Want to try some local or national microbrews? This is your place. The grilled cheese sandwiches are awesome. Free parking is near by and you can walk to Canal Park from their doorstep.

The Lockview, hands down, is one of my favorite restaurants to visit in downtown Akron during the summer. The upstairs patio doesn't have a view but it's just funky enough to make you want to go hang out there. I hate that the patio is closed on Mondays! Excellent beer selection and decent food. The hamburgers are always good and... More

Stopped in after hearing good things from a friend and had a good meal. All of the grilled cheeses sounded amazing, along with a lot of other items on the menu. The sandwiches are very good, a decent size, but not particularly hearty. I probably could have eaten another! Staff was friendly and there were plenty of drinks to choose... More

When I walk into this restaurant/bar it gave me a big city vibe. I was like wow the setup is unique from the chalkboard with a list of drinks to the nice jazz music playing in the background. I choose to eat the spicy crab dip and I was impress. This spot is definitely a five star in my book.

I work nearby so I get to visit The Lockview frequently. Very laid back atmosphere, with an eclectic mix of food and beer to match. Everyone raves about the grilled cheese, but I love the fish taco. Also recommend the tots and fried pepperoni! You can't go wrong in this warm, welcoming establishment!

Enjoyed some lunch before getting on the Cuyahoga Valley Train. Had my 8 and 10 year old boys with me. It's a bar setting, but comfortable for families at lunch. Grilled cheese is their specialty. Different varieties, but my boys settled for an original. Plus bacon. Sweet potato fries were awesome. Husband's beer was warm, the mountains were not blue...lol,... More

The menu for grilled cheese sandwhichs is awesome-and every bite is yum! Great place for any kind of evening, date, downtown dirty, day or night. The beer selections and everything else has always consistently been above and beyond. Highly recommend to any grilled cheese and/or beer lover....

We had a long wait for our food, but with saying that we were there on a Friday night with events at the Lock 3, a baseball game going on and Weird Al was performing across the street at the theater. Our server was really nice, she kept us informed and updated. We will go back again just to give... More

The bartender was so outgoing and told us about the area. We loved our grilled cheese. 13 different ones to choose from on the menu. Great Place. I will go back if we make it to Akron again.
