The Boulevard

The Boulevard Tavern and Restaurant
by Joanna Wilson

Sometimes I'm just looking to hang out in an old school, neighborhood bar.  Once such place I frequent is The Boulevard, located on Chestnut Boulevard in Cuyahoga Falls.  This isn't a fancy place or one where all the local hipsters are talking about.  Quite the opposite.  And that's its appeal.  It's a good, comfortable place with a laid-back atmosphere, where there's no pressure to impress anyone who might be there.

The Lake Perch three-piece fish dinner served over french fries and a side of cole slaw.

The menu is small, offering Mediterranean dishes such as falafel, shawarma and kabobs.  Oddly, you can also find nachos and quesadillas listed.  But the Boulevard has made their reputation on two items: Lake Perch fish dinners which they offer on special every Wednesday and Friday, and The Bouley Burger, a cheeseburger topped with a fried egg.  The burger with a fried egg topping is a feature many places are offering on their menus now.  I've tried a number of them but I keep returning to The Boulevard for their version.

Sometimes I'm just in the mood for a quiet place to linger, enjoy some comfort food, and drink a beer or two.  That's when I want to go to a place where the menu's not too complicated, the food's not too fussy, but everything they do, they do well.  That's when you'll find me at the Boulevard.  Where do you go to find a casual place to drink, eat and socialize?  Want to share it with our Akron Empire readers?  Email us about guest blogging or contact us on our Facebook page.
