First time we have eaten there and what a great evening . Service and food was great and Shane the Assistant General Manager really made us feel welcome. Food was superb and our waiter made sure everything was perfect. We were spending time with friends and we're not rushed at all even though the restaurant was very busy. Can't wait... More

You can tell how good a restaurant is by how full the parking lot is and the wait time...Local Roots is an excellent restaurant and the reason the parking lot is always full is because everyone else already knows what I know...the food is excellent, it's a great atmosphere with a very good children's menu (I have 3 children), and...

We have returned to this restaurant for dinner following a great lunch experience. We found the service from the entire staff to be prompt, attentive and friendly. The quality of the meals to be as advertised: locally grown produce & meat deliciously prepared and presented either hot or chilled as expected. The wait staff was extremely attentive to our needs,... More

We had an excellent dinner with a short wait which we spent in the bar. I was uber impressed that they had Crabbie's Ginger Beer which is hard to find. They also made a great ginger cocktail. Highly recommended !!!

In November 2014 I reviewed Local Roots and gave them a less than glowing review. Shortly after I posted that review I was contacted by the owner who was honestly interested and concerned about the review and the experience her restaurant left me with. We arranged to speak by phone and spent about 30 minutes discussing my experience and sharing... More

We had great service considering how busy it was that evening. The overcrowded bar was next to our table so it made our meal a bit uncomfortable with people standing so close.

We ate on the back patio on a wonderfully warm October day. Perhaps the service was a bit lacking due to everyone outside with colder weather quickly approaching. But, the service just wasn't up to par. However, we were very pleased with the food. We had a bruschetta appetizer, which had great flavor. Same can be said for my turkey,... More
