“Cozy and kind of great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

I lived in Boston for awhile - Irish pubs were plentiful to say the least...and not my favorite. So I wasn't especially excited to go to the Local. But I should have been! It's somehow modern, sunlit, and cozy at the same time -- lots of different rooms and areas including a good amount of outdoor seating. Great menu, too - and lots of vegetarian options. I ended up settling on the veggie burger, which ended up being delicious. The only downside is that it took quite awhile to get our meals and that our server wasn't able to recommend any veggie favorites, but I'd definitely visit again.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

The atmosphere on the inside is something special. It seems to be a historic building that is very well maintained. They have a good selection of craft and local beers. The Irish and American cuisine is very good. They promote 2 Gingers Whiskey and I'm not sure why. It is not a top shelf whiskey in my opinion. Excellent service. Outdoor patio. Be sure to stop at The Local if you are in downtown Minneapolis.

“Hot spot for HH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Can't beat the location downtown for this pub. Lots of outdoor seating and inside is huge. I think the happy hour deals for food and drink is really reasonable. I recommend the Skinny Ginger.

“This is a nice pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Good selection of imported and craft brews. Nice food selection which is prepared properly. The walleye fish and chips are a winner as is the pot roast. The local has become a regular stop for me when in downtown Minneapolis. A winner for sure.

“Good food and Beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

stopped by late afternoon for beer and appetizers during Happy Hour. This restaurant is located in Nicollet Mall. An attractive pedestrian open mall with restaurant on both sides. Almost all restaurants have outdoor seating. Perhaps because of Happy Hour the place was packed with young students and locals. They have a good selection of beer on tap and the appetizers, we had fish sliders and quinoa salad, were very tasty.
