The Local House
The food there is OUTSTANDING. But the service was slow. We waited 10 minutes before I finally asked a waitress to find our server. After ordering and eating, i asked for a second cup of coffee and they forgot. They did take that off the tab, but the service was slow.
I will be going back though. There lobster eggs Benedict is ON point ❤️❤️
We were disappointed in the food but more so in the fact that our salads and entrees were delivered at the same time and within 5 minutes of our ordering. It was odd and we did ask that the entrees be returned to the kitchen to at least remain under a heat lamp while we worked through the first course. In the end, the food was mediocre at best but still commanding a Miami price. We will not return even though we are in the neighborhood and it is so convenient. Too bad.
Great food with cute decor! Service was great!
Great food, we had the burger, the Mac and lobster and the shrimp and clam pasta. All were excellent
Cute little place, food was on point, good for a more low key dinner with great quality food.
Went for brunch on Monday before Christmas. The place filled up quickly at noon. If you are looking to take your time and wait for service and your food, then it’s a good place to try fresh, well-prepared food. More than one table around me asked the staff where their food was and we waited almost 20 minutes for a side order of fries. The staff was extremely courteous but harried. The prices were slightly higher than usual South Beach meals, especially because the portions weren’t huge.
The ambiance and decor were phenomenal! The food as well. I highly recommend the lobster mac and cheese! I could eat that everyday!
Locale molto curato e accogliente! Davvero consigliatissimo e da non perdere!
Horrible experience be careful of this place scam restaurant..
Online advertised thanksgiving dinner with a full menu explained..
Took my reservation even conformation..when we got there no thanksgiving dinner wasn’t even
Thought of !had to order from regular menu ordered salmon filet got fish chunks in sauce and under cooked vegetables..added creamed spinach to order to boost price ..
No manager to explain just poor waiter telling all customers about no thanksgiving dinner..
Avoid at all costs ..this is the problem in south beach will tell customers anything to get them there..
Being most tourists that will never come back.. and next week new batch of tourists to scam..
City will most likely get involved to fine this place but will take awhile..so avoid now!
This is a cozy restaurant on Ocean Dr, a little bit away from the buzz a little farther down the street. Great outdoor dining, and inside dining offered a wonderful ambiance. Service was great, food was excellent...what more do you need at dinner? Definitely recommend!
Visited for Brunch and loved it!! It was my girlfriend birthday and I was in search of a nice low key spot for Brunch on the Beach. The Local House was perfect, not to mention only footsteps away from the Ocean via South Beach.
Overall disappointing, in the past this spot had much better food and the ambiance was much nicer. Now it’s very tired looking, food very mediocre... service was good.
Really great experience ! We liked it so much that we went back for brunch the next day. The avocado toast is excellent. The drinks were very thoughtful. If I visit Miami again I’ll be going back
Very good food and good service ! Thank you
I recommend this place
Amazing breakfast. Tatjana was our server and she was quick, polite and overall amazing.
Place is so clean and crisp with great little touches everywhere. Service was EXCELLENT and food was even BETTER!!!!
Muy buen restaurant en el area tranquila de Ocean Drive. Comida excelente, muy buen servicio y cocktails, la comida tiene buenos precios pero con el alcohol la cuenta se eleva mucho. Muy disfrutable, ideal para conversar entre amigos. Parking en la calle a $4.35 la hora versus parking de flat rate a$10 en la misma vereda
Every time I come to Miami I stop by The Local House! This place has the best breakfast/brunch menu. They place great attention to the seasoning of their food and the side of potatos and hash browns are to die for. The Local breakfast, Crab benedict and the Lobster Eggs benedict are both two of my most favorite options here. You can also get a picther of mimosa that is not too sweet and just enough to share bewteen three people. If the weather is nice I recommend sitting outside at a table or their lovley couch seating. The staff here are always nice and vibrant when you arrive which is such a great way to start at any resturant!
The Local House will be an excellent choice; whether you are dining with a group or with that special someone. The food was excellent. The customer service was superb. I would highly recommend for all.
The food here was light and flavorful. One of the few restaurants on Ocean Avenue where you are not harassed to come to eat. Would definitely eat here again.
We were celebrating a friend’s 40th birthday in Miami. Ladies from all over cane into town. This was our first meal together and it was a HIT!! The food and service was perfect and our server went over and beyond to insure we were having a great brunch. All of the ladies wanted to eat at the Local House each morning during our stay. I highly recommend this restaurant.
A nice relaxing spot with good service. The food was delicious and so were the cocktails. If you’re looking for good service, good food/drinks and something different than this is a place you should check out.
"Great food, excellent service, nice atmosphere and good prices." highly recommend this place.
Menu was diverse enough to please everyone. Salmon salad and fried chicken were amazing !
Service was delightful.
Good staff and location
Great food, nice setting, delicious cocktails and professional service. Server Dejan was friendly and professional. And he makes a great blood orange margarita!!
The staff were very nice hospitable, especially with helping a reasonable spot to change my baby. I wish they had a baby changing table in one of the bathrooms, but they were at least helpful and kind about it. The value the food was definitely overpriced. The seafood was very delicious but the sides were not up to my expectations.
The ambiance of this was simply amazing. The staff were polite and cordial and even the food was amazing. The only real problem with the place was their pricing. I ordered their fish from their menu because that is what they are known for. My dish alone was about $40 but I was okay with that because I assumed that it was going to be filling. When my meal came out I had a very thin, almost transparent fillet of fish with like 10 fries stacked up to make things look bigger. I understand that due to the location of the place why there prices have to be so high but due to this very fact, Local House is a "one and done" for me. But you should totally go and try it for yourself. I think that everyone should go to this place at least once.
Very good place, quiet, friendly staff.
Food and service were impeccable. Lovely dining room with peaceful ambience. Cocktails were creative and scrumptious (I LOVED "down the rabbit hole"); salads were meticulously prepared and (Greek and tuna) savory; tempura appetizer was light, crispy and flavorful; and shortrib burger was great. The shrimp risotto was flavorful but a bit skimpy on the shrimp. Warm and friendly staff.
Terrible - we waited for 25 minutes at our table and never even got water. A waiter once looked at us and proceeded to keep walking. Best part is the place was practically empty. Needless to say we found a better place to eat at just up the block.
Food was just food. It all looked like it was sitting out for hours and did not taste good. The restaurant itself was so charming though. Great place to have a drink
Wonderful!!! Best place in OceanDrive.
This place is underrated in terms of food quality and service. Great breakfast. Crab cake Benedict should not be missed. The service is good too! They were really busy on the morning we visited and still our coffee cups and tea were refilled and our server was very nice and did not rush us. This is my favorite breakfast spot! So cute! Love the outdoor seating!
We went to the Local House for the first time this year on our first night in Miami. In the past we have really enjoy it but this time we were very disappointed. The food was marginal at best and the drinks were just okay. The wait staff was as we remembered it top notch. They were very attentive and very sweet. I'm not sure if we'll go back. It is a good place to sit outside for a glass of wine. Perhaps they were having a bad night with their food so hopefully it will be good again.
The food was uninspiring....and the vegetables (broccolini) tasted like it had been cleaned with cleaning fluid. Server was lovely, though.
Great setting, more classic than some of the "South Beach" party spots. Loved the ambiance and Alex the bartender was fantastic. He made some of the best cocktails I've ever had. Was there for lunch at the bar and enjoyed a salad with grilled shrimp. It was fresh and yummy.
A group of 4 of us came to have our NYE Dinner, from the moment we arrived the host was friendly and welcoming and as soon as we walked in Eric (bar tender) and Natalie ( waitress) received us as if they already knew us, we felt right at home!
Thank you for making our dinning experience unforgettable and will most definetly recommend this place to all my friends!
Natalie was our server and really made our visit enjoyable. Accordingly returned five times.
Service was off, waited 30 min for our first cocktail, the dinner was delivered 7 minutes after ordering, and one dish was a risotto that takes longer than that to make, so clearly the kitchen pre makes everything and it sits. Not ok given the price point. Wouldn't go again - too many other exceptional places in the same price point.
