Called from Beverly Beach State Park on Sunday aftenoon 10/10/21 for a pickup order stating that we were 20-30 minutes from their locale and to not have the orders completed before that time. The person taking the call said that they could not do advanced...orders but that normally it would take 20 to 30 minutes to prepare the order and that they would text me when finished. Along with our meals we asked for unsalted fries. Within 10 minutes of our call we had a text message that the order was ready. Within 1 minute of the text we had a call saying that the fries come presalted???? Wow this is a first--even a fast food restaurant will offer unsalted fires. When we finally returned to Beverly Beach and proceeded to eat our meals--they were mediocre at best not what I expected for $35.00. First and last time at this eatery.More

The freshest seafood in town. Located in the working wharf area of Newport. Upstairs is the restaurant. Excellent seafood and excellent service. You can not go wrong by dinning there. We started with Oysters. Then each of us had a seafood selection. Delicious. IF you...are in Newport, absolutely go there!More

I found this restaurant in Newport but unfortunately they were closed the day we were there. We decided to drive back to Newport another for dinner and it did not disappoint! I ordered several small plates and my husband ordered the Ahi tuna. Everything was...fantastic! The locally grown ingredients complimented the fish perfectly. It was the best meal we’ve eaten in a long time.More

Great food. Great service. A fun vibe. Just can’t say enough about the excellent meal and experience today at this place. It of course helped that the weather was gorgeous — the place opens to the out of doors so that while inside you feel...as though you are dining al fresco. The salad Nicoise came with a generous serving of delicious, perfectly seared tuna. The mustard balsamic vinaigrette dressed a mix of frisée and other greens. With a glass of white Bordeaux it was scrumptious.More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Local Ocean and returned the following day for lunch. Reservations a must if you expect to dine at a certain time, due to the popularity of this restaurant. Our dinners were superb (we both had...halibut, prepared two different ways) and for lunch the next day we ordered several appetizers/small bites and cocktails and it was a wonderful meal! Highly recommended. We'll return whenever we can.More

This is by far the best seafood on the Oregon coast. We eat here four or five times a year. The menu changes and always surprises with new dishes and flavors. Word of caution though. Plan your trip in advance. Especially your weekend plans. Friday...and Saturday are booked by midweek. You won’t get a table on these days by walk in.More

Local Ocean Seafoods is a perfect seaside restaurant. Fun views of a working boat harbor; great staff; fun art on the walls; and wonderful flavors in our meal. The salmon was outstanding and the Albacore tuna wrapped in Bacon was distinctively delicious. There were a...lot of locals in the restaurant which is always a good sign of a great place.More

We have our own parking lot but it is often full. Usually parking on the East side of the bayfront is easier to find than the West side.

We run the halibut and peaches dish as soon as fresh halibut comes in (usually late July) and run it through the end of August. You can find it on our weekly specials menu.
