Fun Fact:  Why is it called a “public house eatery”?

The word “pub” comes from “public house.” In older times, the term signified someone’s house that had been opened to the public. A pub is truly the neighborhood’s living room. It’s an everyday party for the neighborhood.

The Absolute BEST  you’ll find “Locally” 

The Local’s Public House Eatery, located at 113 John Sims Parkway W., features an assortment of seafood, chicken, steak, smoked meats, hearty entrees and local vegetables…. all made fresh by Chef Cory Hassett, a well known and award winning chef!

What you’re going to see here are a lot of smoked items….we have some heartier stuff, seafood, greens and a kid’s menu we call ‘Little Locals’” says the Chef.

You can enjoy the dishes inside the restaurant, or with the magnificent view of Boggy Bayou under our covered patio. The “Local’s” also features two wooden garage-style doors that open up the restaurant during beautiful, sunny days. 

Yes, we are open! Indoor & outdoor patio seating as well as carry out!
