My wife and I stopped at The Local Joint during a midweek getaway. It was about 10am, to get a late breakfast. Service was good and prompt. My wife had the "fungi" breakfast and liked it a lot; the eggs were perfectly pushed and the...More

I love the local joint. I like their menu. I like the vibe and I like the service. Food is always tasty. I live fairly close too. Usually go for breakfast but have been there for dinner a few times. Always stellar.

I had the fungi eggs that were pretty good but I was disappointed the poached egg was super over cooked and not runny at all. And the fried egg sandwich as well as the grits were bland and the bread was hard.

Took grandkids to The Local Joint. Had pancakes, scramble plate, traditional, canjan chicken biscuit and all were good. Grandson ate his biscuit, then the rest of pancakes, so he was not hungry at lunch.
