If u visit the okanagan you must visit this place, best food you can experience in the okanagan. I opted for the chuck steak burger and fries instead of the more sophisticated tasting menu items, and was not disappointed. Instead I was able to taste the best fries ever made and the most juicy originally flavored burger of all time. 5*

Thank you for taking the time to convey your personal sentiments about our dining establishment. The term "expensive" is a personal opinion that everyone is entitled too. What is expensive for one person is not for another.

Not sure who on our team would have said that you do not require a reservation? It is always mentioned and greatly appreciated when you do call ahead.

We are not physic and have no idea as to who you are travelling with, so were not sure what you mean by mobility friendly. We have ease of access with no stairs to the Grille entrance and Patio areas of our establishment. Obviously, we were not the right fit for the atmosphere and budget you were searching for.

We are pleased to learn that you discovered another establishment in Summerland that was able to serve you a meal that you felt comfortable with; and more importantly fell with in your dining budget.

Thanks for trying us out, and what we offer is not for everyone. That's why there are numerous dining options to choose from on a daily basis.

Regards,

Cameron Bond
Managing Director.

We ate dinner in the restaurant at Local, and had a meal that exceeded our expectations. All of the dishes we chose (3 starters, 2 mains) were well-designed and well-executed, with fresh ingredients and obviously a lot of skill in the kitchen. The selection of local wines was exceptional. Service was competent and friendly. Bottom line: we'd recommend Local with just two caveats. First, it's a little noisier than we prefer. But some call that atmosphere, and it may not bother you. Second, even given the high quality it's no bargain; we're guessing there's a premium for the location. Again, a subjective point; others may value these things differently.

We had to go back a second night so I could have something else on the menu. Believe it or not it was the chicken! Great atmosphere and excellent service. Would highly recommend this place :)
