While in oregon on holiday visiting family we had a trip to Newport so, my son could swim in the pacific and compare it to the North Sea!!! Dinner that night was at Local Ocean Seafoods (a favourite with the American side of the family) and it was amazing!! Crab was a must for 1 member of the party and... More

I had looked on Tripadvisor at the listing of restaurants in Newport and saw where Local Ocean Seafoods was rated number one. But while shopping before dinner I asked employees at several of the shops where we should eat and all of them told me "Local Ocean." So that was confirmation on the Tripadvisor ranking. We were on Bay Street... More

We went here because it had great reviews and sounded delicious! We waited over 1.5 hrs to eat here. Ordered shrimp crostini which was suppose to have "smoked salmon and goat cheese, capers, pink shrimp, boquerones, horitiki salad" First they brought the wrong food to our table twice. Then I was expecting some salmon in the meal it was the... More

They just remodeled & essentially doubled their size, so we had no wait at all. Service was good, food was delicious. Always have the crab soup. This time, followed it with a crab po'boy. Sunny day, so the big doors were open & everyone around us seemed to be enjoying the day as much as we were! Lots of good... More

I reviewed Local Ocean several years ago, but after my visit last weekend, felt the need to give them their due "props" once again. There is a reason why they receive so many good ratings. Fresh fresh fresh sea food, and not of the typical breaded and deep fried variety (thank goodness). Fish Tacos and crab cakes are a standout,... More

Wonderful find! Food from the fishing fleet comes right to the restaurant. If you are in Newport, check it out but they don't take reservations so you may want to go early.

Loved the bar upstairs and was worth the wait. Had the shrimp and salmon dish, was fantastic. Also had the prawns as an appetizer. Wonderful. Staff was good, but could have been more friendly.

Wow, had a fantastic lunch at Local Ocean on Sunday last week. Fish Tacos for me and my husband had the scallops. Everything was so fresh, delicious and presented well. Enjoyed a glass of wine from one of our favorite wineries in the Gorge - Domaine Pouillon. We sat outside on one of those lucky days you hit at the... More

We waited in the 2nd floor bar and watched the sun set on the piers, fishing boats, and Yaquina Bay. The restaurant was understandably very busy on a Saturday night so the wait was a bit longer than we expected, but the frustration melted into the charm of the old fishing front. Then we were seated, again in the bar... More

First, this is immediately across the street from the boat harbor so the outside view is excellent. It is an open air facility which can be enclosed in rainy or cold conditions. There is a row of outside seating but it is New York Style (close to your neighbor). The seafood selection is outstanding but be advised there is nothing... More
