In a goal to eat more local and support surrounding businesses it is hard to miss the restaurant with “local” in it’s name. The Local Eatery and Pub (known in short as The Local) is one of the places in town that if you haven’t tried it yet you absolutely must. One big goal of this restaurant is locally raised or grown food and they regularly feature local farms in their ever changing menu. The owners of this local establishment are passionate about their food and their mission and it shows in the tasty and beautiful food they serve. The house panini is filling and fresh tasting along with their surprisingly hearty vegetarian black bean chili. On top of their invigorating and unique menu the atmosphere is energetic and exciting. Add to that their knowledgeable and friendly wait staff, their large selection of drinks, and their catering service and you have the perfect makings of a top notch restaurant. I encourage you all to check out this local restaurant as well as others in an effort to support our local businesses!
