I had the pulled pork sandwich and the beer made by the owner. Both were delicious. Great service even when it got very crowded with large groups. Billiards tables and other entertainment. I really liked the atmosphere here and was very comfortable with my seat...More

Stopped in here with the family for dinner, and the BBQ was awesome. Staff was very friendly, and service was excellent. You know a place is good when you see a black smoker outside cooking all day long. Hats off the Localfolk, well done!

Good food, good beer, attentive staff and a large screen TV to watch Superbowl. Need I say more? Yes, Trip Advisor says I have to. Haven't they heard of a succinct review?

The place opened at 5 , they did initially accommodate a party of 12 which grew to 19. We asked for an additional table , but the staff refused, even though the crown coming in wasn't that large. Typical apps, 1 LB wing size gives...More

We went during the off season, so the place was less crowded than I imagine it is in ski season or in summer. Food is decent. Excellent selection of craft beers and sipping whiskey. Friendly service. It seemed like this was a place frequented by...More
