We were downtown for brunch. Didn't want the day to end so walked around ended up here for after meal drinks. Service was slow but only one server. She was friendly after initial greeting. Smoking allowed upstairs. Cute little place with lots of rare whiskey. ( pappy van winkle). Give it a try if not in a hurry.

The atmosphere was great, and the beer was good, but the food was average. Cluck Yeah chicken sandwich was really good. The brussel sprouts were beyond charred and inedible. The pretzels were also over cooked, but the cheese sauce was good. Cool place, but it won't be high on the list to return to.

Someone has actually recommended a different restaurant to me and my boyfriend for brunch during our stay in Memphis. The wait was too long since we hadn't made a reservation so we wandered on down the street and found this gem. The only thing better than the cool atmosphere was the food! The food was simply but extremely well executed... More

Place is great to go for drinks and a food with friends. The upstairs bar is the best part especially during the evening hours. Place is great to sit down for a meal when not load during the evening.

New seeating inside looks noce but booth seating layout puts even a four hundred lb person too far away from the edge of the table. The fish on the Fish and Chips platter is excellent;lightly breaded and crisp full fillet. The chips are shoestring taters and not eventful. Their pint night special on beers looked like a good deal until... More

We sat outside, look forward to a nice meal in downtown Memphis. Ordered the special which included a soup/salad, entrée, and dessert. After waiting for over 30 minutes for our first course, my soup was ice cold and only half the cup. We had to ask the waitress repeatedly for another drink.. My husband and I ordered the same entrée,... More

Our hotel did not carrying Fox Sports and so couldn't watch a playoff game. All the locals recommended we watch the game at Local. What a fun neighborhood-type joint. Good food, cold beer and great service! And the Cubs won!!

After wondering around Beale Street on a hot afternoon, we wanted a cold beer. First place we tried didn't open until 3 and the server who opened the door suggested Local...glad she did. Staff was friendly and informative about places to go and the beer was local and cold. Outside seating available but it was too warm for us.

Local had the most people sitting outside on the South Main St, so that helped our decision process! The service, drinks & hot pretzels w/ pimento cheese was excellent!

We were in the area, hot, tired, and hungry, and stopped in for some food. The music was so painfully loud when we first walked in that we almost stepped right back out. Decided to give it a try and ended up ordering burgers because the other entrees seemed much too pricey for bar food, especially with music so loud... More
