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

Great sandwiches and a wonderful selection of beer. Lockview is the perfect place to gather for drinks or dinner (or both) before going to a show across the street at the Civic Theater.

I was told that this place specialized in fancy grilled cheeses and I love grilled cheese so maybe my expectations were too high, but I wasn't overly impressed. I got the Number 6 on wheat with no bacon and I'll give them credit for 1. not giving me a problem about changing the bread and fillings and 2. actually getting... More

Just like my title states, this place is located in downtown Akron, and specializes in gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and craft beer. The restaurant itself is unassuming from the outside; 'dive bar' comes to mind. Inside, it's completely new and clean, and very modern. The menu items are all very good. I had the Mac & Cheese Bites and the... More

This was a total disappointment! Grilled cheese and the cheese wasn't melted. I ordered a simple american grilled cheeses with nothing else. My boyfriend ordered one with smoked gouda and sundried tomatoes. His wasn't even slightly melted! We asked to just have them heated up, and that apparently is a no no at this place. They took them away for... More

Stopped into the Lockview to grab a bite to eat before a show at the Civic Theatre (which happens to be just across the street). It was cold and snowy and the menu of gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, home made soups and appetizers was very inviting. They have an extensive wine and beer menu, along with delicious appetizers for for... More
