Yes, it helps to local business. If your Google business page has more positive reviews and rating then your local business listing of the page may get high ranking for demographic keywords.

Yes, @KristinaRoy is right, it will help your local SEO, but also keep in mind that Google does factor in search intent - so definitely use local keywords (in addition to your broader business-genre keywords) as part of your strategy.

Not sure about the ranking but number of reviews and ratings definitely helps to increase traffic on your website. Because Google business reviews and rating increase trust factor. So it definitely helps your business.

In my opinion yes, slightly. As long as they are legitimate and quality reviews. Not the power of backlinks, but helps nonetheless.

I think it mostly helps local businesses. but if the reviews are legit, it occasionally ads value to the website as well, given that the website is added to the business page.

I had also seeking the same question on google search and i red many blogs and post... yes, it is definitely works on local search. Good ratings and positive reviews helps to increase listing ranking and traffic. So whenever you’re searched for on Google, your listing will showcase your fantastic service, enhancing trust and helping to drive qualified traffic to your site.

Google reviews and ratings are great way to build trust for your business however it wont help to increase traffic on your website. If there are many positive reviews and good ratings for your business, it will help to build trust and conversion might increase.

From the horse's mouth:

Local results appear for people who search for businesses and places near their location. They're shown in a number of places across Maps and Search. For example, you’ll probably see local results if you search for “Italian restaurant” from your mobile device. Google will try to show you the kind of nearby restaurant that you’d like to visit. In the image below, Google uses local results to suggest some options...

...You can improve your business’s local ranking by using Google My Business...

...How Google determines local ranking

Local results are based primarily on relevance, distance, and prominence. These factors are combined to help find the best match for your search. For example, Google algorithms might decide that a business that's farther away from your location is more likely to have what you're looking for than a business that's closer, and therefore rank it higher in local results.
Improve your local ranking on Google
