“After 12 hours on the motorcycle, this was perfect”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Want a really good steak, cooked to perfection? That's the way I describe our meal at Local Restaurant and Bar.
Each of the four of us ordered a different steak dinner. Our plates were clean afterwards. Mine was the filet. Mmmmmmmm. Very good, perfectly cooked.
They didn't offer a baked potato per se, but there is a potato dish that is very similar. It was good, too.
Did I mention the wait staff? From the (very pretty) greeter to the bus service, all were very friendly and attentive. They helped make it a good dining experience.

The only negative (if there is one) is that it's a bit noisy. This is a challenge with people with old tired ears that use hearing aids; but not so much that it detracted from the good food and service.

“Not Just for Locals”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Our first evening in Jackson so we had no reservations, but the Local was highly recommended by our lodging host. We wound up at the bar rather than wait for a table, and were very pleased: not only with our meals, but also with the fun of visiting with fellow travelers. The bartender was very attentive and mixed a great martini. We could have ordered from the main menu but choose to try the bar menu instead; the buffalo burger was outstanding, cooked perfectly medium-rare and delicious. (First buffalo we had seen in town :-) Very pleasant ambiance, excellent service, great food. We plan to have at least one more dinner at the "Local" during this stay.

“A great experience”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Local is a sort of fancy restaurant but given that it's located in jackson hole, showing up in jeans and a button down is fine. We showed up 30 min early for our reservation but we were welcome to get a drink from the bar. The potatoes and the bison are very good. I requested a shirley temple in a wine glass since i am the only one in my family who is under 21 and wanted to fit in and the waitress was very accommodating. Very nice experience.

My family loved it so much we ate here twice. The Ribeye and Trout were amazing. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere and view of town square were priceless. Even our kids loved it ! Great for the whole family

“great place to eat”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Take your credit card as its not cheap but a really nice place to eat. With great service and some really nice food (I had the fillet mignon and my partner elk medallions with sweet potato mash, huckleberry sauce and asparagus) this is an excellent restaurant. We shared a dessert of chocolate fondue with strawberries, pineapple, melon and small doughnuts. Nice staff and definately a great place to eat
