It really does not matter how many times we come here, whether we eat off the regular menu or try one of the daily specials, we have never been disappointed with the quality and consistency. This time it was Taco Tuesday special for me and the bangers and mash for my wife. She passed the comment that the bangers (English... More

We came for brunch on a Sunday and the place was packed. No wonder, the food was delicious and the service excellent.

This place had a really casual atmosphere and was very busy on a Friday night in October. We sat at the bar and ordered drinks, appetizers and dinner. Everything was amazing. We got a tater tot appetizer that was nothing that you would imagine, homemade giant tots covered in cheese and served with a mushroom gravy. I got the short... More

In some respects the sign of a good place with good food is that there is a wait to get a table. We have been here several times and have not had to wait before. We had to wait about 25 minutes and there was no room at the bar, but we did manage to get a drink while we... More

Love this neighborhood gem. I was visiting Saratoga Springs for a yoga training seminar. Stopped by The Local for dinner one night. Lovely spot. Felt right at home. Enjoyed some wine, the hummus plate and some friendly conversation with the patrons and bar tenders. I will definitely stop by next time I'm in town.

The Local is perfect for a gloomy afternoon or evening when you are craving pub fare. This place serves consistently good food and is comfortably cozy. The poutine fries are amazing and now you can substitute shredded cheddar on your fries instead of cheese curds, so in my mind they got even better! They serve the best burger in Saratoga.... More

We were tired of pricey so-so food and decided to try The Local. It is off the beaten path, tough parking( on the street) but it was so worth it! A hidden gem. Great food, great choices, reasonable prices! Friendly staff. Frequented by the locals- family & friends. We had the chicken appetizer- great! The Dublin Chicken was delicious, with... More

The pub is located in a residential neighborhood about four blocks west of Broadway. We went for lunch and found the place filling up quickly after 12 noon. Service was very friendly despite the crowds and the food was very good. We had shepherds pie, fish and chips, bangers and mash and a salmon burger. Recommend all of them. Prices... More
