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.

They take the normal and kick it up a step or two. Not what you would expect in downtown Lville more like 5 points or midtown. Only complaint is too small you need to be able to eat outside so go when weather is good unless you like loud

Came in with family and sat outside. The atmosphere of this restaurant was great as was the menu. Our server who for some reason I can't remember her name (brown hair with blue underneath) was absolutely wonderful. The food was ok. We got appetizers of chicken livers and pimento cheese. The livers needed some seasoning too them and the pimento... More

I really loved the atmosphere here and what this place is trying to accomplish. My party had the zucchini fritter and the pimento cheese for an appetizer and we really enjoyed those. Everyone seemed to really love their entree, except me. I ordered the shrimp and grits. I love shrimp and grits as a southern girl and I eat them... More

Stopped here for lunch due to the reviews and was not disappointed with the food. They took our order quickly and the food was out in a reasonable amount of time. Very happy with our meals. Only reason I am not giving 5 stars is our waiter (who was very nice) disappeared for a time and it took us about... More
