            The service was great- our waitress was very attentive and took care of our requests. We did experience a problem with mixing up the order for our burgers… one burger was requested medium and another well done and without a couple of add ins… and the two were mixed up so the person with the medium burger got the well done burger without some dressings and the person who ordered well done got a medium burger with everything on it. We sent it back and another came out- with essentially the same issues. We did. It send it back again- just decomposed the burger and ate around it. I would return for sure because the food was great and the service too. I would hope that the mix up only occurs occasionally!

            My family normally loves the local room but our experience for mothers day was awful. It felt like we were inconveniencing the waitress by being there, we got our drinks in Styrofoam cups, the food was mediocre. If we hadn't gone to the local room multiple times before & had a wonderful experience, we wouldn't go back.

            Overall, pretty good. I had the salmon with a loaded baked potato and caesar salad. Excellent. My wife gad the tomato soup and she said it was good. Carrot cake was good...very large! Our waitress was ok. Felt like she just didn't want to be there tonight. Been here a few times now, and it's a good place.

            Great find a little further out for some. Great food. Fried green tomatoes were a different twist, but man were they good. And the sweet potato cheesecake? Yes, you read correctly. PHENOMENAL. Nice aesthetics and very attentive service rounded out a really nice experience. Keep it up!!

            The service was great. The food was good but cold...not warm at all. All 3 of ours was cold! Didn't complain as I didn't want it microwaved. Not worth the amount we were charged. Will try another time. Note...it wasn't busy yet and we got our food fast so don't know why it was cold. Disappointed

            Wow! What a gem this place is. The food and service was great! The only thing I didn’t enjoy was being seated so close to the kitchen… the sound of clashing dishes and purple lighting from kitchen changed the ambiance a bit but other than that, loved our first visit there!

We had the sweet potato cheesecake which was to die for. We also tried the bacon wrapped scallops which i thought were tasty. The street corn was delicious, and my daughter enjoyed her hamburger-

            Never disappoints- great local place to meet up with family and friends. Welcoming staff - attentive without being obtrusive. Baked feta with pita points is a favorite and they can cook a burger to perfection. Paired with our favorite craft beer - great way to spend an afternoon. Just wish we had saved room for dessert!

            We dined at The Local Room on Wednesday - March 16 for our daughter's birthday. Our server "Red" was fantastic. He was attentive, friendly, sweet and professional, A+ service! Our food; house burger, strip-steak special and braised short rib tortellini were all very delicious. I had the house burger and it was fantastic, very well thought through flavors - excellent choice. My husband had the braised short rib tortellini and said that it was delicious. This is a half-way point between Charlotte and Pinehurst so we now have a great option when we want to meet halfway. The owner/manager also walked the dining room, making sure everyone was happy - so this is a well run establishment.

            We had no idea this existed in Locust-we are near Midland but saw it for Queen's Feast and had a great meal. We decided to visit again b/c the menu for QF was totally different. Everyone enjoyed their meals of Reg'l Burger, Chicken Panini-recommended by our waiter Alex and one pasta dish. The soups were good too. Fresh broccoli with 2 of our sides was excellent. And what's great is you can make a Reservation on The Local Room's Website or Open Table. We promptly were seated. Also, if you have a group of 10 the outdoor area looked great. Don't know how it would be in the summer but for 3/5/22 it looked appealing.

            The Local Room in Lovust, NC was really nice. The meal was delicious and we had leftovers as well. Awesome place to eat out and drink a little alky.

            Service was excellent, food had great taste and was cooked properly; however, everything arrived to table luke warm. They were busy, but had enough staff to prevent this, so likely serve delay happened in kitchen. Quality and value of food was excellent, except for the price of lobster tail addition. A 2-3oz tail, four small bites wasn’t worth $14.

            The waitress was nice but she did a lot of rushing us through. We wanted to order slowly and spend time visiting but she pushed for us to order entree as soon as we sat down. She also did not remove dirty plates from table at the end of our meal. We were celebrating a birthday and the honoree had to open gifts over dirty and crowded dishes.

            Great company in a great setting. Steak was one of the worst I have ever tasted. Made me ill all night. Second time out of 4 times frequenting this establishment that food was poor. Thank goodness the group we were with made up for it.
