“A real surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We wanted something late night after 10pm and found this pub open. What a great surprise to have some good bar food and fast, friendly service.

“Take-out food is so-so.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I ordered a chicken pot-pie to go. I was disappointed at the portion and the taste. I also waited a long time for the food. But, it was on a Sunday. Perhaps, they did not have full staff. Many places nearby were closed.

“the food is good, but the service is slow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I had fish and chips there two days ago. The fish tasted really good. However, it took us way to long for the waitress to bring us our bill. By the way, this is not a quiet place.

This is a vibrant, Irish pub. Even though it was busy, the staff were very efficient and friendly. Good pub food menu.

“Great lunch, even better people watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We were lucky to visit Mpls during one of the first warm weekends this year, and we had lunch outside at The Local. Our waitress at the Bachelor Farmer had mentioned it as another great place to try, and she was right! They have some light, fresh salads as well as things for someone with a bigger appetite. I had one of the "wee" lunches and it was perfect for me. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the people walk up and down Nicollet Mall. Honestly, I forgot it was an "Irish pub" - it felt more like a nice café, given the food and the outdoor seating.
