Being a vegetarian, I was reluctant when my family suggested that we go to Local roots. After being there, I have to say that the food is incredibly tasty and diverse. Vegetarians do not be afraid, they have salads, pastas, veggie burger, calzones and a pizza to die for. Go and give it a shot. You will become a believer.

We were decided to finally try this place, since we have heard so many people talk about this restaurant. We ate outside on the patio, which was good considering my kids were all over the place. We had the patio to ourselves until the end of lunch. The food was really good. We really liked the pretzel sticks and cheese... More

Thirty of us had dinner at a reserved long table outdoors on a very busy Saturday night. Simply said: all the food (individual orders - including my light crusted calzone full of cooked-just-right vegetables - but on one check) was delicious and the service was very good. Expect Local Roots to be busy, a bit noisy, and a very good... More

Fun spot for lunch, with lively atmosphere and a huge menu of fresh, locally sourced foods. We were pleased with all entrees, but most impressed by the vegetable sides, which tasted as though they had been plucked form the vines moments before arriving at our table.

"Local" is a great bar/restaurant for everyone. Casual, lots of regulars, above avg. bar food but some more intriguing fare as well. Wish the TVs were better placed for sports, but you can't have everything. Live music outside in evenings. Reasonable prices, full bar with great cocktails. Can't go wrong!

This is a nice, large restaurant in old Powell. Near public parking, but also has its own large lot. Ample seating inside and a lovely patio. Food is very good, and if you're into craft beer, they have a huge selection. Service is fast and attentive, prices are reasonable.

We have been "regulars" for 3 years. Why??? The food is great, the beer list out of this world, the service and staff outstanding, and the atmosphere super fun. In the warm weather months, the fun is amped up due to the Beer Garden and live music. Local Roots has added a bit of a hip vibe to Powell!
