The food was not very good. Service was excellent.
The noise level was almost intolerable. Even though seated in the quieter room, the noise bled over and caused conversation to be difficult. I have been to this restaurant before and was taking a friend from out of town to experience it this time. The mussel appetizer was so poor that we sent it back. The mussels were small and tough and one was actually disintegrated in the shell. The Seafood bake was fair but the risotto dish was dry and gummy. Sorely disappointed and a bit embarrassed.
Ocean 60 never disappoints - wonderful food and wonderful service!
Service was excellent and so was the food.
Love the staff. Love the atmosphere. But got an overlooked steak and they are oversalting their food but quickly cooked a new one.
Love this place...same for years.
Food is excellent; appreciate the 5-7pm happy hour. One of our favorite places.
We had the appetizer of mussels and they were delicious, salads were delicious but our entrees, shrimp scampi with linguine and the baked cod were very salty! Service was excellent!
Came in on a Saturday evening with a reservation. Parking was difficult to find, but after that the rest was perfect. Great wait staff. Excellent appetizers, entrees and desserts. Fish chowder ( was called something fancier) was scrumptious. Two vegetarian options, my daughter loved the pasta. Son and husband loved the grouper.
Ocean 60 never disappoints. Fish is well prepared - flaky and moist and the sauces/toppings are not overpowering. Our go-to spot in Atlantic Beach when we are in town.
This place used to be one of the best restaurants in Jax. That is not the case anymore. Quality has fallen.
Food is dynamite. I ordered a special they just started, snapper with pepper sauce and it was one of the best I’ve ever had. If you are in Atlantic Beach and want a fantastic meal this is the place.
Great service and food!
Had a great dinner and fantastic drinks with our friends. Staff was very prompt and professional and knowledgeable. It was our second visit and will return.
Great good, great martinis and wonderful service. What else do you need?
We had been there last year (2018) for our anniversary and it was a lovely experience. We had a great waitress, the menus had a personalized one page insert wishing us a happy anniversary, we were given a champagne toast and a lovely dessert with a candle. This year, there was nothing!! Maybe our expectations were set pretty high and they not even close to being met. Needless to say, we will not be going there anymore, at least not to celebrate special occasions. Atlantic Beach is full of other wonderful restaurants!
Dear Gastrophile, We appreciate patrons of our restaurant. Your reservation booked online showed it was an anniversary for this visit AND it also showed that your last visit just a few months ago was also an anniversary when we comped drinks and dessert. For this visit we gave you happy hour prices (5-7pm) even with your 6:58 arrival. We do offer complimentary drinks to guests, cards on special occasions, candles but only on birthday cakes. Needless to say we are a business.
Idk what happened to this restaurant, but the service and food quality have gone downhill. Half full and still took over 20 minutes to get a server to table and over 40 after that to get entrees. Hen when food came the portions were smaller than usual and fish on both plates was super dry. General manager came to table after completed meal and asked what was problem. After was told problem, offered different entree if we wanted but had already been there too long. Then proceeded to bad mouth some former employees that we knew from other visits, very very unprofessional. Will probly never go back again, not because of the food quality, because every place has an off day, but because of the unprofessional and slow service
My wife and I were coming back from Atlantic blvd place and live in Ponte Vedra Beach so booked a table at Ocean 60. Parking is extremely difficult in Atlantic beach but we finally found a spot after about 10 minutes. The atmosphere is wonderful at this restaurant with a pleasant mix of early 20s to 70s. The food has been 5 star on all previous trips there but this time we both had the seafood beach bake and while the fish was good, the sauce was not up to the typical standard. It was some kind of lemon purée that had not much lemon and no flavor. We also didn’t see or taste scallops, crab, or lobster, although the cod was good. I enjoyed the string bean medley while my wife substituted those for Brussel Sprouts. She really enjoyed those, while I would use a 7 iron to relocate them 150 yards from wherever I am. 😉. It’s always a pleasure dining at Ocean 60 so we’ll return again even though the food wasn’t in the usual top form this time. Cheers
Unfortunately we were there on a night when the restaurant side was reserved for a private function. Had I known would have reserved for a different night.
The food was AMAZING. The pasta dish I ordered was one of the best I have ever had. I am not a martini drinker but I tried both of the ones my husband ordered, Sunrise (I think) and Butterfinger and they were delicious. I would have been drunk quickly if I had ordered my own! The service was perfect and attentive. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Atlantic Beach!
My husband and I have eaten many times at this restaurant. In the past it was an enjoyable pleasant quiet evening with excellent food prepared well. We had a reservation had to wait over an hour for appetizers. Chicken piccata was not even pounded or fried there was no lemon sauce just capers on a bed of Raw lettuce and a chicken breast sliced into pieces. This restaurant has gone downhill in the past year. Will not be returning.
Service was slow on a Saturday night when there were several open tables. When the food finally arrived it was warm at best. The meatloaf appeared to have fake grill marks in the meat. What a huge disappointment all around. For the money, there are a dozen better options within walking distance.
We had a wonderful evening. Excellent food and terrific service.
This was our 3rd or 4th visit, and it was delicious and fun, as always. We had a relatively early reservation so it was quiet, but "livened up" during our visit. Food was amazing, and my Coconutini deserves special mention; awesome!! Thanks, again!
Bought 4 of my college friends for a nice dinner. Everything was perfect! We were running late and I called ahead and they were so accommodating. Thank you!
Great food, some of the best seafood in town. I ate there during the week with only a half dozen tables filled and it was great. Went there on a Friday and had to shout to talk across the table. They need to add some soft surfaces to absorb sound. The tile floor/wood ceiling combination makes for a very loud dining experience.
What a great place to eat at the beach. Parking was a hassle but the service and food were terrific. My wife had the chicken piccata and I had the swordfish on the recommendation of our server and it was amazing.
The only complaint we have is the lack of adequate parking availability. Not directly the restaurant’s problem but one that the downtown Atlantic Beach area suffers from. Terrible traffic congestion. Won’t go down on weekends again.
Excellent food, service & fun (as always).
Really liked it. The food was delicious, and there was music. I had shrimp scampi, yum, and my husband had salmon. ( which he loved) It is now on our list of go to places!
Great food, great service. It was a very nice evening.
The restaurant is excellent. Beautiful atmosphere. Attentive and helpful staff, but not obtrusive. Delicious food. We asked to split a salad and it came to us on individual plates. Reasonable price, given that we ordered 2 drinks each, the salad, 2 entrees, 2 coffees, and 1 dessert. They comped the dessert because it was my husband’s birthday. My only complaint is that there was an electric guitarist playing amplified and very loudly. Fortunately, we were seated at the opposite end of the room from where he was playing. I would have preferred an acoustic guitar in this elegant space.
Received a recommendation to Ocean 60 from a local resident. It's the best dining experience I've ever had in the area! The food was outstanding (I had the vegetable pasta with chicken), the service was second to none, and the live entertainment was fantastic. I'll definitely be back!!
We eat out quite a bit, and have opportunities to eat at very nice restaurants across the country. This meal was surprisingly excellent, especially the Brussels sprouts as an appetizer. I asked the waiter could he substitute the rice on my seafood meal with Brussels sprouts, and without question he was able to get it done. You should sell that seafood dish with the option for Brussels sprouts instead of the rice.
Great food and atmosphere. The brussel sprouts are to die for!
If seeking a quiet, high quality restaurant to totally enjoy your experience, then Ocean60 is for you.
Awesome as usual!
