I ate here twice on this trip. It seems to have slipped a bit since my visit two years ago. The pulled pork sandwich (14) was OK but quite sloppy on the soft white bun. The key lime pie (7) was OK too, though I don't really know how a good one tastes. The halibut and chips (1 pc 18)... More

Good location, and even eating on the patio, was clean and decently quiet. Good food, nice gluten free choices, and service was quick. Would go back, but wouldnt go out of my way if something else interesting came up.

We ate at The Local in Victoria, BC on 4/18 and it was wonderful. Really nice service and relaxing atmosphere. Catered to our kids well, also. A great stop off the cruise ship in the Inner Harbor district. Great views also.

Ordered 2 local pints, pancetta chicken burger and a turkey club sandwhich for under $50! Which is not so easy in Victoria. Patio was the perfect spot to sit, just a little crowded. BEST turkey club I have ever had! Service was quick and friendly. Will definitely go back!

Went here and decided to share appetizers and have a beer. Service was attentive and quick given the place was hopping inside and out. Given this is a tourist town the owners might like to spruce the interior up in the off-season. Portions were large and typical pub food. On one wall is a copy of a mug shot of... More

Good friendly service, great ambiance on the patio, and the food was fresh and tasty. They have a very simple compact menu of dishes that should appeal to the majority. Everything looks good and our meals tasted great. Many of the menu items have a refreshing twist on a traditional meal.
