The restaurant is beautiful and the staff and our waiter was great. The food was good but not worth the price. I was a bit disappointed.

The Halibut was good but nothing else really came with meal to eat. Would have left hungry had we not gotten the Calamari appetizer. Lasagna was excellent and alot of quantity. I had the mix green salad which was good but could have used some iceberg.

I can’t remember the last time I have ever been treated so well in any restaurant! The staff was amazing! I took myself to lunch to celebrate my work anniversary, and they really made it feel like an extra special occasion! The lunch portion was huge and the view was beautiful. My waitress was wonderful, and I wish I had gotten her name so I can ask for her again. She was especially helpful in accommodating me because I have a severe fish allergy. She made sure the chef was aware and found a way for him to prepare my meal in the safest possible manner. Even the valet sitting outside by the front door was courteous and helpful and very friendly. I cannot say enough nice things about my experience except that next time I will go in the summer so I can enjoy the patio!

First of all I would like to say that LockKeepers has been one of my favorite restaurant over the past decade. I checked their website every week waiting for them to re-open. They remodeled during COVID-19 shutdown. The new window treatment and lights over the bar were the first thing I noticed and are a welcome upgrade. They removed the wall between the bar and formal dining room to make a more modern atmosphere. The downside is they now have the noise from the bar in the dining room. I ordered my go to Seafood Fra Diavolo. I was very disappointed. The pasta was undercooked and doughy and the sauce was bland. I love hot and spicy food and this dish would normally make my forehead perspire. I did not complain and ate the dish. Most people would probably enjoy this dish as prepared however after experiencing this dish eight to ten times per year over the past ten years, I think I know how it should taste. I am not giving up and will return in four weeks to try it again. I am crossing my fingers that they get it right next time.

Atmosphere was amazing as well as the service! Brian is the best GM hands down. The food (my $45) steak was burnt and was not seasoned well.

We arrived on time for are reservation and where seated immediately.the server greeted us told us the specials and took are drink order .the server came back wished us happy anniversary and gave us two glasses of complementary champagne or so we thought . We had calamari as a appetizer very good. The wife had chicken scallopini with mashed potatoes and green beans she said it was excellent. I had the scallops with risotto very good .the food service and atmosphere are very good I would recommend this restaurant . Only thing I thought was strange was the champagne they gave us for are anniversary was put on are bill remember we did not order it they just brought it to are table just thought that was tacky. Good restaurant really good food enjoy

First time dining here and was not disappointed! A recent renovation inside provided a beautiful backdrop for a stunning meal. I recommend the Scallops w/ mushroom risotto. A perfect fall pairing with the harvest salad. Start your dining experience with the calamari. They infuse kalamata olives and sum dried tomatoes along side the lightly breaded calamari . Need I say more? Our service was five star making our overall experience a lasting memory to share with friends. We will definitely be back soon!

We were here for our 20th wedding anniversary. As soon as we were seated, we were each served a glass of champagne. After eating a very delicious dinner, we were served a tray of giant strawberries along with some chocolate dipping sauce. This kind of service in our minds is outstanding! It showed us that the staff at Lock Keepers really care about their customers. We definitely will return....keep up the great work!

Service was fantastic and the ambiance was nice. The food was only so-so for the price. I had the lobster ravioli and my husband had the chicken scallopini. Portions were decent sized, but the food was just lackluster. The mushroom soup we had as an appetizer was like watered down baby food.. just a purée of mushrooms and cream with very little flavor, aside from the truffle oil (which, as always, is just an overpowering musky flavor). Overall, we aren’t likely to try this place again, although the steaks looked like they’re probably good.

Very pleasant and fun atmosphere at this establishment

The service was excellent

Most important the food was served timely and it was delicious

We asked to split a meal and they did this for us in the kitchen .Sometimes this request is made a big deal but the LockKeepers staff were most accommodating

Great experience
