We enjoy hosting well planned events at Local on Lakeshore. With our unique multi-level layout, it is important for potential guests to understand we are somewhat limited in the size of groups that we can comfortably host, and serve at one time.

In addition, it is important to understand our deposit, payment and service charge structure so that budgeting and planning your event will be successful. 

Thank you.

Please note: In the Summer months (June - September) Summerland Waterfront Hotel Guests with large groups; if we are unable to accommodate your group size, this does not necessarily mean that an entire group can walk in and be seated together without a reservation. It also best to speak with a Local Team Member who can provide appropriate reservation dining times and table size availability.

Group Size

We may accommodate based upon availability groups of up to 24 people. Groups 25 and larger would require a complete buy-out on the date of reservation.

We may accommodate a maximum of 24 guests in our Upper Restaurant area which also features a small patio for a reception, or after dinner cocktails. Dinner would be served inside. The patio in this area is seasonal friendly.

Our Waterfront Patio can accommodate up to 30 Guests. This space requires a minimum dollar spend, which may include a $1500 site fee depending on the nature, date and time of the booking.

Note: For larger group sizes we suggest you contact the adjacent Summerland Waterfront Hotel and ask about the availability of their ballroom space which can comfortably accommodate up to 75 guests. SWR Sales & Catering Manager Lisa Jaager can be contacted at 250.494.8180 or
