Delicious food, friendly service, and a nice outdoor patio in a quiet part of town. What's not to love?

Nestled in a neighborhood street. Tight street, parking an issue with snow piles. Very attentive and friendty staff. Authentic Greek appetizers and entrees tasted great - indicative of a chef who gets it. Very broad selection covering all tastes. Tables well spaced. Comfortable neighborhood style environment. Will certainly return.

Having been to Greece 10 times in the last 20 years I was really trying yo root for this place. This was my second visit. My first was in cold weather and my second in very cold weather (mid January) and both times we had many many large flying gnats surrounding our food and bodies. This is unacceptable, the place needs to be fumigated. If I was the owner I would be worried about customers not coming back. I’m pretty sure I will not be back anytime soon. That being said the service was above average and the food comes out fast. The Saganaki (fried cheese) was excellent. The spinach pie was not great. The chicken souvlaki was warm not piping hot., disappointed a little bit. The greek potato fries were not good, did not taste fresh. The prices are on the expensive side so Zi expected better FRESH food. And ZERO gnats.

We really enjoy dining at The Local Greek. My daughter always gets the grilled octopus. Their meat platter is so tasty and huge, great for sharing. I enjoyed the moussaka last night. Everything is always so tasty and fresh, and the staff and owner are super friendly. Always a pleasure, one of our regular go-tos!

I am so glad I trust my guy and went to Local Greek. It was exactly what I was looking for. Authentic Greek food with flavor and great service. We enjoyed the hummus and pita, potato cakes and tzaziki (yum) and the Mitsos (OMGggggg). Never have I ever had more tender lamb and the figs and apricots took it to another level. I only regret not leaving enough room for dessert. A must on anyone’s list. I will be back for sure.

Great food, incredibly friendly and service oriented staff.
The appetizer with spicy feta and all the entrées were excellent- try the stew! What a marvelously tasty dish.
Also try any the desserts - OMG they are sinfully delicious.
All at a reasonable price. What could be more enjoyable.
