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
always great food and service! been going there for years
Great experience. All food was delicious
Excellent food , service . Love going to ocean club always an excellent experience!!
I chose the Ocean Club as the place to celebrate a dear friend’s birthday. Having been there many times in the last decade, I remembered how good it was and wanted to pass that along. Every year I travel to the area during June with three life long friends. While there we celebrate our friend Maddie’s birthday. The food was not up to the standard that I remember. Maddie wanted a pina colada and was told they were not making frozen drinks. For her birthday dessert she had the choice of cheesecake or key lime pie. She chose the cheesecake and instead was given key lime pie because they were out of cheesecake. We were there for the early dinner seating so how could they be out?? We were also following the appropriate dress code and were surprised to see people come in in tank tops and ball caps. The only thing that was really good about our experience was our waiter. He was friendly and attentive. Otherwise, the whole experience would have been forgettable. I hope that should we choose to return our experience will be better.
We love the Ocean Club. Ordered the grouper and it was excellent! Service was fantastic- their wait staff is very experienced and they know their customers. The Ocean Club interior, however, is due for an update.
Service was terrible!!
Music and valet top notch
Last dinner of a girls trip, good time by all.
I took the family here for our first night of vacation. Very good food. Like many restaurants at the moment, they seemed a bit short staffed and it took quite a while to get our food, but when it came it was very good.
Good ok. Service slow, waiter tried to seem attentive but didn’t really listen, food was slow and the waiter said they wanted to make sure it was all hot, then the food was just warm. It took 16 minutes to get the Bill!
Our waiter was very, very nice but untrained (for example, he poured the requisite wine taste when we ordered a bottle but then just sat the bottle on the table for us to pour our own drinks - I’m certain the young man didn’t know that it’s expected that he then pour the drinks after the wine has been approved) .
The restaurant vibe is high-end but the details aren’t there. The food was just okay. The calamari was chewy and we sent it back but our fish entrees were surprisingly good. The sides of rice and green beans weren’t worth eating.
I think this restaurant could be great with better trained staff, more attention to cleanliness, and a revamped menu.
The ambiance was great. They brought our appetizers long before our drinks. The calamari was fried in very old oil and was fowl! It was a huge disappointment.
Living in a tourist town, I love anywhere that takes reservations but the food and service were exceptional
Very good food great service I haven’t been here in a few years but will be back only issue was limited menu and they were out of some dishes.
We had dinner at Ocean's Wednesday and Friday. It is the place to be Wednesday night. FUN!
Band was fantastic Wednesday. Their song choices were perfect.
Band (single guy) Friday night was very enjoyable. Mostly slow dancing for couples until later into the evening. Then dancing for all.
I ate the same dish both nights, chicken picatta. Tasted great both nights but was sick for 3 + house Friday night - until it was completely out of my system. Very unpleasant. Also had a reaction to MSG Friday night? Didn't have either issue Wednesday night.
Service was a little spotty as we were seated about 5-10 minutes before a waiter came by. A couple of people in our party had gumbo and it was not good at all. My fish entree was very good. Expect more based on the prices and reputation of this restaurant.
Made reservation on a Tuesday night at 6:30. We arrived and were promptly seated. Restaurant appeared to be 60-75% busy. At 6:45 waiter brought water and we ordered, including a bottle of wine. Then nothing happened. At 7:15 I got up and told waiter we'd been here 45 minutes and haven't seen our wine nor bread. I said please deliver the wine ASAP. The table near us, which arrived earlier, still hadn't seen their food either. At 7:30 we walked out. In one hour, we only got one glass of water. Life's too short for terrible service.
Great restaurant. We really enjoyed our dinner. Service was very good b
Ocean Club never disappoints! Always so delicious!
This was the worst service I have had in a long time. Spending 300 for dinner and got ignored the whole time..the manager isn't any help either..do not recommend
Soooooo. Where else can you dine and listen to a great band.... which is right in the middle of the restaurant.... and dancing too.... we started with a dozen oysters and champagne.... yummy.. wine prices very reasonable ... had a classic wedge salad with a verdiccio... finished with veal piccata ..... all the food was fine ... a bit old school... along with the crowd.... just saying... any way go for apps and drinks along with dancing.... fun place! Oh yeah the beautiful slender hostess... (description for identifying purposes only)...was by far the best I’ve encountered in a very long time ... she new what was happening in that restaurant at all times.... wish i could hire her myself... give her a raise...
Wonderful time! Food was delicious and enjoyed the live music.
Excellent food. Very attentive server. Enjoyed choice of live entertainment.
Enjoyed our evening. Michael was a wonderful server.
The owner was very rude to my friend and told us to leave after a $600 bill. Never in my life experienced something like this. Still in shock!
Interesting, extremely old-school restaurant! We came by the recommendation of someone we chatted with randomly on another night of our vacation. The clientele is definitely older, and the dated dishes reflect that. Decent, but bland and overpriced. They serve the exact same frozen dinner rolls that were served in the retirement home dining room I used to work at. :) I'm not saying don't go, just don't have high expectations for food that is going to rock your world! It's a pretty location and fun people watching -- totally stepping back in time.
Great meal and great service. Early bird before 6:00 is quite the deal.
Great food and the service was excellent.
The Ocean Club never disappoints. Whether you want steak or seafood they have the best you can offer. And their drink selections are top notch!
Food was fair. Not as good as it used to be there. Probably won’t go back. Staff was friendly and accommodating. We were first seated in noisy area and they moved us to a quieter area.
always popular, great food at a reasonable price,
The drinks, calamari and dessert were fabulous; the main course was abundant but without much flavor. We didn’t plan on getting the Early Bird Specials, which made the meal very reasonable; but the veal and chicken, although in large quantity, seemed to be made for someone who wasn’t looking for very exciting food.
great service and excellent food for the early menu.
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!
