Creative menu...LOVED the lobster w waffle (though needed more waffle to avoid the embarrassment of plate licking ;) Bang Bang Shrimp and grilled salmon were delicious too! Will be back with the kids next time. Nice casual vibe.

We totally lucked out. I considered the lobster waffle but ordered the fish tacos and brussel sprouts. The waitress must have been reading my mind because the lobster waffle was put before me. We mentioned that I had ordered fish tacos so she put the order in but left the lobster waffle. We waited for her return to ask if... More

Great open beer bar with lots of craft and specialty beers also offering a local sampler. The cathedral ceiling overlooks the centrally located bar area surrounded by booths that will comfortably seat 4 people each. Service was great. We did not try the food (aside from the cheesecake which was pretty good).

I'm not a beer drinker, so I can't comment on it other than to say the options are bountiful and brewed all over the US. I can say the food is delicious, the space is very cool and inviting, and the service is pretty good. It fills up fast, so go on the early side if going for dinner. They... More

The kitchen turned out a high end burger with everything organic and the beer list is superb. The service is indifferent at best and slow to be honest. Fairfield is cursed with a lot of average food. Local kitchen stands out for its dedication to fine ingredients but the experience is ahrdly life altering.

Visited here with a group of 11 people. Sat upstairs in the balcony region. Delightful beer selecfion. We started with a few appetizers such as crispy Brussels Sprouts and the chicken wings. Both were out of this world. 11 smiling faces just from the appetizers. Next came our meal. I had the salmon and OH MY GOD was it the... More

Local is housed in an old brick building repurposed but maintained brick walls , beams and and an open feeling . We had the loft like upper floor for our gathering of 25. There is an extensive...

Fantastic Architecture, Below Average Staff. And just Ok/Good food. From the time we were greeted it was a lackluster start, no energy coming from this hostess at all. She then left the floor to check on something in the back, leaving me standing in the middle of the floor. Once we were seated One of my party mistakenly ordered an... More

It has been a while not seen a waitress explaining the beer menu, food menu and how great is the place. I was really impressed because you can see that the person like what it is doing. The food options she gave me were perfect and delicious. The beer was perfect with the tacos. It was really kind of her... More
