Dropped by with the family on a Saturday afternoon. It was pretty busy, but they are on a brunch menu on the weekend until 3. We were caught by surprise as it wasn't clear in the website which menu was actually in effect. "Brunch" means no key things like Shepard's Pie. We asked the waitress if we could order off... More

My wife and I go here a few times a year, and we are never disappointed. It is usually crowded at lunch time, but we have always been seated promptly. The food is Irish Pub Food, with the Fish and Chips being their most popular dish. It is outstanding in quality, and the service has always been terrific. It's located... More

"The Local" stands out in Saratoga--a diverse menu comprised of quality offerings, some locally sourced ingredients, an excellent selection of craft beers, and reasonable prices which create good value. Constant Companion and I met up with some friends for lunch and enjoyed a two hour, unrushed reunion. That is the kind of atmosphere to expect here. Constant Companion ordered a... More

We enjoyed a beautiful brunch. Traditional options with flair, the Meaty Mary is perfect for spicy, Bloody Mary fans! Lots of sides to round out your meal. Fun pub atmosphere.

We heard about this place from someone who lives in the Saratoga area and before heading home we decided to give it a go and we are very glad we did! This place is very busy and for good reason the food is wonderful with an Irish twist. The bar is right in the dining area or visa versa! There... More

Went here recently on a Saturday afternoon. This is your local hipster restaurant/bar. Many options for draft beers, even carrying some rare items. Went with a classic comfort food for lunch, grilled cheese and fries. It was so tasty! Nice local artisan bread and delicious cheese. Grilled just right. I mostly go here for drinks but an occasional meal is... More

It really does not matter how many times we come here, whether we eat off the regular menu or try one of the daily specials, we have never been disappointed with the quality and consistency. This time it was Taco Tuesday special for me and the bangers and mash for my wife. She passed the comment that the bangers (English... More

We came for brunch on a Sunday and the place was packed. No wonder, the food was delicious and the service excellent.
