    This is a neighborhood gem. Located in a strip mall. Interior is functional, not fancy. The food was outstanding however. Our cod and scallop dishes and sides were just right. Service was satisfactory on a busy Saturday night. When the restaurant is full or near full, it is loud.

    This is a cute restaurant in a strip mall. They were very accommodating - I was meeting my son who was in the DC area for a work event. We picked this place since it was closer to Dulles. Our server was very attentive and food was delicious. My son had the lobster roll which had huge chunks of lobster, he loved it. I had the lunch special Shrimp Poboy which was very fresh and tasty. We would recommend Ocean Paradise for sure!!

    Waitstaff was outstanding exhibiting attentiveness and knowledge of the menu. The food was well prepared with good quality fish. The only issue I had…and minor but opportunity to improve….the layout and decor. It’s just a big open room with tables with art that scale wise is too small for the space. A little planning and money on decor would go a long way in having ambiance match the level of the food. This is an undiscovered gem with good chefs and good staff…it deserves to succeed!

    My cake cakes were excellent: Jumbo lump, very little filler, not peppers, that overwhelm the sweet crab flavor. Spouse's crab stuffed shrimp were are super, according to him. Our zucchini and carrots were delicious, though I couldn't place a seasoning used. Daughter's plain pasta, was she said, just okay (not a large serving either, though they did accommodate her request for something not on the menu=plain pasta). She asked for penne (which was available as part of a listed entree; she received spaghetti.

    I've dined here about 5 or 6 times in the past year. As it has gotten more popular, things have gone downhill. Service has always been an issue and it seems like it's never going to be addressed. During our last visit the server didn't check on us once after we received our food. The owners have also decided to cram more tables in their space. Forget any thoughts of a romantic dinner if you get stuck in one of the middle tables. Not only are servers constantly walking by but people picking up food are also constantly walking by. You end up feeling like you're in everyone's way. It's a shame because the food has generally been good and this space has seen several restaurants come and go over the past several years. I was initially hopeful but I will most likely not be going back.

    First time visiting OP and it won't be the last. I grew up in seafood heaven, on the Chesapeake Bay, and I know good, fresh seafood. The presentation of each dish was outstanding and tasted as good as it looked. Waitress was very attentive, but not smothering. Prices are fair, especially for the quality of the food and portion size. If I could give it 6 stars I would!

    This quiet out of the way restaurant is a true gem! Parking is easy and staff was friendly. The calamari was tender and crab balls were outstanding! Cocktail was too expensive, but I could have opted for hh wine list instead.

    The food was not as advertised and when they brought it to me they didn’t say anything to me. I felt it was a bait and switch. I had to say something. They didn’t offer me to order something else. I will have to really think about coming back.
