a little on the expensive side for me, about $25 for an entree. But all courses were very tasty. Service was great and the patio is very nice.

Although the noise level was deafening, we all had a great time. We sat in one of the center booths, which is very comfortable. However, we will try to sit somewhere that does not have so much noise, maybe a perimeter table. Warning, three of us ordered Gin and Tonics, and our first round of drinks were made with flat tonic water. Overall the food is very good, and it easy to get to and not far from our home, and will become one of our regular spots to share a meal with friends.

Management - please expand your pickle brined fried chicken to include white meat. There are a lot of us out there that do not like dark meat. Thank you!

Hello Susan, Thank you for your feedback. We will make sure to take your comments into consideration for future menu development. We had three different large parties in the restaurant on Saturday night which certainly played into the noise factor. For that we apologize. I'm happy to hear that you overall enjoyed your experience nonetheless, and we hope to welcome you back soon! Best regards, The LT Management Team

This is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. It is a very stylish and relaxed atmosphere. Love the screened in porch! Lots of dining options. The food was all very good. I had the fish and chips, which were good...but had too much breading. Salads were good...as well as the goat cheese appetizer. The bread accompanying the appetizer was not in proportion to the amount of dip, and I was charged for more bread. Minor stuff. I look forward to going again!

It's a lovely addition to the neighborhood. Would enjoy if the breakfast/brunch menu had more variety. Husband liked the Cowboy potatoes because the peppers were fresh and perfectly cooked (still crisp). Chorizo breakfast tacos are better without the meat. Dinner menu was fun and delicious.

We ate there earlier this year and loved everything we had, especially the portobello ‘fries’. They were lightly tempura battered and fantastic! This time they were heavily breaded (about 1/4” thick) and fried, and far fewer. All you tasted was the doughy batter. Yuck. When we mentioned this, we were told about a chef change. We also had the Margherita pizza which was ok. We’ll give it another shot to try the entrees. It’s just disappointing the portobello ‘fries’ were lowered to pub-grub fair.

Local Traveler serves the tastes of many types of diners. Inside is more chic and contemporary, while the patio serves drinks at a bar with a much more casual vibe. There is live music on Friday and Saturday nights that lends to the casual atmosphere although it is a little loud. If you want conversation ask for a table away from the stage. The food is American Contemporary and well prepared. Service is smart, but not solicitous.

Made a reservation for father's day brunch. When we arrived the restaurant was about 1/3 full. Waiter started out gregarious and engaged and recommended their steak sandwich which he said was the best in town. Turns out they had taken the steak sandwich off the menu and were no longer serving it. We ordered cinnamon rolls as an appetizer (it was around 11:30am) and they said they had made 34 and were now out. We ordered an appetizer which did not arrive for close to an hour. When we asked about the holdup the waiter said they are "really busy." It is a large restaurant, but was no more than 1/3 full. When the food finally did show up, it was fine but certainly not worth returning for. I had an omelette which was as thick as my fist and low on flavor or freshness. It was supposed to come with a bibb salad - it came with a spinach salad with 1 piece of bibb lettuce. Decor was nice and menu looked good, but overall this was a disappointing experience.

Another great dinner on a Saturday evening. We enjoyed a leisurely paced meal on the patio listening to the gentleman play guitar. (He really did need a light on him as he stood in the dark most of the evening!) Our server was nice but a little scattered. Overall a great evening. I discovered the tasty cucumber gimlet tonight so I had to have a few. We know we can always count on this place to do us right. (We also love the valet that's always there. He's so happy, even in the pouring rain!!).

We went for Mother's Day. There was a prix fixe menu for $24 that I thought was a great value. My MIL and I each had a wonderful omelet and bibb salad. My husband's brisket hash was underwhelming. The potatoes and peppers were al dente at best, verging on raw, and there was about 1 oz of brisket on the plate. That being said, we've been here for dinner on a regular night and it was great. I think the Mother's Day crowd was overwhelming and the service reflected it. However, the ambiance made up for it! So nice out on the patio and I was just fine nursing my mimosa. We'll go back!

When we arrived we were told by the hostess that our table was ready, but there seemed to be some confusion about seating us. Our hostess disappeared and a second person showed up and attended another group which arrived after us. We finally spoke up and asked about our table. Not the first time I've had an issue upon arriving. The young lady who is usually there always seems to be pre occupied with something. After we were shown to our table our waiter arrived promptly and introduced himself. He brought us water and gave us a chance to look at the drink menu and answer a few questions. After taking our drink order and appetizer order, he came back a few minutes later to let us know our drinks were being worked on and he then took our food order. He came back after that to let us know the bar was backed up and if we needed anything else. After a few minutes most of our drinks arrived as well as our salads. No sign of the appetizer. Soon the appetizer arrived followed by our food.
Timing of everything seemed to be off for everything. I don't blame our server as he made sure to communicate with us and make sure we were okay. The food was okay and seems to have improved over the past year. Service still seems to struggle with consistency. My prior visit two weeks ago the waiter disappeared after taking our order. And we always seem to have a problem at the front desk.
As much as I want to support local Neighborhood business, I'm probably less likely to comeback on a regular basis.

Ahi appetizer looked beautiful. Tamsted great but the excessive tough membranes grossed us out.
Pointed it out to server who said he’d tell chef to trim better
Wedge salad request Ranch dressing.
First bite my friend took was shock at having the most hated bleh cheese in her mouth.
Mistakes happen.
Your outside seating looks great for another try

Hi Abigail, Thank you for your feedback on the food. We will make sure to train our service staff to ask about whether guests still want blue cheese crumbles on their wedge salad when a substitution is made in the future. Please accept our apologies, and I hope we were able to fix you a salad without blue cheese to remedy the situation. We look forward to welcoming you again to our patio soon!

I love this place & have been multiple times. This was my least favorite experience. Our waiter let us know they were short staffed & there were 2 large tables, but even after the large tables left the service was incredibly slow. I truly think it was a fluke day because I've had wonderful service in the past! The patio is fabulous & everything we ate was delicious!
