Past. Present. Perfect. Established in 1941, by Nick Thomas Sr., The Diamond Grille is Akron’s iconic, landmark destination for flame-broiled steaks, fresh-caught seafood, and hand-crafted cocktails. Since 1941, it’s where friends gather and everyone who comes in through the back entrance is family. In a sea of chain restaurants, the Diamond Grille is a true original. It embraces its quirks and its reluctance to change. And why should it? When you’ve been in business since the Roosevelt administration, there are no apologies to make. Only new friends and new generation of loyal customers.
Since 1941 The Diamond Grille has served customers in an environment of class, charm, and conviviality. Stepping across our doorway brings you back to a different era, one in which the presentation and setting of a meal matters as much as the quality of the ingredients and the care taken by the chef.
Our steaks are U.S. Prime Beef, at its pampered best. You may be assured that the steak you choose is aged to perfection and taste. Whether you choose our royal filet mignon, broiled double french lamb chops or one of our specialties such as our sliced beef tenderloin you may expect and will receive the finest taste, presentation and service.
In addition to our famous entrees from the broiler, we take pride in the variety of appetizers, seafood and poultry dishes available as well as our fully stocked bar.

For decades, downtown Akron’s oldest restaurant has hosted some of the sports world’s glitterati for dinner. With the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club and the Canton Pro Football Hall of Fame’s induction both this weekend, there’s a good chance there will be a big name or two at the Diamond Grille once again.
