Newport is one of the largest working fishing ports on the West Coast and is commonly referred to as the Dungeness crab capital of the world.
Vanessa and Mike reopened the former Gino's Seafood and Deli under the new name OceanBleu at Gino's on July 3, 2010. Business hours for the fish market are 10:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily and the café is open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. seven days a week except Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Most of the seafood sold in the market and served in the café is caught locally, processed onsite, and officially recognized as sustainable. Live Dungeness crab are held in an indoor seawater tank and are a huge attraction for both kids and adults. Our crab are cooked and prepared for sale daily.
The market also offers custom in house smoked seafood products such as salmon, albacore tuna, sablefish (also known as blackcod), and oysters. In addition, it features a wide variety of other West Coast and Alaskan seafood, much of which is purchased daily from local fishermen. Much of the fish we buy is caught by hook-and-line providing some of the best quality product available, including a variety of species caught by our 33’ wooden vessel, the F/V Sea Pup. Our fish market provides one or two day shipping for any of our fish products to anywhere in the U.S. and Canada through FedEx.
The café features a menu of wonderful seafood entrees prepared by our trained professional chefs. It is popular with local residents, visitors to the area and tourists alike. From fish and chips made with the original Gino's famous batter recipe to a great selection of grilled and fried fish, to our clam chowder and seafood pastas, salads, and sandwiches, we serve some of the best seafood on the coast. We also feature an excellent kids menu!
We take great pride in serving our customers the very highest quality seafood possible. Much of our seafood is provided to our customers within a day of being caught, as a way of insuring this high quality standard.
In addition to our café and fish market, we are also available to cater your event. We cater groups of any size and can be available on short notice.
Our facility is frequently inspected by regulatory personnel and consistently receives the highest possible review scores for sanitary conditions.
Whether you join us in the café and have our chefs prepare you an amazing seafood meal, purchase from our wide selection of seafood in the market, have us FedEx seafood to family or friends, or enjoy one of our catered events, you will love the experience and the product.
