BRUNCH Is Exquisite!

Their brunch is so amazing! Love the concept of a farm to table restaurant. Everything was fresh and delicious. Got the eggs benedict with a regular mimosa and couldn't be more pleased. Will definitely be going back.

I love restaurants where the freshness of the food is allowed to stand out. Local Roots is such a place. We went for the Sunday dinner with a limited menu. My husband have the meatloaf which was anything but ordinary, while I enjoyed gently sautéed flounder. I don't like cabbage, but I loved it here--prepared with apple, onion and cardamom.... More

This was my first visit here with some friends. This was the best place I've down south yet! All the southern charm you'd expect. Waitress was amazing and food was of equal caliber. Can't wait to come again!

My wife and I were visiting from out of town and had dinner at Local Roots on a recent Saturday evening. We both started with their in-house mixed drinks. While both were good they each just missed the mark. My drink had rye, bitters, maple syrup, and beet juice and tasted good but was a little too sweet. I was... More

We were recent guests for a chefs tasting & wine pairin dinner. All was served with great style. Each course was presented and a brief description given . Escecially enjoyed the beef dish follwed by a yummy dessert. Would definitely go back.

This is a favorite of ours in Roanoke. My husband loves their mussels and thinks theirs are the best in town. We have never been disappointed in any of their dishes but a heads up would be desserts are quite small for the money asked so I would skip that.

Very tasty and well prepared food with local ingredients. Priced very reasonably for a three course meal. Catfish was the best ever...Wine selection is superb as well as the service. Fun to people watch in the Grandin Village too or take in a movie at the one and only Grandin Theater. Highly recommended for lunch or dinner!!

Being newer to Roanoke, we were really excited to try this quaint little place in Grandin that everyone seemed to celebrate. Sadly, despite our best efforts to make the most of it, it was a let-down. Out of three meals, the meat was tasty in two but the sides only impressed in one dish. The third dish was overpriced for... More

Tasty dishes made from locally-sourced food was about what was expected...and the price exceeded what I expected for the most part--pretty darn expensive. I'll have to say that it is difficult for me to eat out anywhere due to my highly restricted diet for health reasons: I eat a mostly vegan diet but no (or very small quantity) of any... More

Every time my husband and I manage to get a date night out, we go back and forth about where to go. Maybe we should try someplace different. Maybe we should stick with Local Roots. Every time we try the former, we're disappointed with our decision, but every time we go to Local Roots, we are nothing but pleased, satisfied... More
