Who are we?

Local Eatery and Pub is a farm to table driven restaurant focusing on families, but offering options for the more adventurous diners. Opened in February of 2011 by Derek Means and Craig Baker, we feature hand-crafted, freshly made artisan foods, locally crafted ales and cocktails, using all-natural and organic ingredients when available.

Locally Supported Agriculture

Supportling local farmers helps build a vibrant local economy as well as minimizes our environmental foot-print. Using local farms, we are able to travel to the farms, interact with the families, and ensure that the farming practices demonstrate respect for the land and the animals. Continuing to grow these relationships will ultimately help build a dynamic local community with its own food culture.

Why Local?

Our mission is to be a socially and environmentally responsible business in an eco-friendly environment serving healthy regional, great tasting, fresh foods that are grown, raised and produced by local artisans.

We have high standards and our goal is to sell the highest quality products we possibly can at a value competitive price offering. We define these standards by evaluating all of our ingredients for freshness, safety, nutritive value and appearance.

The Local is in the process of obtaining our certifiction for being a “Green” restaurant from the Green Restaurant Association. We would be the first independently owned restaurant in Indiana to obtain this certification.

You never know what you’ll find on the menu at The Local. That’s one of the things that keeps me coming back on occasions when I’m ready for something unusual.

Great atmosphere and very friendly staff, the type that remember your name. The braised beef tongue cheesesteak is phenomenal, but the best choices are always on the specials menu, which changes every Friday.

A comfortable Westfield newcomer delivers earthy fare in family-friendly ways—and offers some surprising takes on the classics. (read more)
