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

We ate here while on vacation. They were very busy, but they got us in fairly quickly - its no wonder they're busy...the food was delicious, and the ambiance is really cool. I would say that Local Ocean and Alloro in Bandon were the 2 best places we ate while on vacation - both delicious!

Wonderful seafood. Just what I came to enjoy on the coast. Busy and crowded atmosphere. Wait staff not to my liking. Not at all. Hardly worth tipping.

Enjoy a huge crab or a delectable Smoked Salmon salad, at a casual eatery along the inner harbor. They do have view seating on second floor. Service was good and our dishes were all delicious. Seafood is their specialty, so don't expect to see much other than that.

My husband wanted to try this restaurant. It was very busy at the time we went there. We were able to get a table in a short time, which was great. The menu was okay. There was nothing specatular on the menu that I really wanted to try. You have to like seafood to eat here. My sons only had... More

The previous reviews are correct; the food here is fantastic! (If somewhat overpriced.) We had the: Dungeness crab bisque - excellent Yaquina bay oysters appetizer - cooked perfectly but very small portion (3 oysters) - order the salad with the oysters for a much better value) Dungeness crab po' boy with added cheddar - delicious, we wanted more! Fish wrap... More

We read about this place and were prepared to have a long walk while we waited for a table. What we didn't know is that Local Ocean Seafoods very recently doubled their size by opening up a dining room on the second floor, with terrific views - which meant that we barely had enough time to read a few of...

Visited Local Ocean with friends. Saw lots of restaurants in the neighborhood that didn't attract me...But this restaurant. We were seated at the upper floor with great views at the local harbour. Kind staff, nice Dutch guy at the bar. The food was amazing and can compete with restaurants in downtown Manhattan. We had Fishwives stew, Grilled Halibut and crab.... More

Excellent seafood with a pleasant location right across the street from the harbor with a fine harbor view. I had the Tuna Mignon ($18), a large lightly seared chunk of bacon wrapped tuna on a bed of greens and fine strings of crispy onions. It was wonderful. See photo.

Local Ocean has long been a favorite but now they've doubled our pleasure! They've expanded to upstairs with a great view of the harbor at Newport. A working fishing fleet is docked right in front of you. And they have a nice little bar up there where you can have a glass while waiting for your table! (They'll text you... More
