Went here for lunch on a cold, winter day. Wasn't too busy and the atmosphere was nice and cozy. Menu is simple, but lots of options for gluten free dining! Food was good, service was OK. Parking in the summer when the patio is open would be challenging.

Best nachos we've EVER had. Our meals were absolutely delicious - the loveliest meal we've had in a long time (and great value too). Top notch.

I have eaten at Local numerous times and the food is always okay. People either love it or don't when you ask about Local but I fall more in the middle. As I said, the food is good but it's not WOW and unfortunately there are not a lot of choices and I do find that it can be overpriced.... More

Always impressed with the delicious gluten free version of the Chicken Tacos, they are very tasty, filling ( I order 2) and make me want to come back for more :). Even though it was busy in the restaurant, the service was fast and the server was friendly.

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

Love the atmosphere, menu is a bit light. What they do serve is all pretty good. Outside patio in the summer is nice.

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! Here we have found Wait staff who cried when my wife passed, Managers and a Head Chef who have no hesitation... More

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. We all ordered something different and the portion sizes were large and the food tasty. The wait staff was attentive. The Caesar's were... More
