My birthday was yesterday and my wife suggested we try the Local Eatery. This turned out to be an excellent decision. We like the concept of using local farm fresh produce and as we discovered from the menu, dishes can be prepared gluten-free on request....More

I have nothing but praise for the Local Eatery. After eating here it was very difficult to make myself try other restaurants. The atmosphere, food and service were excellent.

A reservation is a M U ST!!! Everything comes from LOCAL sources. Extremely fresh, exquisitely prepared ands served by a friendly knowledgeable staff. Never rushed but not deliberately slow either. Small setting but not crowded. Enjoyed their specials immensely.

The Local Eatery features a year-round menu using as much local food as Chef Kevin Hallifan can find. Even through the winter produce will be preserved from summer surplus or greenhouse grown by special arrangement with local farmers.
