Fun place to go with kids or for a date. Our timing is usually off when we show up with our party of 6 so we wait for a table. However if the weather is nice, we don't mind walking across the street to see what's happening at Lock 3 or the visiting the Peanut Shoppe next door. My favorite... More

Lockview is a very pleasant surprise. They have a list of grilled cheese sandwiches to know your socks off, and the location is great for dining before concerts or ballgames. Try the Bloody Marys.

Lots of great beers on tap, good food. The atmosphere is old-school, not fancy, but charming and comfortable. Unique and delicious grilled cheese sandwiches are very popular here. Nice spot for a downtown lunch, after-work drinks, or pre-concert/show casual dinner and drinks.

We go here a lot for grilled cheese, sweet potato fries, friend macaroni bites, and a nice selection of craft beer. The upstairs patio is fun in the summer.

Eat inside or on the roof in downtown Akron. The food is great. Different varieties of gourmet grilled cheese. Lots of beer selections and great for kids.

Great selection of grilled cheese. Portion size is good (generous sandwich, but not overwhelming). We also enjoyed the goldfish cracker side as well as the tater tots. Fun downtown eatery.

Every time my husband and I have tried this place we get the worse service in the world. First time, we ordered ice teas and an appetizer when someone finally bothered to take our order after half an hour. Then we they brought the drinks and appetizer they did not bother to bring anything else like napkins, straws, utensils or... More
