Great fresh local seafood!

Great spot on the north side of the bay. Lots to see walking along the boardwalk. Food and drinks are really good and reasonably priced. Traveled here twice, once as a couple and another trip with another couple and their toddler.

We went to Local with a group of 8 for lunch. They don't have many tables that accommodate 8, but worked quickly to get us seated, and offered a texting option so we could walk around the harbour while we waited, and then walked back when we got our text. The service was very friendly and attentive, great beer on... More

It wasn't my first time in Newport but my first time at Local Ocean. The seafood soup, not clam chowder was so yummy good that I took some home to Portland. I will be back for more!

We arrived early and by ALL means that was smart, given the crowd downstairs when we departed. At the embarrassingly early hour we appeared, we got one of the best seats upstairs with a killer view of the bridge. Ordered a nice glass of wine ('12 blend from Walla Walla) and looked over the menu. Ordered the seafood chowder and... More

Incredibly fresh seafood...the food comes straight off the docks. This restaurant is supporting the local fisherman. On top of that, it's delicious! Try the crab soup. One of my favorite soups of ALL time...from anywhere! The secret's out though, and now there's a pretty long line and wait. Make sure you get there early. I'm from Newport and I'm very... More

We found local ocean when we visited Newport from North Carolina back in 2010. We have been a few times since we decided to move here and it is excellent each time. It is now over twice its previous size as they added a second floor with a bar a year ago. this time we had the rockfish Italiano, which... More

People line up to eat at this place. I've been driving by for 2-3 years and seeing the crowds. When I saw that (at the time) they were number one on TA in Newport, I vowed we were going to eat there. We drove by one day in September, and the crowd didn't seem too bad. We stopped in only... More

We always make it a point to stop here if we're anywhere close on the Oregon coast. Freshest seafood, sustainable practices, superb selection, creative menu, knowledgeable/friendly staff. Just one fish taco for a late morning snack? Not a problem --- and delicious as usual. Love this place.

When you walk into the downstairs fish market, it seems nice enough, but then go upstairs and it is quite the surprise! Classy, upscale, with a great architectural design and feel. Relaxing music and lighting with a line up of windows framing the harbor, bay and famous Newport bridge. The food was amazing! We had the crab cakes, which were... More
