Great place for an easy dinner. It's definitely a good idea to make reservations, even on a Sunday evening.
We shared a few appetizers and split a pizza and the food was great. The lamb pizza and cocktail were especially good. We would definitely go back for seconds!

My friends and I had the special pizza (bresaola white pie), the beet salad with chicken, the shrimp and grits and one of the hamburgers. All were very good. Our server was friendly and helpful. She answered all of our questions. There was a discrepancy between the cost of the special pizza on the menu board and the bill, but it was promptly addressed. We enjoyed our dinner here.

I had an amazing salad at this restaurant. The food was incredible. Unfortunately the take out service was sub par, I called to place a to go order and the hostess was rather rude and told me I had to place an order online. Which I did. When I came in my order was sitting on the counter and she casually pointed at it, the interaction was very cold. I got my to go food and she asked “do you need silverware?” This was an odd question to me because almost all people ordering takeout need utensils.. I said “yes” to which she pointed at silverware on the counter. The hospitality was just not there. But like I said the food was amazing!

I visit NC once a year or so and I love to eat. That being said, this place has a quality menu that is skillfully prepared. Had the lamb burger which i was able to substitute roasted Brussels instead of fries. I sat at the bar as per usual and the bartenders were friendly and ready to talk about the food, drinks, or whatever.
I highly recommend making a stop here!

Pretty cool concept. It's a bar/restaurant. I went on a weekend late morning and they were serving brunch. Everything was fresh and delicious. Coffee was not great but my friend had an iced latte and they shook it like a drink, it was fabulous. Limited parking around the area.

Really outstanding, I don't have a single negative thing to say other than I didn't feel cool or trendy enough to eat here at times. The cocktails were fantastic (Old fashioned, and pink gin and tonic were my favorite. The traveling Broadway gets better as you drink it). I had the bone in pork chop special with orange maple glaze, potatoes, and asparagus. Wonderful. My son had an excellent Caesar salad. The tater tots appetizer and corn bread were A+. Also the peach bread pudding dessert was quite good. I would go again.

Wow. Atmosphere 10/10. Food 10/10. Drinks 10/10. Service 12/10, that's right, TWELVE out of TEN. THIS PLACE IS SPECTACULAR. If you're reading reviews right now to decide if you should go to Local 22, take this review as your sign to GO THERE! I loved it and I will be returning.

Had a nice time with drinks/happy hour after a conference. Cocktail was expensive but good. Clam plate was good. Close to the Duke medical center hotel. Reasonable choice for drinks.

Dinner was super yum- we love the cheese board and the cornbread specifically. Also a very relaxed yet elevated atmosphere and huge drinks menu which is nice. My only issue was I made a note when I made the reservation and then again when I called to confirm being like oh we're coming here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, and that was not mentioned at all by the waitstaff. I understand that not every place gives free dessert or whatnot but even just mentioning it and being like oh happy birthday! Would be the type of thing that would've been really appreciated. Especially since when I made the reservation there was a spot for "is this a special occasion". I'd rather they leave that question off if they're not going to do anything with that information

Great organic food. I feel like a cool hipster here. Definitely come here with friends to drink - massive list of beer/wine/cocktails.

We were in Durham this past weekend and went to Local 22 Friday night. The food was amazing and the service was great. Our only complaint was the music was too loud, but that is just a personal preference and it did not ruin our experience. If we are in Durham again, we will most definitely eat here again!

Last Night was our first time at this restaurant. We will definitely be going back. Everything we had was DELICIOUS and high quality food.
I also appreciate that they use OpenTable for reservations. Lastly our waiter was awesome!

Great find in Durham around Duke University. By far, the best Bloody Mary I've ever had. Everything was fresh and made that day-- including the tomato base. Awesome 👌
We ordered a charcuterie with smoked trout dip and it came with fresh bread, and accouterments, all of which were delicious. We split a beet salad topped with shrimp that was more than enough for two.
