Nice brunch menu and many choices of vegetarian for my guests. Ryan was a great server!

Entrees and sides were very good. Flourless chocolate cake was a bit dry and disappointing. Service was quite good. Prices were about right for what you get.

Booked a table for 5 for dinner, the hostess seemed confused at the number of guests and sat us at a 4 person table without a fifth chair that made it awkward and we ended up having to move to a different table so the fifth seat wouldn't block the server station. A little more planning would have made a better impression on us.
Other than that the food was fantastic!

We had a party of 12 for dinner. The manager/owner was very rude to us when we moved the extra chair at our table. He also berated an employee for not going to the back to wash dishes instead of helping another member of the wait staff. Our group spent over $600 for dinner that evening but will not be spending another dime there because of the manager/owner’s attitude towards us as customers and how he treated his employee.

Too noisy for my friend and me, but problem was from one loud table. Once the loud mouth left, that party quieted down and we were able to enjoy (and hear) ourselves. Management really should keep an ear out for overly loud tables and ask those people to have a little consideration for other diners

Was looking for this type of restaurant in Durham to take out of town friends that was not too expensive, not too casual with a good variety on the menu...it fit the bill perfectly! Good food options, local and southern spin and the wait staff was superb! Small in size, but has outdoor seating for warm weather. Will definitely go back again!

We have been here several times but it will probably be a long time before we go back. The menu had changed so we were excited to try it. The chicken wings were good but they arrived without blue cheese. We asked the server for the blue cheese and he did not reply, and just got snarky and walked away. He did bring us some but was not very pleasant. My son ordered a burger($10) and loaded fries as a side($8). The burger arrived without the fries and he was half way through his burger before they arrived, I believe the server forgot to order them. The food is all al a carte and I mean $18 for burger and fries with cheese and bacon is a little too pricey. We have too many places in the area that are better and cheaper. I really wanted to try the Brussel sprouts to go with my scallops and black bean/corn succotash but I am not willing to spend $10 on a vegetable.

In town for a business trip and wanted to find a good dinner choice near Durham. I made reservations at Local 22 based off great reviews on Open Table and Yelp. The rustic decor was cool and when we were arrived (6:00 pm) most guests were seated at the bar or bar area but by the time we left, the dining room area was packed. My colleague and I both chose salads and then decided to split the well-reviewed Mac-n-Cheese and hush puppies. My colleague chose the beet salad because he loves beets but most restaurants do not showcase them as this salad did. He loved it! I chose the Quinoa Salad based on it had many ingredients I love. One ingredient was the watermelon beet which I had never had before but it gave the salad nice crunch without an overpowering flavor. The Mac-n-Cheese lived up to the hype. Creamy cheese and tender veggies were very good and sharing it was a great accompaniment to our salads and wine. The hush puppies sat in a cheese sauce and were very good as well. The added jalapeños created a nice heat but did not make them spicy. I will visit Local 22 when in town again.

Great tapas and imaginative specials. We had a group of 7 and everyone loved their dinners. The vegetable sides were outstanding!

there was something for everyone --- great menu. We had a wonderful server who paid attention to the likes/dislikes of each guest. Everyone was pleased with their choice. Hushpuppies are a winner!
