Ocean Grill & Bar
Had dinner there last night with some friends. Had no idea what to expect. Really only chose it because I could book on open table app, and the had patio dining.
Well I’m glad I did. The food was fantastic and the service was great! All 5 people had nothing but rave things to say about their meals.
The calamari appetizer was so tasty. The bread they bring to the table so good. My husband had the seafood risotto and he said it was delicious. I had the clams and mussels chorizo - so good. Definitely try it out!
FROM THE MUSSELS LOBSTER AND SKIRT STEAK EVERYONE IN OUR PARTY ENJOYED THEIR FOOD AND ATMOSPHERE WE ATE OUTSIDE VERY NICE AND CLEAN SETTING
Had to send the drinks back. Mixed very badly. Crab cakes were tastless and fell apart into crumbs.
Johnny our server was great and accommodating. Food was delicious. Recommend the snapper special!
The Snapper was phenominal! Highly recommend.
Excellent meal and superb service! The cioppino and lobster tail with crabmeat and hollandaise were awesome! Service excellent, setting lovely and very COVID-conscious. Definitely a repeat!!
Excellent brunch. $8 for all you can drink mimosas and bloody Marys is a great deal especially for key West. Food is great she service is extremely attentive.
Good food with outdoor seating. Service was prompt and efficient. Tables were not very separated, and it’s a busy place.
Excellent ambiance. Food great.
Very good meals that were enormous in size. Very impressed with the food and service was good. We sat on the patio. Made reservation for a 50th birthday celebration which was stated on the reservation. The waiter never mentioned a birthday which most waiters will note when it's on a reservation. The only thing that was a total turn off was the bathrooms were messy and unkept. I mentioned this to the waiter to let him know. Overall great food experience-be ready to eat!!
Great service and delicious food! The lobster bisque was perfect!
This was a great place to eat on Key West. Excellent food and dog friendly. Great service. A hidden gem. Tucked away on the main drag of Duval Street in a back alley. Highly recommend it. Pricey but worth it.
We are outside at a small table for 2. Our server, Augustine, was great. Our meals were fantastic
Great service, food and location.
Able to sit outside which was good. Didn’t have great service or food- just average . Grits were best food we ordered. Would not go back
Visiting the keys. Stopped in for dinner. Waiter was a bit slow and bit real friendly but food was delicious!
Bottomless mimosas and Bloody Mary drinks were very good! Great value too! The French toast was so very good!
We all had seafood, everyone enjoyed their choices. Nice atmosphere, indoor and outdoor dining.
Lobster was huge and delicious! Loved the spinach, shrimp, artichoke dip. Great find.
Friend visiting from TX wanted excellent seafood - everyone was pleased with their dishes and the truffle fries are amazing! Happy hour drink specials rounded out the evening - but no one left room for dessert!
Wait staff was very attentive. Food was average so felt that the prices were a little high for the quality of the food.
Lovely evening! Service was good (Augustin was attentive), minimal corkage fee and food was good as well (although we ordered a skirt steak medium and it came out very rare). Overall, positive experience.
Great atmosphere. Hidden gem off the end of Duval. All of our food was great tasting and believe we had a lot. Christmas dinner was perfect. It was a bit chilly and they had nice heat lamps outside for us to stay warm and cozy.
Food was very good. We had jumbo lump crab cakes, although they were not "jumbo lump" crab they were still delish. Also had the tomato and fresh mozzarella salad, delish as well. Would definitely return when in Key West.
We went their for brunch. My teens had pancakes and French toast. I had bottomless mimosa and eggs. The food was very good!
Food was good when it finally came. Service was SLOW for drinks especially (not bar, I’m talking water). Forgot our appetizer & brought it halfway through dinner after we told them
Not to worry about it.
The crab cakes were amazing and it was very good service
Great food, a bit pricey, ok ambience, decent service. Not crowded I assume because of pandemic.
The food was fantastic! Lobster bisque was phenomenal. The garlic infused loaf of sliced bread was great. Artichoke/Spinach/lobster dip was great too. Meals were awesome. But, best of all was Vasko the manager from ?? Ask him where... He was nice, professional, and attentive. We had a wonderful time. Ocean is a step off of Duval St. Totally worth it! You won’t be disappointed. Really cool vibe, and the place was super clean and upscale, comfortable decor. I’m always looking for decent reviews because I rely on them. This was our first time to the keys. We will be back. And we’ll definitely be going back to Ocean Grill and Bar. Thanks, Vasko! We will see you again!!!!
P.s. family review,. Wife and I are in our mid 40’s, and two kids age 19, 12.
We are from Pennsylvania, and go out to dine a lot. Hope it helps anyone reading this.
Super service with excellent food!
Perfect for all occasions! Food was delicious and very nice attentive waiters!
Awesome food and service. Large portions and super tasty
$7.95 bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys! ‘Nuff said.
Amazing food/atmosphere and the service was fantastic!!
The food was excellent & our Server (Relu) was outstanding!
The restaurant is lovely with a modern artsy upscale feel. It was a crisp December night; but dining outside by candlelight with the propane heaters & fairy lights felt cozy, intimate, & special. I do wish the host would have seated the 5 loud drunk guys inside away from the couples trying to have a romantic dinner. The ladies room was dirty & poorly maintained. It had those brown paper towels that make your hands smell like lunch bags & that awful pink pearlescent soap from the middle school bathroom. The floors & baseboards were old & dirty. The hideous catalog print wallpaper feels cheap & outdated. The whole room needs a good scrub & remodel. Our server was a polite young man. He made no suggestions & wasn’t particularly attentive or quick. However, our cocktails were perfectly balanced & beautifully presented. The Pinot noir wine complemented the fresh mozzarella, ripe tomatoes and balsamic in the caprese salad perfectly. We ordered mahi but they were out. We asked if they could prepare the red snapper with the Parmesan crust and it was truly one of the best things I’ve ever eaten! The crust was crunchy & full of flavor. The fish was perfectly cooked. It tasted fresh, was white & flaky. They served it over al dente carrots & gorgeous red peppers with mashed potatoes. The veggies all tasted garden fresh. The plate was colorful & beautiful. The bartender & cook here are true artists! The host, server, & bathroom seemed out of character for a place where you can easily spend $200 on dinner for 2. We are foodies & this was a meal I’d put against Michelin star restaurants we have visited in Manhattan, San Diego, San Francisco, Sidney, and Toronto. What a great surprise!
We had outdoor seating. It was well spaced. The food was fantastic and the portions were ample. Marginal service, as they were busy. A bit of a bill mix up at the end but was resolved quickly. Would definitely return
Great food great drinks! Outdoor dining was perfect! Service is excellent! Going back for lunch!
Love their wine pour! Best on the island!!
This is our 4 th year of dining here all winter.
