Excellent food. choice of music took away from the dining experience, level of service did not meet our expectations for the dining experience we were seeking.

Clearly a hit with the locals, the restaurant was packed and bustling and folks coming in and out seemed to know each other as there were greetings all round. The eatery provided hangers and a mobile rack for winter coats, which was very welcome because...More

We love going to the Local! The chef/owner, Kevin Halligan, changes up the menu so that the choices are always spectacular—seasonal and super (farm) fresh. Stopped by the other night for a light dinner and it was awesome—candied cranberry salad was yummy, the meatballs were...More

We came for the half price apps and wine on Wednesday, that was the best decision ever. This is a top chef gourmet restaurant that we can all afford. The calamari was absolute perfection perfectly paired with peperoncini peppers and deep fried to golden deliciousness....More

Menu limited but presentation, quality and taste all very high level. Wine selection extensive. Prices are out of sync with ambiance and service. Way too high. Inside very much in need of a makeover. Service mediocre.

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.
