I went to The Local House when visiting South Beach for a bachelorette party. The restaurant is beautiful, it has a relaxing beachy vibe that was great to kickoff our trip. Our waiter was excellent and was able to recommend some delicious drinks from their menu. I ordered the Blood Orange Margarita, which was very good. A friend ordered the Beyond Good and Evil (too spicy for my taste) but she enjoyed it a lot.

For dinner, I had the Pan Seared Salmon. It was cooked perfectly and the vegetable side that comes with it was a perfect complement.

Overall, The Local House was a great stop on our bachelorette trip for a more low key evening. The atmosphere is totally relaxing with great food and specialty drinks! I would definitely recommend dining here!

The food was very good. I would say fit for foodies. The drinks where perfect for SOBe. Unfortunately the wait staff was not very friendly and very, very slow. The restaurant was not full and it took about 20 minutes just to get menus. By the time we got our first drink 45 minutes had gone by. The only bright spot was the food runner. He was friendly and always on the move. With a better wait staff this would be a great place.

Great find on the quiet end of Ocean Drive. We dined outside since it was a nice evening and there was still plenty of good people watching. The staff was friendly, warm atmosphere, excellent service all around.
Hubby loved his oyster martini and the bacon wrapped stuffed dates were the best we've ever had. Good wine list. Will definitely return.

This is a nice, relaxed little restaurant at the quiet end of Ocean Drive, and it has indoor and outdoor seating. The bartenders are excellent. The vibe is beachy and relaxed. We thought the dinner entrees were great as well as the bar snacks. We also had brunch which was good rather than great, but this is a lovely place for a relaxed dinner or pre-dinner cocktails.

Really good cooking. Highly recommended are the stuffed dates as an appetiser. We fully agree with the previous reviews that this is so much better than some of the other places further along Ocean Drive. This is not for the person that has turned up at South Beach for the party! Quite and sophisticated - great place to chill and relax.
