    Steak was undercooked when sent back it was inedible and cold. Wasted $. Tried this place a while back and it wasn’t good but decided to give it another try. Big mistake.

    My wife and I enjoyed the Local Room. We’ve always passed by it and wanted to try it out. The best way to describe the Local Room cuisine is a well-done home-cooked meal with a twist. The food was fantastic and delicious. The service was excellent. Overall, we will come back again.

    Will always come here for ambiance and service. It is always phenomenal. Absolutely the right place for just drinks! Food this time was sub-par. The sweetness on the fried green tomatoes was not for us at all; the texture and crispness was on point! Salmon was dry and way over-cooked. The fries are too thin for them to be “cheese fries”. The pork chops was too undercooked and the red sauce with it was not a good fit. Just didn’t hit right at all this visit. NY strip was very good!! Won’t go through every dish, but too many misses for our large tab. Not a dealbreaker but will not likely go back anytime soon.

    We always enjoy our meal, however this time the food wasn’t anything to rave about. The fried green tomatoes were hard and the ribeye was 50% fat with not much flavor. Also the fries were oily and not crispy. The service was great! We rarely complain, but as being a business owner I would like to know if there are issues with my establishment.

    Saturday night and a party of five so we made a reservation for 6:30. Had to wait when we got there for the table to be set, then waited til almost 7 and still no service — not even water. Finally spoke to hostess who immediately remedied the situation. Appetizers were on the house. Very much appreciated. Food was great. Server was attentive. We ended up being very pleased with the experience overall — and we’ll be back!

    We celebrated my wife's birthday with a lovely duck entree and rosemary potatoes. My tortellini with chicken and shrimp was delicious. Annie was our server, and kept glasses filled and our needs met with a smile. Apple cobbler with walnuts and ice cream was the perfect ending. Highly recommended!

    We made a reservation last minute for Queens Feast Restaurant week and we had a great meal but our waiter made the whole experience that much better. He was attentive, entertaining and made it more personal. We all enjoyed our meals and all had something different. We will be back for couples night or 1/2 price wine Wednesdays or any other impromptu dinner occasion!

    All food (ribeye, salmon, gnocci, chicken melt) was outstanding. Great taste, temperature, Beautiful presentation. Waitress Michelle was the best wait staff I have ever had. (and I am a boomer so I have years of eating out experience) Attentive, intuitive, pleasant, helpful. Never had anyone pay so much attention to the tiny details. A truly wonderful meal.

    The food is kind of average - nothing really stood out as exceptional. We had a party of 8 and two steaks came out wildly undercooked. That said, the restaurant staff did every thing they could to make it right. Our waitress - who I am 90% is named Carly - was amazing. The management was great. Even though we were there close to closing, we didn’t feel rushed to leave.

    The 1st and so far only time at the Local Room was for my wife and my 15th anniversary diner. Our waiter was Chase. And he was charming and knowledgeable about the drinks the menu and the food . We highly reccomend him and the Local Room for any occasion! The food was delicious and portions were perfect . Try the fried green tomatoes for a yummy new twist to a southern favorite!
