My friends and I, on my recommendation, went there as I had confirmed the previous week that there was to be an Irish whiskey tasting on the day we went. Turned out it'd been cancelled. I was the only one who really cared about that and the manager apologized and gave me a flight of four to sample. Couldn't have been happier and that was compounded by great service and good food.
Will definitely return.

We had a reservation for 3 people at 7 pm (made days in advance) with the specific request that we needed a table, NOT a high-top or a booth. Our guest has a back injury and those seating options will not do for her.
We arrived right on time and discovered that there was a notation for our seating needs, but they only had a high top for us. We waited 40 minutes (with some compted wine and popcorn) in a very crowd entry-way.
The manager came over to apologize but at that point, he couldnt make someone else move.
It was very disappointing, as there were tables available but they were being saved for other parties.

The food was excellent and the service (once we were seated) was very good.

What a great concept! I went for brunch with two friends, unaware of the "In Hungry" and "Out Happy" setup. Walking through the "In Hungry" door, we were greeted with upbeat music and LOADS of hot, fresh and fabulous food. Pick what you want, mosey through the "Happy Out" door, sit and eat and then head back for more. Unique dishes, happy staff, fun and fabulous decor. Highly recommend

Food was good but service was extremely slow. Took a really long time to take our order and then waited again for coffee/dessert. Also had to ask another server for our check because our server didn’t return for so long even after she knew we waited a while for our coffee/dessert. We have enjoyed Local Three in the past but it definitely was not a good dining experience this trip.

Amazing Saturday brunch. Really interesting combination of foodie flavors from a range of sweet to savory. The menu online (a day before) did not reflect what was offered, but it did not disappoint. All you can eat, buffet style. Many small children dining but you wouldn't have known it from the sound... all were busy enjoying their eggs and french toast! Occasionally, chilly when someone would enter off the patio. Where a warmer top or take a wrap or drink up on the bottomless coffee.

Restaurant was very attractive and food was delicious. It is classy, but comfortable. Nice ambiance. Bar is a focal point. Nice private room for a small group. A little hard to find, but worth it. The pot pie, shrimp small plate and ramen were very delicious. Nice house red wine!

Was fine! Keep returning out of location convenience, but price point and service level are mismatched on more visits than not. I appreciate the fun and humorous atmosphere, but once a server needs to be flagged down, repeating it twice more makes it feel like any ol’ chain.

We celebrated a birthday during our trip to Local Three. The service was great, although the server was new, she did an excellent job. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars, was that she was new and didn't know the menu as well as we had liked. Also, she boxed up what we were unable to eat and forgot to bring it back to our table, so when we got to the car we remembered that we forgot our leftovers. We didn't go back in for it, either.
With all of that said, the food was delicious. I had the chicken pot pie and he had the "Wellington", which was delicious, but quite on the rare side and the server didn't ask how we wanted it cooked, which would have been a better idea. The cheese tray was great, but the cheeses were very smelly. I love this restaurant and will defintely return, but I only gave 4 stars for this trip.

I wanted to love this place but just cannot overlook the bad. First we were given the a table next to the kitchen door in an relatively empty dining room. Service was good not great. Pricey east coast oysters were not properly shucked and most were pretty beat up like what you would expect from a low-end seafood place. Tuna first plate was the stand out of our meal. Crispy chickpeas were a great contrast in texture. Shrimp and grits were a complete miss however. Uninspiring in flavor or seasoning, the whole dish was spread out in a thin layer onto a large plate for some sort of dramatic display, but all this accomplished for the food was to cool it down rapidly so that it was completely room temperature by the time it was delivered. The server offered a replacement and were given some variation of a shrimp wonton that was equally as forgettable. We also had the burger at the suggestion of our server and it was good but nothing about it made us want to come back and try it again. Overall a bad experience that was close to 200 dollars for the two of us. We wouldn’t try hem again.

We love to come here for brunch on the weekends. We hadn’t been through in a while. Most of the waitstaff are new from what I could see. It started out going south straight from the start. We got seated and a noticed over my wife’s shoulder two of the waitstaff chatting away with each other for a few minutes. Come to find out one of them was our waitress. We were right in front of them and she saw us get seated. Why she wouldn’t come great us right away was beyond me. From there on out her service was very slow. This is the first time this has ever happens. I could go on but I won’t

Chris, Todd and Ryan never disappoint! Great spot for a drink, date or hooking up with friends.

Great drinks by professional bartenders who know and have perfected their craft.

Small sharing plates that are imaginative and typically have a southern spin!

Entrees change quite often and are always worth a try.

Way too loud for an intimate occasion. The sound carried and tables are tight. My wife’ s meal (chicken pot pie) was bland and need additional salt. My scallops were good but were way overpriced at $35 , when basically it was 4 scallops and a salad. Dessert for both of us was non- memorable. I had the Nutella Banana Panini. Something I could easily have made at home with a jar of Nutella, a banana and a waffle. The bright spot was the server who was attentive and courteous.
