The Local Eatery offers quiet inside seating or outside relaxing tables. The menu is created from local foods and changes every two weeks. Unique dishes and flavors make it hard to decide. So you can eat there again! Enjoy!

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.
