Ordered my burger plain and came out wrong. We were nothing but nice to the waitress and she was rude about it. Terrible

It is a casual environment, tavern with a kitchen. Lots of regulars but you don't feel unwelcome by anyone. The food is AMAZING and a nice variety.

We were in the neighborhood and thought we would try The Local Tavern for lunch on an early Saturday afternoon. There is a decent-sized parking lot in front. The interior is pretty big. There is a large bar with plenty of TVs. Because we were...there on St. Patrick's Day weekend, the bar was definitely decorated for St. Patrick's Day, even with green beer. The Local Tavern was recently renovated with its name change and it does certainly have a local patron feel to it. There are plenty of seats at the bar, as well as regular & high-top tables. Ania B. was our server and brought us menus and took our drink order. The menu is a little American, a little Mexican, a little Polish and yes, especially due to the weekend - a bit of Irish. We ordered the cabbage roll entree which came with two large Gołąbki and mashed potatoes with red gravy. We also ordered the Polish plate which came with one Gołąbki, one good-sized Polish sausage, three pierogi and sauerkraut, though we did substitute a cucumber dill salad for the sauerkraut. Everything was very hot and quite tasty. The portions were large and we did take some home for another two meals. Ania B. was personable, attentive and efficient. So, the only issue, was that the service out of the kitchen was slower than we expected. We were in no hurry, today, but had we been, it might have been a problem. I'm sure that we'll be back - the Polish food was that good!More
