I visited Locus to see how it faired alongside the other restaurants around the Main Street strip. I must say that held their reputation well. The service was prompt and courteous. Their establishment was clean and the decor was elegant. Their seating layout was spacious even when it was busy. But on to the food, their food was delicious. We tried both the lamb and the veal dishes, as well as the mussels and clams and everything was bursting with flavour. Their drink menu is extensive and priced quite well. I'd recommend Locus for anyone looking to try something new on the Main Street strip.
Even if you arrive by your lonesome, you'll soon have plenty of friends because the Locus is a cheek-by-jowl kind of place, filled with a friendly, funky crowd of artsy Mount Pleasant types. The big bar is overhung with "swamp-gothic" lacquer trees and surrounded by a tier of stools with booths and tiny tables. The cuisine originated in the American Southwest and picked up an edge along the... more
With a clientele as eclectic as the décor, this hip Main Street eatery is not afraid to blaze its own path. The open kitchen pounds out adventurous menu items under $20 like potato gnocchi ($15) that mingle with abundant vegetarian selections. Strong coffee (every cup’s an Americano) and generous portions make this a popular brunch spot. At night the cavernous room, with its large bar, deep... more

I reserved a table for six people on Sunday. Surprisingly the restaurant was not too busy, so it wasn't too noisy or packed with people. It was quite comfortable sitting with friends, chatting, and eating together.
Our waitress was good that she would ask what we would like to drink right after we sat down, but it took a long time to bring the drinks to our table.... more
Stopped by for a late breakfast/early lunch on a Sunday. I ordered the Egg White Frittata with bacon and potatoes. It was very tasty! The potatoes where very well cooked with spices which made them so flavorful. The bacon was thick and perfectly crisp. The egg white came with very fresh tasting bell peppers and onions. My husband had the Scrambler and he also enjoyed his meal immensely. This... more
Since my first review was in 2011, I wanted to update in case anyone ignored it as being outdated. This place still rocks. We've come here for brunch several times now, and it's always awesome. The guy who served us the first time (see previous review) I've come to learn is the owner, and he's always there, always smiling, and always checking in to see how everything was. I honestly think if... more
