While it may be warm outside, the Local’s remains cool with a new shade sail!

The warm Niceville weather presents a great opportunity for outside dining. Though, as the summer months roll on, it can be sweltering. No worries, the Local’s Eatery in Niceville has you covered, literally. With the installation of their new shade sail, customers can enjoy the water-front views comfortably. Some of you however, may choose to be in the sun, as you are more concerned about your beach bod. While some sun is healthy, UV rays are nothing to play around with.

Protect yourself from UV rays while enjoying the dog days

July is national UV safety awareness month, so its great timing to touch on the harmful effects of UV rays. Skin cancer is the most common cancer and is caused most often by UV rays (CDC, 2021). So, it is very important to protect yourself when outside. To reduce your risk of sun damage and skin cancer, the CDC recommends wearing sunscreen, protective clothing, sunglasses, and of course, shade (CDC, 2021). National Mutt Day is also in July, on the 31st. So, you and your best friend can celebrate in the shade at the Local’s. That’s right, the Local’s is a pet-friendly restaurant! While they don’t have a menu for the pooches, they do have great selection of food for the rest of the family.

Indoors or Out, the Local’s is what it’s all about!

Much has been said about the awesome water-front views at the Local’s Eatery. But of course, they offer a great indoor atmosphere as well. Whether you want to enjoy a cold beverage at the bar or enjoy the view of the bayou from their abundant window seats, there’s a place for anyone to enjoy. Oh, and of course, the food! The Local’s features some unique items like the Grouben and the Loaf. “The Grouben” is their take on the Reuben, that features the namesake, fried grouper. “The Loaf” is bacon-wrapped and smoked and topped with sweet chili BBQ sauce, It ain’t your momma’s meatloaf, but you’re sure to like it just as well. Of course, there’s a menu to satisfy the little one’s, cleverly coined “The Little Local’s” menu. The Niceville weather can be unpredictable at times. So, inside or out, the Local’s is what it’s all about!
