This food is terrible and service too. Had to go get our own drinks at the bar although we had a table. And... the prices were shocking given the terrible food. Eat McDonalds instead.

We only go during the half off special. The almondine catch of the day is great. Their shrimp cocktail app OMG GREAT!!!! Their steaks weren't all that but still ok. Just stick with the seafood, especially the grouper.

Dress code is resort casual for the most part. If it's a special occasion dressier clothing is still perfect. Ocean Club is in front of Tops'l resort which is about a mile east of Hidden Dunes.

Ocean Club is one of the premier, fine dining restaurants with a variety of appetizers & entrees to please everyone. We have a Sushi bar & live entertainment Wednesdays - Saturday. Wednesday nights caters to our Locals offering them an incredible discount while enjoying one of our favorite house bands - Emerald Gold. Our food and service is top notch and we offer private rooms and outside deck for special events upon booking. We do take walk-ins but prefer that you call ahead for reservation.
