We always enjoy dining at local ocean. We know the food is going to be great and it has just a really nice atmosphere. When weather permits, it's very nice to sit outside and enjoy the area.

Hands down the best restaurant in Newport. Check out their fresh fish counter and then find the boat that caught them just across the street at the dock!!! My favorite is the Grilled Rockfish sandwich and the Grilled Rock Cod over Grilled Peaches with roasted Pablano... truly amazing but only available during Peach 🍑 season.

Amazing! We were in Newport for 5 nights and ate here once, then came back to their fish counter for 2 more nights (to cook at the condo where we were staying). The fish, crab, etc is as fresh as you will find unless you catch it yourself. Restaurant you can eat downstairs or upstairs, same menu but upstairs is... More

Local Ocean was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. We chose to take a nice evening stroll down and check it out. We were warned that there is typically a wait so we were prepared to do so. We went and checked in, the wait was going to be 45 mins, no problem. The downstairs is set up kind... More

Great service from Annie!! Food was excellent and original! The only request would be for a larger variety of salads as a side dish to main dish rather than ordering French fried

Two girlfriends and I visited Newport and asked locals for a recommendation for lunch. The answer; the crab cakes at Local Ocean on the Bayfront. The Dungeness crab cakes were amazing, but we did not stop there. We also ordered the Oyster and Spinach Salad (yummy), the Nicoise Salad (good) and the Smoked Salmon Salad (marginal). We enjoyed our lunch... More

This was by far the best food we had on our entire vacation. Ordered the steamed clams and the crab pro boy sandwich for lunch. Both were cooked to perfection and very fresh. So very glad we chose to eat our lunch here. The view from upstairs was great as well.

Fantastic choices on menu and the best fresh seafood case for take-home fish in town. Dine upstairs for a beautiful view of the harbor.

Local Ocean continues to offer the best seafood in Newport. Now, with a quieter, and minimally more formal, upstairs dining room, it does what it does better than anyone else.
