    A couple of clients came into town the other night, and I took them to LockKeepers for dinner - which proved to be an excellent choice as usual. Both the service and the food ( I had the grilled salmon) were excellent. The ambiance was outstanding. Random note: Their fresh brewed iced tea might be the best I've ever had. Also I highly recommend the eggplant appetizer - Delicious!

    This was the second time my fiancee and I have been to Lockkeepers, and this visit was equally as great as the first. We had a great server, and the entire wait staff took great care of us without being obtrusive. The pumpkin ravioli was great, as was the chicken scallopini. It was definitely worth every penny!

    I decided to book a romantic evening out at Lockkeepers based on other reviews. The ambiance was very nice and service was good however, the food was average at best. If the menu changed I would consider going back but I can get the quality of food at half the price in a local ma and pop place.

    Great for a special occasion. Beautiful inside, though a bit noisy so not too romantic. Great food. We did feel a bit rushed by the staff, they wanted us to order apps & dinner at the same time. Would have liked to relax and order an after dinner drink.

    This was a special 50th birthday party for our dear friend. Our night was made very special and we enjoyed everything. Our waitress was aware and helped us with timing as we had theatre tickets so we needed to be timely yet have an elegant dinner. Many thanks and so glad we found you! love the complimentary valet.

    Hadn't been to the restaurant in many years and we decided to go there after a recent Browns game. We are so glad we did. It is gorgeous. Decorating is fabulous. The food excellent - one of the best meals we have had in awhile. The staff was very personable and very attentive. The choices on the menu were wonderful, the wine selection was also very impressive. We will definitely go back again.

    Lockkeepers has always been a step above the majority of restaurants and they continue to be very much so this October, 2014. However, right now the extraordinary offering of pumpkin dishes from appetizers to salads, to entrees is phenomenal. And at least those I was able to try were exceptionally well executed and just plain delicious. Not to be forgotten are the eggplant rollatini appetizer, among many others. Bon appetit guaranteed here.

    Our group of six were seated in a private dining room which was fantastic. The food was outstanding, my gnocchi with black truffle sauce was one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. Our server Rick W was great, prompt with the drinks and food and gave us an excellent wine suggestion. Definitely will be going back soon.

    I had the seafood risotto that was doe perfectly. Each piece if seafood was tenderly cooked to perfection. The risotto, which I know takes a long time to be cooked to a creamy but not mushy consistency, was divine. My husband is a great Italian cook, and risotto is one of my favorite dishes he makes. I have to say (anonymously) that Lockkeepers was even better! The salads were enormous, so if you just want a small dinner salad before your meal, order one and split it with someone. Dinner portions were so generous we couldn't even look at the dessert menu. Maybe next time!

    Took the day off work to be lazy, and added a lunch on the patio at Lockkeepers. My niece joined me for a beautiful afternoon on their patio, overlooking the river/canal. I had the chef special lunch, including a tomato-basil-artichoke soup, a fennel-mushroom salad, and a braised beef risotto. The soup was wonderful, and the salad surprisingly tasty. The Risotto not so much. But our waiter took excellent care of us and we thoroughly enjoyed our decadent afternoon!

    We had not been to Lockkeepers in a while because we hadn't been in the area. But, we stopped for lunch with friends and found it still fantastic. We both had a beautiful and large salad, a Frank's and a Caesar. We both had Italian dishes that were prepared perfectly and very delicious. Our wait-person was Jackie and she was very attentive, as was the entire staff. Highly recommend!!

    This was our first visit here. We started with a shared order of steamed mussels in a tomato saffron broth. The mussels were excellent and there was homemade bread for sopping up the broth. My husband ordered the Seafood Fra Divolo, which included more mussels; shrimp; clams; scallops and calamari in a spicy tomato sauce over homemade pasta. He asked if he could have mild tomato sauce instead of spicy and the server assured him he could. I had pumpkin ravioli in a brown butter and sage sauce. Both of us brought home our leftovers. My husband and I love to cook and we tend to be picky-food-people when we eat out. This restaurant far exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful evening and thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. We will be back.
