Best restaurant in Oregon

Coming from Portland, designating a place "Best Restaurant in Oregon" is saying something. But Local Ocean never disappoints. Fresh oysters, rockfish, tuna, salmon and other seafood -- bought on the docks just across the street -- are the core of the dishes on the menu each day/night. Add Oregon... read more

Local Ocean came recommended by relatives, and I wasn't disappointed. A lot of things looked interesting, but I settled on the steamers and a half Dungeness crab. The steamers were as good as I've had, and the buttery bread served with it was an amazing addition. The crab was good, especially considering it was late in a not-so great season.... More

My husband was less pleased with his mean than I was (sorry I don't recall what he had). I ordered an adobo shrimp soup with side salad and we shared fish taco appetizer. Those were all yummy, so I can say the small plates for a late lunch were good. Not too long of a wait (2 PM) and nice... More

We received several recommendations for Local Ocean so we made a reservation when planning our trip. Upon arrival, we chose to dine in the quieter upstairs dining room. Dining was casual but service was attentive. We started with calamari sautéed with olives and mandarins. The dish was tender and delicious. We would definitely order it again. We had pan fried...

The food here is excellent, the seafood is very fresh. The view of the harbor from our table is beautiful. The decor and architecture is very appealing. However the snotty attitude of the greeter and the indifferent service is inexcusable. The restaurant was not busy at the time we ate, perhaps we caught them on a bad day.

We waited in line for 45 minutes and decided to get our food to go because we didn't want to wait even longer for a table to open up. Very few seating. My husband and I decided to get a "large plate" of fish and chips with coleslaw to share because it was pricey and because it said "large," we... More

Fabulous fresh fish served efficiently by friendly waitstaff. A bit on the pricy side-don't plan on sharing meals as the portions are modest. In all, delicious and
