We love to come here for brunch on the weekends. We hadn’t been through in a while. Most of the waitstaff are new from what I could see. It started out going south straight from the start. We got seated and a noticed over my wife’s shoulder two of the waitstaff chatting away with each other for a few minutes. Come to find out one of them was our waitress. We were right in front of them and she saw us get seated. Why she wouldn’t come great us right away was beyond me. From there on out her service was very slow. This is the first time this has ever happens. I could go on but I won’t

Chris, Todd and Ryan never disappoint! Great spot for a drink, date or hooking up with friends.

Great drinks by professional bartenders who know and have perfected their craft.

Small sharing plates that are imaginative and typically have a southern spin!

Entrees change quite often and are always worth a try.

Way too loud for an intimate occasion. The sound carried and tables are tight. My wife’ s meal (chicken pot pie) was bland and need additional salt. My scallops were good but were way overpriced at $35 , when basically it was 4 scallops and a salad. Dessert for both of us was non- memorable. I had the Nutella Banana Panini. Something I could easily have made at home with a jar of Nutella, a banana and a waffle. The bright spot was the server who was attentive and courteous.

All you can eat brunch with a buffet style line that goes through the kitchen. Great food and service was awesome.

The women's bathroom was trashed. Had to step over the wall mounted trash can that had obviously fallen off the wall and the bathroom was obviously not well maintained. Only complaint of the outing.

We were promptly seated for our 1:45pm reservation. Very good service and ambiance for my husband, 12 year old daughter and me. On the other hand we were very disappointed in the brunch buffet food options for the price. The buffet was loaded with carbs and not at all enough protein or veggies. So a lot of breads, pasta, rice and cheese going on. The only veggie was a salad of which my daughter would not eat so she was left with no veggie to accompany her meal. Meats were bacon and a ham and cheese sandwich.

Service was slow and inattentive, the food is ok but not a good value. Oysters were the smallest I have ever been served, and $3 a pop. Nowhere near the quality I was expecting.

Outstanding! Fantastic service and food! We went to finally try their famous bufffet and were surprised that you pick up your food in the kitchen. That is awesome! It feels like you are an intimate special guest of theirs who is invited to the kitchen. I loved it! And you can chat with the cooks who are preparing the foods. Highly recommend this restaurant for dinner, lunch, happy hour and specially brunch!

LOVED IT! I had heard about Local Three and of course being a FOODIE it was a MUST. It is such a cool place but their unique take on the buffet for BRUNCH was amazing. We loved everything. The french toast, shrimp and grits and the pulled pork with THAT COLE SLAW was TOPS!!! Those POTATOES👏🏾
Definitely on my REGULAR list❤️❤️

I really believe Local Three was on top of the pile as a destination location. It has slipped dramatically, last Friday night a group of four at 7:30pm dined and the Restaurant was empty. The food was adequate. I ordered a Chicken Pot Pie for~$26 and it was a pot filled with Chicken stew and some corn muffins on top.
Local Three you had better wake up! You have a lot of competition!!

Pros: food is delicious, the brunch is a wonderful experience. Wine and port selection is very nice.
Cons: very noisy, can barely hear your own party or the server unless they raise their voice. Tables are very close together, kind of a crammed in feel.

Food was decent, but not great. Service was just ok: nice waiter, but not really sure what he was doing. We got our apps at the same time as our entrees; when we asked why, he seemed surprised and said he didn't realize we wanted the appetizers first.

Food is way over priced and of fair quality ($45 for a 6 oz filet with a side of VERY bitter rocket greens...ugh), menu is weird (odd combination of choices and tastes) and service was poor (the server could not have been less interested or less helpful). The atmosphere is odd for anything but a mid-week business lunch; its in a high end office building, with mid-tier food, in a quiet part of town. This last part we we knew, but the rest of it we hoped had changed. Third time now — so shame on us at this point for thinking the experience would be different. Better to wait at Houston’s vs. reservation here...

I really wanted to like Local Three but it just seemed like a generic "hip" restaurant. The bourbon list was mostly sourced juice or stuff that is easy to find. The avocado toast was drenched in butter, overwhelming the flavor of the avocado and crab. The lobster roll was filled with chunks of what seemed to be langostino, a tub of mayo, and a handful of celery salt.

In the end, I wound up wishing they would have focused less on being cute with the movie references in the menu and more on preparing good food.

Love supporting this local restaurant. Be prepared for the noise level to impede conversation at times. That said, everyone is having a good time in this great place - the conversation is lively. The waitstaff is friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. My only feedback is there are not good options for someone who is a little more health conscious in their cuisine. This hasn't always been the case here. The chief was willing to leave a butter sauce off of the fish my associate ordered and substitute a salad for the succotash.

Service and ambience were fine, but my food was awful. I ordered the Angus Skirt Steak Asada, and the steak was tough and fatty and the rice and beans were dried up and clumpy. They brought the tortillas out in foil, but I’m not sure why, because they were not warm at all. I won’t be back.

While it is hard to find the restaurant in a highrise office park which is off the beaten path. The decor of the establishment is appealing. The Charcuterie and Fromage boards were spot on. Although, each were in need of additional accoutrements. Main course menu items were less creative than expected for such a marketed clientele. Service was good and the rather large and unexpected whiskey menu was a nice surprise to see. 7.5/10
