This is a small restaurant (tables only, spaced close together) that opens for dinner at 4:00 p.m. The service we received from Belle was outstanding. I also noticed if one of our water glasses needed refilling and she wasn't right there, one of the other waiters filled it immediately. The Grilled Chicken Fettuccini was delicious - excellently seasoned and cooked to perfection. My daughter had the smoked pork chop with broccoli salad and she said it was perfect. My grandson was not thrilled with the selections. Belle tried to make something to order for him but he still wasn't happy - not a place to take young children. It is pricey but well worth it for an occasion. In this case, they were donating ten percent of the total bill to benefit Belknap House, a cold weather shelter for homeless families with chilldren in Belknap County.

First time here and will be back for sure. As rural as NH is, you don't find a lot of farm to table restaurants. This one is quite outstanding. It's small, so we had to wait about 30 minutes for a table for 2 in mid-July. Very much worth the wait. Service was great, atmosphere good and food was amazing. I never have desert but decided to try the strawberry rhubarb shortcake. Such a treat.

The Local Eatery offers quiet inside seating or outside relaxing tables. The menu is created from local foods and changes every two weeks. Unique dishes and flavors make it hard to decide. So you can eat there again! Enjoy!

Among the many restaurant options in the Lakes Region, our favorite has eadily become Chef Kevin Halligan's Local Eatery.
Situated within the historic Laconia railroad depot in Veterans Square, the Local offers a farm to table fare that follows the seaonal offerings from many of the area farms and resources. The menu changes frequently and is always posted on the restsurant website. They also have a nice selection of wines and the knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you with selections. Not cheap eats but not overly pricey either. Great cuisine in a cosy, unique space at a great value.

Just discovered this Wonderful restaurant in downtown Laconia. Sorry we had not found sooner! Finest meal we have found in many, many surrounding miles. Duck fettucini with touch of sausage and splash of pepper was absolutely delicious as was wife's gluten free pork tenderloin on rice with...nicely spiced, generous servings. Looking on-line at menu thought on pricey side but not when we dined. Good value, upscale, professionally presented and served delightful meal. Can't wait to go back!
