I was in town for business and staying over by the convention center. I found this place walking around downtown. A great Irish pub with a nice atmosphere. They have a lot of bar seating and attentive staff.

I Do! The Local has a perfect atmosphere and the decor transports you to Ireland. They have pretty good happy hour specials on food and drinks. The pretzels were fantastic! My husband had the chicken pot pie and loved. I had a chicken sandwich that was a little on the dry side, but the side of mashed potatoes were perfect... More

Worth considering when you are downtown. A little hard to reach since they are tearing up Nicollet but worth the effort. Cozy and reasonable

Grabbed a quick lunch here with a client. The Ruebens were excellent with melt in your mouth corned beef and outstanding butternut squash soup. Excellent service.

This was a cool pub with lots of woodwork and the decor is just what you'd expect. The food was excellent, I had the bangers and mash and while the peas were incorporated into the mashed potatoes instead of a more common Colcannon potatoes, it was really good. Others had the walleye sandwich and said it was excellent. The food... More

We went there for dinner when we were in town for a meeting. We had the pot roast, which the waiter described as their signature dish. Very good. A little salty for my taste, but my mother probably would have been adding salt. The meat was very tender and the root vegetables were nice and firm, not mushy. I was... More

This is an excellent casual mid-priced dinning establishment. Service was great and the food was very tasty. It has a sports bar atmosphere with lots of TVs. I was there on a Saturday afternoon with many college football games were available.

My husband and I first visited The Local 5 years ago when we were in town for a Vikings game. Granted, I was pregnant at the time, but I fell in love with this place and their weekend brunch. Creamy hashbrowns, vegetable egg bake, carmel rolls, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, oatmeal, eggs - my mouth waters just thinking about it.... More

Staying at a Downtown hotel we noticed so many Irish pubs we decided to create our own walking pub tour. We ended at The Local where we planned on eating along with sampling their brews. Very cozy atmosphere- I wished we could have sat in one of their private nooks! Food was well liked by all 6 in our party-... More

Exquisite traditional Irish pub won't disappoint for food or drink. Compact menu but authentic fare offered in normal portions instead of a mountain! Smaller menu usually means better prepared food. I really liked this place.
