Oceanside at the Omni ... not fancy at all but comfortable. Food was tasty and service was good.

Previous menu was more to our liking. Quite expensive compared to our many previous visits. Not likely to return as often.

Our meal was very good. We had grouper with rice and roasted carrots. Tried to sub rice for mashed potatoes but they had run out. Little overpriced especially since rice was side dish but still tasty and looking out at ocean while eating is what vacation is all about. Also our waiter Perry was great!

We had requested indoor seating, but it was hardly indoor. 2 large doors were wide open, allowing a rather brisk breeze (wind) into the indoor seating area. We had been seated right near one of the open doors, and I had to switch places with my husband (who tolerates cold much better than I do). The manager closed 1 of the 2 doors for us. I understand that this is a poolside venue, but the indoor seating section should have been "indoors". They didn't have "Zero" beer, and my king crab legs arrived cut in half, which made them dry and tasteless. A waste of $39. I ordered a 9 oz glass of wine, but there was no way it was 9 oz. - pretty sure it was 6 oz (but I was charged for 9 oz). I had been drinking 9 oz glasses at other restaurants during this vacation, and this one didn't last nearly as long. A disappointing Mother's Day experience.

We didn't know what to expect so we were very pleased with our experience with the ocean view. At first blush we were surprised by how the outdoor dining felt as if we were eating on a poolside patio. However, our server Rachel was such a fun server and the view of the sunset was so romantic our perception changed in a big way as the evening progressed. Then the food arrived! My husband ordered a Caesar salad and we both ordered the "Dina shrimp entree. The sauce on the wonderfully fresh local shrimp was "to die for" as they say and will bring us back for this same dish again. We ordered the banana pudding desert and loved every silky smooth bite. We're local so this has been added to our A list for places to take guests for dinner! There will be sea birds trying to join your table from time to time but it's all a part of being oceanside.

What a wonderful place to eat. Rachel and Charlie were so helpful with our meals, helping us with our choices. We didn’t wait long for our food and it was so tasty. Awesome place to eat, I would eat there again.

The food was decent but somewhat over priced for what you got. To be expected somewhat for a resort. The service was awful. 20 minutes to be greeted. Asked 3 times for water. Asked for the check multiple times. If you are going to charge $30 for a sale and $18 for a glass of wine you expect a bit more

The fish was excellent. As it should be at a fish restaurant; however, in what culinary world is a $45 entree served with rice and two pieces of corn on the cob! Good grief last time checked they are both carbs. Astonishing.

Food was high quality and very flavorsome. Service the opposite. Hostess grunted at us and didn’t lift her head off her arm while talking to us... took 15 mins to order a drink and 45 mins for food to come - which all came at the same time - appetizers and mains. I’d expect a lot more from the Omni.

Made reservations at 5pm and seating immediately. Our waitress took our order for our drinks and brought out within a few minutes. She then took our ordered, that took 30 minutes to come out for chicken tenders (that were overcooked), chicken wings and fried shrimp. The food wasn’t warm. Overall, the service was not the best and food was overpriced.

The service was terrible. We waited 10 minutes just to get water, then another 10 minutes for the server to take our drink order. It was not crowded and there seemed to be plenty of servers in the restaurant. I would not go back there again.

The worst meal that we had on our vacation to Omni Amelia Island. Had lunch there a few days prior and it was alright. This dinner was terrible. Both my wife and I had fish that was barely edible. Corn on the cob tasted like it had been sitting on a buffet all day. In addition, the meal was very expensive. They should stick to the lunch menu. We won't make that mistake again, there better options just a short drive away.

Despite the many poor reviews, my wife wanted to celebrate our anniversary with a water view. So we booked a reservation at the Oceanside. What a mistake. We were seated and after waiting for 30 minutes, we left. No one ever came to our table. This isn't a big restaurant, maybe 20 tables at most. Pathetic is too kind to describe this poorly run establishment. One star is inappropriate for this place.

Very over-priced. Nice, helpful waitress. Excellent quality fish, but unimaginative and lame preparations; way too expensive. My daughter had the special with Mahi Mahi ($30) and I had the grouper ($45) - exact same preparation- plain rice, not cooked well, and a couple of small, plain corn cobs.

Definitely needed more servers for the amount of tables in the restaurant. We waited at least 10-15 before anyone came and greeted us at our table. We ordered oysters and they were dropped off at our table with no plates and nothing to accompany them like crackers or cocktail sauce. The food was average and definitely expensive for the portions. We were staying at the hotel so it was very convenient for us to eat at this restaurant. Will probably not return.

We had a great dinner by the ocean. Ordered the Shrimp Basket, Short Ribs, Noodle bowl and a kids chicken dinner. The waitress came by to ask how it was and we commented that the Noodle bowl was a little strange, and she agreed, she brought out a complimentary desert to make up for it, which was so kind without us even asking.

Food and atmosphere was awesome.

thanks

The experience was mediocre at best. After a long day on the road we were looking forward to a nice meal in a nice setting. What we got was disappointing. The food was adequate. The wait staff were less than efficient. The space was cool and drafty. Could have been a better experience with a bit of effort.

Entrees are rather small for the price. Disappointed that the crab cake entree looked more like an appetizer. Margarita was served in an old fashion glass.
