Local Eatery is the Lake Region's exclusive farm-to-table restaurant offering the finest options in local, seasonal cuisine under the direction of Chef Kevin Halligan.

Smith Orchard has operated under Rob and Wende Richter since 1985 and offers a picturesque setting to enjoy the autumn harvest and learn about the varieties of apples grown at the orchard.

Established in August 2012, Local Eatery, a quaint local restaurant that seats 36 diners providing quality NH and New England products and produce, features a year-round menu using as much local food as Chef Kevin Halligan can find. Chef Halligan is a 2002 graduate of the New England Culinary Institute, and owner of Laconia Village Bakery since 2007. His goal was to provide top quality meals made from local, organic produce and grass-fed, naturally raised meats and poultry. He began offering a daily "local" special lunch at the bakery, which proved to be the most popular menu item. Even through the winter, produce will be preserved from summer surplus or greenhouse grown by special arrangement with local farmers.
