Food is good... beer is good, but it is not a beer bar. The waitress we dealt with had absolutely no knowledge of the beers we were asking about, and quite literally made up an answer. It was a bit off putting, despite reasonable costs on decent beer.

A bit off Broadway but a wonderful neighborhood bar type atmosphere with a friendly clientele and not too much of anything. Visually pleasing with well done woodwork. The beer selection is not huge, but it was varied enough for me to have a couple new brews, and we did enjoy our meals.......revisited two years later and more impressed, especially after a disastrous time at a town brewpub. Glad we knew it was there from a previous visit, it saved the evening....Backwoods Bastard on tap? It was needed.

I love The Local, but Iím not sure Iíd go as far as to call it a "beer bar" like some of the listings Iíve read. The food is great, as is the service, but it does get incredibly busy in there (probably because of the food and the beer). About 8 taps, usually 6 filled with craft beers, 1 dedicated to Guinness (and they pour a nice pint). Craft beer in bottle offerings look to be nice, but I usually get a Guinness while Iím there, as I go there for the food, not the beer.

Great spot in Saratoga Springs out of the main tourist area of Broadway. Not a huge selection of craft beers, but always a new and interesting selection. My favorite in the area.
