A new restaurant is slated to open today in Strongsville's southeast corner.
Barking Bullfrog, a family oriented bar and grill, has taken over the former store at Bennett's Corners
Jay Bloesinger, who owns on West 130th Street, took over the vacant store next door to expand his restaurant into a full-service sports-themed grill that will feature "real good food and a fun atmosphere."
"It's something this area really needs," said Bloesinger, who has operated in the shopping center for two years. "It'll be a place to take the family, relax and have a burger or some pizza."
The eatery features free popcorn, "ridiculously oversized portions" and eight 42-inch TVs, plus a 96-inch high-definition projector to show sports.
The 3,000-square-foot restaurant seats about 100 and is connected with a walkway to the pizza shop.
There are some games, but no pool tables or dart leagues in order to keep the family friendly nature, similar to Winking Lizard or .
