Mrs. R and I had dinner there last Saturday night - there was just one other couple there @7:00 pm - perhaps due to heavy rain and GA Football game. There's not much free parking available in front or behind on a Saturday in Canton St Restaurant district - paid our $5 parking fee in the big lot The restaurant is small and narrow - we were seated adjacent to the kitchen and food pick-up which took away from the ambiance. (It wasn't a feature, it was a nusiance.) Wine and beer list is short, but solid offerings available - the menu also doesn't have many selections but that's probably good for a business this size). I started with mussels - they were tasty in white wine/cream broth - kind of a small portion. I also had the shrimp tacos - they were very good, can with a side of spicy beans. My wife had the "Local" salad - she added grilled chicken and was very happy with it - all ingredients were very fresh, chicken cooked right for her.
Overall - good food, good service, ambiance ok. Just nothing really to differentiate it from the other dozen restaurants within 1000 yards except lots of available tables/reservation slots.

Quiet place early in the evening. Tasty food. Service was good. Love the coupons they send in the mail. Makes it a good value.

Apps were great, but unfortunately they were the high point of the meal. My wife and I both had the specials, ribeye steak for her and red snapper for me. My fish was smothered in sauce, so much that I couldn't even taste the fish. My wife's steak was more gristle than steak. I've seen better cuts of meat at Longhorn for 1/3 the price. Very disappointing evening, especially since there are so many better options in the Roswell area.

Food was delicious although I was disappointed that they didn’t have the crab cake salad. (Or ice tea) I got the chicken sandwich which was yummy. I liked that they had flatten the chicken breast. It made it easier to eat. My dad has the RKO burger. It was huge with two patties. We both took half home with us. It was very quiet there on a Sunday early afternoon (12:30). The server was friendly and attentive. Overall, a lovely lunch.

We enjoyed a great meal after they had just opened at 5pm when we could get a seat - obviously very popular. The menu had lots we liked and so we want to return to sample more of it. The service was very fast, and our needs met with the few extra requests we placed. It's a long and narrow seating area, not decorated, kind of like Waffle House in dimension without the sun pouring through glass windows and without bright stainless counters. So in the absence of looking around and savoring the ambiance, we enjoyed just the company of each other on a date, husband and wife, seated across the table from one another - delightful! Next time we visit we might sit at the small bar and face the TV, liquor bottle shelf, and watch the bartender do his/her thing. We will return!

Friends and I went to Local on North for dinner on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was not crowded and frankly people are missing out on very good food and service. One person in our group said he’s been there on weekends and it’s busy then. We started with a special fish strips with a nice sauce. Then we all picked the swordfish special. It was great. They were accommodating to two guests who wanted to swap vegetables on the special too. I definitely would return to Local on North. Another great option for dining in the Canton Street area in Roswell.

Always fun to dine and enjoy Local on North. The music in the back alley - make sure to grab a table by 7:30 - is always great fun! Eat, then stay and enjoy another cocktail or three and people watch, dance, enjoy.

The potato soup and duck spring rolls were very very good! Best soup I’ve had in awhile. We sat inside but they had live music on the patio which would be a nice chill spot to enjoy dinner. I’ll be back to try a wood fire pizza for sure!

Food is always consistently very good to excellent, and usually the bar & wait service is very good. But this visit we were slightly disappointed by the inattentive waiter. He seemed to be in a hurry to be someplace else, so we did not hang around for dessert or after-dinner drinks.

The pear salad and salad dressings I tried were delicious. So was the steak and frites and the shrimp tacos. This place is cozy and looks high end and it's a good place to have lunch with a friend and catch up or have a nice date with your partner. Nice portions, good value for the money, I had enough leftovers for dinner.

Cute little place -- however confusing just walking in with no hostess stand in sight -- should have requested to sit outside because the ambience out there was better. Our table was right next to the bar and the bartender was our bartender and server. However it was like pulling teeth to get a drink! Food was good -- above average -- try the goat cheese appetizer and the spicy shrimp appetizer! They served us martinis in "high ball" glasses saying -- we ran out of martini glasses...weird. Then we re-ordered martinis and got them in wine glasses. Weird again. The live music outside in the back alley was energetic...but I can't imagine those people being served when we were right next to the bar and couldn't get a drink! Bartender was nice though but overwhelmed. I hope they get their crap together. Hostess was delightful but I felt like she had no place to "stand" or help people. May try again...not sure.

Food is fantastic: every time, and we've been 8 times now. Service is wonderful and they are friendly.
Only problem is the obnoxiously loud music. We always ask if they will please turn it down: They do but it is still so loud that we have to raise our voices to hear each other across the table. The food is so delicious we endure the music. And we will go back again and again. That's how great the food is.

This was a great experience! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and cocktail choices. The service is fabulous from the hostess to the kitchen to the bar.
My wife had the Shrimp Diablo pasta, very flavorful, I got the mussels with fries as an appetizer and the Grouper Special for dinner, well Done!!
We ended up enjoying some music at the outside patio, will definitely do it again.

Great spot in a typical Roswell Restaurant scene; Food and service were top notch. They have live music on the outside patio Friday’s & Saturdays, the place gets packed quick, glad we made a reservation in advance.
We will definitely be back for more options on the menu.
