Local 16 has a good bottomless brunch deal with a decent menu. However, our waitress was less than ideal. She was a little rude and would disappear for a long time, preventing us from getting more drinks. Local 16 is good for accommodating large groups,...More

Great atmosphere for a weekend brunch. Sat on the roof and was originally afraid it would be too hot but the cover definitely shades well. Definitely a place to be adventurous and try something new at a really great price. My only knock are the...More

I had booked Local 16 for my birthday brunch. I booked online three weeks in advance for 15 guests for a Saturday at 1:45 pm. I had specifically requested the roof top.. because it was a special occasion. I proceeded to double check and called...More

Went there for a brunch on a Saturday. Was busy and the unlimited drinks has its appeal. The food was good. The only down side was the noise (music plus people).

Came here for a friend's bachelorette brunch and despite the unlimited drinks for $27, I wasn't utterly impressed with this place. This is how they lure you in: $27 for unlimited mimosas, bellinis, bloody marys, and sangrias and one entree. All of this has to...More

I went here for brunch. First thing is first, they need to figure out their hours. Online it says they open at 11am on weekends, but the posted hours on the front door say they open at 10:30am. The place was packed, given its location....More

The good news: the place takes reservations and, if you are at brunch, you get the table for two hours. There is a large brunch menu for drink and food selections. The bad news: "Bottomless" for the drinks is true if you order mimosas; beer...More
