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....

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.

I am upgrading my previous review because they have definitely improved the service at Lockview. Love the 12 gourmet grilled cheese options. My favorite, #3. My wife loves #6. Explore the options on your own. The beer list is epic. And I always find something new! Enjoy.

Lots of folks, love, love this place. I just didn't get it as it was just average to me. The food didn't stand out and the ambiance was lacking and I am usually open to anything eclectic or otherwise.

If ever downtown Akron for a game, a civic concert, or lock 3 event, go across the street from Lock 3. Won't regret it

Great little place downtown. I had one of their gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. It was not your Mom's Kraft or Velveeta grilled cheese! It was delicious! Their chips and salsa were really good too. Friendly service. Would definitely go back.

Thank bearnstar
