Amazing meals await you at LockKeepers. From high end and reasonably priced drinks at the bar, to appetizers that stand out in every way, to main courses that impressed both visually and to the palette, LockKeepers is an experience that is remarkably affordable for the quality and care that you receive. Located on the Ohio Canal, started in an original LocKKeeper's house, this establishment, like the fine wine they serve, gets better with age. The traditional meat and seafood choices were delicious and the Italian fare was impressive and authentic. All told, a fine dining experience worthy of the trip and worth coming back.

Best waiter we have ever had. He was superb! He was knowledgeable, courteous and attentive. He knew we had to be out the door by 7 pm to arrive at Playhouse Square so he asked for our valet ticket and made sure our car was waiting at the door for us. Excellent service.

Our server was prompt and informative when we had menu questions. The daily soup special, a kale, white bean sausage soup was delicious, my one guest had gnocchi with mushrooms that she said was excellent, and my other guest had the trout and he said it was excellent. I had the lunch pronto which was a small salad with pasta and bits of sausage and roasted cherry tomatoes and it was very tasty. Such a great place with top-notch service and comfortable decor.

As always, Lockkeepers was outstanding. Jackie is a wonderful server---attentive, knowledgeable and personable. Both the pork chop and the pumpkin ravioli were delicious; unfortunately, the pork chop wasn't hot. However, this is definitely the exception at Lockkeepers. The cheesecake is the best in town. The staff is very friendly, from the front desk to the valets.

We requested seating in the bar, and the hostesses always accommodate that, which we really appreciate. We had Maria as our server, and this was the first time we have had her. She did a great job, and provided great service with a warm personality. We so enjoy our visits to Lockkeepers when we are working in the area. Thanks for always being GREAT!

This was my first visit, was disappointed. Ordered the $35 seafood dish (diabali?) which contained a small lobster tail. 5 mussels, 5 or so tiny clams and too much calamari tentacles. Sauce was very spicy. Also ordered a roasted beet salad which was lots of greens, 4 thin slices of beet, and a few crumbs of goat cheese. $12.00! So the value wasn’t there. However the ambiance was nice and our waiter was good. The bread was good.

The service was amazing. The server was prompt when needed and took care of us well. I got the fresh pasta of the day option and my wife got the sword fish. My food wasn’t that good. It tasted as if someone just drenched the lobster and noodles in butter. It needed some type of acid to make it enjoyable.

We’ve been to Lockkeepers many times over the last 15 years. They have the best servers in the business. The food is always excellent, the wine list is varied, and every staff member is fully trained and experienced in the upscale dining experience. Highly recommend.

Seated right away. Waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful with decisions. Salad and soup came out right away. The entrees took longer than expected. Food was great. Waitress brought out a desert with a Birthday message which was very nice.

It was my anniversary and the waitress did everything possible to make it fantastic. My wife loved her food but my food was just ok. The manager took my food off the bill. The desert was the best thing I have ever had. I would highly recommend this place and will definitely go back.
