I was looking specifically for fresh crab. As I was on business, I was flying solo. Decided to try Local Ocean Seafood. I sat upstairs at the bar and was very comfortable. Staff was great, atmosphere very nice yet casual, views abounding and my crab, perfect! Going back for dinner tonight.

Fresh and served quickly. Had crab chowder and fish tacos with a cold glass of dry white wine. Was alone and felt right at home. Casual spot and crowded but the hostesses gave me a nice table at the window and no one rushed me. Servers were excellent and folks of all ages seemed to be having a good time.... More

THE crab was delicious. great view, pleasant service. You need to make a reservation. They only take a few reservations so call early. We had a table by the window with a great view of the harbor. The restaurant is crowded and a bit touristy but still is fun.

A friend recommended this restaurant very highly. We had fish & chips, but got it To Go after seeing the frenetic activity, the very crowded tables, and hearing the noise level. Apparently there is more dining area upstairs, which we didn't see, so it may be calmer up there, I don't know. We carried our food off to the beach,... More

We ate here for lunch and dinner. Lunch down stairs and dinner upstairs on a three day stay in Newport. We liked the lunch so much we went back for dinner upstairs. Reservations are a must on weekends. Had the Crab Po Boy for lunch and the Tuna Mignon for dinner. Oyster shooters were excellent. Loved the sunset from our... More

Hadn't read the reviews, so i guess we got lucky. Managed to get a window seat on a weekday afternoon. Nice menu. I loved The crab; fresh from the docks. My wife had less luck with her fish n' chips. 2nd floor seating, so nice view of the docks.

After our last visit 2 years ago, this is still the highest quality in freshness we've experienced. The intent to have locally sourced ingredients is what some might consider obsessive. When it comes to eating out, I don't find that kind of care obsessive - but more often expensive. Thus, I don't find it overpriced. Nice harbor views available. Better... More

Our group of 7 ate here after touring (shopping) in Newport. The food was delicious and we had corner seating upstairs where everyone had a view of the bay. It was crowded but they took our reservation and we went to see the sea lions nearby and returned in 1/2 hour. I'll eat here again when in Newport.

The seafood was good, and the view was excellent but the cost of the food was too high for what we received. The wine list was sparse but we made due. I wouldn't go back due to cost and small portions.

We stopped by because it was highly rated, but we were told we needed reservations. The fresh counter looked good but the prices looked higher than elsewhere and we found other good restaurants around.
