“Best Beer Selection in Akron, Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Four of us went on a Friday night and were pleasantly surprised with the EXTENSIVE beer list. IF you like craft beers then this is the place for you. I had the number 8 with tomato soup. Both were great. We also had the fried pepperoni, but would not order again. This place would be great in the summertime. I recommend this place to anyone!

“Best Cheese Sandwich!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

I came here to kill some time before a show and was intrigued by tales of their fancy cheese sandwiches. If you care at all about cheese, give this place a try. Amazing!

“Was'nt "Melt" but was still pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

My wife and I were going to a Buddy Guy concert at the Akron Civic and thought we should make reservations for dinner. We were going to try Barley House but found it to be closed for a private party. So, we decided to try The Lockview. Place was crowded when we arrived and got even worse as the night went on. Glad we had reservations. Service was good. Food was pretty good. The grilled cheese sand. we saw coming out were not of Melt proportions but still looked good. I decided to get the chicken cordon blue sand. and the sweet potatoe fries and it was very tasty.My wife got the chicken panko sand., but did not like the bread. It tasted like salad croutons. With dif. bread it would have been great! I would def. go here again!!! Our server Shivon, was nice and the beer was cold. So, give the place a try next time you are in Akron.

“A Very 'Cheesy' Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

If you like cheese, you will love this place. It's in downtown Akron, but worth a couple of trips around the block to find a parking place. LIke Bubba on Forest Gump, they make all kinds of cheese sandwiches -- even give you those little fish-looking little cheese crackers with soup and whatever you order. The food is great; the services is excellent and the price is very affordable. Highly recommended!
