Where Fire Meets Ice

At Lock and Mule our menu is centered around our enormous wood fire grill, where fire is harnessed to release all the succulent flavors of meats and vegetables freshly sourced from our network of local farmers. We also pride ourselves on crafting a portfolio of ice cold beers to suit any palette – from light sessionable lagers and ales to dark and complex experimental brews. You’ll find up to 15 beers on tap at any given time, including seasonal and limited edition beers.

General Manager Amber Auten from lock and mule


Amber Auten

I grew up in the restaurant industry, having worked in it since I was 15 years old. Over that time, I learned the ropes and worked my way up in the industry, which led me to a management position at Lock & Mule. I have enjoyed working for Tangled Roots Brewing Company and gladly accepted the role of General Manager when it was presented to me. I love the staff and being a part of the Lockport community, and look forward to providing a top notch guest experience to everyone here at Lock & Mule.
