Had a great weekday lunch. The menu had a great variety of food and the price was excellent for downtown Minneapolis. We sat at the bar and had excellent service!

The Local had a large number of people when my girlfriend and I visited - but it did not feel crowded to us and the server did an excellent job. We just had apps, drinks and conversation. Highly recommend their sausage rolls.

Good menu: quality ingredients and variety. Service was responsive and friendly. A little pricey fr what we got. I'd go back.

The Local is located in the heart of the busiest section of the Nicollet Mall. During the warm months, you can sit outside on the Mall. It features a wonderful wood bar, with attentive bartenders who genuinely take care of you. The food that I have tried is always delicious. My two favorites are the curried chicken and the fish...

I was here for a conference with 4 other friends. It was packed, and through 2 of us went ahead to get a table we still waited for 20 minutes on a week night. The prices and food were good value. If you are looking for Walleye fish and chips this is the place. You couldn’t really have a conversation... More

I was here right after work, and the whole place was packed. I felt old, it seemed like everyone was in their mid-late 20's, which is an age I passed 20 years ago. The food was good, they have a pretty good selection in their menu, I just wasn't in the mood to sit at a place that was as... More

Went on a Saturday night, after trying to get into the Christmas market downtown, but it was too crowded, so we ended up at the Local, along with everyone else...very crowded. Our waitress was really friendly and efficient even though it was crazy busy. The good was good, tasty! I had the mini burgers. Fun atmosphere, friendly and good food!

This was my second time visiting, and I'll definitely go again next time I get a chance. The atmosphere is an upscale old-fashioned bar. You really have to wander around to take it all in. We ordered an assortment of appetizers -- all delish. And our drinks were amazing. I know from our previous visit that their bartenders know their... More
