Located between Connolly’s and Sip, this bar has great space and great prices. Heard a few locals ordering food to go, so we have decided to come back to have lunch tomorrow.

Tennesse mule was very good, worth the price. The pulled pork mac n cheese was wonderful, not the biggest portion but it was enough. If I am to return to CLT, I will definiely go to The Local again.

The value for Taco Tuesday is wonderful. Nice variety and you can mix and match as well. Easy access from work downtown and a fun atmosphere.

On our way to Punta Cana, we got stuck in Charlotte for the night. We toured the EpiCenter area and stumbled across this jewel. For our group, we like the small local places and jukeboxes! Staff was very friendly, the food was great, and the...drinks reasonable.More

Sadly this might be the only place in center city charlotte that has the combo of great service, good food, good drinks......affordable. The staff and owner are great. The manager is always around and making sure every patron is noticed. The "locals" really do go...here, as I can attest.More

Typical bar menu though I thought tacos were good. The rest was nothing special. Bartender was extremely inattentive even though there were only a few in the restaurant. She was also very uninformed concerning the menu items and their detail or was so looking towards...the shift change she could not care. Not the way to bring in new business. I will not be back.More

This place has it all! Great atmosphere, delicious food, ice cold local beer and a friendly staff! Lunch specials range from $5-$8. $5 appetizers Monday-Friday 4-7pm and 11pm-midnight (late night food!!). Don't even get me started on Brunch!! Try the Almond Crusted Chicken and Waffles...or the house-made Shrimp and Grits. Definitely coming back for Movie Monday, Taco Tuesday, Trivia, Karaoke and Live Music!More

Tuesday - $2.00 tacos - come on! Not your typical Uptown joint. Its a little on the dark side especially stepping in from the blazing sun. I have never had a problem here.

Typical bar. Nice bartenders and bouncers. I would return, they played great music and had great bar specials. The bathrooms were clean and the feel for the bar was great too
