A nice local place is Papi's. It is reasonably priced, but very good. It is a favorite of locals and tourist alike. Located in the Boca del Rio area on the road to the ferry. San Pedro has many great resturants...and don't forget the "street food" on the town square. My personal favorite resturant is Caliente's located in the Spindrift Hotel. Reasonably priced lunches and wonderful Dinner menu. Mickey's Place is really good...the Wednesday Burrito Special for lunch is very special. BBQ at the San Pedro Lions Club Friday and Saturday night is a great bargain. Arrive early for the Chicken in broth. Wonderful!!! With the hot competition for resturant business...the unspecial resturant quickly folds.
Gone fishing!!

I have done TONS of searches.. but was really interested in places the locals go. I figure if they continue going to the same places then they MUST be good. Know what I mean?

As the owner of a restaurant, I may be considered biased, but hear me out:
Define "local"
Do you refer to people who live here year round (yet might not be born Belizean), or do you want to know places visited by the "indigenous" San Pedranos.
Your Answer: they are virtually the same spots!
Places that are popular with tourists are equally popular with locals (Belizean and gringos alike)if for no other reason than to mingle with you visitors to our island. The board can sometimes make it seem that a restaurant is either a tourist place or a local place. But anyone who runs a business will certainly understand that no sucessful business plan would set out to cater to only a limited segment of its potential customer base. So in answer to your question, any place resgularly refered to on this board as good can safely be regarded as a place "locals" head for when seeking a good meal. Hope this helps! I say; do a search for the best restaurants and get your fork ready!!

I appreciate all the help.. I was referring to local meaning the people that live there year round. AsI continue to search and view responses, it seems that there are nothing but rave reviews. We will be there for two weeks starting July 1 and hopefully we can try them all.

Hope to see you while you are here, I am glad I could help. I am stuck here waiting for the phone man to arrive, and being on here is my way of avoiding doing other work.... see: even in paradise procastinating on websites is allowed.
All the best,
