I will rate this well for the atmosphere and the selection of beer on offer, it seems like a great place to hang out in Medicine Hat. But I was very careful about selecting Gluten Free menu options and still left feeling sick which was unfortunate. But it is a pub so I take my chances. The food is tasty,... More

My family and I have been coming here virtually every Friday for three ýears. I love the warm friendly environment and staff, and the fact that I can rely on a consistent Rare (blood on the plate) steak sandwich!

Got to the restaurant early enough to get a booth. We came to enjoy the food based on a recommendation and to watch one of the World Series games. Plenty of TVs to view your preferred sport.

Busy place! Only had to wait about 10 mins for a seat. We got a huge booth for us 2 which was great! Food was awesome and well presented. Staff pretty friendly not not as attentive as should have been. I had to search for someone for napkins and condiments. Overall a good experience.

This pub has a decent menu and well prepared dishes. It has the best burgers in the downtown area. I was impressed by the large selection of draft beer and high quality bourbon. Relaxed pub with good service.

It's our "go to" for a business lunch, a date night or work party. Have yet to try something we don't fully enjoy!

I love the patio area at Local. Great place for drinks and fish tacos. Service is good, and prices are reasonable. If you hungry go for the nachos. I think they will feed a small family. There burgers are also fresh and wonderful.
