Good little place.

I enjoyed dinner here. They had plenty of different sandwiches to try. It's something different that is worth a try.

We met family and had very interesting grilled cheese sandwiches. We also attended a fundraiser on the roof top and had more interesting grilled cheese sandwiches. Think Grilled Cheese is ho hum? Very interesting additions such as sauteed onions, apples and bacon. YUM!

Excellent menu with an enormous variety of grilled cheese options, who can go wrong with that? Tater tot sides, Lawson's chip dip and Golden Crisp Chips as an appetizer? I want to live here! Not to mention the outstanding beer selection - including my favorite Belgium beers which are not on every menu in town. Love it! I've eaten on... More

Nice cozy place and really good sandwiches, the soup is always good and the homemade macaroni and cheese is great, really good place for a bit to eat and a good drink, many different beers also.

More than a bar, but it has a big one - downtown lunch place for me. Great selection of grilled cheese, many with interesting cheeses and veggie, bacon, etc. accompaniments. Friendly service, not terrible fast, but OK.

I've been here several times with different groups who wanted to try this place. I haven't had any of their grilled cheese; it comes with goldfish and with the upgrade to fries, I always figure that I could make it cheaper myself. The burger and macaroni and cheese were nothing to get excited about but weren't bad. The chicken, however,... More

12 different specialty grilled cheese sandwiches. 140 beer varieties. Downtown locale. We found the service to be friendly and professional. The prices were surprisingly reasonable.

The fried pepperoni is to die for. Comes out as an appetizer but is plenty enough for a meal. Then you get to wash it down with one of their many many beers they have

The food is always good and consistent. The highlight is the draft selection and rooftop patio. Very cool on a summer night.

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 and at times we couldn't... More
