Eclectic, authentic

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.

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

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

Food was very good. Service was excellent. Would have enjoyed a better selection, but what they serve was very good. Check the menu online. Some of my friends were planning on full dinners and this is more of a sandwich, appetizer, salad restaurant.

Came here for a first time visit with the family on a quiet Saturday afternoon. Immediately fell for the grilled cheese menu - ordered a number 6 (cheddar cheese, applewood bacon, grilled apples on amazing bread), it was so good, would have been perfect but the apples weren't really grilled. No biggie, I would eat this sandwich again. My son... More

Love coming here for the great food and mix of beers. The rooftop bar is GREAT in the summer. The entire menu is delicious. The staff is a bit rude and patronizing, otherwise I'd give a 5. Don't come here with a large group. Keep it 2-4 people and you'll have a shorter wait. That being said I still go... More

This is one of those places you hear about from locals. It is great for an evening downtown as well as a grilled cheese sandwich and a beer. If you can choose which beer.
