I love this restaurant. It has some great classic bar foods, but also some other great American dinner cuisine.

Prices are very reasonable, portions are great, and they have drink specials! Oh, and the staff is really friendly and professional. Highly recommend.

We went on a Friday evening a little late and they were sold out of fish. However we both had a different salad with grilled chicken and both dishes were great. The grilled chicken was delicious, tender, moist and tasty. The service was spot on. We will return.

We were so excited to try this place. We kept seeing the menu on FB. When we got there- 3 of the popular bowls were sold out. When we got the waffles they didn’t come with the caramel syrup and they were rock hard. The waitress was very nice. The food looked so promising on FB but unfortunately was not in person

Three of us chose the Friday Fish Fry, and were very pleased; one selected the Lemon Pepper Broiled Fish and was not, as the broiled fish was very dry. The sides were all tasty, especially the uniquely shaped French Fries. The dinners were served very attractively on individual trays, with the very nice plastic silverware wrapped in a napkin. The tables were all nicely spaced to allow for ample social distancing, and masks were required until we were seated at our table. All the staff were also masked. The other menu items looked very interesting and we will likely return to sample them.

Thank you for sharing. We are sorry one of your guest did not like their broiled fish. Did they let the server know they were not happy with it so they could get something else they would enjoy? I hope you will be back to give us another try.

Went with friends on sunny evening. Patio was very nice.
Service was average. Food was below average.
Had salmon- was dry and flavorless. Came on bed of dry arugula with 3 slivers of red pepper , tiny crumb of goat cheese and 6 drops of balsamic...
got 3 appetizers- stuffed peppers and beef on week wontons were good. Order of chips and salsa came with about 10 chips and tiny cup of salsa for $7.00!
Probably will not go back.

Local Grille at the Dome has become our favorite “go to” place for date nights, family dinners, and getting together with friends.

From the parking lot, you would never expect what you will find once you walk through the doors. The best word I can come up with to describe the feel of the restaurant is “comfortable”. The staff is friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable. The menu has some “old favorite” staples and some really unique and fun offerings as well. (You MUST try the Beef on Weck Eggrolls!!! Wow!!!). Highlights that we have enjoyed are the Almond Chicken Strips, Beef and Broccoli, Fish Fry, and a Pork Tenderloin special that was AMAZING!!!

The owner, Kim, stopped by our table during our meal and was very interested in making sure our experience was excellent.

On the way out, we visited the “inside”bar (there is a second bar in the actual golf dome), which overlooks the driving range inside the dome. The bar seems to be well-stocked and the friendly bartenders should be able to come up with something to satisfy pretty much anybody, whether you’re looking for a beer on tap or a fancy Cosmopolitan.

We will definitely be returning to the Local Grill to enjoy the fantastic food and the comfortable atmosphere!

Very average food which costs a little more than other restaurants in the area who have better food. Undercooked burger, fish fry was on the smaller side and bland, wings were good. Besides wings, a fish fry is something you just have to nail as a restaurant in this area especially when yours is $4-$5 more than the average. Upcharge for the black & blue wings is not worth it. Probably won't eat there again unless it's just for wings & a drink after hitting a bucket in the dome.

Hi William, This is very disappointing to read. I am very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your visit with us. Were any of these issues brought to the servers attention so that they could be addressed the day of your visit? We do serve a 12 oz fish fry and they should all be the same size? I will follow up with a call to try and get a little more information about your visit with us on Friday October 11th.
