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

Was in Akron for business and had scouted this place out. Co-worker and I decided to split the Number 5 and 9. Sandwiches were decent, but looked nothing like the pictures on their menus. The number 9 barely had any peppers/minimal mushrooms and barely any basil. Someone in our party had the panko chicken sandwich and they raved about how... More

Small place in downtown Akron. If you are a fan of the beer scene, this is a great place to stop. There draft selection is a little small, but they have a huge bottle selection. Their bartenders are very knowledgeable and can guide you to a beer you will enjoy. Their specialty food is grilled cheese sandwiches and they do... More

We had lunch at the Lockview while visiting our daughter. The menu was interesting and really had something for everyone. There was a great wine and beer list. It was pretty crowded but the service was still good. We would eat here again.

Me and a friend stopped here based on recommendations from friends. Before I start, let me say the place was packed this day. With that being said, the service was among the worst I have ever experienced. When we got there, there were two customers in front of us and a party of four walked in right behind us. Since... More

Once I found this establishment I couldn't stop wanting to go back. The beer selection is best in town. The grilled cheese sandwiches are fantastic. Don't forget to get tater-tots as your side. You won't regret it. It can get rather busy, so if you don't want to wait for a table get there early. Service is always good. The... More

My husband and I visited The Lockview for the first time last week. It was a beautiful evening, so we sat on the rooftop patio. While you don't have a view of the city, we still loved the atmosphere. They had great music playing. The beer selection was vast and we grilled cheese was great. I would definitely recommend the... More
