Seafood
Ocean Grill & Bar is in many ways a testimony to the bounty of the sea, the adaptability of creating wonderous dishes from the vast variety of life beneath the waves and the endless multitude of flavors created by cultures all across the world using all manner of natures riches to bring out the natural beauty of seafood.

Winning many awards along the way for items like 'Butter Poached Florida lobster' and our signature dish 'Shrimp & Grits', he decided to give back much of what he has learned and create a largely seafood menu with flavors ranging from Cajun/Creole to the far East of Asia. 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.

    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.

    Quiet restaurant tucked in a small mall off of Duval Street. Very friendly wait staff and excellent service. Food is very tasty and wine was quite good. Very unhurried pace. I have been here three times and enjoyed it each time.

    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!

    Never been to this place. Heard all kinds of great things. It was OK but nothing to be overly excited about. The price for the food wasn’t up to my expectations. I’m kinda picky when paying high price for food.

    It was a nice sit down dinner. It’s at the beginning of Duval which is nice because it’s not noisy or filled with drinkers. The food was good. Its nice for a special occasion or just dinner for the night.

    With a very nice restaurant, not directly off of Duval Street tucked into a little shopping center which made the patio more pleasant. Food was cooked well and the ambience was beautiful wife got the flay and it was cooked to the right temperature I had the whole snapper both were excellent good wine selection and my cocktail called the conquistador was very tasty
