Local Ocean Seafoods

213 SE Bay Boulevard, Newport, OR - (541) 574-7959
Local Ocean is the best seafood restaurant in Newport. Dine early or during the week, or pass the time waiting for a table strolling along the waterfront, inspecting the fishing boats. Try the pan-fried Yaquina oysters, a smoked salmon salad, or a fillet of something that was swimming that day.

Halibut's dizzyingly good panzanella salad is made with skewers of grilled halibut, scrumptious, crisp-cooked ciabatta bread and roasted vegetables, crumbly local cheese, and greens in a tangy vinaigrette.

There is no variety to the dessert menu, but that's OK, because the one dessert (other than house-made ice cream) is terrific: lemon shortcake smothered with local berries and whipped cream.

Local Ocean is also a seafood market. Each label for the super-fresh fish notes where the fish was caught, how it was caught, and which fishing bought caught it.

Steamer clams around here are quite different from steamers in the Northeast. These siphonless clams are served in a heady broth with garlic bread for sopping.

The crab po' boy is dressed with a green chili avocado puree, and the roll is grilled and crusted with parmesan. We added a grilled poblano to the mix. Wonderful!

Frizzled onions are simply some of the best onion rings to be had anywhere!

Local Ocean faces Yaquina Bay. No surprise: pan-fried Yaquina oysters are stunningly good.

Of the many dishes we sampled at Local Ocean, none surpassed the salad laced with house-smoked salmon and topped with toasted hazelnuts.

There is one, and only one, dessert in the house: a shortbread parfait rippled with local berries.

There are a few seats facing the open kitchen, along with tables inside and, if the weather cooperates, outside.

If you have to wait for a table (and you will), pass the time inspecting the fishing fleet across the street.

There is a breathtaking freshness about the pearly white meat in Local Ocean's crab cake, its ocean brio accentuated by the crunchy fennel slaw that comes alongside.

Stylish, brash, and on the verge of arrogant, Local Ocean really does serve some of the best seafood along the coast.

A seat at the bar provides a fantastic view of the open kitchen.

It was mesmerizing to watch the creation of Fishwives Stew, a slumgullion of crab, shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels, oysters, etc., etc.

Fish tacos are made with the day's local catch, whatever that may be. On this day, it was ling cod, the creamy sweetness of which was so nicely framed by hot salsa.
