If you're looking for a local farm-to-table spot, look no further. Local Roots should fit the bill! I came here to meet a few friends for brunch and was surprisingly pleased with the selection, ambience and overall quality of my meal. I highly recommend a mimosa, the eggs benedict, the bibb salad or the brioche french toast. You can't go... More

I went here with my co-workers and we definitely enjoyed our meal. The artisinal cheese plate was delicious -- came with some jam, homemade crackers, and sunflower seeds! I ordered the fried chicken, and it was different than I expected, but still tasty. I wouldn't recommend ordering it if you're looking for a more traditional take on restaurant fried chicken....

We love this restaurant and have eaten here a number of times, often after taking in a movie at The Grandin. We have never been disappointed. The wait staff is well trained, efficient & pleasant. The food is interesting, beautifully presented and delicious. We also love that all is locally sourced and good vegetarian options are available for family members... More

My husband and I went to Local Roots (without a reservation) and they were able to find us a seat. We had the most beautiful salads with edible flowers. Our entrees were also very appealing to our eyes as well as our taste buds. Dessert was a treat, with three different sorbets. We had great service and our server was... More

Recently dined here with a couple considering a move to the area. They are vegetarians, and my wife and I keep meatless Fridays, so we decided on Local Roots based on Trip Advisor. We had a delicious tomato plate (not on the menu - our server brought it up) and an artisanal cheese plate while enjoying the respectable local beer... More

On a recent house hunting trip to Roanoke, we had lunch at Local Roots. Marvin was very friendly and shared info about the city. The food was divine. We had the fried pork belly sandwich! Awesome!! The tomatoes and lettuce was so fresh liked they had just picked it out of the garden. Can't wait to try dinner there.

All of the positive reviews are spot on! My husband and I visit Local Roots frequently and have only had positive experiences. The service is by far the best in Roanoke and the attention to detail by the wait staff, bartenders, chefs, and even the owner is more than evident in everything they do - from the welcoming atmosphere to...

I had brunch on Sunday August 31 at restaurant Local Roots with my son, daughter-in-law and two children (boy 5 and a half, girl three years-old). I have eaten there a number of times in the 9 years my son and family have lived in Roanoke, always pleased with the children-friendly atmosphere and great service, but altogether not overwhelmed with...

This past weekend we had the pleasure of eating at Local Roots twice. On Friday night there were 3 adults and the meal was excellent. My husband and I had fish and our son had steak. The food is locally sourced. All of us enjoyed the food and the innovative preparations. Very nice presentations, also. Water glasses were kept filled,... More

My family including two pre-teen kids recently did a driving trip through Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway. Never been to Roanoke in the past. I have to say visiting Local Roots definitely was one of the highlights of the trip, and this restaurant serves some of the best food I have ever had. Like many previous reviewers have said,... More
