Wednesday nights are Locals Night at Ocean Club. We attend every time we are in town. Band was great, restaurant was full of energy, food and service were excellent. Go for the Grouper Ocean Club - you will not be disappointed.
Not swanky! Server didn’t even introduce herself. Food felt like it was from a country buffet. Our green beans were cooked to smithereens! We could not finish our food! Got Togo boxes, probably to trash it tomorrow! I would not have been upset had the prices reflected the presentation , quality & service of the food.
It was a great time! My friend and I needed a nice dinner just to shake things up, and we really enjoyed the food and drinks. Thank you!
Excellent food and service. We love this restaurant and come every year when we are in Destin.
First day on vacation in Santa Rosa Beach - Ocean Club is always a must! Sat at the bar - Brooke makes fabulous drinks and provides excellent service! Best deal in Destin for early dining - we are going back Wednesday for more grouper.
Food is amazing! Best grouper ever! Live music is very good and not loud. Very good compliment to the ambiance!
We don't get to make a visit to Ocean Club as often as we would like to because it's about a 50 mile drive (one way), but when we do it is so worth the drive. The food, service and ambiance are awesome. The restaurant could use a few upgrades, but it's still awesome.
Matt was a great and attentive server. Enjoyed our meal and all had a great time.
Our server must have been new! Grouper was fishy and Creme Brûlée was cold used to be one four favorite places
Food was decent atmosphere well let’s just say it’s called a “club” for a reason. Everyone watch us walk to our table and it was all eye on us! Our waitress was phenomenal and as sweet as ever gave great recommendations and very attentive.
We were in the area for vacation, liked the early bird two for one deal. Loved the fine dining atmosphere! Excellent food, large portions!
Staff was so very nice.
Great food. Great waiter. Surroundings a Little worn.
My grouper was fishy and raw in the center. It was the fish of the day so I think they were trying to move it. My son's Chicken Parmesan was inedible. We are from N.O. and eat a lot of seafood and Italian food. Ocean Club was a big disappointment. Our waitress, Ilsa, was great and helped us deal with a VERY rude LOUD table playing a card game at the next table.
This is not "fine dining" as they list them selves. The place was over crowded, with dirty tables all around and food came out luke warm. The food tasted and appeared to all "pre-made" food, like you would get a buffet. Our waiter was good. Sadly the best part of the evening was the valet, he was very polite more attentive then inside the place. I will not be going back.
Very disappointed in this experience. It was my sister’s bday - nothing special was done even it was noted in reservation, at check in and to the waiter. Service exceedingly slow, oysters had shell in them and the lobster tails were over done. Overpriced for what was delivered. On a positive note, the entertainment was really good.
Great food, excellent service. Will return when in town.
We had a wonderful time and dinner was good. We had never been to the Ocean club before and stumbled upon it when looking for a dinner that night. We lucked up on it being locals night and got to enjoy a great band with great music. Our service was wonderful and we had a lovely evening.
It was our anniversary and we had a wonderful time.
We had a great dinner and our waiter who was a young man was very nice and personable.
Food as always was fanatics! Great service as well.
Food was good but not worth the price. Also it was very loud, not really a place for a nice date.
Very nice. Enjoyed our dinner, especially the singer. He was amazing
The service was terrible. I have reason to believe it was intentional. Numerous parties that were seated after us were served before us.
Thank you so much for your honest review, Hannibal. We appreciate your feedback.
Very overpriced. Food was just ok. Steak was tough. Watched a waiter set a table something was on the table cloth he blew on it a few times with the silverware on the table. We are in COVID he should never blow on the table! He should have brushed it off with a utensil or better change it
Always consistent! Great food and service.
Seemed like an old country club. They’ve done something decently for a long time. Turning in and out customers and offering a bland yet decent menu. Can’t complain too much about food except nothing special. Service sped us along. I remember loving this place 30+ years ago. Probably because my dad danced with me to the live music. That was fun! And it’s still very good (the band or singer). If you want a family quick meal, that is good but under seasoned but makes your kids feel special, this is your place. Also good for the 80+ crowd.
Date night with my Husband ❤️
Wonderful hideaway place with great food.
Enjoyed dinner of shrimp cocktail, Caesar salad, Grouper-Ocean Club and Shrimp & Lobster Linguine Pomodoro. Quick and friendly service. Yummy food. Would definitely go again!
Had a reservation & was seated immediately. Very pleased with that. There was butter on the table along with 2 empty water glasses. Server came and we ordered drinks & an appetizer. We asked why there was butter out….server then realized that maybe she should bring bread. She was very nice and otherwise quite attentive.
The calamari appetizer was delicious. We ordered the soft shell crabs & veal piccata. The crabs were a 7 out of 10 & the veal was an 8.5 out of 10. I asked for light salt in the preparing of the veal and they heard me!!!! It was not too salty like I find so many meals to be at most places. The veal was delicious and I’d recommend it. Service started a little slow, but they were very busy and still managed to keep up pretty well. I would recommend to others to try it.
Food, service, and atmosphere was great! The view some people mention in reviews seemed to be gone as there was construction going on. Definitely would eat again and recommend!
Early bird special is honestly incredible I dont know how they afford it we can eat a 5 star meal for 2 for less than 60 is absolutely unheard of. Go here you will not regret it.
Ate here while on vacation, read the great reviews. We arrived early and ordered from the BYGO entrees- not sure if there are different efforts for the rest of the menu- but the meals were mediocre at best; the grouper seemed cooked from frozen and my husband’s veal was not good at all. Best part of the meal was the calamari that we ordered as an appetizer, and the bread. The tab (2 adults, 2 kids- one order from kid menu) was still over $200 after tip. Not impressed.
One of my favorite places! Service is always spot on!
It was fantastic. 5 stars.
Thanks so much Russell! We enjoyed your visit and appreciate the great review!
The outside garden was beautiful to view is the best part of the restaurant. We were looking forward to some wonderful fish. Instead we got over done, dried grouper that was swimming in butter with little taste. Server was nice but got very inattentive. We told the hostess it was my daughters birthday and mentioned it in the reservation and it was not acknowledged. It's a very high priced for poor quality.
Thanks so much, Fitmama for your review. I am hoping that you alerted your server to the issue and gave us the opportunity to correct it? We are sorry that you did not have a wonderful experience because that is always our goal. Please feel free to message me at 850-240-2039 for further details. I would like the opportunity to gather more information and alert our staff and earn your business back. Thank you!
Wonderful food and service. Would highly recommend this restaurant
