Local Foods Kitchen
It was our anniversary. The entire mood of the restaurant changes at night. It was quiet. Candles and table cloth. Our server, Alex, cared for everything. We brought beer and they provided chilled glasses. Now to the food, cold crisp vegetables with dip. We were served tastey olive bread that was warm. Fried catfish, coleslaw, Mac n cheese was served family style. The sauce for the fish was so light and lemony. This was a mans’ meal and Larry loved it... then it was toped off with a apple crisp with whip cream on top.
We love Local Kitchen. Everything has a unique taste and is always fresh. The desserts are amazing...We took home the left overs which was enough for another meal. I felt totally pampered. It was a wonderful night.
It is the best meal I've had at a restaurant in Fort Worth, maybe any restaurant. And y'all know we eat out alot. We took half our food home. Family Style Thursday - Saturday with reservations on Open Table. They post the family style dinner menu on their FB page each week. They have breakfast, lunch, dinner and prepared take out meals. Ridiculous good! Check it out! Thanks Joann Mays Byerley for turning us on to this hidden gem!
My experience last Friday was my first to family dinner. I was celebrating time with my father and my young son. Your staff treated us so graciously, offering a sippy cup and small toys to my well-behaved baby. It is not often such attention to detail is paid to the food, the customers and their expectations. The Hunters Feast blew me away with flavor, including unexpected amuse bouches, inventive breads, and excitement beyond the menu description. The meal fed me for days, and beyond the quantity, its savor was easily worth the value. Thanks and compliments to the chef and staff. - Helen
Great food and great service! We love Local Foods Kitchen!
We love Local Foods Kitchen!! Would love to keep it a secret, but have to share this treasure. We enjoy the Family Dinner nights (Th-Sat) Each night is a different delicious meal...bring your appetite because portions are generous! (You’ll probably leave with a doggy bag.) Service is friendly and attentive...and very welcoming.
Delicious and casual with great friendly servers. Never disappoints!
Excellent flavors in all of their dishes. Great family style meals Thursday through Saturday evening.
Best meal in years
The food was exquisite. In fact, it was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Alex was also an excellent server.
Always one of our favorite lunch spots but the evening family style dinners have raised the bar to a new level. Great food, great staff
We loved our Thursday nite meal so well we are coming Sat. too!!
Best fried catfish I’ve eaten. For family dinners this byb. Didn’t know that but now I do.
The restaurant was a great atmosphere and service was fine but our meal was extremely cool. Not served hot at all. Hopefully I can talk my family in to going back.
Best food I’ve eaten in a long while
I came to Local Foods Kitchen for a dinner with my parents and my girlfriend and her parents this past Friday. The pacing of the courses from start to end was right on time. The food was delicious! Make sure you leave room for dessert!
First time to visit Local Foods and all I can say is WOW! The menu is different every evening and on this evening our meal was comprised of fried quail, duck, and sausage along with spaghetti squash and rice. The food is presented family style and I can tell you there is plenty of food! The food is fresh and cooked to perfection. I was so glad we decided to come here. We are so excited for our next visit to see what they are cooking up next!
The food was incredible. The music was too loud but they turned it down for us. It was really a wonderful quiet meal with friends which is what we wanted.
I have been here with friends after work on several occasions. This was our second time to eat dinner from the family-style dinner service. It was delicious and staff were very attentive. I can't wait to go back and try breakfast soon.
Service and food are great!
A delicious dinner of generous proportions. Excellent, attentive service. Obviously prepared with
care, knowledge, and excellent ingredients. I'll be back!
We have wanted to sample Local Foods Kitchen for some time - and were delighted with our first experience on Saturday evening. This restaurant is a Bistro / Trattoria-type experience where you eat what they have prepared for the evening & it is healthful, fresh family-style food. Since you can check out their daily menu items ahead of time, you'll know what to expect & will be richly rewarded with delicious home-style food!
I am so sorry we put off coming here for far too long!! We will definitely be back!
Fabulous place! Food is delicious! If you go at noon, be prepared for a LOT of energetic noise, but you can eat outside under ceiling fans. Love this place!
The food here is fabulous. We love Katie’s take on everything. The service is spot on. The atmosphere is casual and relaxing. It’s what’s for dinner!
The service was friendly and prompt. The steak was very flavorful and enhanced by the mushrooms.
Salad was beautiful on the eyes and palate with a lovely, light lemony dressing. French fries were
perfect and the dessert divine.
This was one of the best meals out we have had in a long time. A friend recommended this place and we had wanted to go for a long time and finally went for my birthday. The service was excellent, the food was excellent, and it was also inexpensive. We will definitely go back! We were very pleased, maybe the best meal out we have eaten this year!
Katie Schma's sit-down dinners on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings are amazing. Such wonderful food, excellent service that makes you feel so special as well as the ambiance makes one feel they are in a wonderful hideaway restaurant in Napa Valley perhaps!! What a treat! Chef Charley Atkinson does a marvelous job with the menus per evening; his expertise with foods takes us to another level in dining in Fort Worth. Note: Be sure to make reservations!!
The food and serving sizes are wonderful. We love the family style and her food is very creative and special.
We've always enjoyed the food at this neighborhood favorite but the family-style dinners on Thursday, Friday and Saturday are simply amazing. We could easily go every week. And probably will!
Lovely food, excellent food, caring service. Obvious effort and concern for a special dining experience.
We loved it all and will return soon.
The entire dinner tonight was very carefully paired and so perfect for a Texas summer evening. The fried chicken was wonderful! They definitely must have found the biggest chickens in Texas. The staff is always so pleasant, attentive and professional. The shoestring fries are the best and keep us coming back. They have a great concept, amazing food and exceptional service.
You simply must try it as you will love it!
We've become regulars to the Family Dinner nights (Thurs-Sat) The food is always delicious with leftovers to take home! The service can be a bit spotty, but the Family Dinners have been offered for a bit over a month, so the staff are still tweaking things and the service is getting better.
The menu is fixed so no thinking involved. You better like what she is serving and you can find it on their website. Casual environment. Creative and good food. The benches are a little uncomfortable and could be used on the other side of the table so you can lean against the wall if your back is tired.
This restaurant has recently expanded to dinner service - each night is a new a menu of a truly creative and well executed dining event. The in house bakery is an added bonus - service and food were exceptional. And the value is an unexpected surprise. Try it - you won't be disappointed! We had the lamb with polenta and panzanella salad. Fabulous!
Knocked it out of the park with their weekend family style dinner. Fresh, creative cuisine with enough left over for another meal at home!
The service was amazing. Very friendly and professional.
The shoestring fries were the best we have ever had.
It was nice and quiet and we could easily talk and totally enjoy our evening.
Can’t wait to go back.
Amazing prix fixe dinner with fabulous service! Will go again!
What a great first dinner seating!! Really from first to last course just spot on quality and really value. Started with huge wedge salad with chopped tomatoes, cucumbers and croutons..homemade ranch perfect...dinner course always flank steak/flat iron steak with house made steak sauce..onion rings and creamed spinach all on point finished with basically chocolate pot de creme. What a meal $34/pp!! BYO with a $5/pp allowed for a bottle of wine you couldn’t possible acquire in DFW....can’t wait for next weekends meal!
Food was Simple, Recognizable, Delicious. Family style service was a nice surprise. Portions were more than plenty. Great relaxing atmosphere and personal service from Katie. Experience was fantastic! Just GO!
While it was the first night of the new dinner service, everything went smoothly. Staff was welcoming and efficient. Owner Katie made the rounds, and made everyone feel special.
