Irish
Our doors welcome you into the old world. In contrast with reputations in the lore of the Irish, our food is a high priority. Fish & Chips, the classics and more than a few ringers for the worldly eaters. The craic is good. Come find a corner of the bar to lean up against, a snug to gather friends inside, or a lovely pub table to watch the world go by as you imbibe the finest pour.

The Local Irish Pub was founded on December 17th, 1997, and celebrates over two decades of enduring loyalty and adoration for its many offerings, from a beautiful bar featuring a hand-carved back bar, numerous nooks and crannies for exchanging secrets, and ample space for telling flat-out lies. Celebrate the highs and the lows in our private event spaces. The West End location is the 2nd location of this mini Irish Empire, opening in February of 2019.

    Great food! Liked the semi-private booths. After seated by hostess waited long time but no server came. Had to go find someone to serve us. But after that server was attentive. On the expensive side for $15 burgers. Definitely would go back and recommend to others.

    The member birthday special is awesome and our server (Lexi I believe) was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The regular prices are creeping up there a bit. We did have a great time and will go back.

    Service was excellent, almost too attentive, frequently stopping by asking if we needed anything. Food was very good, hot and fresh. The atmosphere for a weekday lunch was friendly and relatively quiet.

    Surprisingly uncrowded on a summer Saturday evening at 7PM our party of six was seated at a long table directly under an air conditioning vent, not a good start, even on a summer evening. It was freezing. Service was prompt, and it was easy to carry on a conversation as there weren't many people at the nearby bar -it was quite- a nice surprise. But the food! I had corned beef and cabbage, a traditional Irish dish. The menu read Roasted Corned beef and cabbage with potatoes and carrots. The corned beef rather than in slices of brisket came in 1 inch chunks together with pieces of potato and carrots and a couple of thick slabs of cabbage. The dish had an overall oily consistency, and whatever they did to it you could barely taste that it was corned beef, the major clue though that it was was the color. The cabbage totally devoid of taste. Less typical of pub food was the ahi tuna salad said not to be very good, but one vegetarian loved the very burger (with cheese). We will not be back.

    Server seemed bored even though we were there on a Sunday and it wasn't busy. Food was very average. had the fish and chips which i thought was their specialty. was one piece of fish, fairly greasy. my tablemate had shep pie which was good. like the old world ambiance but expected more of the food from my old trips to the orig local. would probably come back for HH sometime but not spend that much for a mediocre dinner.

    I was sad when I heard Cooper was changing, but decided I should give it the place as the Local a try. I was happy to find the menu was very similar, and that the ambiance only got better. The service was excellent. I'll be back!

    The Vincent Burger was one of the best burgers I've ever had. Also the booth seating was prime.

    My meatloaf was not very hot, on the dry side. I did enjoy myself, server was cheerful, happy, friendly, knowledgeable. A little pricey.
