This ain't your mama's grilled cheese!

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.

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.

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

My work group has gone there for lunch several times. I will say we got the most prompt service on our most recent visit. There have been other times when we waited so long after ordering food that we asked to make it to go since we had to get back to work. Of course, a huge array of drinks,... More

I have been to The Lockview multiple times while working downtown Akron, and miss it so much since I have changed jobs! I have never been disappointed with any order. All of the sandwiches are great. My personal favorites include the panko crusted chicken and the veggie pita. One of my co-diners ordered the sandwich that has mashed potatoes on... More

Had a dinner there on a Monday night. About 9 people total eating in restaurant and we were 4 of them. Food and beer was fine. Nothing special, but good. Asked them to change a TV to Monday Night Football. "The owner does not like sports on TV" was the direct quote from waitress. Maybe they would have more then... More
