Great food, good service!
Good food and service
Loved everything about it.
We had a great experience at local! Our service was phenomenal and the food was even better than expected! They were very accommodating of our time frame for Shea’s. I would definitely go back for dinner and drinks!
When we got there we had to show ID to get in and were told that even though we had reservations that it could be awhile before we would get to sit down as the Halloween bar crawl was going on. We had concert tickets so we didn’t really have time to just wait around. Luckily we ended up being taken right to a table.
The food was great and the service was pretty good. I wasn’t done with my pretzel stick (had it on my little app plate in front of me) when someone came by and took the basket they had been served in which also still contained the dipping sauces. So I had to eat my pretzel without any sauce.
The beer selection is great and our drinks/food came pretty quickly. My only other complaint was that the music was SUPER loud. I get that there was some sort of event going on in a way, but it was pretty much impossible to have any kind of conversation with the rest of my group.
Went here for dinner on a slow Sunday evening with 2 others. Service was fast, super friendly and attentive. I had the Tuxedo Ahi Salad, it was great and the ginger slaw was SO good! I can't wait to go back. Good beer list, companions recommend the cocktails.
We love this place especially for Sunday brunch. My one criticism would be they utilize all cocktail style tables. they have only 1 booth to accomodate 4 to 5 people. We usually bring my elderly mother and she has a very difficult time with the seating. I myself am not comfortable with the seating. I wish they could have a few more dining style tables so there would be more comfortable seating choices. But, we do love it there, great food & service.
The service and food were amazing. My husband and I had a great time. We will definitely return!
First visit to this restaurant turned out to be amazing. Food was outstanding, Drinks were great
and atmosphere was perfect!
Dinner before a show at Shea’s
The food was top notch. The salads were large, the steak was cooked nicely, and the service was excellent.
If your looking for a casual dining , bar atmosphere this is a good place. Food was good, reasonsable priced. Would go back!
The food was very good and reasonably priced. The waitress was excellent. We did wish they had some low tables though, and not just high tops.
Just a nice place. Great food at a reasonable price.
Excellent meal...Cheektowaga polka which had potato pierogi and short braised ribs was delicious!! My favorite meal and we will be back for it. Don't take it off the menu please. Oh yeah...the doughnut dessert w ice cream was perfect ending... yum!
Food was typical bar food although the fried fish entree was pretty good!
We did not stay because they only had a limited menu for Sundays and this was not indicated in their website.
Had a wonderful time and meal with friends. Sat outside on a lovely evening.
Nice place but nothing stood out to make it memorable. The food was OK and the beer selection was pretty good.
Great place to eat at. The wife and I just decided to go in last minute and I'm glad that we did. The service was phenomenal Brandon was definitely on his A-game. The drinks were very good. Matter of fact I drink my wife's drink along with mine. The food was hot, and very delicious. We will definitely go back again.
Our food was adequate. My beef on weck had very well done roast beef, but it had a good flavor. I have had better wings at other establishments. A few of the workers were standing outside, close to where we were eating and they were smoking near the door. It was very distracting and smelled terrible. It was an easy place to go for dinner before going to Shea's.
Great food and cocktail menu. Tom was a great server and answered all of our questions!
We went to Local ahead of a show at Shea's after finding it on Open Table. It was much more casual than we expected--really more of a bar than a restaurant, with high tables arranged along the wall of the bar. Menu was minimal. We expected more after visiting the Local in the Wehrle Golf Dome recently. This place is fine for a casual meal or bar food, but lots of better fine dining options in Downtown Buffalo.
We had a large party and they were so accommodating. Our food was delicious but our service was even better
Food was excellent, great ambiance, excellent service.
Great live music!
Out with friends
First, they gave out table away and told us that we would have to wait 40 minutes past our time (we were 20 min early!) for a table but that we could eat at the bar. We accommodated and placed an order. Then we were told that the entrees and petite entrees were not available and all we could order were sandwiches and appetizers. We again accommodated. Our food was not good, arrived very late making us late for the concert we had tickets to. We were given slow service and the food was mediocre. At the end, we were given 4 drink tokens which are essentially useless as we will never go there again!
We had a great time. Really enjoyed the band from Pennsylvania, a talented group of young people!
Had a large party of 8 in town and made a reservation here two hours before a concert we were scheduled to attend. Really nothing I can say positive about the place. It was quite loud, so impossible to have a conversation, but the bigger issue was the speed of service. We sat down soon after 5:30, and had told our server we were ready to order our food given our concert timing, but he had several tables he was attending to so was unable to take our order when we told him we were ready. We ordered right around 6:00 (15 minutes after we said we were ready to order) and told him we needed to leave in time to get to the concert at 7:30. He came by around 6:45 and indicated food would be served in 5 minutes. One of the 8 orders came out about 10 minutes later, the rest followed by another 10 minutes, so we wound up being late to the concert. Food was marginal, and I was unable to eat my meal as it hadn't come out by 7:10 so I informed the waiter not to bring it out. Everyone else in my party rushed to finish as much of their meal as they could quickly, but thought the service level wasn't what I expected for a large party that spent over $250 on the meal. I won't be back.
Great service, cool looking place and the ahi tuna salad was dynamite.
Service was terrific, but I was expecting a different menu. Dinner entrees weren’t available, so I had my heart set on one thing, but had to order something else. The poutine was quite good. If we lived closer we’d return, but we can get good bar food closer to home.
Father’s Day brunch and we chose Local for our first time dining there and it was an excellent choice. We each were happy with our meals, but my Silo City French toast was the clear winner...my kids loved the texture and flavor and it was too much for me to finish alone so we all won!
Great service for large groups!
I enjoyed the chicken breast and avocado sandwich. It was very delicious. A little messy to eat. Our waitress was very attentive and personable. We ate there before going to a show at Shea's and we were not rushed and had enough time to enjoy a drink and dinner.
Great food in upbeat atmosphere! Loved the short ribs
Before heading off to the theater on a recent Friday Our small crew decided to give The Local Kitchen a try. Both the extensive beer selections and the mixed drink menu gave us a bit of a dilemma. After the 1st round this was solved when we inquired about if they do Beer Flights (none were listed on the menu) and yes, they do.
The food was well-made and flavorful. Two us went for the beer batter Fish Fry enjoying both the star of the entree as well as its sides: delightful brussel-slaw, a tasty pasta salad and fries (which though not remarkable, were nicely made.) Our other companion got the Bison burger which fully met their expectations.
We shared their donut dessert with its bacon. A happy ending to a fun meal.
Great Beef on Weck, Wings not that great - not enough sauce
Great tasting food at the perfect price point. It is worth checking this place out.
My experience was wonderful! Food great. Server great. Atmosphere great!
