There's more to this wonderful restaurant than an amazing grilled cheese, but #6 is my favorite! Served with a side of goldfish crackers, I'm in an upgrade of my childhood! There are so many local classics, like chips and Lawson's dip, to delicious potato croquettes! This is great for a business lunch, a night out, or grabbing a bite before... More

I was in Lockview for the first time on a very busy Friday night this past summer. A server named Kelly went out of her way to make me feel welcome in the midst of the business. I appreciated her going above and beyond for me!

We dined at the Lockview with a large family group one Sunday evening. The atmosphere was perfect; the temperature was just-right, the music was eclectic and not so loud that our group couldn't converse with each other. We were all impressed with the food. We probably tried every sandwich on the menu between us, and there was hardly a bite... More

Atmosphere is cozy with lots of seating at tables or booths. My no. 13 cheese sandwich was excellent. Havati cheese, artichokes and I added bacon, excellent tasting sandwich. Sandwich was so hearty, I brought half home. Added sweet potato fries for an additional $2.00 and worth every bite. Husband had the no. 3 and said he loved his meal, tooinncluding... More

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!

Thank Kent B
