Please note this is a review of the beach bar (outside dining) not the indoor restaurant because they have different menus. Went with some friends and the general agreement was the cocktails were good. I had the frozen salted caramel (alcoholic) for $13, and my friend was raving about their key lime margarita (see pictures). As for the food, they... More

We had made a reservation several weeks in advance for a birthday celebration. Somehow the reservation got cancelled thru the site I used for the reservation ( not affiliated with the restaurant). The hostess was very gracious and found us a table in the lounge with a beautiful view. Because it was so crowded, it was noisy but we did... More

We sat on the patio and had a few cocktails (delicious mojitos!) and oysters and sushi. The sushi wasn't the best, but the oysters were fresh and the environment was great. Beautiful view of the water!

We had the Seafood Brochette for Two appetizer and it was great. Lobster pieces, shrimp, clams and mussels in a light buttery garlic and onion type sauce. It was truly large enough for two. For an entree we both had the broiled lobster served on jasmine rice with snow pea pods and a side of roasted asparagus. Couldn't have asked... More

Start with the great setting- looking right out over the ocean. Then add that the service was exceptional: friendly-attentive (but not intrusive), prompt and helpful. Finally, the food! Every item ordered was wonderfully prepared and tasted delicious. Maybe the best halibut I ever ate. And the dessert- called a Chocolate Bag- has to be experienced (seen and tasted) to be... More

The atmosphere, the food, the drinks, the view all amazing. I have to compliment it all, not one complaint. The food was delicious, they have full and half portion which allow you to try a few things without wasting food. Our server was very sweet and thorough. Everything was expedited to get people in and out but you never felt... More

I love the Ocean House! Must make a reservation almost any time of year now. Beautiful, classy atmosphere inside or fun & casual beachside. Great service. Waitstaff is always friendly & helpful. The truffle fries are to die for and the drinks are always perfect. Bento Box is a nice seafood sampler. Very good crab cake. Last visit, we had... More
