Had dinner here the other night. The food is fresh and delicious. Enjoyed the fried pickles and broiled flounder. Pickles definitely met my salt craving and we're accompanied by two sauces. We were well taken care of by our server Katie. I will definitely return and recommend this place.

What a find! We used Yelp while traveling and found The Local (I95/Hwy 17)  The shrimp Po Boy was wonderful!!  Highly recommend giving it a try.  The owner, Jay, is a vet and very welcoming and friendly.

Unfamiliar with corkage laws. We asked the host if we could bring in our own bubbles, as we were celebrating and they didn't have it on the menu. The host said it was fine. When we brought out our own bottle, the bartender rushed our table and told us we were breaking the law. It was super awkward! Not long after, the owner came and ... read more

We came here at 9pm after driving for ten hours!  We met the owner outside who was very friendly and assured us the po boy sandwiches would be great!

Warm setting. Nice and attentive waitress. Food was fast and tasty. Fried green tomatoes were thicker than we make them and they were delicious. Hubs had prime rib with mac'n'cheese.
