Local 22 Kitchen and Bar Ratings and Reviews

This was my first time dining at Local 22 and was thoroughly impressed. The food, from sides to main course, was excellent. My guests also thoroughly enjoyed their meals as well. One had fish (tuna) and one had a burger. The wait staff was excellent too. The only minor drawback is that It can get a bit loud but it is not overly noisy. I would recommend it for a range of occasions including business dinner or just a casual family night out.

This was our first visit to Local 22, and we will be back! The braised beef short rib was amazing! Our server was knowledgeable, gracious, and attentive, and the manager offered expert advice on the beer menu. We felt very welcome and well cared-for.

This place is great!! A friend was in town and we decided on Local 22. We were at the restaurant for a while chatting and the manager let us try some dessert for free!!! It was amazing and I will definitely be coming back for more!

NYE "anti-NYE" said champagne every hour. Asked about that after the hour and was told she could get us some. Next hour, none was offered. Nothing special. Lamb was raw had to be sent back and cooked, nothing said about that. Service was good . A disappointment over all, but not terrible.

We went for an early first night dinner. Chicken was undercooked and pork chop over cooked. When told about the chicken the waitress was dismissive. Same Justin Biber's repertoire was played over and over for our entire dinner. That and the chicken were the worst. I couldn't eat.

We were a party of 6 for lunch on the day before Christmas. The restaurant seemed understaffed considering the rush. The service was slow.
Besides that, the food was excellent and the beer selection was nice too.
Will go again.

The menu was unique and the food was very good. The service was wonderful and since we were having fun visiting the waiter did not hover, which was nice. I would definitely go back and highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

So glad we happened to find this restaurant. The local ingredients were highlighted. The craft cocktail known as Hulk Smash was awesome, as were the veggies (can be shared family style) and the mason jar desserts!

We were looking for a comfortable environment with a local flair. We were thrilled with the result! Visiting from out of town, we had no idea what to expect. Local friends were pleased we found this gem.
The food was generous and delicious. A seared tuna special was wonderful, my wife enjoyed the steak and the sides were delicious and plentiful.
Can't wait to find a reason to get back to Durham and enjoy this place, again!

We had family in town and decided to try a new spot for lunch. We ordered the beet salad, the gouda burger, french fries, and a flatbread pizza. We agreed the pizza was the best...nice crisp crust, and great flavor. We sat outside on the patio...lovely sunshine. Our server was okay...answered questions but didn't offer any other helpful comments. We even had to ask about the specials. Maybe she was having an off day. Lunch was good, but not sure I'd come back. There are so many options in the area!

Delicious fish, cleverly prepared. Blistered green beans made a yummy appetizer for two. Banana pudding made like mom wished she could! The only negative is the banquette seating. Too soft to use for some of the tables. My chin was nearly on the table when I sat down.

We had been here once before just for a drink outside and ended up sharing the kale salad. We were pleasantly surprised and excited to try it again for dinner. We shared the kale salad again, and I ordered the burger that was on special. Unfortunately neither were very good. The salad was soggy, and the burger was overcooked and lacked any sort of real flavor. It was disappointing. Not sure if we will be back.

The local fare here never disappoints! During this visit I was very pleasantly surprised in particular when I asked if they could make the macaroni and cheese with salami without salami and the waiter not only immediately said "absolutely" but then also started suggesting veggies to add if I would be interested in supplementing it with anything else. The result was wonderful!

Food was very good. Lots of vegetarian choices. Nice varied menu. The consensus at our table was that we would definitely be back! The service was average. I noticed that our waitress gave a little more attention to some of the other tables around us. But, it was still decent service.

I'm sorry, but it wasn't that memorable of an experience. The food was ok, the service was ok and the restaurant was very noisy. I had been here before for drinks and had a good time. I dunno what changed, but not good!

Good food and service at Local 22. Very interesting, locally sourced menu options. Their sides are awesome, we really like the potato cake and the Brussels sprouts. Always interesting specials. Waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. Only area for improvement was rareness options for their burgers. It was presented to us as "medium or well done". Two of us ordered medium but the burgers came out well rare of that. I would think an experienced kitchen could do something in between.
Very nice bistro setting. The entrees ...
Very nice bistro setting. The entrees were good but the real stars were the vegetables. We had two of the side items - brussel sprouts and giant beans. Both were delicious and highly recommended. Was also impressed with the cocktail - did not try the many beers available on this visit.
