My husband and I stopped for lunch at Lockkeepers. At my request, we were seated by the windows overlooking the river. The ambiance is subdued with quiet music and conservative decor in dark colors. Portions were generous and well prepared. I had grilled salmon, and my husband had Arctic char. The coffee was acceptable but not good enough to have... More

The food is excellent and atmosphere was very nice! Service was great ! Would definitely go back here again but I would like to go in warmer weather because there is an outdoor eating area with a very nice view!

This is an wonderful restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding. The variety of entrées on the menu allowed everyone in our group to select their favorite foods. I had a chicken dish and I can't wait to return to try one of the other entrées.

We attended a wedding and had their dinner buffet. It was excellent. The roast beef just melted in your mouth. Best tasting beef I've ever had. Loved the potatoes with the skins and the veggie mixed was fantastic. Nothing bad at all about this place

Sometimes my husband and I just want a nice meal to split along with an app. They have a great antipasto plate they we split along with several nice dishes to choose from. It doesn't hurt that they have a superior selection of Bourbon, Scotch and Whiskey along with knowledgeable bartenders.

I have been traveling to the Independence/Rockside Rd area regularly for almost a year, and Lockkeepers consistently provides the best food and service in the area. The menu is adapted to the season, and the pasta - made fresh daily - is some of the best I've had anywhere. I typically dine at the bar when solo, but will eat... More

we had a large family get together; 10 people. The variety of food met everyones tastes, the wine list exposed me to a number of new options, and the service was very attentive. We had a great time, and I will be recommending LockKeepers to friends in the Cleveland area

An excellent representation of Italian eatery. We arrived as a large party of 13 and food delivery was prompt and excellent. From service to food quality, I will be back. As a friendly warning, the carrot cake is not big, its monstrous.

We went for a thanksgiving weekend lunch and had a great experience. The venue was surprisingly expansive and charming; quite suitable for events. We started with carpaccio (thickly shaved parmesan, fresh arugula) and a delicious calamari (sundried tomatoes and shiitakes were a great counterpoint and not overpowering of the calamari). We immediately honed in on the house made pastas which... More

This was our first time at LockKeepers, but it wont be our last. Nate was our server and he was fantastic! The quality of the food was amazing. My son and I both had the black garlic gnocchi with Maine lobster, it was incredible! We both raved about it. My husband had the lasagna, and my other son had the... More
