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

Beer and English breakfast at 06:00? I think so! Great place to meet up with fellow futbol fans and catch a EPL match. Make sure you don't make the mistake of wearing Man U gear...

This place has promise.. A great location and a beautiful building, but not well managed. We were there on a Saturday night. We walked in (no reservation), and were told we had a 30-45 minute wait. Not a big deal, but as we looked for a place to wait, we noticed no fewer than 7 empty tables. They told me... More

Whether you are wanting a place for 2 people or a party of 50+ The Local is the place to go. The atmosphere is the best I have ever visited. Food is great. Drinks are the best in the business. Service is friendly and fun! If you are in visiting Minneapolis this is the best place to visit.

My colleagues and I had a fabulous time at the bar. We sipped a couple of drinks, ate the AMAZING hot pretzels and had a really fun time chatting with our bartender Matt! We returned for lunch and devoured bowls of homemade soup, amazing salads and delicious fish. We were once again entertained by Matt and had lots of fun!... More

We were able to reserve a back room at The Local for a group of 20 for dinner/birthday party. Everyone ordered off the menu and got seperate checks for food/drinks. Rueben, Pot Roast dinner, Sheperds PIe and meatloaf dinners were all homecooked and served hot. Great selection of beer and whiskeys too. Will definitely go back when downtown Minneapolis.

Wonderful atmosphere, food and drinks. We always visit when we come in to town and usually end up at the Local a couple of times.

This is a fabulous restaurant. I enjoyed this twice during our stay in Minneapolis. First, for beer & bar food. The second time was more of a meal with a large group. I had the Reuben for dinner and it was HUGE - and I ate the WHOLE thing because I simply had nowhere to keep the leftovers, so might... More
