We love this place! During our recent visit to Minneapolis, we came here twice. Outstanding service. Great beer selection. I recommend the Dead Irish Poet stout. We loved the wall eye appetizer, tomatoes and Gouda soup and the club sandwich. Can't wait to visit again.

Great atmosphere. Was there on a Saturday morning and the soccer games/fans made for an entertaining time. Host and waitress accommodated my request to put aan important B1G NCAA football game on one of the TVs. Food was good and beer prices reasonable.

I was with a large group of people that had a buffet of heavy appetizers and drinks. The service that Thomas provided was phenomenal and the flavor and temperature of the food was excellent!

Cool place to go for a couple of beers. Food selection was limited but that may have been because of late menu. There was nothing healthy on that menu and what we ordered was OK, not great.

Close your eyes and walk in, you are transported directly to Ireland's pub district! This pub is everything you would hope for in a pub and more. The food was exceptional, the services was fast and fun but the atmosphere is the big winner. I will never stop in Minneapolis and miss a visit to The Local!

Trip Advisor directed us here. We are downtown concert regulars and this was our best pre-concert bites yet! Fish and chips with chicken shots... both delivered buoys, generous and filling. Special thanks to Alex for great service at the bar!

Visited the Local after a Vikings game. What a quaint and fun place. The atmosphere is very welcoming with lots of warm wood and glass. There are cozy enclosed booth areas that make for a quiet dining experience. The food was outstanding. I had a club sandwich with soup and it was all very fresh with high quality ingredients.

We have enjoyed the Local for many years - perhaps 2 decades - and it never disappoints. Always a fun time, always great food and spirits.

Every time we are looking for great fish and chips this is the place. It is quite noisy but the fish and chips make it worthwhile. Throw in a cold Stella and you have a great meal.While not a gourmet meal it is very good.

This authentic Irish pub has all the genuine wood and decor from Ireland. I was just here 2 days ago for a delicious brunch buffet( very affordable). I recently went to Ireland in September and never found a wonderfully dressed place like this. The waite staff is efficient and friendly. Food is very Irish And delicious.

Thank Janet O
