Local on North - Duluth
We mostly enjoyed our dinner a Local North, but things went south toward the end of our meal as it seemed our server and the staff was more interested in closing up then in taking care of their late night guests. No offer of dessert or after dinner coffee or drinks was made...and it just felt like we were being rushed after our entrees arrived. The food was good. I had the Amberjack special which was delicious. The onion soup was flavorful, but the portion (a bowl) was rather small. We would come back but try booking a reservation earlier than 9PM.
We’ve had the server Jessie several times. Food and atmosphere excellent as always. We eat at the bar mostly as we know Jim provides excellent experience considering how busy he is.
For the money it is well worth it.
Julie did a very good job in serving our table.
Burger was very good as well.
Sitting outside help make it very enjoyable
Easter brunch was awesome. I’m a pastor so late reservation. The food was fresh and as good as the dinner menu.
Service was outstanding.
Food was great! Went on Easter Sunday because it was the only place that had reservations the night before. We were seated on time, food came out quick and service was great. The chicken & waffles were to die for!
Last minute reservation for my friend's last night in town. We were seated right away and the host moved the heater closer to the table as it was getting colder outside, thank you again!
The waitress was very friendly, she went out of her way to ask the bartender if he/she could make a mocktail for me, although all the cocktails looked great. My friend had the Hello Gorgeous, she loved it. My mocktail was delicious.
I had the Red Snapper and my friend the Steak Frites. Both highly recommend! Great portion sizes, so delicious. Although the wait time was a bit long, they were definitely worth the wait.
Great place for semi-formal and casual occasions! Looking forward to my next visit!
Amazing service and food! The goat cheese appetizer is fantastic. We always enjoy dining here- it’s consistently outstanding.
The overall experience was just OK. Service was OK but a little slow, food was just OK, ordered the snapper, nothing to rave about, we ordered drinks from the specialty cocktail menu, tasted like they were watered down. Not a "bad" restaurant, just not as expected. Will not be going back, too many other options in that area of Duluth.
Good food and nice preseentation. Very noisy, hard to carry on any kind of converstion.
We have eaten at Local on North several times and it is consistently delicious. Service is always good as well.
Great as usual.
Great menu and location! Made for a wonderful quick brunch trip location!
Outstanding food. I have always had a special and look forward to trying items on the menu. Jessica was an outstanding server and made excellent recommendations the last two times we have been there.
Food was ok, and we thought was very expensive for the amount and quality.
Our waitress was great. And the live music very enjoyable.
The real problem was that the manager was having some kind of argument with an employee and there were a lot of yelling, broken dishes, and cursing. To be clear, the manager was the one screaming, cursing and yelling. Not the way we wanted to end our night.
We felt bad for the young man, and after all, he still came to the table to apologize about the incident. Maybe he should be the manager.
Fantastic food coming out of the kitchen
Very crowded for a pandemic. Tables on top of each other.
Always great. The cocktails are inventive and balanced.
Excellent food and always a good variety
Wonderfully enjoyable Saturday evening dining experience. Ambiance, service and food all hit the mark and the location is great for a bit of roaming before or after dinner. We had a starter of shrimp cocktail and both of us had the short rib entree. Delicious! We will be back.
Great restaurant! We need more restaurants like this in the Duluth area.
First time there. When we walked in we were made aware it was a Prix Fixe menu-my fault for not confirming that before we had made the trip. We chose it because of other options on the regular menu. That being said, we enjoyed the atmosphere, the appetizers, and dessert. The main course-we both selected the Delmonico Ribeye-were both very over cooked. We probably won’t return due to distance and the food, overall. But if you’re nearby, give it a try-probably better with the main menu options.
Wonderful food and service! We will definitely be back!
Sunday brunch menu. The volume is big but the taste is average. My least favorite Egg Benedict. Sorry different picture but I ate Egg Benedict.
Valentines Day Family Brunch
Father daughter date night
Great food and drinks but was expecting different ambience given the menu
Delicious as always. Nice night out. Shrimp Fra Diavolo was great and so was the lamp chop special - don't forget to order some mussels YUM!
This was our first time going to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food is outstanding and our waitress made excellent recommendations. We will be back and will add this gem to our rotation of favorite restaurants.
Excellent meal , service & value. Will be back. This is a gem!!
Food and service was excellent as usual. Courtney was our server and she was awesome!
Nice small space. friendly service and the food was excellent. Had the Omlett of the day special with chorizo , spinach, pepper, onion and cheese. It was delicious and huge, Tookk half of it home for breakfast the next day. I'll be back.
The service was great and fast, but it was cold even inside. i food was good, I will say the chicken was over "lemon". it was too much but everything else was delicious.
We eat here often. Love the vibe and the food. There is also a great outdoor space.
Great service, wonderful cuisine...would have liked it a bit quieter and darker. Very busy a Monday night(good for them!) but even with a reservation we were seated at the high-top community table. Quality of the food, service and wine selection more than made up for the noise and bright light level...We will be back!
Excellent service and they worked with us in the fact where one of the specials was not available but they willingly offered and we accepted a replacement to the entre selected.
Local on North is our go-to in downtown Duluth. The food is consistently good and the service is great. The ambience is just okay as it is a very small restaurant with limited seating which does not allow for intimate conversation. IF the weather is nice they have outdoor seating and sometimes they open large windows to allow fresh air to flow through the space. The menu is a bit limited but they always have interesting specials. I usually order the snapper and it was just okay this time. I do appreciate the wine list and the generous pours! I would definitely recommend this a neighborhood hot spot and will of course dine there again...maybe I need to try something new next time. My guests were pleased with their meals so that was great!
A wonderful atmosphere, outstanding service and excellent food!
Always really good food
Delicious food and great, friendly service you don’t get often in Duluth. Cocktails are also very delicious
