The Local is one of our favorite places to stop in downtown Minneapolis. The food is excellent and they have a good beer menu. The service is outstanding and the atmosphere is unique and comfortable. The overall value is good for downtown. It's also a fun place to watch Saturday morning Premier league matches.

The bloody was good and spicy with a Finnegans Amber. Bison burger with a side salad for lunch! Delicious!

In Minneapolis on business and looked to TripAdvisor for a place to enjoy an inexpensive dinner close to our hotel. The Local had a great selection on the menu and nice cold beer on tap. The three of us really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Definitely would return and highly recommend If staying in the area

Traditional Irish Pub in food and drink. I enjoyed the 20 oz Guinness perfect pours and Shepherd's Pie more than once. The fish and chips are classic and they make a very nice Reuben. Outstanding selection of whiskey.

Great lunch with a group. We were at a convention, logically the lunch time crush was intense. The closer Pub was slammed 45 minute wait. This one is literally 1 block away and had no wait. The service was excellent and there is a special $9.99 lunch special. Happy Hour also starts at 2pm if you are interested. We were... More

It can get a bit obnoxious with the youngsters at happy hour but it's a beautiful bar to just go look at if nothing else. The food is good most of the time, once in a while it seems to slip but over all it's a great place to take family and friends if they like to be surrounded by... More

Happy hour whiskeys: heaven. That Steak & Mushroom Pie (with masher crust): heavenly! (Had it on both visits...) Ambience: homey, comfortable.

I took my daughter here for dinner after a day of shopping. What a great place! The atmosphere was so fun. We were seated in a little area that had 3 half walls- there are lots of little unique areas and alcoves to eat in. The food was fantastic! I had a Reuben sandwich with fries and loved it all!...

The place was packed (obviously it would for such a great place) but we found a place at the bar in a little nook area just for two. The pouting was delicious and the beers were tasty. The small secret rooms on the side were a cute fun touch. Would go back for sure.
