Great daily offerings. Had the farm, and others had Berger, and the fish. Gear service and we started with a flight of local beer tasting. Nice to split with another. The mains we're prepared very tasty. Ribs, pork, and fish were tasty. Also great local...More

My daughter and I tried Local 22 for lunch last week. The staff was friendly and quick to serve. Some of our lunch items (thai peanut hot wings, "burnt" brussel sprouts) didn't have a lot of flavor. The tarragon lemon fingerling potatoes had LOTS of...More

Had really good dinner at Local 22. Pinot Grigio and lemon drop martini were both good. Salads very fresh and delicious as were calamari and grouper. Service friendly and excellent.

Hey, glad you thought the food was delish! Our prices are comparable to area restaurants, while there's the added bonus of supporting local, eating fresh NC products. We hope to see you again soon, cheers!

You can't go wrong with the menu - there are several vegetarian options that are great. The mushroom pizza and burnt brussel sprouts were quite good. Despite being in a bit of an odd location (corporate offices) the outdoor seating doesn't feel like it.

This is an option for those nights when you want to eat something well cooked and presented without many complexities. The local burger is an excellent choice.

I had the Angus beef burger and it was quite delicious. The rest of the party had other dishes. The pizza apparently was not up to par; so if you want excellent pizza, Toro might be the better place. Cocktails were generous, even though we...More
