Our Story

We, owners Linda Stephens and Trish Stratton, had a vision to create an environment where family and friends could gather for food, laughter and music.

We have a flair for the grill, homecooking and fun recipes. Nowhere else can you get a fried bologna sandwich on the same menu with pot roast, burgers made to order, and the #1 requested, the mother of all sandwiches, THE MEATLOAF AND EGG SANDWICH! And don’t forget dessert...we have “moonshiners” (ancient Chinese secret) and, if you’re lucky, homemade ice cream. This is comfort food at its finest!

We use local produce grown onsite and from other local growers, when available. Drinks are all non-alcoholic but it’s a BYOB environment...bring your own alcohol (and maybe a few for the kitchen).

Our eclectic, comfortable outdoor atmosphere has multiple oak trees to shade you in the summer, and outdoor heaters and firepits to keep you comfy in the winter. That’s when you can toast your own s’mores too! It’s weather permitting...meaning, it depends on Mother Nature and our arthritis!

And don’t forget...there’s local area live entertainment every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Make your plans for a weekend...and bring your favorite four-legged friend because dogs are always welcome. As Linda puts it, “We like our guests but we love the dogs!” Only two rules...dogs are welcome in the dining area and kids are welcome in the dog park. We even have special menus for both!

We offer a great place for a casual lunch with co-workers or a laidback dinner with friends. We even cater with our farm to table availability. And if you’re looking for a place to have a big get-together, we have a special Garden Room with a view or indoor dining with air conditioning.

The Local Cafe is a one-of-a-kind outdoor experience you won’t want to miss! Remember, everybody’s somebody at The Local!
