This popular local place is well named. I really like their steaks, but there are lots of good things here. The salads are good, and there are lots of good sandwiches.

Love their soups and sandwiches! They have great salads too, they are a little pricey but they are also very filling. Don't skip out on the cookies while you're there!

Whether you want a salad or a very good burger this is the place! Very tasty, and would return next time I'm in the area.

The Local is sort of the hip happenin' place in Lake Jackson at lunch time. But, after you go a few times, you'll tire of the never changing menu. Especially for vegetarians, there are like 2-3 options of any interest. And not even that exciting. After you've had the wrap a few times, you hope nobody asks to meet you... More

It was great, my only complaint is the prices are a bit high. Very beautiful desserts. Great for a business lunch, classy place!

We were in town to visit family and after battling a cold for two days, we decided to try The Local. We went there originally because they had a fresh soup, but the only one that they had the day we were there was one that we did not really want. What did attract our attention was the daily special... More

My wife and I have eaten here several times for the lunch and it is always exceptional. The food is fresh and tasty. My wife loves their salads because of the freshness. I got the daily lunch special and it was very good. We ate outside under the pergola and had a wonderful time.

This was my first visit to The Local - met friends for a relaxing lunch. The atmosphere is very nice and relaxed and the restaurant is very clean. However, as a vegan I was disappointed in their lack of vegan options… There are some vegetarian options on the menu and you can remove the cheese from them to make them... More

Place looks pricey but it's not. Very reasonable. I had a sandwich with great flavor and right amount of food. Friendly staff and quick service. Tucked away in town but well worth finding
