This is my go to restaurant and they do not disappoint! 7/20 I went to celebrate my dad's birthday. (He past away 4 years ago) My server Jiles was amazing, attentive, thoughtful and compassionate. He even brought a complimentary dessert with candles for celebration. Lockeepers continues to be my #1 choice for service and the food is amazing!!! Thank you!

My first time in Cleveland, and so my husband and I looked for a place to have dinner, so glad we chose Lockkeeper, didn’t fail us, in fact, we love it! For the starter we had eggplant Rollatini, entree’s were lasagna, sword fish, drinks were manhattan, montenegro, sea side california wine (pinot noir), lemoncello and for the dessert was Creme brûlée! Would recommend all the above as they are real good, the ambience, location and service at it’s finest!

Pricing is a little high for a la cart your entree should include a salad for the price

First time back to this old favorite after the pandemic. Food was fabulous - - especially the swordfish special. Waiter was a little "goofy" and hard to communicate with. . .but the food came up accurately and timely! Will stay on our favorites list!

We were celebrating over 40 yrs of marriage- we were given complimentary champagne at the beginning & chocolate strawberries with whipped cream & a chocolate card at the end of our 3 course meal. The filet & swordfish were outstanding as well the asides- mashed potatoes, asparagus, onion strings, mushrooms,spinach. Excellent!

Gretchen was a GREAT server! I gave her the option of two dishes and asked her to surprise me. She did as she brought half portions of both and was very attentive even during a late lunch.

We sat on the patio because our table inside was very cold with air blowing on us so we moved to the patio which is charming....until the first truck hit the rut right across from our table, then over and over again. afternoon is probably the height of business traffic. Must be quite nice in the evening.
Our waitress was Jackie and she was outstanding. Very personable and pleasant but not hovering.
It was goodbye to our friend moving out of state, It might have been nice to acknowledge with a comp dessert

As Americans we are truly spoiled by having so many choices in our lives. That said, I would have liked to see a few more wine by the glass and menu selections. It was pretty limited.

My husband and I decided to celebrate our 57th wedding anniversary at LockKeepers and it was definitely the right decision. From the moment we arrived and we’re greeted by the hostess welcoming us and wishing us a “wonderful evening and a very happy anniversary!” to the time we left we had a great time. Our waitress, Kristin, was excellent! Attentive, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional the entire evening. She is a credit to her organization. My husband ordered the baked lasagne and ate every morsel. I gad the roast beet salad and the fennel encrusted seared ahi tuna. Both were delicious. And I cannot fail to mention that LockKeepers brought us each a complementary glass of Prosecco almost immediately after we were seated, then brought us chocolate covered strawberries with a “Happy Anniversary” confection on the plate. Both were much appreciated. Thank you for a delightful and delicious evening@

Atmosphere was nice but somewhat dated. Seafood risotto was extremely disappointing. For $37 I expected regular size shrimp and scallops, not mini ones that didn’t taste that great. Husband got a striped bass special that was much better. Starters were eggplant rollatini and meatballs. They were pretty good but nothing special. Our experience was not what I expected given the high ratings. We will not return.

We chose to have our lunch outside because it was a lovely day. However, even though we were sitting furthest from the road at a high top table, the traffic noise was so loud it was difficult to talk even with only 2 people. Next time, we will forego the ambience of dining outside and stay in to keep the noise level in check. New wonders if there was a way to install noise barriers around the porch to keep the truck traffic a few octaves below what we heard.

We were so happy to return to Lockkeeper's post pandemic shutdown for a special weekday lunch for our group of 6. We arrived a little early for our reservation (following a family funeral). The host did not blink an eye or fuss over the early arrival & we were seated immediately. Our server was incredibly attentive and considerate of our situation...providing plenty of time and space to have our lunch. The food was generally very good (default expectation with Lockkeeper's). The lunch crowd had the main dining room about 2/3 full (nice to see!). It was a little noisy but in a good way. It all felt so normal. Despite all we're reading about staffing issues and quality of service, Lockkeeper's provided a great service team and lunch. So happy I made the choice to drive over. Thank you all!

Anniversary dinner ate outside. Menu limited. Seafood risotto good, veal chop too pounded and tough as it was definitely over cooked. Perhaps under broiler too long as it is covered in sauce and cheese. Music over speakers kept cutting in and out which killed the normal vibe. Service ok.

Fifty-third Wedding Anniversary. Restaurant was well prepared for our special night. Excellently prepared dinners, soup and special chiefs salad.
Diane was out attentive server. She is very conversational without being intrusive.
Wait staff, manager all wishing us a happy anniversary.
Valet worked on the rain, poor young man earned his keep.

Lockkeepers is constantly excellent throughout the years.

The seat cushions need to be replaced. While the table, a mistake was made on one of the entrees, A male waiter came over and remove an idem from one plane and replaced it with another idem. Waiter should have remove the plates and took over from sight. second a customer at the table knocked over a water glass, the response was quick, however the water left ice cubes on the floor.

Service was great.
No AC, but the server kept water in our glasses and always made sure we were comfortable.
And no one hurried us out the door despite closing up.
Thank you!!! Hope the AC’s back on!!
