Gnocchi with short rib ragu was rich and delicious but I ate 1/3 of it. My husband loved long bone veal chop but ate 1/2 of it. Great food and atmosphere but be really hungry. Parking on a Friday was challenging.

We went for a splurge meal for a change. It had been years since we have visited LockKeepers to see if it was up to standard. We shared an appetizer of mussels which seemed a bit off. One of them was not even open. When...More
