Reservations…the fine print

Due to the small size of the restaurant The American Local takes a limited number of larger party reservations (6-11 people), parties of less than 6 are seated on a first come first served basis. Our reservation times are available at 5:30pm & 6:00pm or 8:00pm & 8:30pm. In order for us to guarantee reservations at specific times the tables are booked for 2 hour increments (luckily the food comes out of the kitchen lightning fast); as a condition of reserving, your table must be free 2 hours after your reserved time so that we may seat the next party in a timely manner. We ask for a credit card number to secure the reservation and ask for 24 hour courtesy notice in the event of cancellation. There is a $25 fee for late cancellations or no-shows. 

Due to the high cost associated with credit card processing, there is a 3 credit card limit per party. We are happy to split the check between 3 cards and cash if needed.

Don’t want to think about anything except having fun? Let us prepare a set menu ahead of time! We can customize a menu just for you, just ask.

If you would like to make a reservation outside of the available times or for more than 11 people please contact the restaurant directly at (503) 954-2687 or
