The Westside Local
Friday & Saturday: 11 AM - 10 PM
Please note the brunch menu is only available on Sundays
We loved Westside Local. It was a great place for an early Sunday evening meal. The four of us had widely different choices of food as well as cocktails, wine and beer, and everything was fabulous. We had great service and enjoyed the casual atmosphere.
We had never been to Westside Local before, but we will definitely go back. Everything was fabulous!
Great food and service!
The food was awesome! However, something happened with our order. We got to the restaurant when it opened at 11am. We were the third table of people to sit down. After patiently waiting and watching tables of people who came in/ordered after us get their food (and in some cases pay their bills!), we finally asked about our meals around 11:50am. The waitress treated us like we didn't know how restaurants worked by implying that this was completely normal. Luckily, management was good and recognized that something was wrong (even told my partner that something was screwed up with the ticket). We know things happen, so we were ready to be forgiving, but the waitress basically gaslighted us. My three dining companions were not charged for their coffee as compensation. I had tea, for which I was still charged. This seemed like random compensation (since I was paying for my own meal, I did not get any compensation...).
We sat at our table for at least 5 minutes before we got a glass of water and then another 8-10 before we saw a waiter / waitress. Very disappointed. We often eat here and take guests. This was not a good experience this time. Waitress checked on us once during the meal. This will not be high on my list to return to
Friendly, food was excellent and a varied menu. Nice Change of Pace. I like the Farm to Table concept.
We had good service and great food! Was a little bummed the fries weren’t gluten-free and they were out of house chips, but all our food was delicious and we’ll go back!
Nice relaxed atmosphere. Great menu and service. Loved the pork chops and that they were off the bone. Beets were amazingly fresh.
Westside Local is our go-to! Always great for weeknight dining.
Wonderful food. Great service. We all enjoyed our dinners!
Ketchup that comes with fries sometimes tastes like marinara other times like Smokey bbq sauce (last time the Smokey bbq taste was not good). Please work towards a more traditional ketchup, less Smokey taste. Veggie burger is the best I have ever tasted! Seats in the bar area are not comfortable and need the fabric replaced (fabric is torn and lacks padding). Overall food is excellent.
Great food and art together in the same place. Hip spot to hang.
Great Sunday brunch. ⛪️
Excellent service. Outstanding food. Little noisy.
Our server was EXCELLENT. She made awesome recommendations and really elevated our experience!
We were a party of 6 gathering to wish our college students goodbye and my wife a last meal before surgery. Each of us ordered a different main course and we shared the antipasti plate. Actually took home food for the next day's dinner after surgery. Enjoyed the food and the waitress. Add on a glass of wine and some yummy chocolate cake and you're good to go.
I made reservations for brunch. I had the raisin bread French toast with blueberry jam and cream cheese, sausage and scrambled egg. Also, for a appetizer some fries. It was delicious! The atmosphere was good and the service was great. We got seated quickly and the waitress was very polite and helpful, she even gave my friend a tip on what she should try. We even shared a slice of cake. My experience was memorable and I'll be attending the Westside Local in the near future.
I always love Westside local. Such a quaint venue and great food.
Reliably delicious food, friendly service, located in a cool neighborhood in the heart of KC!
Had a great experience at The Westside Local. Very friendly staff who were very knowledgeable. The best part was being able to take our pup with us. Friendly environment and good location.
This was an all around good experience. From enjoying the amazing view of the city on our ride to the restaurant to the quaint, cozy atmosphere of the dining area, we enjoyed every detail. The food offered was a delicious farm to table experience. I highly recommend Westside Local.
I have dined at Westside Local several times and prior to this past Saturday, the experiences were consistently AWESOME. However, we sat in the bar area and Chris was our waiter. My friend had never dined there before, so I informed Chris of that and was expecting some "additional information" about this wonderful restaurant and got "0" from Chris. He was not friendly to us and seemed to care less. I was actually so shocked and disappointed, I did not know what to say. Since it was a seemingly slow afternoon (we ate at 1230 pm), I came to the conclusion that Chris was perhaps not having a good day. However, considering the road closure, difficulty that my friend (who had never been there before) had getting to the restaurant, and the poor service--I will think twice before I dine at Westside local again. I have so many options that it may not be worth it. In summary: Chris was a downer and made me not want to return.
The food and atmosphere are wonderful, well worth the drive from Leawood. I particularly love the menu variety with something for everyone from burger eaters to healthy vegetarian zealots. My son, a foodie from NYC, and I both give it five stars!
We were able to grab great food before going to the Shania Twain concert. Get service and always great food!!
Great food in a hip atmosphere. Love the collage art that is up now.
40th Birthday brunch
Sumptuous food and great service. We’d go back for sure. Louder than most smaller venues. Not an easy choice for those with hearing challenges.
I don’t think we will be back to Westside Local anytime soon. Our meals were disappointing. The salmon was served over al dente spaghetti squash that was clumped together. Another entree, the pulled chicken sandwich, was so spicy my friend was unable to eat it. Mac and cheese and grilled cheese entrees were good as usual.
Felt like everything was overpriced for the quality.
My favorite spot in KC. Always a 5-star experience!
The burgers are always great. The venue is fun and the servers are always polite and efficient.
Excellent as always
You'd be hard-pressed to find a better burger, whether it's the jalepeno/jam or the fajita. We were a little disappointed in the limited draft beer choices. Granted, it's a hot summer, but having at least one dark beer on tap -- even if not a tasty stout -- would be nice. The service was pretty good; we were glad to be seated right away at our reserved table, and appreciated not feeling rushed to leave even though we were ordering nothing else. Thanks for continuing to fill water glasses!
Wonderful lasagna special stuffed with a sweeter than usual nutmeg-enhanced tomato sauce with a crumbled pork and bison filling.....generous portion even for a stout old fellow! Chocolate cake so rich it made our teeth and gums momentarily purple.....was it beet juice? Fun and friendly place to celebrate a birthday.
Amazing burgers, the jalapeño jam burger is one to remember! As well as the fajita burger ❤️
Localities menu always good for a light meal/small plate meal. Veggie burger is one of the best in town.
The veggie burger left a lot to be desired. It was tasteless and undercooked. It fell apart out of the bun. The good part is that it was vegan. If it was made with less oil, cooked longer to have some texture, given some spices, and served on a whole grain bun, then you'd have something.
Not as good as it used to be...food is average, wait staff not particularly interested in clearing the table between courses or taking drink orders past the first round. Meh all around. Too bad...this place was once a gem
Wonderful ambiance, attentive service and delicious food.
Great food. Seasonal options. Variety of choice. Great custom cocktails. Service could be better.
Fun time in a relaxed atmosphere. Service staff was very accommodating and helpful. Very busy night and kitchen staff was a bit behind. Food normally is very good but this night was just good. Burger a bit over cooked as well as the salmon. The cold plate was very good and could be a meal by it self. Check it out. We will be back soon.
