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.

    One of my favorite brunch places. You can't beat the $8 unlimited bloody Mary or mimosa and the filet and lobster Benedict is excellent. Service was great as usual always enjoy the nice patio.

    The actual food & beverages were wonderful. The food is a great value and the bottomless mimosas and bloody mary’s were excellent. The service was horrendous. From start to finish, we were overlooked by servers. I truly wish I had our servers name, but he never bothered to introduce himself. It wasn’t just our table experiencing this either, other tables were discussing the poor service and basically begging to get someone to pick up their cards so they could leave. It seemed fitting though, because the server automatically got 18% gratuity despite his lack of efficiency or friendliness, it wasn’t busy either. Shameful, and with the plentiful options in Key West we will keep this at the bottom of our choices the next time we are out to brunch.

    We sat outside on a pleasant evening. The calamari had a tangy-sweet chili sauce. The Seafood Risotto was full of shrimp, scallops and fish with a flavorful sauce. However, the Keylime pie was a little tart.

    The food was cold for the most part. Even the soup was barely tempered. Mrs had lobster thermidor ice cold. How when it’s put under a broiler. Our server never asked us how it was going, At the end I said the food sucked got a thumbs up and he bolted away.

    We were disappointed. We had a non attentive waiter and the food portions were small. My wedge salad- which typically is a an entire wedge- was only a quarter of a wedge- if that. The lobster mac and cheese was good, as was the mahi. For am appetizer the mac and cheese was adequate, but for dinner the fish was rather small.

    I was worried about all variants in the reviews on Open Table, especially when the reservation required a credit card to hold the table, to me that’s a bad sign. All the reviews are justified, the food is ok, nothing to get excited about. We were a party of 7 so we had a lot of appetizers and entrees, everyone “liked” theirs no one was wowed. The service, as per other reviews was mediocre, the servers seemed bothered to be working and serving us. The drinks from the bar were poor. We didn’t wait around for dessert. I agree with other reviewers that it’s overpriced for what it is, but it isn’t inedible as some have said. There are many better places to eat on the island.

    All was ok, except for the screaming homeless person who was laying on the benches and wandering around 10 feet away from us. He was screaming obscenities into his phone, didn’t make for a pleasant Christmas dinner.

    Our reservation was at 2:45. The server straight away had an attitude. He informed us he wasn’t sure why they let us come in as they close at 3! WTH !? Why did they let us make a reservation for that time? Rude. I wish we would have left and found someplace else. Will not recommend or return Merry Christmas

    Ocean Grill & BarResponded on December 29, 2022We apologize for that, we should have done better - please come back and visit us - ask for our Managers, Vasko or Jason, and we will take care of you.

    We went here on Christmas Eve just last night, the restaurant was on a quaint little street right off of Duvall. It had wonderful ambience with all the lights. There were two large parties eating outside, and they seated us outside as well because we had a dog with us. The parties had young children and they were very noisy. Oh wait or started out very friendly. We thought he was going to be good. He was not he was terrible. we we ordered a bottle of Rombauer Chardonnay to start and we also ordered our entrées at the same time no salads or apps. Our wine came in 10 minutes our dinner came exactly 1 hour later! The waiter came to our table, exactly 3 times! to take our order to serve our food and bring our wine. My husband had to go inside to pay the bill because he never came back to check on us or how our food was or brig our bill. One hour is way too long to wait for two entrées. We did not order apps or salad; Mine was just pasta with some shrimp, scallops and lobster in it. It was very delicious. My husband’s lobster Oscar was just OK. It was a bit underwhelming. Service was bad! & the waiter never apologized! It almost ruined this special night! The wine was gone by the time our food came!

    Ocean Grill & BarResponded on December 29, 2022We really apologize about your experience - that is not what we want. Unfortunately, we have no control over other guests. If you can, please email or call us with your server's name, because that is something we can address.

    We had Christmas Even dinner and loved the classic Christmas music they played and the dining room was pleasant and festive. I had the grouper wit tomato basil sauce and lemon risotto with shrimp. Everything was tasty but the shrimp were cold…like plucked off someone’s cocktail and sautéed for 10 seconds. My husband had the ahi tuna entree which he liked but felt that the portion of protein was small in comparison to the rice and kimchi. I would go back…service was decent.

    Ocean Grill & BarResponded on December 29, 2022Thank you for your feedback, it will help us improve. We will talk to the kitchen about your issues - please come back and see us soon, ask for one our Restaurant Mangers - Vasko or Jason, and we will take care of you.

    Service was decent - the waitress was pleasant and helpful and the food came quickly. But... the food was awful. Impossible to eat steak. Tasteless eggs. A smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel is an easy thing to make but somehow every element of this one was dreadful: chewy bagel, a blob of plastic instead of cream cheese, and flavourless salmon. Difficult to get wrong but this place somehow managed it. Pity as the place looks pleasant and the wait staff did well.

    The food was really, really bad. I never complain about food, and I will typically eat most anything. My entree was not edible. I can’t remember ever leaving a restaurant without eating the food, no matter how bad. This was one of the worst restaurant experiences I have ever had. Plus, it was expensive for poor quality food I’m not one to complain, but I was hoping to politely tell my waiter that my filet mignon was so tough that I could not eat it, but my full plate was whisked away without a single question as to why it was still full. Such a disappointing dining experience. I really wish I had selected a different place to dine for my one night in Kay West.

    RUDE! We walked out upon checking in. Since the general “manager” was so rude to us upon check in, we left and didn’t dine with you. We had reservations for a month, I stopped in a few days before and he gave us a crappy table in a high traffic area. Not what we asked for! When we explained this to the “general manager”, he was condescending to us. Therefore we opted to go to another restaurant which was AMAZING with excellent service and spent over $200. Maybe your manager needs to take a course in customer service. Can’t wait to tell ALL our friends about his rudeness starting HERE!

    I called for a lunch reservation yesterday. I was told in a very aggressive tone that they didn’t have any reservations until 8pm. I had my doubts and tried on OpenTable. They had many slots available. Restaurant wasn’t very busy either. Perhaps the guy didn’t like my foreign accent.
