We found Local Ocean on an expedition to buy dungeness crab meat, but decided we had to come back to sample the menu. A very wise decision on our part! We've been back every time we're in Newport; and every time, we've been delighted! Fish tacos? Yum! Crab po'boy? Outstanding! Crab cakes? To die for! There's not been a dish that did not delight. It's a little spendy, but it's worth every penny. Treat yourself to something special. And, we recommend that you get there early, cuz it fills up fast.

Four of us stayed 2 nights in a local B & B and when we asked the hosts for a dinner restaurant suggestion they immediately suggested Local Ocean saying they ate there often. We loved the atmosphere, the employees and the food was absolutely delicious. We ended up eating both nights here and are now craving another meal.....everything we tried was fresh, beautifully presented and a delight to the palette. Don't hesitate on this one!

The fish is excellent. Some of the preparations have changed since we were here 3 years ago. My grilled halibut was just great, but being served on top a bed of soba (Japanese noodles), edamame, bacon, some vegetables I thought didn't complement (or compliment) the fish as well as it might have done.

In the mood for fresh seafood? Local Ocean. Name says it all.
Yes, there's usually a wait for a table except in mid-winter, but a stroll along the pier almost opposite is a great way to fill in the time, and the food is worth the wait.
Tried many dishes on their menu and it's hard to pick a favorite. Their crab cakes are delicious--and their fresh oysters, and their fish and chips..and their wraps, well, my daughter travels from afar for those! Leave room for the berry parfait which is big enough for two to share.
The service is quick and friendly, and they even let your dog sit with you at the outside tables! If you get the chance to sit at the "Chefs' table" (aka the bar), you have built-in entertainment while you wait..plus you may learn a thing or two about cooking seafood! I highly recommend this restaurant, and the view of the fishing boats and distant bridge is an added bonus.

Get here before the lunch crowd but it's worth the wait anyway. We had crab cakes and the crab po-boy which were both excellent. The fresh seafood and local ingredients make this place special. They have a good fresh seafood counter if you want to take some food home for cooking.
