Great pre-concert meal

My sister and I stopped at The Lockview before a concert at the Akron Civic Theatre. Although there was a line out the door, we only waited for about five minutes, probably because we only had two people. I'm sure this was because of the concert that was later that night. The atmosphere was loud... read more

Food was very good. Service was excellent. Would have enjoyed a better selection, but what they serve was very good. Check the menu online. Some of my friends were planning on full dinners and this is more of a sandwich, appetizer, salad restaurant.

Came here for a first time visit with the family on a quiet Saturday afternoon. Immediately fell for the grilled cheese menu - ordered a number 6 (cheddar cheese, applewood bacon, grilled apples on amazing bread), it was so good, would have been perfect but the apples weren't really grilled. No biggie, I would eat this sandwich again. My son... More

I've been here a couple times an both were very nice. I really enjoy the food and the staff is very friendly. They are accommodating for large groups too which is awesome!

Love coming here for the great food and mix of beers. The rooftop bar is GREAT in the summer. The entire menu is delicious. The staff is a bit rude and patronizing, otherwise I'd give a 5. Don't come here with a large group. Keep it 2-4 people and you'll have a shorter wait. That being said I still go... More

This is one of those places you hear about from locals. It is great for an evening downtown as well as a grilled cheese sandwich and a beer. If you can choose which beer.

This is such a great Akron spot for drinks and food. Great beers on tap and specialty is all things grilled cheese. Akronites love this place. You will too.

If you have a few minutes before sitting down at the Lockview, cross the street and have a look at the actual lock. It's 19th century urban design in action, Then go back to the Lockview and eat and drink. This is at I di on a Tuesday. Not a lot going, on in the streest of Akron at quitting... More

Heard about their grilled cheese sandwiches, so had to try one late afternoon on a Friday. My husband and I shared a #7 and we each had a salad. He also had a bowl of their chili. While the salad, sweet potato fries and chili were unremarkable, the cheese sandwich with tomato slices and basil leaves was pretty good between... More

We were in Akron for my daughters sports team. I did a little research and found the lockview. It was perfect for a cold Friday night. There was a wait (about 20 min) but plenty of room at the bar. The half priced drink specials and apps for happy hour were great and the grilled cheeses were fantastic. We had... More
