We sat at the bar on a Friday night. The bar staff was super attentive and friendly. The food was good.

Couples weekend & decided to have a few drinks/appetizers for a second day at The Local. We were seated in the patio area, enjoying ourselves for well over an hour, when one of the female managers approached our table to inform us that we had to move from our table within 20 minutes because they had given our table to someone who had reservations. We agreed to “move” to the bar area, where we sat for over 20 minutes, with 2 bartenders and only 4 other people at the bar besides us. We were NEVER waited on, so we decided to go somewhere else. I have never in my life been asked to move from a table where I was sitting and spending money for “someone else” who had a reservation. Had this not happened we would’ve been having our dinner there that night as well, not to mention we would’ve definitely been a repeat customer for a third day, apparently customer service only pertains to certain people, if and when we’re ever in Boone again, they will not get our business, it was like a slap in the face, ridiculous!

Went here early around 5:30 on a Saturday and we were seated immediately. Ordered southern pickle spears for our app and they were so delicious dipped in the Chipotle sauce. For our entrees being our first time we wanted to try the wood fire pizzas. My daughter got the Uber Meat and was loaded with bacon, pepperoni, steak, sausage, pulled pork and topped off with garlic. Mine was an apple, blue and bacon flat bread topped with garlic and red onion. Both of were absolutely out of this world! The vibe in this place is very Boone...laid back, band playing, and tons of locals. Great service and parking across the street. I hear this place gets packed later in the evening so If you don't want to wait go early. We would definitely return.

Very small portions for the price, even for the bar drinks. The food was decent as far as flavor. Hubby had the Cheesesteak sandwich and I ordered the Fig, Goat Cheese & Chicken sandwich. His was much better than mine, but it was just a very small portion. My sandwich just didn’t deliver on the hype at all lol.
