Went for an evening meal. But the food was average. More of a pub than a place for a meal. Australian Venue Co. own other pubs, such as the Vincent that are better for meals. I would suggest going to one of those instead.

About The Local Port Melbourne

Grab a Pint Looking for a traditional pub? The Local in Port Melbourne is it. Everything from the dark wood bar to the leather booths to the dated carpet says this is a pub’s pub. And it is. There are several big screen TVs and projectors, meaning you can catch the game while savouring one of the many beers on tap. There are happy hour drink specials during the week, making The Local the choice for — you guessed it — Port Melbourne locals. You can grab a traditional Aussie pub meal here, including sausages and mash, steak or a chicken parma. The Mexican parma is a hit too. There are several salad options, including chicken or calamari, for something a little on the lighter side. For sports and beer fanatics, The Local has it all: a relaxed and casual atmosphere where what you see is what you get. The Bay Street location and proximity to the bay is definitely a bonus too. Best dish: Cumberland sausages and mash
