This place used to be packed.....and on a Saturday night....was empty...totally empty.
Maybe 4 or 5 tables outside were occupied....but the inside was like a morgue.

Food was over salted......and not very tasty....
Our waiter, Eddie was wonderful.....great attitude and was attentive.
However.....even out of 'season'.....restaurants in South Florida....especially seafood restaurants should be
packed....
After tasting the food....we now know why....no way we are driving 40 min to this place ever again

Not bad, not good- average. I probably wouldn’t return due to the other options in the area. $60 for a single Alaskan king crab leg.

Lobster encrusted halibut was delicious! We went on Mother’s Day at 5 which we were thankful for. The weather prevented the restaurant from using their outside seating so it was extremely tough accommodating everyone. But you never would have known it - service & food were outstanding!

The Hostess was the only negative experience. She did NOT check me in for the table of 5!!! I therefore got a nasty gram from Open Table, and had to prove that we were there!!!

Not Nice at all.

I would recommend the Ocean Grill , however, the wait staff service needs training. The server that we had that evening was not not prepared, did not know the specials, could not give recommendation , was so soft spoken that we could hear what he was saying, we had to ask him several time to repeat again...overall it a two star.

We really enjoyed our food, however the service was terrible. Our waiter never took our dinner order so the owner finally came out to help us, and then when the food was delivered they delivered part of the order and we had to wait about 10 minutes for two dinners. [We expected them to at least apologize and/or buy a round of drinks, but nothing.] The setting is very nice (near boats), however there was some loud music coming from the adjacent restaurant that competed with the music here. We assumed this was all due to the restaurant being very busy, and we will try it again b/c great quality of food.

Excellent food, accommodating for last minute reservation.
Kids food came quick but then we were asked if we wanted our food to go in? Meaning they hadn’t started making it? When dining with kids, food needs to come quick! We will definitely be dining here again!

We have been there 3 times. First time we sat outside and poor service. The restaurant was fairly empty but due to low staffing, the waiter was over loaded. Second time, we sat inside and Johnson was fantastic! Third time was NOT a charm. After water service NO ONE even said hello for nearly 10 minutes. My husband finally got up and went to the bar for drinks. Waitress finally came and was very apologetic. She said the hostess had not told her that she had our table. No less than 5 servers walked
by our table and not one said "hello, is anyone waiting on you?" Not sure we will go back. Too bad...nice
place and view.

We sat outside. The weather was perfect. It was nice to feel the energy of live music from inside. They had a speaker set up outside to hear the music. It was lively and fun. It was not busy on the restaurant side or outside. Our waiter could have been more attentive. We asked for bread when he brought our wine. It took a while but he finally came with some plain bread and indicated that the garlic bread was not ready but gave us plain bread until it was ready. That was a nice gesture. We had silverware but no napkins. We had to ask for the host for one. We had to wait awhile for our food and when it was brought out he again said garlic bread would be coming. I was almost finished my meal before it finally came out. We both ordered Chicken Parmesan. Portion size was large and it was delicious. It took a while for our waiter to bring the desert tray. Because of the music we didn’t mind waiting too much but would have otherwise. Overall we had a good experience and will come back.

My expectations were pretty high.
The service was poor, the food was average (we got sushi).
We sat outdoors and it was wonderful - would consider going back just for the patio, but will probably choose a restaurant around there with the same outside area because the food just wasn't worth it.

Food was good, especially the assorted seafood appetizer. We waited quite a while for appetizer, but then entree came very quickly after that. Was not very crowded when we arrived so the wait shouldn’t have been that long??

We’ve eaten there several times and never had a problem and will go back again I’m sure

Our service was poor. When one in our party decided the sauce on a dish would not be her choice, she requested a different sauce. The waiter told her that she would like the sauce and that was it. When it came, she sent it back. A higher up gave her what she asked for.

We had reservations, but later we rec'd an admonition that we didn't appear for our appt. that was definitely not the case. We had to ask for silverware a couple of times. Service was slow, traffic past our booth was non stop. The very worst dining experience we ever had. We will not be back!!!

For the second time in three visits (one last December and one in March) they did not have any of the Champagne that was on the wine list, blaming the distributor. The had other Champagne that wasn't on the list and initially wanted to charge double the price of those on the wine list for a comparable champagne - upon complaining they reduced the price to the comparable champagne on the list.

Draw you own conclusions as to why they didn't have what was on the list but other Champagne but it seems obvious to me !

The place seemed too quiet and did not have the atmosphere or number of people that we were used to in the past - next stage closure in my view.
