Food was all cold. One of us ordered a bone in steak and it came out with no bone. Someone did come over and gave a discount for it. Would never eat here again. Could not believe how cold all the food was including the lobster.
Food and atmosphere are great. We enjoyed the live music. The servers appear to be short staffed. We waited until our steak was cold waiting on a glass of wine that never came as our server attended to “regulars” continually. Management did take some off the bill, but it made an otherwise good experience into a poor one. I would try it once more hoping this was an isolated experience.
Top of the list for outstanding atmosphere, with great service and wonderful food . Local favorite!
Awesome food and service. Great ambiance. Will be going back again
Our server was amazing
Hi Jennifer! Thanks so much for the great review! Can I please ask who your server was so we can give him accolades for a job well done! We appreciate your business and look forward to your next visit!
Always a great choice! Delicious and great service. Sometimes we do the early bird special also!
The food was wonderful, the service not so much. We went on a very busy night, the waitress was very overwhelmed and treated us as if we were a bother. I confronted her about her attitude toward us and her response was "well, I'm really busy so..yeah" and walked away. It was only my husband and I, and we are typically very easy going, but the appetizer we ordered required plates which she did not give us and she rolled her eyes when we didn't accept her suggestion on the night's specials. We finally got an apology once the bill came. She even said herself "At least the food was good." Yup, accurate. Everyone else we encounter was wonderful, but sadly sometimes one person can ruin and experience.
The service was unbelievably terrible. For example, when the server finally brought my dinner, he just set it at the edge of the table as he went by....
Great place but mostly for older people. Service was just ok, took awhile to get my drink and half my table had finished their first cocktail before I got mine. Ended up having two drinks at once....one glass of wine (shared bottle with friends) and one cocktail. Food was good and I would eat there again. I got the Chicken Piccata which was very good, but I am glad my server mentioned it came with red sauce pasta on the side.....they need to have that description in the menu because all the piccata's I have had over the years never come with a red sauce pasta...either the caper lemon butter sauce on noodles or an alfredo or even mashed potatoes. Everything was very good and I understand that most of the restaurants around here have been short staffed so I just need to enjoy the fact that our area is open and thriving!
Always have a great time at the Ocean Club! Food was delicious and service was amazing.
We are locals that used to be one of my favorite restaurants have not been in about a year and a half took my fiancé there for her birthday was quite shocked it was so loud with four different tables with several children small children at it everybody was screaming and yelling over the man playing the music was amazing .the food taste was awesome the presentation was absolutely absurdOne small scoop of mashed potatoes one small scoop of green beans three small pieces of meat and two cold shrimp for one of their Premier specials for the surf and turf taste of the food was great presentation was terrible it look like it was from Cracker Barrel something you were not expect that price and ambience music was amazing service was terrible overall subpar experience will not be back until after summer once everybody leaves
Cici was an AMAZING server, Michael was an amazing musician, the bar tender was fantastic the food was DELICIOUS. Valet was ON THE SPOT. The whole experience was perfect!
They were short staffed and we were seated 20 minutes before anyone took our drink order. After that, things went well. Food was delicious.
The food was very average and so was the service. We have eaten here numerous times and thought it could have been better.
On our visit, the restaurant was understaffed, which lead to significant service issues. Price is excessive (and unwarranted) compared to what was delivered and there are plenty of better options in the area.
They have an early dinner special menu that is a great value. Especially in a resort area. Disappointed they didn't have the chargrilled oysters listed as an appetizer on the menu, but all and all we were very pleased with dinner. Excellent service and attentive staff.
Our party of 10 was served with excellence and we enjoyed great food and music too.
This was absolutely a 5 star restaurant, I had the Grouper Almondine and it was cooked to perfection! My wife had the shrimp scampi with pasta which was just as good. The staff was second to none. Complimentary valet parking was great, the only issue was they didn't have the char grilled oysters as advertised as an appetizer but maybe next time !!
While I was aware that this was not related to Masto’s Ocean Club, my expectations were optimistic given the reviews. The food was average to good and I would have been satisfied if the price was more in line with the actual offering. This is not a rant, but I am disappointed.
We’ve been coming here for over 20 years. Best place for consistent delicious food, great service, nice wines and wonderful ambiance. Love it!
We were so glad we stumbled upon this place! My husband and I got an early dinner out and this place was awesome! We took advantage of the early bird special (2 for 1 entrees) and tried the crab bisque and fried green tomatoes. Everything was delicious! We sat at the bar and the bartender was so friendly and personable. We definitely recommend!!
My fish was ok but did not have a lot of taste! First time this has ever happened! I have been coming there many years! Might be time to add some new fish recipes! Everything else was great!!
Fine dinning feel and incredible seafood. Grouper was spectacular and deep fried lobster tail was unique in presentation and perfectly done. Also tried the tenderloin with crab and shrimp - loved the sauce.
The service was too fast, right after appetizers the next minute our entree. The sweet tea was watered down and the food was okay but not worth 90.00 . When I go to a restaurant like this I don’t want to feel rushed out we didn’t have time to enjoy our 1st time experience there. And there was no Sunday 5pm entertainment they advertised
Always a great meal!! One of our favorites!!
We’ve eaten at The Ocean Club on vacation in the past. This time we took several friends. I must say it was the best experience. All of our entrees were special and delicious. And the live music and dancing were the most unexpected treat. We’ve already decided we’ll go back on our next trip!!
Sat outside on nice patio backing up to a small pond with fish and turtles. Service was outstanding- he was attentive, engaging, and very kind to my kids despite the older crowd. Didn’t realize it was 2 for 1 entrees for dinner before 6pm- amazing. Food was excellent. Would definitely return.
Great food great service we will definitely go back
We went out for a special occasion and I had alerted the restaurant online and in person about the occasion. Due to the poor service and ok (not outstanding) food, I don’t recommend this restaurant.
We went for the early bird. Portion size was perfect. Grouper Amandine was wonderful. Finished the experience with Key Lime Pie. Love this restaurant.
We had a great time
The restaurant needs updating, as it looks (and smells) like it hasn't been since the 80's. The drinks were not well made and the food is overpriced for what it is. We were very disappointed.
Understaffed for the crowd. 8p reservation. Waited 15 min just to be greeted. Didn't get a drink delivered to table until 835. If it had been staffed that night would've given at least 4 if not 5 stars. Food was very good.
Great prices for early diners. Twofers. Live music and dancing also.
Good food. Good value. Went during the 2 for 1 special. Would recommend. Good for families. Sat on the outdoor deck and it was nice and quiet when inside had a band playing.
Really pretty place for dinner!
We absolutely love this restaurant! So good and staff is great!
We really enjoyed the live music and dance floor. The grouper was some of the best we have ever tasted. We were disappointed that the hostess,bar tenders and several staff members did not wear mask, we are still in a pandemic.
We liked it. The Early Bird Special from 5 to 6 is awesome! It's a nice break from paying crazy high prices from all the area restaurants and of course we still tip off the full amount. We both had the grouper almondine and it was great. The green beans were very flavorful. The wild rice was just okay. The valet worker was very nice and outgoing. This will be a regular stop for us when we visit Destin.
