Where to Watch Football in Summit

By Samantha Blair | Tuesday, November 19, 2019

As all of you sports fans know, football season is in full swing. Many Summit County bars and pubs offer a place where you can catch all the games, talk smack with your fellow fans and rivals, and enjoy some yummy food and drinks while you’re at it. Below I've called out some of the top spots in each town across the county to watch the season's biggest games, but these are certainly not all of them. Click here for a list of more bars and pubs across the county.
