Excellent food, creative dishes, fresh ingredients, great atmosphere. The bartenders do a wonderful job. The interior is warm and bright. The location in the Grandin area is just an added plus. Don't miss this place. Dan

Whether lunch or dinner, Local Roots never disappoints. The food is fresh and local. The menu changes to include seasonal favorites. I’ve never had bad service and the atmosphere is lovely.

while the food is very good and the atmosphere is also very inviting, the restaurant is on the pricey side.

We stopped here on our way to Tennessee. I'm not big on special drinks but did get one of their house specials and it well balanced, not too sweet or overdone. The food was very good. The dessert bread pudding was incredibly light and a...More

The bar menu is a little less expensive - but the hamburger is one of the best in Roanoke. The regular menu varies, but it's not cheap. They organize their menu by size of appetite. The medium appetite items average $7-11... More
