Enjoy nicely cooked fried catfish, fried oysters and gnocchi that are offered at this restaurant. Ordering good bread pudding, ice cream and brioche toasts is what a number of clients recommend. The wine list is extensive, every guest will find something that suits their taste. Great chocolate frappe, tea or lemonade are among the most popular drinks at Local Roots.

I absolutely love this place! The food is always delicious and made to order with locally farmed ingredients. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the staff are always friendly and I've never had bad service. The menu is very inclusive and has something for everyone. And I also love that the menu changes frequently, keeping things fresh and new every time we go.

Delicious stop on my road trip. Oysters and special cold zucchini soup were amazing. I would definitely return.

I would give Local Roots a zero if possible. I have no idea how the food was because we never ordered. But I will say I have never been treated more rudely by the staff for trying to be seated for lunch on a Saturday. We entered a sparsely occupied restaurant at 11:30am, no indication that we needed reservations on a Saturday morning! We were abruptly told told that they were booked through lunch and only those with reservations were allowed in. It was clear that others were there, and no one else waiting to enter. The manager rudely escorted us out and we stood there stunned. We looked at our attire to make sure we were not underdressed or some other undesired  appearance would illicit that response. We were dressed as everyone that was there amount the half empty restaurant. No worries for a return visit no matter how good the food is. Too bad your establishment is not customer centric.
