Went late around 930 to avoid the huge wait time and was seated right away. Gumbo is always good still one of the best I have ever had. Wife had the Caprese which she stated she could make better at home and also stated they could use a few better tasting vegetarian options. I had the steak and cheese which... More

Local Republic offers a small, but full menu to suite any taste. They offer a large wine and craft beer selection as well. They have apps, soups, salads, sandwiches, awesome burgers (strongly recommend "The Sink Burger"), and full dinners. The specials vary and always prove to be exceptional. Their side dishes are amazing and include pimento cheese grits, goat cheese... More

We were here for dinner on a Thursday night. It was a 45 minute wait. It was our first time there. The hostess did a great job but the rest of the staff wasn't so awesome. Upon finally getting a table - we could see our waiter "dancing" and goofing around with other wAiters while we waited 10 minutes before... More

Love meeting friend at LR for lunch, dinner or just a good beer. They prepare some of the most unique, delicious food in the area. The atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable. It's our 'go to' restaurant when friends are in town visiting, or we want to meet up with friends before catching a show at The Aurora, or celebrating...we find... More

Local Republic is my favorite restaurant. Their menu is very creative with great flavor combinations and they have an excellent craft beer selection. Mr Jones burger is my first choice always...pimento cheese, jalapenos, and bacon. The Cuban, fish tacos, and shrimp & grits are great. During our last visit my wife & I split the surf & turf that included... More

Our plan to arrive early for the parade and eat dinner was a brilliant idea! We were seated after a short wait and were lucky to beat the huge crowd that came for the festivities. Our waiter (Adam) was very nice and extremely efficient. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. This was our first visit, but certainly not our... More

We absolutely loved our meal at Local Republic and will certainly return again. We had a delicious craft beer while waiting for our table. So nice to see a restaurant so busy on the square. Local Republic has some of the coolest staff around. Everyone was friendly and genuinely acted like they enjoyed working there. We both had the jerk... More

Local Republic never fails to produce a great meal. They are more of a organic or locally grown food restaurant so a little pricier, however, well worth it. Service is always good, staff is friendly and gives good suggestions. We are repeat customers and go whenever we can.

I like the atmosphere and the craft beers. However, the food is only okay, and I tried 80% of what's on the menu, with the hope that one is a hit.

We are going to miss the crew and food here when we leave. This last time we went they even had Evil Twin! The food and service is always great although the wait can sometimes be long, but well worth it. If you are in the Lawrenceville area this a must eat place.
