Description: Seafood-centric eatery nestled in the boutique hotel Sense Beach House. The place to find locals during weekend brunch and enjoying happy hour during weekday afternoons. Don't like seafood? Don't runaway! We have something for everyone.

This is the perfect spot for a long and relaxing weekend brunch. The food is good but the bottomless mimosas make it great! We have gone there twice with friends for brunch and had so much fun both times that we stayed until almost 6pm! The ambiance is nice and relaxing, and the outdoor seating gives you plenty of fun people watching. A great spot for any meal…but a lot of fun for a nice long brunch with friends.

Popped in for a bite to eat and quick drink ahead of a trip to the theatre. Happy hour drinks are 241 on wine, so I had a couple of nice glasses of Pinot Grigio. Free homemade focaccia with tomato dip, and I ordered a yummy starter of goats cheese croquettes. Agree with other reviewers - much nicer than the places that hassle you on Ocean Drive. Relaxed atmosphere and good service. Away from the passing throngs of college students as well this week! I will be going back on a day when I want to eat more!

We enjoyed dinner at the Local House. Fresh food in a nice atmosphere. Service was good and they paid attention to our pace and allowed us to relax in conversation with some new friends that we met there. Overall a very positive experience

Just what we were looking for! NOT like those overrated restaurants on Ocean Drive with cookie cutter menus, silly oversized cocktails, and staff begging you to stop in!!

Great beach decor, friendly wait staff. Our waiter was top notch! We enjoyed the Crispy Light Calamari with Fresh Basil and Spicy Fra Diavolo Sauce, strawberry arugula salad with grouper, pan seared salmon over Summer vegetable Ratatouille, lemon, homemade seafood broth and a side of asparagus.

Very reasonably priced.

There is a lovely ambiance to this small boutique style restaurant Tables on the terrace as well as inside and also food at the bar.But oh dear-we waited 40 minutes for food to arrive We watched other people being served bread, being served their appetizers/main courses and all the while we sat there being ignored. Finally a waiter seemed to spot our growing irriation and we finally got our food and lots of apologies.
We had already overheard waiters telling other guests they were short staffed . Such a shame as our first impressions were so good we actually said we can see ourselves eating here again on our short vacation but not now. Sorry you blew it

On the positive side the food was good-and decent value. Comping one main course because of the delay was a classy touch but we went out happy to spend money for a nice evening In the end we felt it was a complete waste of time and money. Under different management this could be great but for us it wasnt and boy is there a lot of competition on your doorstep :-(
