it's the staff at the Local which makes this restaurant a place to visit. Don't get me wrong - their tomato soup is to die for and as a vegetarian, I always have great choices. All the little nooks and crannies allow parties some privacy...More

I went with two other ladies while in Minneapolis for a conference. Our dinner was delicious and the scene was perfect for an Irish Pub Experience. Salmon dish with fresh veggies with Bread Pudding for dessert. I'd go back again.

The decor is your standard Irish pub, but the bar is enormous, stretching around the entire length of the pub. It was a great place to find a seat on a crowded weeknight for a pint and some food. The fish and chips was recommended...More

I loved the interior of the restaurant and all the woodwork. The bar running down the middle of the restaurant was a great place for a solo diner to eat. Good lunch menu with smaller portions. I can see where this would be a great...More
