First- the atmosphere is great, I love the low lighting and the mellow feel of the restaurant, though its usually crowded with customers. The beer selection is great, waiters are very helpful with advice. I have not found a grilled cheese I don't like, though the bacon, apple, cheddar is my favorite. Who doesn't want to sit down with a... More

The Lockview is a comfortable, local hangout with a great menu of comfort foods. They offer an impressive variety of grilled cheese sandwiches. They also have a fun selection of sides including gold fish crackers and tater tots. But the best thing on the menu is their mac and cheese bites.

Very unique menu and beer selection. It is worth stopping for a brew alone, then you get the many combinations of grilled cheese sandwiches. Very glad that we made the stop. When traveling through Akron, consider this place for sure.

The gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches live up to their billing! The included sides (goldfish) leave something to be desired. This is intentional on the part of the restaurant as they offer appetizing "upgrades" for another $1.50. Our table (there were 5 of us and we had to wait 40 minutes when they had two open 8-tops, but weren't seated since... More

Love the gourmet grilled cheese and tots. Love the awesome beer list. I would give it 5 stars if the service was faster. After observing today for over an hour I have a solution. Buy another computer terminal to enter orders/checks. At times there were 4servers queued up to use the only terminal. We were here 40 minutes longer than... More

I had been to the Lockview back in June and enjoyed a good meal and service. So I decided to return last week during my visit to Akron. I walked in on a Wednesday at 5:15 and asked for a table for one. I was told that it was their policy not to seat anyone at a table who was... More

My friend and I are working our way through an article of places in Akron that you MUST try. So I drove in from Cleveland to meet my friend here for dinner last night (10/29/14). I'd forgotten the joy that is downtown Akron. Snarl. I finally abandoned my truck on Bowery and hoofed it over to the Lockview, kidlet in... More

I went here this evening to meet up with some friends as I heard decent recent reviews of the menu and the beer selection from other friends. I was met with a rather unknowable server who seemed to care less about our needs or presumably had no knowledge of the wine list or the items on the menu. I was... More

Met our son and his girlfriend here for dinner. Right across from the Lock park on Main St, you can't get any closer to the middle of downtown. We park at one of the angled spots right in front, the kids parked in the deck across the street. Long skinny setup with a long bar on one side, dozen or... More
