Openlist is very useful for seeing what other review sites are saying. Most of their reviews are syndicated, but rarely updated. Openlist shares some data with Localeze which assists in keeping listings up to date.

From (Site Owner)
Find the local businesses that your friends and neighbors recommend.

This site is powered by Open List, a local information service designed to help you find the best local businesses. Whether you’re looking for the best auto mechanic in town…a nearby doctor that specializes in family medicine…or a contractor to remodel your kitchen, Open List’s comprehensive collection of user and expert reviews, ratings, and recommendations can help you find what you are looking for quickly and allow you to make better everyday decisions.

Open List searches the Web for you
Open List scours sites all across the Web for third-party reviews and ratings about local businesses and matches those reviews up to a complete database of all U.S. businesses. We then find and add details like neighborhoods, specialties, services, and features to help you narrow your search.

Best of all, Open List aggregates the third-party reviews and ratings to display an overall rating so you can tell at a glance which businesses are most likely to provide a positive experience.

Let your voice be heard by entering your own reviews and ratings
You can rate and review businesses based on your own experiences. The more ratings and reviews, the easier it is for everyone to find a business they will like. Please write an honest and fair assessment of your own experience in the open text box provided. Even if you don’t want to take the time to write a review, you can easily and quickly provide your general opinion by submitting an “I like it” or “I don’t like it” vote that will be included in the overall rating for a business.

 This site is just right
 This site includes only the businesses that belong here, to help you find the right business in the right location. Finding quality local businesses has never been easier.

 How Open List started
Founded in 2003 and based in Seattle, WA, Open List started with business listings for restaurants, hotels and attractions, and now covers all business types, making it a powerful local-search service.
