An eclectic gathering of the finest ways to enjoy what we are blessed to have on our very own doorstep. You can find on our menu or Special's board local items like Florida Lobster, many varieties of local Seafood. Join us for a feast of seafood paired with a wonderful and relaxed atmosphere.

    This restaurant is a hidden gem. They have a beautiful bar/ restaurant. The menu is filled with a wide variety of food. The appetizers are delicious. My hubby and I had the grilled octopus. My only negative is that it was skimpy. They should’ve added another piece or two. There was only one! Our friends had crab cakes. The dinners were quite sizable . This will continue to be our go to restaurant when we want to get away from Marathon.

    We went to dinner at 5:30 and had made a reservation, although it wasn't busy, so a reservation wasn't necessary. Food was very good. Wait staff was attentive but not overly so.

    Easy parking, reservation seated right away, wide selection on bar and kitchen options. We enjoyed the lobster Mac n cheese and shrimp cocktail for starters. We all would recommend our dinners of the seafood risotto, grouper, filet mignon, and mahi— everyone in our family agreed we would be happy to come back for more! Caramel cheesecake and key lime pie came home with us for later and lived up to the rest of the meal.

    Nice place. Food was good. It was a Monday night so it was pretty empty. Overall it was good. I probably wouldn’t go back just because of the number of better dinning experiences at the same price point.

    This was a well prepared and plated meal! We had a large party of adults snd it was an unexpected delight! We appreciated the inside air conditioned space. We all enjoyed the excellent service and food! If you are tired of pub food and want a nice meal with a nice cocktail or glass of wine- we highly recommend the Ocean Grill.

    The Ocean Grill was one of our favorite restaurants we visited on our stay to Key West. The level of service and quality of the food was fantastic and we feel like everyone should have them on their list of places to eat while visiting Key West. The ceviche was the best we’ve ever had and the main entrees were fantastic. Don’t miss this place on your visit to Key West!

    The filet was under cooked and lacked flavor. Underwhelming to say the least. The Gorgonzola was hard and over cooked. Shrimp and grits were so, so! I had a question as we were leaving and a server grabbed the manager and he was very put off that I had bothered him. Will not return!

    The bottomless mimosa is HUGE!!! And they keep you topped off. Food was excellent; I don’t like grits, and ended up trying a bite of my husbands shrimp and cheesy grits. Yup. I ordered an extra bowl of it, it was THAT GOOD!!! 110% recommend.

    We were concerned at first because there seemed to be no one there (it IS off-season in Key West, after all, however). We decided to give it a go and were not disappointed: the food was superb! Really enjoyed it.

    Waitress seemed uninterested in serving us and hostess seats us at a table directly in doorway I asked if we could sit at another table that was available to where I was told no it’s reserved and no one ever sat there it was still empty when we left actually there was only 2 tables in use aside from us the whole time we were there the food was very bland and when I asked for salt & pepper it was never brought to us our table was wobbling so the bus boy put paper under it very bad experience we came for our 10 th anniversary and where underwhelmed

    Delicious brunch with bottomless drinks. The eggs benedict was perfect. When it said ham, I was skeptical but it was soooo good. The bloody was flavorful and the mimosa has good sparkling wine not cheap stuff like a lot of restaurants put in mimosas. I couldn’t even drink one because they’re so big. Very generous with their portions. Staff was friendly and restaurant was clean. Great location just off Duval tucked into a shopping area. Look forward to returning!
