I've eaten here several times and the food is good.it is no longer a seafood resturant. Shannon is very friendly and helpful. Prices are on the upper average side.

Heard from the "locals" that this was a good place to eat. However was disappointed. First was interrogated by the waitress as to where I wanted to sit; seems that I insulted her by asking to see the menu before deciding that I would stay. Consistently felt that I was getting the third degree by her throughout the meal; maybe... More

The outside looks like you'd be lucky to get a well prepared hamburger. Then you step inside where it is bright, fresh and welcoming, but still nothing special. The food, however, WAS special. I had a delicious trout almondine -- cooked perfectly, not too dry, great seasoning -- with the tastiest couscous I think I've ever had. My son had... More

This is an apparently often overlooked gem in Hermiston. I had the prawns and scallops, which were perfectly prepared. The vegetables were likewise delicious. I would definitely return.

The LOCAL PLACE is a solid performer. The customer service was good, the food was really tasty and the cost was typical of others in its class. It has BIG portions and it taste great! It is also the best go to for seafood in Hermiston. Don't expect the Taj Mahal here, it's just a cool little resturant with good... More

My favorite place to eat in Hermiston. Owned by an Hispanic family, the food has a distinctive edge that you don't find in the typical clam-chowder, fried clams seafood joint. My favorite dishes are the seared ahi tuna salad with a cup of the ocean soup. (Imagine a beautiful brothy cioppino or only $4 or $6.) Try this place, but... More

It is so very nice to have a seafood restaurant in Hermiston. The Local Place has very good food and the service is always friendly. Try their crab chowder on Fridays.

This new restaurant has been right under our noses for 10 months or so & we'd not heard of them. Thought the building was still closed. What a surprise! We love the menu variety--soups, salads, pasta, seafood, vegetarian & a kids' menu. Food plated attractively, delicious, hot & reasonably-priced. Nothing the 3 of us ordered was dried out or cold...
