Google seems to be testing a grid-like format for local results in the mobile web search results. We see these grid formats primarily for product and shopping search results, but I don't think I've seen this for local search listings.

This was spotted by Brandon on Twitter who posted a video cast of this in action, here is a still screenshot from that video that you can click on to enlarge:

I really don't like how this looks for these types of results. I don't mind them for product listings but for local or other listings, I do not like it.

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Update: This grid format can show a heck of a lot of local results:
