The Nite Owl gives Kenmore late night food options

by Charlee Harris

Kenmore Boulevard is quickly becoming Akron’s hotspot for fun and safe nightlife and The Nite Owl Restaurant, located at 992 Kenmore Blvd., is a major contributor to this new fun scene.

Owner Sharness Dowdy is a devoted mother and passionate entrepreneur. The Nite Owl was located in Barberton before moving to the Kenmore location in September of this year. September also marked The Nite Owl’s two year anniversary of being in operation, a milestone Sharness is truly proud of.

“I wanted to quit so many times but I am a Capricorn, a true GOAT reaching the top of every mountain I encounter”, Sharness writes in a recent Facebook post.

The Nite Owl boasts a truly diverse menu with soul food classics such as shrimp and grits but also has Italian staples like Alfredo. The menu has a pleasant rotation, with new exciting dishes being added and seasonal favorites being retired until next year. The Nite Owl menu offers great lunch and dinner options with affordable price points. The Nite Owl really lives up to its name, with menu options available until twelve am on weekdays and two am on weekends.

The Nite Owl staff offer warm, friendly, and quick service. My order of chicken wings was ready within twenty minutes of ordering and had a perfect balance of sauce and crispness. The fried green tomatoes I ordered were so delicious and authentic they took me back to my summers spent with family down south. The restaurant was immaculately clean and the staff all had personal protective equipment.

With a google rating of 4.9, it’s no wonder why The Nite Owl is quickly becoming Kenmore’s go-to eatery. So if you are on the boulevard patronizing one of the many local businesses, be sure to give The Nite Owl a try, they will not disappoint.

The Nite Owl is open Tuesday – Thursday from noon until midnight, Friday from noon until 2am, and Saturday from 4pm-2am for dine-in or takeout orders. The Nite Owl updates its menu on its Facebook page and orders may be called in at 234-678-7488.
