Native Noshing: Review of Local Station

While the Town of Braselton places a major emphasis on the reimagining of its Historic Downtown area, local residents – like those living in nearby Traditions of Braselton – get to reap the rewards as new businesses pop up regularly. From chic boutiques to engaging eateries, Downtown Braselton is the place to be! In the heart of it all, in what once served as a service station on main street, is a fantastic destination for foodies… Local Station. Showcasing a revolving seasonal menu of chef-prepared tapas and entrees, as well as an impressive list of hand-crafted cocktails, Local Station has quickly become a fan favorite in the little over a year since it first opened its doors in Spring 2017.
Although the menu does change from time to time – and you should definitely be sure to listen to the evening’s specials – some of the items you’ll be likely to find on the appetizer menu include a delightful Lobster-Crab-and-Shrimp Dip served with pita chips, Brisket Sliders on Hawaiian Rolls, Prince Edward Island Mussels steamed in craft beer, and Seared Ahi Tuna with a Wasabi Aioli. If you’re in the mood for a salad, Local Station’s signature salad by the same name will not disappoint – featuring butter leaf lettuce, pistachios, Granny Smith apples, and smoked blue cheese tossed in balsamic vinaigrette. Chicken, Shrimp or Steak can be added to any salad to make it a meal. The Lobster Roll is a major crowd pleaser with cold water lobster topped with lemon herb aioli and served atop a toasted bun.
When it comes to entrees, Local Station presents an imaginative menu that includes gourmet burgers (in your choice of single, double or triple stack); build-your-own Local Station bowls beginning with a base of quinoa, grits, risotto or couscous – topped with your choice of protein and signature sauce; Shrimp & Grits (served Charleston or New Orleans-style); a selection of Steaks; Fresh Catch of the Day and more. Dining is provided in one of two interior dining rooms, at a counter overlooking the square or out on the patio.
The counter across from the bar and the patio are the perfect spots to enjoy a cocktail after a hard day’s work or an afternoon of shopping Braselton’s retail shops. Local Station’s full bar features a selection of wines, craft beers and innovative handcrafted cocktails such as the Frisky Whisky, South of the Border Mojito and many more.
Located at 108 Brassie Lane – across from the iconic Braselton Brothers Department Store, Local Station is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday noon to 9 p.m. To make a reservation, call (706) 921-4192.
