    Cocktails were great & they have a nice wine list. Loved the appetizers we chose…beet salad, stuffed peppers (a little bland), beef carpaccio fantastic. Both ordered the seafood risotto & it was very disappointing…undercooked risotto & overcooked seafood. Our server Zeke was very attentive.

    My husband and I LOVED this restaurant! The setting is romantic, the service and our waiter were top notch, and the food was incredible! We enjoyed stuffed peppers for an appetizer and shared squid ink pasta with lump crab and also shared lobster risotto for dinner... this was the best risotto we have ever had. Finished it off with a delicious espresso dessert. Kudos to the chef! Everything was amazing.

    We had a delightful meal and we highly commend the staff and particularly our server (Ashton?) who provided an attentive, engaging, knowledgeable, and humorous addition to our meal, without being intrusive in any manor. We appreciated feeling no pressure to rush our meal and enjoyed the ambiance and ability to have easy communication with our dinner guests without strain to hear or be heard.

    Server Sandy was great. We had a wonderful Valentines dinner, and everything was delicious. Meal started with a garden salad for my husband and the Caesar salad for me accompanied by fresh bread and butter. We both had the seafood risotto for dinner, which was outstanding as usual. For dessert, we shared a piece of cheesecake and a special pizzella with chocolate sauce treat. Wonderful evening.

    My wife,daughter and I went for a Valentine's day lunch. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable regarding the menu and wines. We started with cocktails which were shaken/stirred perfectly. We followed them with another round of cocktails 😁. Appetizers were huge! Had we known we might have opted to share. We bravely ate our way to the entrees. My wife opted for ribeye with parmesan potatoes. My daughter tried Gnocchi and I went for Linguine and clams. All of our choices were delicious. Coffees followed with dessert. Despite having lived in the area for 10 years , this was our first visit. We will be back. Upscale delicious dining . Thoroughly recommend Lockeepers.

    The server, Sandy, was really welcoming, friendly, and did an excellent job to tailor make my wife’s order (because the kitchen creates each dish to order). The halibut special was phenomenal and chicken dish my wife had was tasty and enough for a second meal. The limoncello tiramisu was also delicious. Such a good experience!

    Outstanding eggplant rollatini as an appetizer and entrees of salmon and spaghetti fra diavolo. The service was very good, but could be a bit better. I was asked if I wanted whiskey or bourbon in my old fashion and did not know Makers when I told him my bourbon preference. LockKeepers is a great place for date night or special occasion with friends or family. I highly recommend for incredible dinner.
