The LOCAL Kitchen & Drinks of Wellesley
The Local is the perfect place to come with a group of friends or family for a brunch on Saturday, Sunday or holiday Mondays. Enjoy the chicken and waffles, crabby benny or the avocado toast served on multigrain bread with a slab of bacon, pickled onion and fried egg. The friendly atmosphere makes The Local a prime lunch spot for friends or a group of coworkers. Enjoy a flatbread sandwich such as the fig and prosciutto or a Reuben. Stay healthy with a light salad lunch like the Power Lunch Salad consisting of baby spinach and kale. Add chicken, steak, salmon or shrimp to any salad.
The Local has something for everyone on the menu. Try the stuffed local squash, TW's steak tips made with USDA sirloin tips or the IPA-battered fish and chips served with house tartar and slaw. The main menu features several gluten-free items.
Warm Potato Chips
french onion dip
Chicken & Butternut Squash Ravioli
grilled chicken, caramelized onions, cranberries, sage cream sauce
Chicken Parmesan Sandwich
brioche roll, chicken cutlets, san marzano tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella, hand cut fries
We each had salads, mine Asian style with sweet/sour chicken with rice, my wife’s with chicken and veggies. The best salads we have had in 5 years. We can’t wait to go back.
Birthday for family member
Great food, but a slightly too dark and almost a little run-down looking, especially when compared to the Wayland and Waltham Locals. Delicious food and swift, amiable service.
Mother’s Day dinner.
Swordfish was dry. Service was very slow.
The food is beyond par and the derives was terrible. He place was empty and it took a while to get everything. The food was flavorless. The waitress also didn’t know how to split a bill half cash half charge card
The waiter wasn’t pleasant at all. Never asked if we wanted desert just assumed we were done and brought check. First time here and the impression wasn’t good at all.
Would not recommend this specific location. The service there was awful. We ended up leaving and drove 20 minutes to the Waltham location - which is 110% better!! Save yourself the time and do not bother coming to this location.
Service and management are terrible and led to a bad overall experience. Restaurant was also very dark and extremely quiet for a beautiful Saturday afternoon. I will not be returning and wouldn’t recommend
I had a great time! Liked the location and the food. The bill was more than expected when it came however.
Great brussel sprouts!!
Split butternut squash ravioli and Margarita pizza, so yummy :)
Service was slow and the music was too loud foe that hour
Was pleasantly surprised to find a menu with as many healthy options, and our meal was delicious. The staff was happy and helpful, and the evening- one of our first indoor restaurant meals since COVID started- was indeed memorable for all the right reasons!
I like the Local a lot and it is my go to place for business lunch. The problem they constantly have it that they need to appreciate that they have 2 types of lunch customers - business folks that want to have a business lunch - i.e. need quiet Vs the parents that come in with their kids for lunch. PLEASE put the parents with kids in one section and business folks in another so that the two can co-exist in harmony or you risk driving the business folks away. And please keep the music down at lunch time - I had to ask twice to get the volume turned down as could not have a conversation.
The food is fantastic. Great service.
Consistently good food. Had steak tips, a little chewy. Gluten free pizza was excellent.
We ordered the steak tips and I recall that the price was about $24 per plate. Terrible quality meat. Fatty & grisly . I'd expect that level of beef from Applebee's. And the brussel sprout appetizer was just OK.
Excellent service, safe protocol, delicious food although the rice was slightly underdone. Will definitely go again.
More simple of a menu but great food with friendly service in a nice setting.
Delicious truffle fries and salads. Friendly and accommodating staff.
This place is beautiful inside. The food was great! We got the sesame chicken bowl, Fish & Chips and the Chicken Sandwich. Presentation and quality of food was fantastic! I'll be back for the Fish & Chips!
We had lunch here on a Sunday. It was very quiet vibe. The fig and arugula pizza was great and the fish and chips were crisp and fresh.
Great food and service we will be back
Great burgers!! The Local never disappoints! Their Covid precautions and table spacing allows patrons to feel safe.
Great food and service with attention to detail - especially during Covid.
It was great! we will come back for sure! I love to bring my whoel family for a fun saturday
Great food options. There was a lot I would have ordered which will make me come back to keep trying them. Service was friendly and helpful. Will be going to back to eat there as well as do pick up.
Delicious and wonderful dining! Will be back soon!
Great food and service. Love taking our college student from Babson for a good meal! Almost as good as home!
Really enjoyed our evening out at The Local. The cocktail menu featured interesting riffs on familiar favorites and the dinner menu has a little something for everyone. Definitely leave room for dessert...the chocolate cake was ah-MAZ-ing.
Great food, drinks and service!
Love this vibe! Very clear social distancing protocols. Menu is a bit limited and expensive but worth it for the quality of the food and drinks.
Great service person Lisa Burgoyne
Lights are probably too low, but otherwise nice evening
Great experience and service from bartender - food was ok versus previous trips - was later in the night so possibly that was a factor too
Great quick date night. Have been here twice in the last few weeks for a quick dinner.
Love this local gem. The food never disappoints. They are so accommodating during this crazy time. From the looks of it they're doing an outstanding take out business but I'd rather sit and enjoy the ease of being waited on by some of the nicest servers. PLUS I want to support all of them!!!
Trying to support restarting ts during covid but more and more finding prices are up and quality down. I have always enjoyed the local and this just was not good. I had my old standby sesame chicken bowl. The quality of the chicken was like frozen chicken nuggets...horrible
Great dining experience! We will be back!
food was delicious and prepared quickly. service was flawless
Great experience - excellent service - food was awesome
