Local Roots (Virginia) - A Farm to Table Restaurant
Our roots are deeply embedded in the lush farmlands of Southwest Virginia. They are nourished by modern-day farmers who employ age-old techniques, hard-working heroes who nurture not only the people, but the land as well. We've gotten to know these local farmers and are better for it. They help us keep time with the rhythms of the seasons. Sun-ripened tomatoes in the summer, hearty root vegetables in the winter - we serve what is fresh and natural at the peak of its flavor.
Our roots are fed by a philosophy we call S.O.L.E.: Sustainable, Organic, Local, Ethical. It's a principle that guides us as we decide from whom to source our meats and vegetables. It also informs our beverage program.
Have always enjoyed, particularly good this evening.
Great food, great service. Will be back to try the fish and chips!
Wonderful brunch menu and service. Really glad we found it.
Brunch was a good price and the mimosa was made with fresh squeezed orange juice. The eggs Benedict was ok. I felt there was too much sauce and it had no flavor. The bacon was a little overdone for my husband.
Every time we are in the Roanoke, VA area from Southern California, we reserve a table for dinner at Local Roots because of its commitment to farm fresh and seasonal ingredients prepared with imagination and skill. The wine list is intelligent and properly expansive. Always a treat to come here and dine.
Loved the oysters on the half shell, the mussels with bacon and rye whiskey, and the scallops. Also enjoyed their bread pudding.
Consistently great food and if you like eclectic food this is the place for you. Flavors you never imagined combined into a wonderful dish. Give this place a try.
Excellent food and service as always.
Wonderful food and great service. Love the music on Wednesdays.
Food was great. Really appreciate our server, Nate. He really knew the menu and gave us great recommendations!
Amazing dining experience. Truly farm to table, Best mussels I've ever had.
We are out of towers celebrating our 27th anniversary in the Roanoke area. Local roots a farm to table restaurants with an extensive list of virginia wines was an immediate draw.
Arriving there we we slightly disappointed with the ambiance of the restaurant, but the waitress and the food options definitely put that element on the background.
Their shishitos appetizer is a must do for any reader that intends to go there and don’t forget the boozy prince Edward mussels, be sure to first remove all shells so that the mussels can dunk in the broth.
Very memorable. But romantic the restaurant is not
All great - exceptional service, yummy food, delicious wine.
Very personable service and delicious food!
Our waiter Abraham was very knowledgeable and helpful. He did not overly “bother” us, he attended to us just the right amount. Food was perfect as well. Such a neat place.
My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Local Roots. The service was amazing and the food was mouthwatering! I believe my pasta dish was the best pasta I've ever had. We will definitely be back!
Great food, attentive service, fun atmosphere. I highly recommend
The fall root vegetable soup was amazing. And the social distancing protocols made me feel safe.
Delicious fresh food, creatively assembled. Attentive service. Terrific neighborhood gem, worth seeking out.
Wonderful brunch as always
This place is awesome! It's a great local restaurant right in the Grandin Village.
Food was exceptional. Music was great.
We love this restaurant! Some menu items are better than others - it's all a matter of taste, but the staff always aims to please and really cares.
Excellent food and excellent service. Highly recommend this restaurant! Our waitress was exceptional and took great care of us.
Local Roots was a perfect lunch stop in Roanoke...healthy food, pleasant staff, and outdoor seating!
We just got engaged and Local Roots took great care of us with a complimentary dessert. Phenomenal food with great portions and all local ingredients. Tremendous experience for us out of town and would go back again!
Very nice. Food was excellent.
I visited Local Roots in September 2020 and had an *exceptional* experience. The reviews are legit - this place really is THAT worth it. I wasn't thrilled upon reading the menu online but the execution was beyond measure. Our server, Amanda, made the experience all the better. I do not know that I've ever had wait staff express so much sincere passion for food! Not only did she have unique insight to the menu but she suggested a progression/order to our meal and specific timing that was of another level.
We will certainly return when in Roanoke!
Sunday brunch was very enjoyable. Menu options were just right, and the portion sizes were filling. Thank you for a lovely experience and a delicious meal!
We have dined here three times. And the other two times our meals were excellent. One dish was just bad. Poorly cooked, the entire plate beige in color, Greasy, not flavor and the entire dish was mushy in texture. I ate a few bites and that was it. The other dish was OK but not great. This was nothing like our previous experiences when we had excellent food. Luckily we have Had better experiences so we would write off LR, but we are Hesitant to come back.
Excellent food and half off wines by the glass for happy hour?? Sign us up! Friendly and attentive service and COVID safe
Amazing food and service...Amanda was informative and a joy to be around
Wow. What a memorable night. The pasta was incredible and the vegetables were so good my 9 year old wanted more. The desserts were the perfect ending to a wonderful meal. We look forward to returning.
Great place. Terrific food. Nice service. Will come back again for date night
Sunday brunch of veggie eggs benedict and veggie frittata. Both very good. Service was also excellent.
Going away celebration.
Great food, good service, great place to spend our 15th anniversary.
I went here for dinner to celebrate my birthday. I had looked ahead at the menu online and some some dishes that looked good which is why I chose this place. Unfortunately when we arrived, the menu was different. It was a much smaller menu which is understandable due to the coronavirus, but most things on the menu didn’t appeal to me or had spicy ingredients with it which I’m sensitive to. I ended up ordering the burger which was excellent. Food was very good, just wish the menu was a bit more extensive, or if they could have updated the menu on the website.
Amanda made our Sunday brunch so much extra special. Everyone at our table truly love and value her tremendously!!! Besides the fantastic brunch, Amanda we’ll definitely keep us returning to Local Roots !!!
