What "The Local's" are Saying


 "Located right on the Marina and very picturesque. My husband ordered the Burnt Belly app for his meal and it was incredible. Smoky, juicy pork deliciousness. And to round out the meal we had a slice of Keylime Pie for dessert. Sweet, tart, and creamy, exactly what a keylime pie should be."

"It is the BEST...”

"The Locals is such a treat for lunch or dinner! We always bring our out of town guests here. Please, do yourself a favor and order a piece of key lime pie during your visit. It is the BEST I have ever ever tasted! I didn't even know I liked key lime pie until I tried theirs. Now it's my favorite dessert! ????????!"
