We had a wonderful locally
We had a wonderful locally grown meal for my birthday. Shared a chartruserie plate and a filet and still took plenty home. Took our time, hour and a half and never felt rushed.

It was our first time at Local,
It was our first time at Local, and we were given a great booth in the corner, where it was not too noisy. All four of us ordered different things, and we were all pleased. Game pasta was tasty and not too large. Salads were all fresh and well dressed. Service was attentive and non obtrusive. We were enthusiastic and will definitely go back.

Local the best
Great food with creative preparations. Something to suit all tastes. Very lively bar scene. Definitely one of the best restaurants in town. Will return on my next visit

We had a wonderful meal. My husband had the elk & thought it was one of the best meals he ever had! I had the filet & it was great also. Our waitress was very informative, pleasant & knowledgable about the menu. Service was outstanding. The bar was packed with people and drinks were very creative. Definitely a place to return to.

Couldn't have been better.
Our experience at Local was outstanding. Our server was terrific and supported our desire to order a lot and share it all family style (there were 6 of us). The food was impeccable, from the charcuterie to the fries, the elk medallions to the lamb. I loved the atmosphere; it's the kind of place you can dress up and enjoy a romantic date or show up in your soft-pants for apres ski without feeling underdressed. It was the perfect setting for our silly, middle-aged, motley crew of friends-food-and-drink-lovers. Loved, loved, loved it.

You have to try this one.
Our best dining experience in Jackson, Wyoming. Moderate prices and exceptional food and waitstaff. Highly recommend.
4/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had flet mignons which were perfectly cooked, some fries and the potato gratin and sauted spinach. All were excellent. Good quality and well prepared. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The only issue for me is that it is loud in there and depending on where you sit (we were next to a group with a loud mouth) the noise level can get to be a bit much. Over all - great food in Jackson.
4/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were very happy with quality of food and excellent service. Vibrant restaurant, a bit loud but would still happily return.
5/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
I can't believe it took me so long to try this place. The service and atmosphere are great and the food is amazing. I will definitely come back again!

Local Gem--Must Try!
The Local far exceeded my expectations in every aspect. The food was locally grown (as was the cutlery, artwork, etc) and dishes were unique and delicious. This should be your first stop in dining while in Jackson or any surrounding area. It truly is the embodiment of everything great in Teton Valley's local area.
5/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is terrific but the noise level is a turn off. The waitress did ask them to turn down the volumn of the music which really helped. The speaker was above our table and between the crowd of people and the music, we could not hear each other speak. I cannot understand why all of these modern designed restaurants feel the need to blast music. Either be a nightclub or a dining establishment. Trying to be both ruins the wonderful food experience.

Filet has great flavor
In jackson on vacation for two nights. We enjoyed it so much the first night, we went back the 2nd. Good basic steaks with great flavor and good price. I had the pork chop the 2nd night. Good, but Filet much better.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
With a very prominent location overlooking the square, you can't miss this restaurant. The aesthetics are simple yet refined and offer a great backdrop to the dining experience. The charcuterie board was outstanding, varied, and the perfect appetizer. The coffee-rubbed elk was delicious, but the sweet potatoes with huckleberries were the clear highlight of the dish. The "pie" (and I use this term loosely as they were wonderful little individual bites) was absolutely amazing with a great vibrant citrus kick in each morsel accompanied by the crème anglaise. Will definitely return and recommend to anyone traveling through Jackson. Hopefully Wyoming Whiskey will also be on hand.

3 sides and a salad
I ordered 3 sides for $12 - mushrooms, truffled mashed potatoes and asparagus in a hollandaise sauce. I also ordered the most amazing caesar salad. All delicious! The person I was eating with got the oysters which were amazing and a vegetarian dish wrapped in a flaky crust. Service was good - his wine recommendation was excellent and we had a very nice dinner!
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food - Great Experience
Food was very well prepared and presented. My dish was a pasta with buffalo sausage. The menu warned it was spicy and it was but in a very good and balanced way. It is owned by two well trained chiefs.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food good but noisy
Asked for a quiet table. That meant by the kitchen. Since
It is so noisy i am assuming they did not understand
The request. Food good not great. It is part of a three
Group chain. I will stay away from their sister locations.

Great spot for drinks and food
We happened by Local as we were being touristy in Jackson Hole - early Happy Hour so we went in. Very good pricing on drinks and excellent bar snacks. We returned for dinner and we very pleased with the wide selection on the menu - both in types of food and pricing. The bar personnel in particular were friendly and helpful for other local fun activities.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Over all it was a really fun, energetic, eclectic atmosphere with great food and drink options. I would say my only concern was the wait staff were not fully knowledgeable about the food choice and mixed beverages were not so smooth. I would recommend this place to friends!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our apps and staters were
Our apps and staters were great. Wine and champagne were great. Entrees were ok. My halibut was dry. I made a reservation and was placed in the bar without being told. It seemed odd to me that the reservations weren't for the main dining room. Nonetheless we had a good evening even if everything wasn't great.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Local food!
We went to Local for our anniversary. The food was fantastic - simply prepared with fresh, local ingredients (hence the name). Generous portions. Perfect steak.

Was a little loud. At times it was hard to hear the people at my own table

Awesome experience !!!!!
Mussels are really good and the chocolate fondue is the best choice of dessert !
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent - Did not disappoint
I had read other reviews regarding this restaurant and based on that and it's location chose it for a fun night w/a good friend. And it was great...Service was very quick -- if you want to slow down between apps or starters -- let your server know. Usually that's not a complaint - that they are fast and on the ball:0)..but you may want to space out a bit more.
But the food was AMAZING and the staff very friendly --- great menu - varied -something for everyone..foodies included to someone who is maybe not as adventurous. Steaks were great, recommend the elk and of the sides -- we had the brussel sprouts and the mushrooms --both highly recommend.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lamb was great
Three of us went out for a nice birthday dinner. I ordered the braised lamb, and it was cooked perfectly along with polenta.
The others ordered game plates which also turned out exquisitely. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Downtown Jackson gem
Great food, great atmosphere and great service. One of the best in Jackson Hole
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, service, ambiance always great. I personally prefer the main dining room to the left. Could expand the dessert menu
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Huge, flavorful portions, BUT!
Great attention to making sure the steaks are tender and cooked perfectly as well as the presentations. Very large portions, too. The only complaint is that it can be very noisy -- they should turn the background music down so you don't have to shout in order to be heard. Also, I had asked for a able with regular chairs, not a bench or banquette, and so that neither one of us had their back to the rest of the room but that was not honored.

First Time "Locals"
This was our first trip to JH. We went to Local on our last night in town and what a wonderful treat! The atmosphere was quaint and comfortable, the service was the best we had out of all the restaurants we visited within the week. Our server was more than gracious and very knowledgeable about the menu. We highly recommend Local and can't wait to come back!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved our meals (chef burger
Loved our meals (chef burger and new york strip) but seating was very close and the family that was seated next to us allowed their children to be very loud. We had to raise our voices just to talk to each other. Aside from this, we had a wonderful mean.

Local is local
Local is an upscale modern take on the steak restaurants found in Jackson , WY. The atmosphere is modern, relaxed, casual. The food was great. Everything was fresh from the salads to the Bison. And yes, they do have a decent amount of choices for those like me who do not eat meat!
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
A big surprise
Always worried about eating in tourist towns but this was a wonderful meal the fillet mingon was very good.
9/4/2013 5:00:00 PM
My wife and I dined on the Elk Tenderloin Medallions and the Dry Aged Buffalo Ribeye. Exactly the local options you desire, but did they meet our taste expectations? Absolutely. The elk was perfectly prepared with eye popping flavor. But, the buffalo was the star of the night. It melted in your mouth. If I could return now for that dish, I would. Salads and sides shouldn't be overlooked either - they were exceptional complements with great and fresh ingredients. Not to mention great service that never once questioned the presence of a six month old at the table, providing the perfect table that would have sheilded others from the noise, had he not slept through the entire meal. Thanks Local, we'll be back as soon as we can.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved everything about our experience here. Our salads were great, our grass fed steak was out of this world, and the service was very knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. It is pricey, but certainly in keeping with similar area restaurants.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food/ service, but noisy
Fun vide, good bar, food quality and service are great. We were seated next to the bar area with only a curtain dividing bar from dining area. Noise from bar made it difficult to have table conversation.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were on a trip and were recommended the Local by the hotel staff. We found it to be good. Food was better than average. Wine list was small, but we each had a nice glass of our choice. Service was good. The only complaint was the noise level. It was above energetic.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were delighted to find this restaurant among the many in Jackson Hole. The food was awesome. Highly recommend it!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Noisy but worth it!! Service was excellent. Waiter made good reccomendations and he knew about everything on the menu.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service. Definite place to eat in Jackson, WY.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of JH's best
Usually loud and full of locals and tourists the atmosphere is energetic but the food and service is excellent Steakhouse fare with lots of wild game featured. Save room for the banana split. It is great! I'm a local and Local is my favorite resturant.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, good concept
This restaurant was a welcome find in a resort town. We liked the concept of sourcing local food products. The waitress made good recommendations about which entrees to choose. The elk medallions were prepared perfectly and paired with sweet potatoes and huckleberry compote which were a surprising combination but worked perfectly. The vegetarian en croute entree was tasty with a little heat and worked perfectly with the light by-the-glass prosecco. Overall, the meal was excellent and exceeded our expectations.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
All 5 of us enjoyed the dinner - appetizer, including elk sausage was excellent, house salad and lobster salad very good, steaks (beef and buffalo) excellent, great vegetable sides. Two had dishes with sauces (braised lamb and pasta), were less pleased with their selection.
Enjoyed the evening. Would definitely return.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a Friday night and
It was a Friday night and the place was packed but they still seated us at a good table at the exact time of our reservation - not having to wait in the bar for 15-20 min or more. That's rare given how busy the restaurant was. The bar was noisy but the noise in the dining area where we were was very acceptable. The menu had a lot of interesting entries and the lamb shank and buffalo flank steak were very tasty. My wife and I shared a very nice claret and enjoyed ourselves a lot.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed Local for the first time. The meal was excellent. The server was very attentive. We will be back, all if the food coming out of the kitchen looked great.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Meat lovers paradise
Absolutely love everything about Local. The food is amazing, and if you're a steak lover it doesn't get any better. The wine list is well comprised of some of the best wines available anywhere. The staff are attentive, yet not smothering. Local is on the upper end price wise for restaurants, but worth every cent. A must for any steak foodie !
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
excellent new restaurant in Jackson
Jackson, for a small town, has more than it's share of top flight restaurants, and Local is one of the newest additions to that group; great location right on the Town Square (although that makes parking a bit of an adventure in the height of tourist season), excellent dark atmosphere, solid, professional service, and some very good food. Also excellent bar with some very creative cocktails. Highly recommended!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Much improved over last year
We dined at Local twice during the summer/fall of 2012 and were underwhelmed both times. It was a new restaurant but just wasn't up to the caliber hyped for this restaurant group in Jackson Hole. We decided to give it another try this fall on a friend's recommendation and we were pleasantly surprised at the improvements in the food quality. Two of the three of us had an excellent steak; the one who got elk medallions said they were mediocre - but overall significant improvements.
Note: the restaurant is very LOUD. So if you want an evening of conversation request a table in a corner to help facilitate this.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
All week, I was craving a good ribeye and in my minds eye there are only two places in town to get a well prepared ribeye - Local and White Buffalo. My sides were delicious - sautéed spinach, potatoes au gratin, and the Brussels sprouts are to die for! i started with a bowl of French onion soup (could use a splash of white wine) and it was nice and hot on a very cold evening. our server was great, food was well presented, and the host staff is excellent!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
I dined with my son and was able to enjoy the 2 for 1 entree special at Local! I rarely eat beef, but I ordered the filet. Oh My! It was the most unbelievable piece of meat I have ever eaten! The entire meal was most memorable! Loved the salad and the garlic mashed potatoes for a side. It was relatively expensive, but SO WORTH it! Excellent service and I loved the decor! It was a special dinner!
