The best burger I've had in a long time! Not only was the burger good but it was cooked to perfection. I loved lunch! I'll be back soon!

Wonderful food and courteous staff. Chef was willing to accomodate dietary restrictions but I found something on the menu I didn't need adjusted and it was delicious. Definately suggest ordering a specialty cocktail, they are delicious! The restaurant can get a little noisy when busy but wasn't an issue for us. Street parking is limited, due to the movie theatre... More

Cute restaurant in a rather eclectic part of town. As the name implies, they use local ingredients when possible. We visited twice.Both times were for lunch when, interestingly enough, it is Happy Hour. Gotta love that. The first time we were very impressed but a bit disappointed the second time. The first time, we sat at the bar. Had a... More

My husband and I went to Local Roots after getting a gift card for a date night. We'd heard great reviews and were so looking forward to the evening. The atmosphere was nice, we had a great seat at the window looking out onto the romantic evening street of the Grandin Area. We had reservations and were seated quickly, but... More

We made reservations and enjoyed a nice seat for 2. The table was small and close to others but the atmosphere was comfortable so we didn't feel crowded or that we couldn't carry on a conversation. The fresh ingredients and smaller portions size really make this meal about quality over quantity. My husband and I left here raving to anyone... More

It's rare that I give restaurants five-star ratings, so often do they not live up to expectations. I could say a lot of things but none more meaningful than my wife and I had the kind of meal that we hope that we provide at our own restaurant. This was the best meal that I have had in 2017 that...

One of our favorite local restaurants. The blackened drum was just right. Grits cooked to perfect consistency. Desserts not too sweet, yet tasty. Service was friendly, efficient, and very professional.
