Another great experience at the Local Room. Food was delicious, and the service was quick and friendly. I am so glad we have this as an option in Locust!
Food was very good. Ordered Cajun Sirloin and Grilled Salmon.
Service was excellent. Waiter did not hover, but always made sure drinks were full.
Only non-positive comment would be that we did not observe very good social distancing given the current events. Our chairs were back to back almost touching neighboring table.
Will definitely be back.
Very good food and service!
Great food, service and vibe! 🌟
Great food and service!!!!
Good food, good friendly service, great bar, a tad on the high $ side, will definitely go back. Easy booking on Open Table!
We went for my husband’s birthday. Food and service are excellent. Love the decor, the atmosphere and everything about this place.
Valentines Day dinner with the Bride. Wonderful restaurant with great food and awesome service!
Great secret place if you want to get out of Charlotte. Food was decent, wine was amazing. We enjoyed our visit. Thank you !!
Went to Local Room for Valentines dinner. They did not disappoint.
Wonderful dinner and exceptional atmosphere! Food was delicious!
Awesome restaurant with excellent food and service!
Today was our second time at Local Room. The aesthetics and ambiance of the place is amazing. The food has been (overall) solid both times. First visit was for dinner with a party of 8 and not a single complaint. We all ordered something from all four courses of the meal so we had a great variety from the menu. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and accommodating. It was upbeat and not stuffy at all. Definitely won our hearts this night.
The ONLY thing this night (which was a weekend night) was the bar staff was either just slow or slow due to the volume of people. I am not sure which one. Seems like they needed more than 3 bartenders for the huge bar and a full restaurant. This is the core of the restaurant and where the money comes in and waiting 20 minutes for a drink at your table or at the bar is not a good thing!! If you're waiting on food with a drink, the wait is much more tolerable.
Our meal today was during lunch and it was just okay. Our table had chicken penne, kids burger, blue wedge salad, fried okra, fried squash, and collard egg rolls. The best thing was the fried okra today!!! I will get this every visit so I hope this stays consistent. Just the right amount of crust! Egg rolls were cool coming out (but still okay tasting) and my son's fries were mushy and cool. The penne was just okay. The server was super young and seemed a little nervous. It certainly will not deter us from visiting again but it wasn't as great an experience as the dinner.
The atmosphere is #1 reason we will return.
We were so excited to try the Local Room for Valentine's Dinner. We were honestly a bit disappointed. We did have reservations (for 4) and were seated immediately which was great! Service was good. Salads/soup/croutons appetizer were all great.
My wife ordered the pork tenderloin. The portion size was very small for the price. 4 small (maybe 2" x 2" pieces). It was decent but not much flavor. Her fries were room temperature.
I ordered a ribeye and was very disappointed. It was the thinnest ribeye I've ever been served in a restaurant. (maybe 1/4 inch thick). Three of us at the table all ordered the ribeye and they were all the same. I ordered mine medium rare and it came out medium well. Very tough and chewy. Our reservation was later in the evening (8pm), so I assume its possible they were running out and we got what was left. ??
Overall, it was not worth the $80 we spent.
Valentine’s Day dinner
Went here for Valentine's Day with my husband and we were very please. Awesome food and specials. Great date night spot. cant wait to go again.
We had a very enjoyable dinner for two. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Service was exceptional and the price agreeable. However, the cuisine and price don’t match the atmosphere. We would have enjoyed it far more in a cozy setting with candlelight and moderate to soft music. We found it more of a noisy and distracting upscale sports bar as far as atmosphere goes. Still a definite 4/5 stars and highly recommended.
It was a wonderful experience! Everyone enjoyed their food. Everyone must try their ribeye! Delicious!!
Great experience! Such a fun place to meet with friends and have awesome drinks and a great meal!
Had a fine diner and good service. The salad was presented in a crooked bowl.
Was difficult to cut the cucumber. Kept tipping over.
Very pleased with our first dining experience at The Local Room! Overall, the food and drinks were great and had a fantastic presentation. We did have quite a time finding parking - spent almost 25 minutes waiting on spot and ended up parking at another local business across the way.
Happy to finally have a nice place to eat a little closer to home - We will be back!
We really enjoyed our time here. Jimmy was a most pleasant host. The salmon was delicious as were the scallops. Will return for sure!
Very enjoyable birthday dinner with family!
Although the serving sizes were a bit small, the flavor was amazing! Loved my house salad with citrus vinaigrette dressing. You definitely need to order the salmon if you like seafood. And the desserts were amazing!! Our table tried the raspberry white cake and the blonde and chocolate brownie. You cannot go wrong!!
Outstanding as always. Jimmy and the team do a great job
This place is awesome! Great teamwork from other servers and management! Food was delicious!! Also, make sure to save room for dessert! The brownie/blondie was amazing!!
Best grilled cheese sandwich I’ve ever had!! Super friendly staff too.
Hannah was a great server and the food was delicious.
The food was great and the service was awesome! Kayla is a wonderful, courteous waitress and met our every need.
It was a pleasant place to dine and everything was great. New place in town and should be checked out by all foodies. Food and service was outstanding and a great menu to select from
Great food and service! Great atmosphere too, will be going back!
Food was delicious as usual, we took advantage of the Monday night couples special and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Service was great, we always enjoy the wait staff and there banter as well as suggestions regarding the menu.
I cannot wait to go back!
Food and service was excellent
All great! Except for Ribeye, overpriced and dry for a $26 steak. Everything else was wonderful
Atmosphere was great. Seating and service was fast and prompt. Portion size of food was quite pricy for what you get. Certainly didn’t need any to go boxes. We also had appetizers prior and it’s a good thing we did or we’d have had to stop on the way home to grab some food.
We had a wonderful birthday dinner for my husband. Our server was amazing, and was very knowledgeable of the menu. The food was great and the service was wonderful.
Food is consistently great, service is wonderful! Whether you are local or passing through, you will not be disappointed coming here. And you MUST try the citrus dressing on the salad! Fresh made sweet potato cheesecake is to die for! Steaks and burgers are delicious!
Great food , great service.
I’m not from the Locust area but will go back next time I’m near Locust!
First time dining at The Local Room.. and was pleasantly surprised!! We got the southwest cheese dip for an appetizer and it was awesome! I had a blue cheese wedge salad and it was nice and fresh! My Husband got the “zebra chicken” and he liked it a lot and I got the special, which was an open faced meatloaf sandwich.. their meatloaf was amazing! I like how you can get many of their selections in a half or whole portion.. I don’t always eat all of my food, and I got the small portion of the meatloaf sandwich and still brought some home! Our waitress was Jordan, and she was super sweet and we had great service. We were checked on by the (owner/manager?) and he was great as well!! We will be back!
Great food and excellent service. We couldn’t take the cold patio and asked to move inside. Server and owner were very accommodating. Food was delicious and quick. Excited to have this restaurant in Locust and highly recommend. Only suggestion is to expand wine by the glass options!
