“Best seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Probably one of the best and freshest seafood restaurants in Newport. However usually a long wait to get in and very noisy.

Great grilled calamari, stew and the rest. Such a delight. Great service and beers. Makes you want to cook seafood this well at home.

“Great Fish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Tuna Minion is fabulous! A thick piece of tuna wrapped in bacon and seared...served over fresh veggies and frizzled onions....YUM!
Fish Tacos are amazing. Salmon is always a good choice. Great for dinner! A favorite spot to locals.

“Good food, but chose somewhere else if you're really hungry!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

We chose this place based on the reviews. After driving for hours, we were really hungry and local seafood sounded great. We ordered fish and chips. The fish was delicious, but the one small fillet of fish was not very big. The plate was mostly fries/coleslaw and not much fish. The catch of the day was rockfish and felt that for $16/plate there should of been more fish. My child's plate of shrimp was more like a small snack. Worth the try, but we will go elsewhere next time.

“A bit Spendy but good...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

Local Ocean Seafood is located on the main drag, in the historic section of Newport near the harbor. We asked for a recommendation for the 'best fresh seafood' place in town. Our hotel recommended it and one other place, this one-in her mind, being the better of the two. This place was -to us- "ok." I can't complain about it, just wasn't what I expected. We considered ourselves lucky to just "walk in" and get a table. It was against the kitchen cooktop wall, not at the window, and very tight seating. We ordered Fish & Chips. The food was properly prepared (but under seasoned) and hot, but for my taste there was a limited menu-I was expecting more exotic fishes and preparations. F&C was not the idea I had in mind for dinner!
I consider this place on the pricey side, but others might not. The staff was friendly and service was brisk even though the place was packed. (It's very small and compact in seating). It was not "comfortable" nor was it a "relaxing" experience. I imagine it's a highly recommended venue, so that explains why at an early hour (5pm) it was so crowded. Although it was an adequate meal, I wouldn't choose to go back.
