dining experience


Locals Restaurant is fully wheelchair accessible. Our Main Level Dining Room and washrooms are fully accessible. Our patio has one 4" step down, and is often navigated by backing the wheelchair down the step, with assistance. The Upper Dining Room has 3 stairs, with a very sturdy handrail.

dining with children

We welcome young diners to experience Locals cuisine. As we have no deep fryer, our children’s menu is healthy and varied. We recommend that you request an earlier reservation time, before the restaurant is very busy and meal times take a bit longer. The acoustics of the restaurant occasionally pose a challenge due to height of the ceilings. Should your child become noisy, we respectfully request that you respond and attempt to settle him or her. Please let your server or the hostess know if there is anything we can do to make your dining experience more comfortable and enjoyable.

Pet Dog Policy

We are pleased to have dogs on our patio and deck, as long as the guidelines below are followed.

Ensure your dog is under your control at all times with a leash, harness or carrier, and kept at ground level. Use only your dog‘s water bowl, or Locals metal dog bowl for food & drink (no Locals‘ plates or bowls please).

Do not allow your dog to bark at or chase the rabbits in the garden.

If your dog is disruptive, please remove them prior to our staff having to ask.

Based on: B.C. Provincial Policy on Pet Dogs on Outdoor Dining Areas- March 2020

gift certificates

We have Gift Certificates available to purchase in person, or by phone.  We do not send electronic versions of the GC, due to potential mishandling. Our local mail is sent to Vancouver for sorting, so please take that in consideration with your time line.   If you would prefer to purchase over the phone, please call 250-338-6493, just preferably not during the peak service hours of 11:30- 3:00 and 5:00 - 9:00. Also, please note that gift certificates cannot replaced if lost or stolen.

reservation times

As we make everything in house, from scratch, and to order, we wish to ensure ample time for your dining experience. Dinner reservations are accepted in 2 1/2 hour intervals. If you are running off to a show, catching a ferry, etc. please inform your server. Please note that we do not have a lounge or bar in which to wait, should you arrive early for your reservations.

vegetarian, vegan & gluten-free options

We are very pleased to offer dishes for our guests with specific dietary requirements and preferences, and are noted on our menus. Please discuss your dietary requirements and preferences with your server.
