The Local House
Thanks to Yelp, Google and Open Table I knew the food would be EXCELLENT! The truffle Mac & cheese is officially my favorite from anywhere here in Miami, still drooling. The food is extremely fresh, we were very happy with our meals.
Will be more than happy to return for Brunch!
Service was fast, easy, friendly. Our server wasn’t much of a talker but was very courteous. Was kind enough to bring us a little dessert with a birthday candle for my Mother In Law at no additional charge.
Can’t wait to come back and try the pancakes and eggs bennies!
Nothing is special here. I had a Snapper (big portion), it was ok. There are other places which offer more....
Beautiful little place great food, relaxing, great breakfast place to sit outside, very comfortable
Very close to the beach but just on a city street. Outdoor tables had roof and overhead fans and also there were couches outside.
Food was creative and well made.
Great restaurant/bar in an even greater boutique hotel. Highly recommend Sense and The Local House.
Great food, good service and a pleasant ambience. We will definitely re-visit.
Relaxing atmosphere. Great food. Happy hour menu is where it’s at. The black bean burger is quite good.
The Brussels sprouts were delicious and fish tasted very fresh. Great cocktails and wine and our waiter, Urish, was attentive and efficient.
Restaurant had already ran out of a couple menu items and we got there before the dinner rush.
Nice looking restaurant and friendly staff however they seemed to be “out” of half the menu. No fried chicken, no roasted chicken, no French fries, no Chardonnay, limited appetizers, etc, etc.
They were ran out of oysters and the main course came with the appetizer at the same time
We really enjoyed our dinner. I had the lobster mac n cheese with black pasta and it was excellent. Our waiter was very busy but was attentive to us, polite, and made sure to check my allergies with the chef. I had read some reviews that said that sometimes the wait staff is a bit slow but we did not find it so; we ordered our shared Caesar salad and mains to come when they were ready in the kitchen (same style used by Legal Seafood btw) and that worked perfectly. We ate outside on their patio, which is right next to the sidewalk on Ocean Drive. This is a vibrant part of Miami Beach and while the noise level is not a problem there is a lot of activity from busy traffic to families with small children trooping by to groups of young people out to see and be seen. You can indulge your people-watching, or have your own quiet conversation at your table, or both, as you wish.
Service left a lot to be desired and the big screen TVs are so out of place. Food was good but overpriced for how simple it was.
Great place. Food and service was excellent.
Food was mediocre and the service was HORRIBLE. Some of the slowest service in Miami (for lunch on a Tuesday). Food is overpriced and under seasoned. Nice outdoor seating.
Excellent local breakfast in South Beach, huge portion and great fruit selection, eggs cooked perfectly. The service was awfully slow, but other than that, would highly recommend this for breakfast
Not at all what I expected--not a seafood restaurant at all. Nothing special.
Dear foodie4life, We are sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations and that the variety of seafood items on our menus were not to your liking. We hope you can share a few more details as to what made the experience less than special. All feedback is appreciated and is used an opportunity for improvement! Thank you!
We enjoyed our meal so much on Monday night that we returned on Tuesday. Excellent fresh fish. Oysters were divine. Great value for money.
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.
Neighborhood gem! Food is always great and waiters always nice and observant. Love this spot for brunch!
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.
