We enjoyed our evening meal here, in downtown Medicine Hat. The food was served promptly, and was tasty. They had a wide choice of beers, and the service was friendly.

Every time I dine at Local Pub the food is fresh, served hot and made to order. The portions are generous, so make sure to go when your hungry. Hands down the Best chicken sandwich I HAVE EVER HAD!

Great place for a bite to eat. Typical pub, except the food was fantastic! Can’t go wrong with the warm house made tortilla chips and salsa. Huge burgers, very good drink selection. Would easily go again.
