The atmosphere is great. Food and Beverage is nicely priced and well executed. I do believe the menu needs work on the entree section.More

What a disappointment. The shrimp dish claimed 15 shrimp. There were seven. We ordered carrots for a side dish. They were stale, raw bagged baby carrots. There was no cheese on the salad. The ordering experience lacked professionalism. There are lots of local restaurant choices....It is doubtful we will pick this one again.More

I'm a fairly frequent curbside customer of Local Roots and figured it's high time I write a review. This last visit I had the Butternut Squash and Risotto that came with a delightful coconutty sauce. Very tasty, very flavorful. I most often get the local...burger with wings and zucchini fries. LOVE their zucchini fries - crispy on the outside, soft and delightful on the inside! Can't really go wrong with the menu - maybe not a huge fan of the potato chips. My food usually comes out pretty quickly once I arrive for curbside pickup. Of the many times I've been there, there has only been maybe a couple of issues where my food took a little longer to come out. Both their food and their service is for the most part outstanding. I love Local Roots!More

Don and I just moved to Powell and did not have time to plan for our 5th anniversary and went online to find a local place to go out to lunch. We got the Nirvana Vegetarian pizza and a cocktail. The two of us usually...finish off one pizza but we had to take leftovers home with us because it was so loaded! We added one piece of maple cheese cake to share. Loved the meal and the waitress. Very friendly and checked on us just often enough. Will definitely go back again!More

First and last time visitor. We were told our waitress was in training - this was fine. However, after getting our drinks we were never offered a refill. The waitress also never returned to our table to see how the food was or to see...if we needed anything else until she came to take the plates. The Turkey, bacon, avocado sandwich was rather tasteless and the bottom slice of break was wet and very soggy. It seemed as if the juice from the pickle was poured on the plate. The chips, that I expected to be fresh, were stale.More

@localroots locally sourced as a mission statement. The menu had so many choices. Started with what might have been the best #hummus I might have ever had. Chipotle-Honey Hummus w/Carrots · Celery · Pita. Wow #bestbite followed by the *Loaded Local Burger Bacon-Onion Jam ·...Goat Cheese · Fried Onions · Lettuce · Tomato · Toasted Brioche Bun Really great ( a little heavy handed on Goat Cheese - fixed with a quick scrape) - still some nice flavor. And the Homemade Apple Sauce was a shining star.... Second entree.... *Seared Salmon Roasted Beets · Baby Kale · Roasted Sweet Corn · Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette. The maple balsamic took on a pink/purple tone and was so flavorful there was no need for lemon...always save run for dessert... Chocolate Chip Cookie a la Mode - monstrous....warm and amazing. And the server's favorite Peanut Butter Pie.. the menu was so good I will have to go back to try the wings and blackened shrimp....More

A friend recommended local roots and we were not disappointed. Our server was excellent and our food came out very quickly. Quality farm to table food with moderate prices. Loved the butternut squash soup, sweet with a little bit of bacon flavor. Also had spinach...salad with tender grilled chicken, citrus dressing that was homemade. Large portion of lobster Mac &Cheese also very tasty. Be sure to save room for dessert because the peanut butter pie and carrot cake were both outstanding.More

We were happy to move to Powell if only to have the option of going to Local Roots to either eat there or get take-out. It is always crowded, filled with a variety of people. It is our go-to restaurant when people come into town...to visit. Everyone has been impressed when they have gone. We have thoroughly enjoyed the salads (filled with locally grown lettuce and veggies), the gluten free pizza (the carnivore is outstanding) and some of the sandwiches. We love the zucchini straws as appetizers too. On occasion, it has been really loud and sometimes difficult to talk with large parties. Service has mostly been good, and their patio is nice as well. They update the menu frequently since they strive for locally sourced foods, and sometimes I am disappointed when a favorite is taken off of the choices.More
