The place was packed (obviously it would for such a great place) but we found a place at the bar in a little nook area just for two. The pouting was delicious and the beers were tasty. The small secret rooms on the side were a cute fun touch. Would go back for sure.

There is a good variety of food and drinks to choose from. Great staff who are attentive and helpful. The tomato cheese soup and salad were delicious.

Pretty good place, beer selection was alright, beer-tenders were even better. It was great to have a local walleye sandwich. All in all, pretty good and I'd be willing to return again if I'm in town for a couple days.

Every item on this Irish menu looked fantastic. I chose the pot roast sandwich and ate every last bite. The atmosphere was warm and each booth offered an element of privacy. We had outstanding service and enjoyed affordable Irish dining.

Delicious food, definitely would recommend the chicken pub pie. The bison burger was good but a little smaller portion than expected. Service was friendly and quick. A great choice for a business meal or a drink with friends.

I went to The Local during Happy Hour to have drinks and a meal with a friend. The atmosphere is great. The waitress was nice. The food was delicious. It was just really crowded. I'd still go back though. Loved it.

One of my favorite spots in Minneapolis. Incredible food. I have had the meat loaf and pot roast. Cannot go wrong with either. The Irish coffee is outstanding. Will absolutely be back.

Do you like super crowded bars full of fun noisy people? watching (european) pay per view football for free on multiple screens? Lots of beers, ales, scotch and whiskey flowing? a fun urban after work scene? Look no further. If you're like me, you'll come here for cocktails during the World Cup. That's it. I can't comment on the food,... More

We came here on a getaway trip and stumbled on this place. Fun to sit outside and people watch. The 2 Gingers drink was great and we had some pretty tasty sliders. Pretty busy and took a while for simple stuff.

Thank Eric B
