Helping You Eat Healthier

                         Review #17

Welcome to our seventeenth review of restaurants and farm markets in our healthy eating series. This is a great restaurant that serves up creative delicious dishes showcasing local seasonal produce or seafood. They were listed on "13 Best Brunch Places in Virginia" in Virginia Is For Lovers Travel Blog



Bay Local Eatery

Bay Local Eatery was established with the local community in mind; everything they serve is made in-house using locally sourced produce, meats and seafood. They like to describe their culinary style as "Coastal Southern", taking advantage of everything that the region has to offer. Bay Local Eatery prides themselves in making everything fresh and in-house every day while never pulling anything out of a bag and putting it into a fryer. They love to be creative in the most delicious way possible.

Bay Local's menu was inspired from a collection of family recipes and local favorites. They have a brunch and dinner menu; on these menus you will find many deliciously creative items. The brunch menu includes items such as appetizers, house favorites, omelets, benedicts, burgers, sandwiches, lettuce wraps and salads. Their dinner menu includes items such as shareable appetizers, house favorites, tacos, fresh chowder of the day, lettuce wraps, burgers, sandwiches and salads. They do have some gluten-free and vegetarian items on their menu and you are also able to substitute your bun to a gluten free bun for a small extra charge. Their menus also offer a couple cold press juices such as the Exotica that consists of apple, orange, kiwi, carrot, melon, strawberry and mint. Some favorite dishes on the menu are any of the benedicts; the favorite benedicts are the garden bennie, crab cake bennie and the bay local bennie. Another favorite item on the menu is the Bay Three Way, an assorted platter or homemade chicken salad, tuna salad, hummus, arugula, mixed greens, vegetables and fruit with garlic toasted pita points. Their menu changes with the season and features "fresh-ials" which are fresh specials that showcase seasonal produce or seafood. You can find the "fresh-ials" on the chalkboard in the restaurant offering delicious specials for the day.

For a great delicious meal with a warm and welcoming vibe, be sure to check out Bay Local Eatery. Since the ambiance is charming, warm and inviting, it is usually pretty busy and can be a little loud from everyone's laughter, but it is still an enjoyable meal! They are located at 2917 Shore Drive in Virginia Beach. They serve brunch 7 days a week from 7:00am-3:00pm, and dinner Thursday through Saturday from 5:00pm-11:00pm. Also a second location will be opening up soon in the spring in the Linkhorn Shoppes on Laskin Road in Virginia Beach.
