Newport: Local Ocean Seafoods

We ate our first meal in Newport at Local Ocean Seafoods.  It had good reviews and a looooooong wait.  Maybe our expectations were too high, but we were disappointed.  Nice presentation, but the food was lacking in flavor.  The most memorable part of the meal for me was the fennel slaw, which came with several of the items we ordered including the crab cakes and soup.  There was outdoor seating available, but we ate inside where it was warmer.  The décor was a little different.  Elegant in some ways, more like a fish market in others.  I'd consider going back for the slaw and soup, but we'd steer clear of the fish and chips, fish wrap, and burger next time.
