Dependably Excellent

For honestly fresh seafood prepared well, Local Ocean does not disappoint. The only down side is a decided lack of ambiance and noise. Worth it though!

Went in during lunch with my boyfriend and we both had the fish n chips. We weren't in pressed at all. The fish n chips were very bland. The fries were alright. Nothing had seasoning. Felt like we wasted our money...Plus side is that we sat upstairs with a pretty view.

This is our go-to place to grab lunch when we take a trip to the coast to visit the museum with the kids. The food is just so fresh! My favorite is the tacos with the fennel slaw. Just delicious! The stew is also very delicious. It was recommended to us by locals and we enjoy it much more than... More

I heard that this was the best place for seafood, so I had to try it. Surprisingly enough I didn't think it was worth the price. I got steamed clams for $14 that I wouldn't order again (and I love clams) and I also ordered a fish taco that was good but very spicy. I tried my boyfriends fish and... More

Our family was back in Newport a year later and didn't hesitate to stop in Local Ocean for dinner - on BOTH nights of our stay. The saffron based Rockfish "stew" was plentiful and flavorful aside from the oyster mushrooms. They were tough and you struggled to even cut them with a serrated butter knife. The second night we tried... More

Local Ocean Seafood is the place on the Oregon Coast to get seafood direct from the docks, conveniently located across the street. OMG was it great. You can hear the sea lions squabbling over dock space while walking in the door. Newly added upstairs dining overlooks the harbor. The food matched the setting with innovative dishes. I had the Brazilian... More

This was the second time we have been to Local Fresh, both times we were not disappointed. Fresh Fresh. The seafood is labeled in the counter display (were you can buy fish or shellfish to take home) as to which fish boat brought the catch in. I would make your reservations early or eat earlier as they get very busy... More

We had dinner upstairs and were presented with a very upscale ambience with a view of the harbor. Staff were attentive and friendly. The menu presented a wide selection of fresh seafood and everyone should be able to find something they would like. We decided on 2 appetizers and a sandwich to share. Our choices: albacore poke which was divine... More

Each serving we ordered had its own unique ingredients... it was one of those meals where you look closely to discern the source of all the delicious flavors and bright colors. Our compliments to the chef!

We came here one evening after a visit to the aquarium. The view is very nice. Erin was our server and she was very friendly and on it. We had the oyster shooters which were great. The steamer clams were yummy. They came in a nice broth with big chunks of bread. The crab cakes were delicious too! I had... More
