Local Kitchen & Beer Bar
Great atmosphere. Food is unique and well priced. Our server Tom was knowledgeable and friendly. Owner Pete was welcoming and friendly. A great experience that we will return for.
Good food, reasonable prices, very good service.
Everything was great! The food is always fantastic, just wish there was more of a selection.
I went to Local before a Sabres game and it was great as usual. Food was good, service was good. Not too noisy. The server got our food right away because we were going to the game. I really like Local and would definitely recommend it.
Server was excellent!!! Food delish. Fries so so. Love the menu. Definately would go hack
Family date night before Shea’s. We had never been here before. I had never heard of this restaurant before and found by a Google search for restaurants near Shea’s. We will definitely come back! Especially since it's a very rare occasion when everyone at the table loves their food. 😁
We were seated as soon as we got there for our reservation. Our server was knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. The food was really good. We will visit again
Great food, great service, great fun. By far, my favorite place to eat in Buffalo!
This has become my favorite restaurant in downtown Buffalo. I love everything here. The cocktails, appetizers, wings, entrees. I have not been disappointed with anything I've tried.
Great night out with friends! Excellent food and lots of beers to choose from.
This was the 6th or so time we've been to Local Kitchen. Food was very good as always. The issues this time was the background music (way too loud) and the sequencing of the food. Typically we wait to order dinner until after the apps have come, but we've never had a problem before so we didn't. We weren't half way through the apps and soup when dinner came. In and out in 50 minutes. I realize it's not a romantic dinner restaurant, but it was bordering on fast food service. The place was 1/2 empty so no reason to rush us. We've gone with other couples before, but would be hesitant to do so again given the noise level and the lack of time to sit an chat.
We made reservations and our table was prepped and ready for us/right on time. Excellent servers, service and food every time we have dined at Local.
A nice place for a casual bite before a show over at Shea’s. A great selection of beer on tap and a chef with a unique take on locally source cuisine.
We came for dinner before heading across the street to go to a concert. They have an impressive beer list. I had the Nickel City mac-n-cheese, which was delicious. My fiancé had the Delaware chicken sandwich, which was also very good. This was our second time dining here and we had excellent service again. We will definitely be back.
We love Local Kitchen. We try and go once a month. My husband enjoys their craft beer selection. The food is always great and staff is very friendly.
We had some sandwiches very good
Our server was great I cant-remember his name -
Two min walk from Westin downtown Buffalo.
Very good food. Many gluten-free options.
Food was good. Waited a bit long for food.
I have now eaten at Local Kitchen twice and both times had very good food and service. The only knock was that the second time, even though we had a reservation, we didn't get seated until over 30 minutes after the time of our reservation. It was disappointing since we had a post-meal commitment and didn't get to enjoy our meal in as leisurely fashion as we would have liked. I would still recommend Local Kitchen.
Took a group. Service was excellent and everyone had a good meal. Good variety on the menu and great beer selection.
This was our second trip here and it's a good option for casual dining. It's more than bar food but not fine dining. Most menu choices are priced $12-22 with a mix of apps, sandwiches and entrees. Menu advertises locally sourced ingredients. Wine list is limited.
Very friendly staff, food came out quick and hot. Good food, local feel. Would definitely go back.
I really did enjoy the Toasted sesame ahi tuna salad! And each of the winter seasonal beers we had we're fun and tasty. We would definitely recommend
Service was horribly slow but the food was good.
I went with my sister for brunch before a show. I had checked the menu online before making a reservation. Unfortunately over half of the items online were not on the menu. Very disappointing, but what we had was good.
Got the recommendation from one of the staff at hotel we're staying at. Have to say it was top notch right from the start..5 min walk from hotel, & we were seated right away! In and out within 45 minutes to make the Sabres hockey game..We split the beef on wick & the short ribs poutine. Both were EXCEPTIONAL!! If i could have gotten away with licking the dish clean i would have!! We'll definitly return for another meal..could have ordered 3 more entrees that we wanted to try!!!
Great local spot! My small party needed a pre-Shea's dinner option and we decided to try out Local Kitchen. The beer list/drink options overall were great and the food options did not disappoint either. Especially impressed with the appetizers.
Dinner with teen age kids; Everyone was thrilled with their dinner! We do miss the giant Pizza Log, though. Wish you would bring that back!!
We've repeatedly dined at Local Kitchen as our pre-theatre go-to place. We always have outstanding food, friendly, well-paced service. Simply a downtown gem.
I love Local Kitchen! Every time we go there the food is awesome and very tasty. The service is right on and everyone is super friendly. You can’t beat the hometown atmosphere with lots Buffalo memorabilia. Super close and within walking distance to Sheas.
Love that they do not serve any food that was frozen and serve locally grown food!!
Good locally sourced food. A bit noisy. Delicious desserts. I had the Cheektowaga Plate, braised short ribs over potato pirogi. 5 stars! Good craft beer menu.
we went for dinner prior to seeing Hamilton on the night before thanksgiving....we were thinking service would be slow on that night. we were wrong! Dinner was served quickly, and everything was delicious! we will definetly be returning for dinner again
Food and service were great. No low table seating though which was a challenge for the grandparents in the group.
Great selection of food served quickly. Large portions. Friendly and quick bar service. We will be back.
Great food as always. Selection is wide but not overwhelming. Some places have such a small menu it's tough to go with a group as some people find it difficult to find something to eat. Place is lively, but not too loud for conversations.
Great food, good service!
Good food and service
Loved everything about it.
Dined with 4 people and the food was excellent however the menu online didn't reflect what was available the server said it hadn't been updated and he had a couple of people asking for the same thing
