    Were at the one in West Newton. I discovered a new gf beer: Celia by Ipswich. Good but not my preferred. Took the chicken sesame bowl. Really good.

    Always a safe bet for good fresh food the whole family can enjoy. This location (unlike Newton) has a dedicated fryer.

    I'm extremely sensitive and had no issues at The Local. The server and manager were very helpful and careful and my Asian Bowl was delicious. I'll definitely go back.

    Food is fantastic- menu items that you might be unlikely to go to the effort to make at home, and unique in the good way :)- so delicious. Between us we had several food intolerances but the staff was accommodating.

    Never had a problem dining in, but beware if you are picking up to take home. They have sent me home with non-gf versions 3 TIMES! Each time, it was something I'd had in the restaurant, so it looked wrong and I wasn't poisoned, but this indicates a serious problem to me in communication/training about allergies.

    No dedicated fryer at this location but the mac&cheese is so good you won't miss fries anyway. Knowledgeable staff, felt very safe without needing to ask too many questions.

    We went to The Local in Wellesley and had a great experience. They have a lot of GF options--including beer and mac-n-cheese. They also have a dedicated GF frier at this location. The waitress was great, the food amazing and I did not get sick. I would highly recommend.

    The gluten-free menu is pretty extensive, but I ordered a gluten-free pasta dish and was served the regular pasta. I was suspicious after a few spoonfuls and asked the waitress, who said it was not gluten-free. They then brought me a gluten-free dish and I did not pay for my meal, but that does not change the fact that I got very sick.

    Food is amazing and has a VERY extensive GF menu which includes most of their top apps and entrees in a modified version and many are just GF to start.
