We went there for breakfast. Great food. I had the kale and cauliflower salad, and Dan had the banana pancakes. We also enjoyed the coffee (being from Australia, we find it hard to get "good" coffee in the US, so this was a delight!) Service was also great and beautiful decor - lovely setting on the street. I was really... More

Stopped off for a break, particularly because I liked the look of the outside seating. It was too early for lunch, but enjoyed coffees sittong out. Great shady loungers outside the restaurant. Service was very attentive, bringing bottled, water, and glasses for us and returning to top us up. Coffee very good and a desent size cups. We didn't have... More

The food is fine for lunch, not a lot of options but still good. The service however is terrible, and not just one server, pretty much all of them. I waited forever to even get someone to the table while 3 feet away a server was on his phone ( but i guess i didn't belong to his tables )... More

Came here for breakfast/brunch one morning, due to the good reviews. The food here is not good. The fish was not fresh and left a very bad aftertaste. I usually never send back food but something was not right. The waitresses were nice enough to switch the fish for bacon. The bacon was okay, nothing great. My friend had the... More

Dear Alessia, Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. I apologize that you experienced this during your visit. It is very surprising to hear that your food was of bad taste and not fresh, as all of our dishes are prepped and made fresh to order in house. All of our seafood is also delivered fresh daily...

It was quiet on a wet Saturday evening and suited us fine. The house special Bloody Mary was very spicy and very good. Tempura starter was soggy and disappointing but the main course burger and mussels were much better. Service was relaxed past the point of comfort and an 18% service charge was added to the bill with no way... More

Had such a wonderful experience. Served by Amarillis but everyone looked after us and ensured we had what we needed. We had a long leisurely brunch and we're not rushed. Food was great, we ordered the kale salad and banana pancakes to share. Highly recommended.

I was looking for a nice breakfast spot - something more than those places on Ocean Drive that are usually crowded with hungover kids - and The Local House was perfect for my choice. A little bit on the further end of the strip, but it turned out to be a nice morning walk on the beach for me. Despite... More

On Ocean Drive where every other restaurant seems to be competing for your attention with loud music and scantily clad waitstaff The Local House was a welcome reprieve. Calm, chill vibe, nice decor, and great food. Loved their outdoor dining area. Tempura starter was fantastic and entrees (salmon, burger, bolognese) all delicious. Our server could've been slightly more attentive but... More

Amazing South Beach Location for Brunch! The restaurant is cute, clean with an amazing outdoor seating area that is perfect for South Beach weather. Very versatile menu with something that will appeal to everyone. A little pricey but well worth the money with the quality of food delivered. Service was amazing, accommodating and very professional. Vegetarian friendly and the staff... More
