Local Three Ratings and Reviews
As usual the staff was friendly and attentive and FUNNY! Local Three is still at the top of my list of favorite Atlanta brunch places - and restaurants in general. I sure do wish I still drank bourbons because the bar is mighty impressive. Will always have good things to say about this establishment!
The food here is the best in Atlanta. Everything we ordered was flavored perfectly. I always love coming to this restaurant. The food and the vibe are exactly what I am looking for when I go out. I brought someone who hadn't been here before and now I think it will be his favorite restaurant too!
This is one of my favorite restaurants EVER! I have always loved the food, which is delicious and inventive, but the wonderful people I've met and experiences I've had there keep me coming back. I highly recommend the house specialty cocktails and/or a neat pour of a bottle from their astoundingly lengthy Bourbon list. Try several items, even if you have to take some of them home. And be sure to save room for dessert! The blackberry cobbler and a stiff Caucasian were the best way to end this particular meal.
Local Three was great! A friend and I went for the Sunday brunch buffet, and it did not disappoint! The drinks were great, the food even better, and it wasn’t crazy expensive. It’s got a really cool rustic-yet-chic vibe. The only downside I would say is it’s very difficult to find if you’ve never been before. But it’s definitely worth the hunt!
We had heard about the Sunday brunch offering and reserved a table after church to experience it for ourselves and to celebrate a birthday. Seating was prompt and timely, and we were served almost instantly upon seating. Our server fully explained the brunch offerings and logistics, so we jumped right into the kitchen-arrayed buffet. The kitchen staff was cordial and helped explain the varied selections on the serving line. All food items were freshly prepared.
I confess we made three passes through the buffet, starting with tasty appetizers, then migrating to breakfast fare, and finally enjoying the luncheon entrees and sides with desserts. Our used dishes were always cleared before we returned to our table from the kitchen even though the place was quite busy. Overall, the report we had gotten from others was affirmed. We had a marvelous experience at a very fair price.
The menu had a lot of great dishes, and it is great that the ingredients are all very fresh. Overall, our experience was great, but I am giving some three stars for two reasons: 1) Two of the guests got the pork chop, and both were over cooked and dry. 2) For the price, I would expect some of the dishes to have more than just the entree. Evidently the sides are mostly a-la-carte, and I have been at too many other restaurants that for the same price, you get equivalent food with sides. One last very positive comment - the wait staff was great, and the atmosphere was very good for conversation (not too loud).
Wonderful food with a very whimsical naming scheme. Love the interior and pictures of The Jesus and The Dude from the Big Lebowski. The McDowell is a nice throw back order from Coming to America. Ordered the brussels, rabbit, popcorn and it was tasty. The popcorn was an excellent pairing with the Oatmeal stout. Entrees were the pork chop and the braised brisket stroganoff and they were delightful. The pork chops we're a perfect bite with the sweet potato mash and the cranberry sauce.
For dessert, we had the blackberry cobbler with lemon curd and it was fantastic. A nice light finish with extremely crisp citrusy flavors
We arrived almost 45 minutes late due to traffic and other circumstances but they were so accommodating and still sat us.
We ordered the pot stickers for appetizer, they were pretty good with the horseradish sauce. I didn’t like that they were fried but still good.
We had the pork chop and the flat iron steak for the main. The pork chop was cooked well, bourbon glaze was evident and tasted delicious.
The steak though was amazing. Probably one of the best steaks I’ve ever eaten. It was so juicy and tender and the taste was really well seasoned.
Overall a great experience!
Though our food was mostly delicious, I was really disappointed in the bland flavors of the
butternut squash soup, though very grateful for the always yummy brussel sprouts. Our server Nick, was attentive when he was helping us, and very helpful with the wines we were served. It got busy though and I think he may have been helping more than he could handle well.
We will definitely be back!
An off night tonight. Lots of backlog, though not especially busy. Drinks were slow. Falafel appetizer was gummy. One fish entrée was room temperature at first. Nothing was offered in the delay, and I picked at my partner's plate instead. $100 bucks later. Gonna take a break from here for awhile.
Our waiter failed to notify us of last call. As a result, we missed a second go-round for food. We specifically saved certain items for the second trip. This was a HUGE disappointment, as I was introducing an out-of-town client to Local Three. The waiter tried to make it up by bringing "scraps" of what he could gather. #NotTheExperienceIWasGoingFor
The Local three has a unique location. It was a little tricky to find and it felt like we were entering a speak easy. The Local Three is located in a large multiple story building that I think is used for business during the day. We did not see anyone but a guard as we entered. Once we opened the door to the restaurant we found a lively crowd and a really cool restaurant. The staff was very good as was the food. We really enjoyed the night. Go to the Local Three. You will like it.
Great food, fantastic drinks, wonderful service and a tremendous value. Our group of five ordered 7 plates and 1 entree for a shared dining experience. We left room for desert and were not disappointed with their Snickers, Apple Tort and Pudding. Overall a fantastic experience. Note the restaurant was a bit difficult to find with limited signage outside.
I have been to this restaurant at least 20 times before. The food and servers are great. I felt like it’s important to leave a low star rating because the host staff today (10/29/17) for brunch are that bad it destroyed the entire brunch meal.
Started with her pointing her finger to me when she was on the phone. No eye contact, heavy attitude like I had done something to disturb her.
Secondly she flat out refused and then rolled her eyes when we requested a table that could accommodate someone with a broken leg.
Again food great everything else was ruined by her and that appalling attitude.
If someone wants to reach out from restaurant I’ll be happy to provide more details
As we have come to expect, Local Three provided a great dining experience. We enjoyed creative cocktails and small plates to start our dinner. The locally sourced items on the list of entrees were delightful. The dessert was delicious as well.
What we really appreciated, however, that we did not feel rushed through the courses of our meal. We opted for a 5:30 p.m. seating in order to have a leisurely dinner before a show at the Fox Theatre. Their timing was ideal. There was such sufficient time between courses that we did not feel stuffed (despite the generous portions).
Eaten here a number of times. And have always liked it. We've had special occasions in their private rooms...great! I tried a new menu item this time and was disappointed.
I like this place but the lunch menu, this time, seemed limited and dull.
I'll go back again, of course.
