Just the best meal of my life. Interesting that as Italian I never knew that we can do gnocchi with ricotta instead of patatoe! Really excellent! Service impeccable. Great place to go for dinner!

We dined here on a weeknight and it was very busy with business people. A couple large noisy tables made it difficult to hear some of the time. Our food was fine, esp the calamari and the pasta preparations. The walleye was okay but risotto it was served on was good. We have eaten here before upstairs and that was... More

My boyfriend highly recommended this restaurant for dinner. We went there with his parents. The bread was fresh and warm. For dinner, I ordered the lasagna. It is a good thing I brought a big appetite, the portion was huge! I ended up giving what I couldn't eat to my boyfriend. It was some of the best lasagna I've had.... More

The excellent service and food does not disappoint. My Risotto with shrimp and lobster was delicious. I can't resist antipasto and that was good as well. My wife's beef tenderloin was delicious. Our waiter, Rick, was an excellent host and recommended a great yet inexpensive red wine.

My husband and I travel a lot around the U.S. Not out of the country any longer. This is an older restaurant that has continued to re-invent itself. Feels young. Wonderful menu, gourmet preparations and always delightful. We have been on the patio both times that we visited in the last three years. It is one thing to be awed... More

We dined at Lockkeepers on 9/12. Our table was ready on time. Our server was friendly and helpful. We were impresses that when we shared an appetizer and salad, they decided both and both were generous. We had the same main course of seafood risotto. It was laden with succulent shrimp, scallops and lobster. The wine list is impressive. Went... More

Happened upon this restaurant, when we wondered down the street from our hotel (Doubletree on Quarry Lane). The restaurant was beautiful. Easy to make reservations on-line. Asked for patio seating (as long as they didn't permit smoking), and they were able to accommodate us. Tables on the balcony were beautiful sculpted metal. Gentle breeze in the hot humid evening, but... More

Beautiful atmosphere and very attentive service. The ravioli entree was delicious and a generous amount. The seafood pasta and spaghetti dishes were excellent, and also generously portioned. Dessert menu also very nice with regular-type offerings. The pricing was fair.

Lockkeepers is a nice little find in the Independence OH area .... locally owned and operated the place has a great bar area if you are solo or have just one person joining you, and an energetic dining area for larger parties. The menu is classic american with pasta, fish and steak choices. There is a good wine list and... More
