we stopped in after sea lion watching because we read that it was rated the best place to eat in Newport, we were not disappointed. Our food was great and service was good. It was a little hot inside but it was hot outside also. I had the crab Po boy and my friend had the fish wrap, both were... More

We had one of our best dinners here during a recent two week visit to Oregon. Despite being busy the service was good. I recommend sitting upstairs for the best view of the harbor. We had the crab soup, Molqueca, a Brazilian seafood stew/soup and grilled Halibut. Everything was very delicious. Highly recommend this eatery.

We were in town the other night and I was on a mission for some good fish tacos. We ended up here. The tacos were good, but the place is definitely not kid friendly. Their kids menu consisted of 3 items, none of which my toddler would have eaten. Also they did not have any type of a kids cup... More

This restaurant is first among peers down near the water in Newport. But beware about dropping in without a reservation or you are in for a (possibly long) wait. The menu selection is big. We had the Fishwife's Stew and the crab cakes. Although we have yet to meet the match of South Carolina crab cakes, these are quite good... More

My husband and I have eaten here several times and never disappointed. It's a small, bustling place with harbor view. The menu has a good variety of dishes from basic seafood to more complex. I highly recommend Local Ocean if you are visiting Newport or a local.

For land locked people, we tend to go overboard when we get to coastal areas where there is a plethora of seafood choices. For anyone traveling the Oregon coast and happen to venture to Newport, you gotta go to Local Ocean Seafoods! Yeah, I know there are a lot of good ratings for this restaurant out there, and in this... More

If you want to enjoy the freshest seafood on the Oregon Coast, Local Oceans is the place. As the restaurant sits right on bay front where all the fishing boats come in with their catches teach day the freshness of their food is guaranteed. As you enjoy your meal you can view Yaquina Harbor and enjoy the song of the... More

An attractive restaurant on the bayfront with excellent views from the second floor. I highly recommend the crab stew--creamy with large chunks of crab. Another recommendation is the oyster and spinach salad. I've never seen another like it--delicious. We had lunch there and were seated immediately.

Every time I am anywhere near Newport, OR I do what I can to make sure it includes a trip to Local Ocean Seafoods. There is plenty of standard fare (and nothing wrong with that) Northwest coast seafood places but when you are looking for creative and inventive, locally-sourced seafood, you can't do better than Local Oceans Seafoods. The dishes... More

Very nice restaurant with a friendly staff. Our tastes are a bit pedestrian for this restaurant but we were able to find a very delicious entree. We had the crab chowder it was just ok. Husband had the halibut with noodles and veggies. He thought it was good. I had the crab cakes which were also very good.

Thank Jane J
