Over crowded – The place is fine...but you have to remember that a place is only good if you can get a chance to experience it. There is nothing fun about wanting to unwind after work or go out for an enjoyed meal/drink on the weekend and have to deal with a far too crowded restaurant.

Of course, this means folks like the place. But, again, the bottom-line is to not count on this place unless you like to wait.

Minneapolis gets it right – Went for dinner with a group of 8 people on a Tues night. We had a nice table reserved in the corner hidden away fro the rest of the bar/restaurant. great beers on tap, every kind of Irish whiskey available, and decent Irish food. Great layout, many different areas to eat, drink and relax. Nice patio as well, always packed

Highly Recommended! – I've been to The Local numerous times, and have never been disappointed. They have a LARGE selection of imported beers on tap and great food. The portions of food are very large so go with an empty stomach!

Interesting but average – The fish and chips were good, and did get to me hot. I highly recommend them.

I liked the wooden decor but the noise and overcrowding diminished it's attractiveness.

I think they're probably understaffed. Our server twice talked about how busy they were, and to give him a minute. I think he did his best but was overwhelmed.

Local Mediocrity. . . – The atmosphere is very pub-like, as expected. It is the service that was abominable. Half our drink order did not arrive until 2 requests had been made to the server, and only then did they arrive without explanation or apology. I was here during a noon hour for lunch with 14 officemates. Perhaps it was the size of our party that threw them off. The menu was as expected with plenty of sandwiches and pub offerings that sounded better than they were. The fish and chips were greasy and soggy. The Irish stew looked oddly institutional. The grilled halibut was the saving grace as were the key lime pie. The tap brew offerings were a definite bright spot with good pours of Guiness. This is probably a nice spot for a cold one but if hungry, look elsewhere.

Great at off peak dining hours – I love this place. It has old world charm and can be very romantic. It is a great place to eat and have a drink after a long day of shopping as long as you don't get there during peak dinner hours on the week-end. Then the Local becomes loud and smokey. Leave the week-ends for hanging with friends on the wonderful sectioned off "den" like areas. This is great for social gatherings.
