The quinoa salad was average and the Irish coffee drink was okay. It is noisy like any pub and the beer is good. Service is prompt and excellent

We had a work happy hour. I showed up a little late and missed the food. However, their beer selection is quite good. The waiter stopped by a few times to get us more beverages. They cleaned the table of used dishes as soon as they were done.

This place is the epitome of a local gem. I was so psyched to stumble across this bar/restaurant. The ambiance is great, the food was awesome. I will definitely find it again next time I'm in the area. Be careful around lunchtime because this is definitely a local favorite and it was packed.

On a business trip and enjoyed both the pub setting and excellent food of the Local. Must be a great place for St. Patty's Day.

We start with the Hummus appetizer....recommend by the bartenders, exceptionally flavorful and complimented by very crispy & cold veggies and delicious warm pita bread...yummy! Weren't really too hungry se we shared the fish and chips. Lovely piece of cod, lightly battered,very flakey. They also have a really nice outside seating area if it's a nice day.

Met up with friends, enjoyed the large seating area outside. Inside is a beautiful old pub style. Food was good. Great beverage selections. Construction going on in the area but was a deterrent.

I had the bison burger and the beer cheese soup for a side. Both were excellent and reasonably priced. My coworker also liked her food. Service was very good too.

I live in Minneapolis, yet I rarely go downtown to eat. A friend came in town from Phoenix and asked where we should meet for dinner. We told her to pick a place and we'd meet them there. She did a little research on Tripadvisor and after reading the reviews she chose THE LOCAL. I had to look it up... More
