    Please excuse the current state of the website. The menu is in place but the site is still under construction. :)

    no offense but $11 for a buerger and $4.25 for sides like fries is very steep for a double wide trailor restaurant. red bar with the best burger in town is only $9 and its huge with big order of fries. I'd seriously look at your pricing as i think it could be a big a negative. just some friendly advise

    The trailer comment is not fair - it is a local landmark, a hole in the wall, a treasure. lol but I get the point. One of the best strategies ever for a restaurant is make a splash with low prices and great food. Quickly become known for great food and value, then increase prices a bit when you get a following and a good reputation.

    Is this a lunch menu or a dinner menu? I would love to see you succeed!

    I actually tasted some of the menu items last night and I thought everything was phenomenal.

    Anything and everything that goes into their menu is never frozen and made fresh daily. All entrees come with a side, and believe me, the portions you get are worth the money.

    The menu items I tasted were grouper ceviche (with homemade tortilla chips), wings, shrimp taco, crab dip, fried calamari, pork belly and bacon wrapped jalepenos. Oh, and no doubt the best fries on 30a. I knew Adam was a great chef but his food blew me away. Each plate was colorful, had wonderful flavors and a big enough portion to take leftovers home.

    I honestly think that Local Catch will be a refreshing welcome to the restaurant scene on 30a.

    This is Jimmy, one of the owners. I honestly appreciate everyones feedback on our new venture. We have tried our best to bring back a local favorite with local art and musicians, local produce, and good local people. Our prices honestly reflect the quality of our product. It is not frozen, it is not greasy. We will be able to offer daily lunch specials and what we call a "locals meal." I urge you all to give us a chance and continue your feedback, as it is always appreciated. Thanks

    Looking forward to it. I guess Whitney should buy since it sounds like she is way ahead of the game.

    I helped raise the walls in the place back in 1988 I can assure you it's not a trailer! lol right Greg (owner of original Salty Dog)?

    Local Catch

    I think the menu is on point for the season, and if top quality, locally sourced, fresh ingredients are used. I support the owner and chef that are not blindly deciding to open a restaurant serving sub par food. I anticipate fresh clean creations, and can't wait till my visit. You can follow along next week on 30A EATS Facebook as well as www.30AEATS.com to see what I had for lunch, and get the scoop on the restaurant...pictures included!
    For those still in question, the location is East of Gulf Place in Blue Mountain Beach where Salty Dog's and Ballyhoo's once were in business.

    Congrats to Local Catch, the parking lot was packed last night. I have not seen that in a few years. And yes, it is spring break which accounts for some volume, but the previous eatery there never had more than a few cars in the lot. We'll give you a little more time to get all the kinks worked out before we dine there, but I am really glad to see someone in that spot doing well.

    Oh! I can't wait to come in for lunch!!! Everything looks divine and I've heard very good things from Lisa, Susan and several more friends! I hear the venue is completely different.

    Finally we made it out to Local Catch Bar & Grill! The place is still rustic but very different in a good way. The service was great and lunch was delicious! I had the bacon burger - perfectly cooked with an aoili sauce and a delicious bun. Could very well be the new best burger in SoWal!

    Fantastic outdoor seating area with TVs.

    I am very excited about this new place. Chef Adam brings much talent!

    I have been there twice and food is excellent! The pork debris sandwich is awesome...i am looking forward to trying more. I also like that the place is brightened up a bit, looks cleaner than previous establishment.

    food

    it seems like people like the food. But the price of your food is outrageous. Not being mean but a shrimp po boy for $14 or an order of fries or garden salad at $5 is priced like a 5 start restuarant. i can get the biggest and best po boy sandwich at red bar for $11. i think it would help your business if your prices were more in line with the area

    Respectfully, I found the prices to be well in line with area restaurants delivering excellent food and service. Beleive me, the Chef is delivering a quality of dining that has never been in that location - not even close.

    We finally tried Local Catch last night. It was very good and we will go back. The Mrs had crab cakes and salad and thought the cakes were among the best she has had anywhere. I had the fish tacos with chips and pico de gallo on the side. Outstanding-the chips were made fresh in the kitchen. The pico portion was a little thin for the amount of chips provided, but the critique stops there. Our meal consisted of a coke and three import beers plus food and came in about $43. Not a bad price for these parts, and considering the food was superior to most, it was a good value, in my opinion. Service was excellent as well. Well done, Local Catch!

    I agree. Five of us ate there on Monday night, and everyone's food was delicious- I highly recommend the garlic spinach as a side. And the nachos with the pulled pork. And the shrimp poor boy. Prices in line with everything else on 30A for dinner. I had never sat foot in that building in any of the previous restaurant ventures, but from what our friends said, it is really cleaned up and totally different- for the better.

    Which reminds me- there are drinks named after the predecessor places- you can order a Snapperhead, a Ballyhoo, I forget the others. Cute.

    So glad all have enjoyed as I have. Adjustments can always be made here and there, but the attention to the food detail, and bar drinks are currently above expectation. I hope they continue to be a viable source for great food on 30-A! I think I have had half of the menu by now, all delicious, binging on the amazing pork nacho's of course!

    I had the crabcake three days in a row, but I think I'm going to get the nachos tonight! They ARE amazing!

    Basically, the postings re Local Catch have boiled down to two reactions:
    (1) the food is good
    (2) the food is overpriced
    I ate there for the first time today (lunch).
    I agree with both comments.
    Menu prices should be reduced at least $1-$2 per item.
