I'd received a critique of Local Three which heralded this restaurant as one of Atlanta's best brunch havens. Don't you believe it! The food was mediocre at best. In fairness, there was a Shrimp Salad that could have been outstanding if served ice cold. The quiche was passable. There was a Rock Fish that could have been delicious if it hadn't been over-cooked. Same for a brisket that was also greasy. The coffee was bitter and cold.

We went for Father's Day. It was busy. We were told the price of the buffet was a bit higher because of the observance and a few more dishes had been added. At a $40 price point, I expect better quality. The service was good. However, I hardly touched my plate and thought he would ask if something was wrong. We were given our bill, paid it with a decent tip and left. It's doubtful we'll return.

We went for our Anniversary and had a wonderful meal with excellent service. We enjoyed our evening but suggest a different play list of music. Prices are high but food and service were excellent.

We were there for national bourbon day, and really enjoyed ourselves. Even with the restaurant full, our sever was very attentive. Our drinks were excellent, both neat pours and cocktails. We enjoyed the charcuterie board, but we would have liked something to lighten up the board a bit (some fruit or something). Though we did not order an actual entree, each plate that passed looked and smelled amazing. We’ll be back for dinner soon!

Got there 45 min early to have a drink at the bar. Took 30 min to get a drink. Then had to wait 20 min past our reservation time for a table. Food is over priced and nothing special at all. Burger is okay but not worth the ordeal. All around poor experience

We’ve been to Local Three many times before but going on Sunday was definitely not our best experience. 1st off, it was apparently bbq pop up night which they do every Sunday now. We were not fans, food was very bland compared to their regular dinner choices. Also I don’t know if they were understaffed or what but service was the worst we’ve ever seen. I think every person working that night ended up serving us at some point. Manager took our order for apps and mains. It seemed very disfuncional that evening. We’ve enjoyed them on many other occasions and we’ll be back but this time was not great

There are so many choices in Atlanta, that while this is an interesting and somewhat unique restaurant, I am not "blown away". The entree servings were pretty small. The wine pour was on the lower end of
barely acceptable. I have previously been there a few times, and finally decided I would skip dessert, as the portions are just not enough for me or my wife. The noise here is borderline too much, as we do enjoy a pleasant conversation at the table and it is , at times challenging with the noise level.

In a lot of ways I like this place-- good decor, location, easy parking, friendly staff and for the most part
good food. But the above issues make this a compromise for us, and unfortunately we are losing our enthusiasm over dining here.

I've been to Local Three many times and this was the first time I was displeased with the experience. I loved my appetizer of morels. It was delightful. But the service was quite slow. Our server was sweet and very helpful but it took over 40 minutes for our entrees to be brought to the table. The salad I ordered was overly rich with a heavy cream sauce and my entree, GA Trout, was extremely salty. I just couldn't finish it. I would go back again as I've had excellent experiences here in the past but if I got another experience like this I would not go back again. I know they were taking care of a very large party that night but not having everything buttoned up is poor planning and execution on their part.

I discovered Local Three on a visit to Atlanta a few months ago and made it a priority to return on my next visit to the city. My wife and I absolutely love this place. I had a chicken entree that was so good it has ruined all other chicken in the world for me. The service is top notch and they admittedly won major points with my family with the rotating themed cocktail menu. On our first visit it was Harry Potter, which thrilled my wife, and on this trip it was Game of Thrones... I went with King of the North and my wife had a Red Woman. Desserts were incredible as well. Local Three may be my favorite restaurant in the country right now... Without a doubt my favorite on the east coast.

We went to Local Three to celebrate a birthday, and it was a wonderful experience! Since it was a Sunday, they were offering the Sunday BBQ supper, which was an amazing deal for an entree with 2 sides. We got the meatloaf, which was excellent, and the cornmeal crusted catfish with homemade hot sauce, which was the lightest and most flavorful catfish I’ve ever had. The service was friendly and very attentive, and their whiskey selection was impressive. They even had High West’s Midwinter’s Night Dram, which is a seasonal whiskey with limited availability (and my favorite!). It was overall an enjoyable experience, and we will definitely go back!

I was traveling with work and attended a dinner at Local3. My coworkers are big fans of this place, and I can see why. I have to admit, the service was fantastic. The gentlemen waiting on our table checked in on us at all of the right times, but also gave us space for our meeting. He made solid recommendations and truly was a fan of his own restaurant. The food was really good; you must try the truffle popcorn. I love beets and enjoyed the poke. Nice outdoor patio too. I wish I had a Local3 near me!
