Betty and the Ghost
Holy Calamity Scream Insanity - We’ve Been Open for a Month!
As of today the Ghost Restaurant has officially been open for a month! Although things are starting slower than we had hoped for, it has still been a great month. We also just got Betty on the road this weekend for the start of our YEAR FOUR food truck season! We have so much to be proud and grateful of over the past couple years, and we’re so excited to see what this year has in store for us! Below are a handful of recent Q&A’s!
What is a Ghost Restaurant?
You can paw through this blog post to read more in depth, but essentially a Ghost Restaurant is a higher end & chef ran delivery (and in our case pick up) only “restaurant”. We use Chownow to place pick up orders, and also currently use Doordash, Ubereats & Grubhub - you can also walk in to place your order & chill in our cool entry room while you wait a couple minutes for your food. :)
Our Current Kitchen Hours:
Tuesday-Thursday: 11am-9pm // Friday: 11am-11pm // Saturday: 3pm-11pm // Sun + Mon: Closed
Where are you located?
We are located at 783 W. Market St, Akron, OH, 44303 - on the corner of Casterton Ave & W. Market St - right in the middle of Highland Square! We are directly located across the street from our fellow Highland Square Small Business Neighbors, Mary Coyle’s, Annabell’s, Black Tooth Tattoo & Angel Falls Coffee Co. in the back of the American Legion Post 19 Building. Even though we are definitely located in a hopping area of Akron, we are still tucked back kind of away from it all. Our entrance is around the back of the building where the parking lot is & through the brown doors.
Do you have seating?
No, not at this time - HOWEVER, we will be able to put some seating outdoors once the weather fully clears! We also plan to join forces with our housemates, The American Legion Post 19 - like we did for our Grand Opening, and work on putting together a monthly event, which would have a cash bar, live music and limited seating available. Details to come soon! You are also more than welcome to take your food to our friends at Annabell's Lounge & The Highland Tavern. 😍
What is the Ghost menu?
You can check out our current menu here, in addition, we also have a couple new additions, like hand crafted artisan teas from Tea House Bakery, St. Louis Style Gooey Buttercake and our super fun take on running specials, “Ghost Boxes”. Ghost Boxes are an in the dark dining experience, you select between a Meat, Veggie or Vegan meal option, let us know about any dietary requirements and leave the rest up to us. It’s a total surprise. We have had an absolute blast running these, we’re so happy that they have been going over so well! AND we also have upcoming BUILD YOUR OWN RAMEN BOWLS! Details to follow - stay tuned on our social media for ramen updates.
