We were so excited to try this place. We kept seeing the menu on FB. When we got there- 3 of the popular bowls were sold out. When we got the waffles they didn’t come with the caramel syrup and they were rock hard. The waitress was very nice. The food looked so promising on FB but unfortunately was not in person

Three of us chose the Friday Fish Fry, and were very pleased; one selected the Lemon Pepper Broiled Fish and was not, as the broiled fish was very dry. The sides were all tasty, especially the uniquely shaped French Fries. The dinners were served very attractively on individual trays, with the very nice plastic silverware wrapped in a napkin. The tables were all nicely spaced to allow for ample social distancing, and masks were required until we were seated at our table. All the staff were also masked. The other menu items looked very interesting and we will likely return to sample them.

Went with friends on sunny evening. Patio was very nice.
Service was average. Food was below average.
Had salmon- was dry and flavorless. Came on bed of dry arugula with 3 slivers of red pepper , tiny crumb of goat cheese and 6 drops of balsamic...
got 3 appetizers- stuffed peppers and beef on week wontons were good. Order of chips and salsa came with about 10 chips and tiny cup of salsa for $7.00!
Probably will not go back.

Local Grille at the Dome has become our favorite “go to” place for date nights, family dinners, and getting together with friends.

From the parking lot, you would never expect what you will find once you walk through the doors. The best word I can come up with to describe the feel of the restaurant is “comfortable”. The staff is friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable. The menu has some “old favorite” staples and some really unique and fun offerings as well. (You MUST try the Beef on Weck Eggrolls!!! Wow!!!). Highlights that we have enjoyed are the Almond Chicken Strips, Beef and Broccoli, Fish Fry, and a Pork Tenderloin special that was AMAZING!!!

The owner, Kim, stopped by our table during our meal and was very interested in making sure our experience was excellent.

On the way out, we visited the “inside”bar (there is a second bar in the actual golf dome), which overlooks the driving range inside the dome. The bar seems to be well-stocked and the friendly bartenders should be able to come up with something to satisfy pretty much anybody, whether you’re looking for a beer on tap or a fancy Cosmopolitan.

We will definitely be returning to the Local Grill to enjoy the fantastic food and the comfortable atmosphere!

Very average food which costs a little more than other restaurants in the area who have better food. Undercooked burger, fish fry was on the smaller side and bland, wings were good. Besides wings, a fish fry is something you just have to nail as a restaurant in this area especially when yours is $4-$5 more than the average. Upcharge for the black & blue wings is not worth it. Probably won't eat there again unless it's just for wings & a drink after hitting a bucket in the dome.

Hi William, This is very disappointing to read. I am very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your visit with us. Were any of these issues brought to the servers attention so that they could be addressed the day of your visit? We do serve a 12 oz fish fry and they should all be the same size? I will follow up with a call to try and get a little more information about your visit with us on Friday October 11th.

Excited for the new brunch Menu & it definitely did not disappoint! Portion sizes were perfect, variety was ample and most importantly, the taste was amazing. Very refreshing to be able to have a great Sunday brunch without the typical ‘pancakes & eggs’ choice (highly recommend the Borsa and their homemade tater tots & biscuits and gravy) Just an overall great brunch menu - will definitely be a frequent diner!

Hi Vicki, I am so sorry to hear that you felt this way. That is definitely not our intentions. Its our policy when seating our guests to ask them when we seat them if the table we are seating them at is okay. I apologize if that did not happen. I will speak to the staff to make sure they are asking the guest as we seat them. We are happy you enjoyed the food and service and do hope you will give us another try.

We are regular customers, and love the food at the Local Grille - but Fathers Day dining missed the mark. Food was just this one time disappointing, except the service was excellent as usual. We attributed it to likely the regular chef being off for Fathers Day, so ......we will go back again soon.

Thank you Mike for your honest feedback. Unfortunately, even though we staffed for a busier Sunday we couldn't plan for that may unexpected guests (with out reservations) it did put us in a position that we were not able to service our guest like we would normally like to. We appreciate your business and glad you will give us another opportunity and try us again. We took notes and will be sure to plan better for next year.
