks at half off. It’s an ideal midweek treat!

Service and Atmosphere

The service here is as good as the food. According to a Google Local Guide named Ashley,

“The Food always comes out quickly, perfect for the lunch hour to be in and out.” She also gave a shoutout to Analisse, the bartender, claiming her as “the best bartender in Portage County, hands down!” It’s this kind of service that builds a loyal customer base.

Kid-Friendly Vibes

In a delightful twist for a sports bar, Firehouse Grille and Pub is very kid-friendly. Families can feel comfortable bringing their children along for a meal, which isn’t always a given at pubs and bars.

Final Thoughts

All in all, Firehouse Grille and Pub stands out as a stellar example of what local pubs should aspire to be. It provides not just meals and drinks, but a place where community and comfort are always on the menu. If you find yourself in Ravenna, don’t miss out on this gem. Whether you’re there for the wings, the drinks, or the warm welcomes, Firehouse is sure to leave a lasting impression.
