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

My husband and I went to the Lockview on a Saturday at about 4pm. We thought we would be beating the dinner crowd but the place was actually about 75% full! I thought that said a lot about how good they would be, but turns out we also came in during shift change and got shifted around between THREE servers... More

Being new to the Akron area, we went here for lunch on the recommendation of my husband's co-worker. I love grilled cheese and tomato soup and was worried about ordering anything but the standard. But went out on a limb and ordered the sandwich with bacon and apples. Not Disappointed!!! Amazing sandwich! My daughter ordered the tomato soup. It really... More

I've been to the lockview a couple of times for lunch, both were good experiences. Food isn't fancy but good, service was attentive even though they were really busy, and prices are reasonable. We didn't try the beer but I have heard they have a great selection. I loved the atmosphere and the coziness of the place. It was busy... More

the food is pretty good and pretty regular. Lots of cool grilled cheese and great burgers. Nothing to overlook, but regular. the big fun is the 160 beers, mostly handcrafted, and the dozen or so drafts. This is our favorite Akron restaurant when we want reliable, good food and a great drink.

Wanted to stop in to get my 3yr old son a grilled cheese. Upon entering we were told to sit anywhere, so we headed to the back of the restaurant because our 1yr old daughter was sleeping in her umbrella stroller, and we didn't want to inconvenience anyone with the stroller. As we were entering the booth, the waitress comes... More

Lockview is one of the few restaurants in downtown Akron. So for variety, we decided to try it. The place is known for its grill cheese sandwich variety. I decided to try the classic grill cheese with tomato soup on the side. The sandwich had globs of cheese on it and the toast wasn't as large or toasted as I... More

Nice casual dining. Good service. Great beer selection. In touch with my inner child with designer grilled cheese and tator tots!
