We made reservations and enjoyed a nice seat for 2. The table was small and close to others but the atmosphere was comfortable so we didn't feel crowded or that we couldn't carry on a conversation. The fresh ingredients and smaller portions size really make this meal about quality over quantity. My husband and I left here raving to anyone... More

It's rare that I give restaurants five-star ratings, so often do they not live up to expectations. I could say a lot of things but none more meaningful than my wife and I had the kind of meal that we hope that we provide at our own restaurant. This was the best meal that I have had in 2017 that...

One of our favorite local restaurants. The blackened drum was just right. Grits cooked to perfect consistency. Desserts not too sweet, yet tasty. Service was friendly, efficient, and very professional.

My suggestion is talk to the the staff try something new and enjoy the experience. Combining the seasonal food selection with the bartender suggesting a great wine paring and my wife and I had a wonder evening.

If fresh, local, downright tasty food lights your fire, look no farther than Local Roots. Dining there on a Sunday night, the selections were limited to a prix fixe menu of wonderfully fresh salad and a choice of a butternut squash fish stew, brisket and a vegetarian selection, each with a choice of sides. All at our table loved their... More

From the moment you enter Local Roots, you know you are going to have a good time. The vibe is so positive! The food was sensational, the drinks were imaginative, the waitstaff was pleasant and welcoming, and I could eat the corn bread every day!

We've been to Local Roots numerous times and it's always delicious. The food options are new spins on old favorites. Everything is sourced locally. It's nice to know restaurants care about where the food comes from. The Ancient White Park Burger is amazing - who says you can't have burgers for brunch? Local Roots encourages it. The shrimp & grits... More
