“Awesome twist on dinner”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Visiting Jackson with a few friends this summer we were looking for a place to enjoy a nicer sit-down meal. The Local was a great find. Service was prompt and very friendly. We had reservations due to the busy season which I would recommend as this is a popular restaurant. The ambience was a perfect balance of mountain town/fine dining. You can come here dressed up or apré-ski it seemed. There was a mix of couples, groups, families, etc. Expect to pay around $75-$100 for a night out for 2 (worth it).

The food was cooked perfectly and we were all impressed with the assortment. From Elk medallions to wild game pasta the menu was vast and included an array of food many people don't see on a regular basis. If you visit and aren't used to Buffalo burgers and Elk meat then don't miss out on the opportunity!

“A choice we will repeat”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Our group of 4 ate here for our first dinner in Jackson and we were all happy with our restaurant selection. Although tourist traffic was very light the last week of October Local was busy on a Tuesday night. Service was excellent and the meals we chose were attractive and flavorful. Several of us had the trout and were slightly disappointed by the preparation of the dish. It was not a whole fish but pieces of filets over a potato dish that was a bit overpowering for the fish. In all it was a good meal just not what we pictured based on the description.

All of us felt that we would return sine the overall experience was good.

“Good service, good wine selection, good food. Solid choice”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We've eaten here on several occasions, and have always enjoyed the food. While the place has a diner sort of feel, the food is very good, and they have a great wine selection. The menu is eclectic- offering wasabi tempura tuna and Philly cheesesteak, for example, but it is well prepared and fresh. We like this place for lunch.

“A pleasant dinner with excellent service”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I selected Local for our anniversary. Although crowded, our reserved table was waiting. Our server was excellent, the food was good and the atmosphere was lively but nice. I loved the Elk. My husband's steak with pomme frites was okay, the charcuterie was excellent. And although the fried Brussels sprouts sounded good, they were slightly greasy. I will return to try more.

“OMG is right!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

They can take something as simple as chicken or pork chops and make it an unforgettable experience. Great ambience, terrific food and wine, and the food is wonderful, inventive, but not too complicated. Great service as well.
