Visiting family and wanted to eat in a non chain restaurant so my sister recommended you. Were not disappointed! Great drink values, must have been happy hour? Gluten free offerings satisfied a person that is medically wheat intolerant. Good selection of vegetarian, also. Pasta dish was nothing special, though. Bar was quite active, and service there was quick, and efficient.... More

We tried this place out for the first time tonight. The service really gets 2.5 stars. It took longer than it should have to get our drink order and the drinks (a little over 15 mins). Didn't get plates with the appetizer or the pizza. The pretzel bites were pretty plain but better if you add salt. I wouldn't get... More

We enjoy this restaurant. It is an easy walk for us and we eat out a couple of times a week. We recently visited with some out of town guests. We loved the zucchini fries. Two of the specials of the week were sold out. This happened to us the last time we were there as well. My turkey avocado... More

I'm usually a person who will give a restaurant another chance to prove themselves if I experience bad food or service. Having been in the senior restaurant management ranks for 35 years I realize that things can and will go wrong from time to time and as long as the on site managers make it right for the guest then...

Love this place! The food is delicious! I've had the bison burger and the cod fillets and was highly impressed. Can't wait to try the pizza and various other items. They have an extensive list of side items too. I love that this place uses fresh local ingredients whenever possible!

This is the kind of place one would never stop if driving by. The front of the building is really one of a diner. Location in downtown Powell, OH is not the most convenient unless you're heading for the Columbus Zoo or coming from Sawmill Rd toward Lewis Center. However, it's one of my preferred places for a leisurely meal... More

Friendly and helpful staff, excellent drinks, outdoor patio ambience is lovely and the food was delicious, though we were disappointed that several items were already sold out on the menu even though it was 7 pm

Food was great tasting but temperature was off and could have been much warmer. Atmosphere was great and a large selection of beers on tap!

My rating of local roots is the average of a couple visits, one very good, one not so good. Over the past few years I have found this establishment to be the most inconsistent restaurant in Powell. And talking to neighbors, I'm not alone. When the Turkey, Bacon, Avocado sandwich has a nice portion of sliced turkey breast and avocado... More
