We were greeted quickly and politely and seated immediately. Our server was very accommodating and efficient. The food was very good and portions were perfect. I’m not crazy about the set up in the dining room but it’s nothing that would keep me away. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good meal at a reasonable price with above average service.

Our second visit to Local in Williamsville. The service was outstanding--we were seated quickly, and both the hostess and the waitress were very responsive. It is located inside a golf dome, with the restaurant adjacent to the bar in an open room without much character or ambiance. The food was OK; my wife had the risotto, which was pretty bland. I had the almond salmon, which was overcooked.

THE GIRL THAT WAITED ON US WAS GREAT AT FIRST, THEN THE LONGER WE STAYED THE LESS FRIENDLY AND HER MOOD CHANGED, AND MADE US TO FEEL RUSHED AND SHE BECAUSE UNATTENTIVE. I WAS EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED THAT WHEN I ORDERED A FISH FRY AND SAID NO FRIES, ONLY MACARONI SALAD AND COLESLAW, THE DISHES WERE BARELY FILLED. THEN WHEN I SAW A TABLE NEXT TO US RECEIVING THEIR FISH FRY AND SAW THAT THEIR SIDE DISHES OVERFLOWING, IT WAS EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING. ONE OF THE LADIES WITH US ORDERED NO COLESLAW, AND GOT IT WHEN SHE DIDNT WANT IT. THE OTHER LADY WITH US ORDERED A CUP OF SOUP AND GOT A BOWL AND WHEN ASKED IF SHE WANTED FRIES, THE WAITRESS DIDNT TELL HER IT WAS AN UPCHARGE. WE FOUND OUT WHEN WE GOT THE BILL.

Had dinner here after reading positive reviews on line. The bartender Paul was very personable and we enjoyed chatting with him while having a drink. Also talked with Kim the owner who was also very friendly and even made some menu suggestions for us. I had the pistachio salmon which was delicious and my husband enjoy the short ribs. Great food in a casual atmosphere, would definitely eat here again.

Great for Happy Hour drink specials with friendly bartenders or have a few drinks or beer after golf. We were so disappointed in the food having eaten at Local Grille in downtown Buffalo. Website menu is drastically different from the Open Table version. We were looking forward to their "Famous" hot Italian peppers, the BBQ pork potato skins & veggie burger. Only thing left on the transitional menu was a tasteless, stick to the roof of your mouth veggie bean burger. My husband's chicken wings were cold & the roast beef on weck (which Joelle promised they would not dunk in au jus) was overdone. Salads looked OK and fish fry (a bit overpriced at $18) seemed enjoyed by friend. Typical bar food at best but so many better choices in the immediate area. I am so sorry to have to write this review because the staff was terrific!

Great casual dining option. Friendly staff and delicious food. Friday we enjoyed a fantastic huge fish fry and the best pumpkin cheesecake cake for dessert. We’ve been many times and appreciate the variety of food. Salmon with arugula and goat cheese special was one of my favorites.

Great pub food with an imaginative menu. The braised short ribs over sour cream and chive pierogi (Cheektowaga Polka) was fantastic. The mac and cheese of the week (BBQ pulled pork) was also great. The food could have been hotter (temp wise). The wait staff is attentive and charming. We’ll be back again when we go to the driving range!

Our first visit to Local Grill was a date night during restaurant week. While the specials looked great, we opted to order from the regular menu. Our server, Stephanie was friendly & helpful. Our service was top notch.
We shared the beef on weck egg rolls, which were delicious. I had the spinach salad with salmon and he had the five alarm burger. Everything was perfectly cooked & delicious. No dessert for us this time but the coffee was hot, bold & delicious.
We will certainly be going back.

We tried your restaurant during restaurant week. Seating was prompt and waitress was knowledgable and attentive. Children's meals were served first which was very welcome. Red pepper bisque and tuna ceviche appetizers were excellent and dinners were also delicious. Would return to try Friday fish fry.

I went to Local Grille on a Saturday night at 6pm. We were the only table in the dining room. It was incredibly quiet and the waitstaff, obviously bored, stood close, which was awkward. The french onion soup was horrible and had a terrible burnt taste. I ordered the steak frites as my entree. It had a awfully unappetizing charred topping atop the steak. The charred flavor was extremely bitter and it left a terrible taste on the palette. All in all, not a great experience.

What a great find. Don't be put off that this place is at the Golf Dome, the food and service is some of the best in the area. We did not know what to expect and the Local Grille far exceeded our expectation in all areas. We are certainly going to be visiting again often.

They are obviously new and doing pretty well for being so new. Prices were reasonable but food portions were pretty small. Could use to upgrade the decor in the dining room. Drink prices were also a little high. This could be a great place if they continue to work out the kinks.

Good, but not what we expected. Apparently ownership or management had changed recently. I recall seeing more of a 'farm-to-table' menu; we arrived to find what's basically a sports pub. The servers were very nice, though. Place is loud inside, even when not full, due to the acoustics. Good for a beer and pub grub in a really casual setting next to the indoor driving range.

This place is AMAZING. I have been her 3 times. First for their soft opening 2nd for the Mother’s Day brunch and 3rd tonight and each and ever time I had a different menu item and loved each and everyone of them. The service is outstanding

I can not wait for this patio to open. I believe it’s almost there and just i time for the warm weather.

Just a side note they have an amazing g golf
Dome within the complex and although I am not a golfer it looks
Like and amazing thing for the golfer. I saw people eating drinking and golfing.
