    Unattractive décor- it was unclear who it was aimed at. The food was cold, expensive to overpriced, menu not fun - who cares if the french fries are $100 if no-one orders it? Lousy burger. The only positive was how sweet the waitstaff was, but the place was so huge ( and empty!!!) that it took forever for them to accommodate any requests. Funny thing- it didn't FEEL expensive. Or classy or irresistible. Wont return.

    Didn't have enough menus for our family to look at, they ran out of mason jar cup for our drinks(so we were given plastic cups smaller size then the mason jar, and still paid full price.) Our dinner was brought out except for my sons, by the time his food came to the table we were done eating. The frozen hot chocolate was not frozen it was just chocolate milk. Terrible experience

    I came here for my birthday brunch with my date. The waitress was very nice. The food was great. They even gave me a complementary birthday Sundae. It was quiet it was clean , just overall a good ambience.

    We arrived and were seated at 8:30. We ordered our food at 8:40. By 9:20 our table was still empty. They need more help. The food was good. Burgers and fries were cold. My BLT was excellent. The frozen hot chocolate had a Minty taste to it. This our 4th time eating there and just get worse every time. Sorry. The Ocean Resort deserves better.

    Despite being very excited to try it, nothing more could have gone wrong. The wait to order seemed longer than necessary, and then they didn’t have either drink ordered. Then we ordered one app which they didn’t have (Buffalo wings) so we chose a side instead, and ordered nachos and a blt sandwich, we asked for it to all come out together. The bacon would be the thing that needed to cook the long eat…and it took over an hour to get our food. No updates in between just an MIA waiter. Then no plates to eat off of, I ended up getting up and asking at the counter since no one came back with them. Afterwards we ordered a frozen hot chocolate…this was now an hour and a half in… took about 10 mins for them to make, and then my son took a sip and said it tasted minty, it was confirmed that they had accidentally swapped the mix, and had the mint mix in the regular tub… which is a mistake but I kept thinking how lucky we were with my son severe nut allergy that the swap was mint and not the peanut butter one. Took them over 20 minutes to remake and the second one came out looking like a pile of mess when the first one had been really nicely decorated with hipped cream and prickles and choc chips. They didn’t remove anything from the bill for our troubles… didn’t check if maybe adults wanted to keep the mint one (we didn’t, but still) and the manager repeatedly walked past our table but didn’t stop even though we expressed kindly that we were waiting so long and no one was coming. Instead, he walked up to table behind us and apologized to them for waiting 10 minutes to order. From start to finish we were there for 2 hours and 20 minutes for a sandwich, app and side and one dessert . We likely will not return and it was definitely not worth the $100 despite the taste being good.

    Slow and rude service. After waiting for someone to greet us I went into the restaurant to get someone’s attention and flag them down. All staff seemed annoyed and I was made to feel unwelcome. I should have left but the drinks seemed so enticing. (Girls trip!!) After 10 mins of sitting down we were finally approached (not greeted) where we orders 2 fishbowls. Waitress said it would be awhile and that she was just “being real with us.” At that point we ordered two waters and our food because the vibe was killed and we wanted to get out of there ASAP. Good on Instagram but don’t be fooled!

    The casino itself and our room were great. However, I usually plan our stays around where we are eating. We took our daughter there for her birthday on the 18th. We literally had the worst eating experience at Serendipity. Seated at 10:15 for brunch. Waitress came at 10:20 for our drink order (3 waters, coffee and a lemonade). No drinks, no food UNTIL 11:17. When the food came, the chicken and waffles had undercooked chicken. It was pink in the middle. The waffle was like a rubber frisbee. My wife and I got the egg, BLT sandwich. The egg was cold, and the bread was not edible. They were croutons. And I’m not exaggerating. My daughter was then left with an empty drink the rest of the time. The waitress never came back until we just were so aggravated, that I demanded the check so we could leave. So many people were leaving, having never been served, or were complaining to the inept management. On my way out, I asked a woman, who appeared to be somewhat in charge, if she was a manager. She said she partly was. I proceeded to tell her about our horrible experience. Her response was clearly of no concern. She told me “Awe, I hope your day gets better.” It was enough for me to never come back to Ocean. If you are hosting a restaurant, you take responsibility for their service to your guests. And it ruined a birthday.

    The kids loved the unicorn pancakes and frozen hot chocolates. The older kids loved the spicy Bloody Mary and chicken and waffles 😉 Service staff was very kind and attentive. Music was a little loud for breakfast but the overall experience was great fun!!

    I will start by saying the police is very inviting and the staff is very friendly. Place is decorated amazing and the color scheme is awesome. Unfortunately that is where the positive reviews end. Service was atrocious from beginning to end we were handed menus and then roughly 1 minute later asked what we wanted to eat we didn’t even have a chance to look at them yet When we did order it took about 30 minutes for our food to get there and during that time we were never given utensils or napkins. My son did enjoy his chicken and waffles but my wife and I thought the waffle was rubbery and mediocre at best during that time we had other stuff we wanted to order but our server our server never came back to the table.

    Experience was awful. Went for the frozen hot chocolate and the ice chunks were so big we couldn’t even eat it. Took over an hour for our food and we got pancakes. Food was sub par for prices. Also I got a $18 Bloody Mary that tasted like tomato juice and barely any vodka. No flavor at all. I didn’t think it was possible for such an awful experience but it was. Such a waste of $160.

    My reservation was for noon. I arrived at 11:50. Our table was barely in the restaurant but more on the outskirts (awful design). We did not got our food for my party of 4 until 12:40 supposedly bc they were “waiting in the fries” that only one meal came with. I also had a note in my reservation that it was my daughter’s 11th birthday and our first time there and absolutely nothing was done. Simply put, it was a waste of time and money. PS - never in my life have I ever had a BLT sandwich that didn’t have mayo on it esp. when the menu says it will.

    By the time we got waited in at the hostess stand we were 10 minutes late for our reservation. Therefore we had to wait. Most of the time there is a grace period of 15 minutes for your arrival. The drinks they advertise are not what come to your table. I ordered the hurricane. No light up cube, no grenadine, no umbrella, no garnish. Not worth $20. A glass of water came to our table with food in it. Food took FOREVER. They said they have been open for 5-6 months. To me it looked like they opened yesterday. Server was nice and he was trying his hardest to make us happy. Would not go there again.

    Service is slow, wait service poor and floor manager is ignorant. 2nd time I tried this place and would not recommend it to anyone. On a side note, the overall business manager was nice and seemed to care about the service issue. Maybe the staff and kitchen workers need more training on customer service.

    Order was wrong. Service was non-existent, nobody asked if i wanted a coffee refill, my friends order was completely wrong, we waited an hour for our food to come after ordering. I will never go back. It was an awful experience and I will not be returning. It was very disappointing considering the NYC location is always good and consistent. They need people who are more experienced in reading directions and serving customers. Also, the only reason we booked there was because they were having a grand opening brunch which the email said was from 12-4pm. We arrived at 3pm and were told it was over. Next time, maybe send an email with the correct time and don't mislead people.

    The food was great, and the staff even better. The only thing was that the music was playing too loud to be able to talk and hear each other. The waitress found us a booth where the music wasn’t as loud, and we enjoyed that much better.

    Arrived at 11:15 for brunch, the place was NOT busy was told by server "the kitchen will be slow today we are short staffed and it's a joke just warning you ". Ordered our food at 1130am, omelet and a waffle. It arrived at our tables at 1248.pm at that point we where aggravated but hungry, food was cold. We left and will not return.

The buffalo chicken sandwich and cotton candy martini were yummy, but the Black Forest cake & strawberry shortcake sundae was INSANE. Can’t wait to come back!

    Server was amazing however we had chicken and waffles, waffles were horrible, flat and chewy, no crunch whatsoever, barely any depressions like the mix had no leavening. A real chef would not allow that to leave the kitchen, twice. The frozen hot chocolate was a joke. By time it got to the table it was all cold and no chocolate nor coffee taste. $20 wasted. Place thrives off it’s name. Nothing else but mediocre. I truly don’t appreciate a restaurant that thinks this is ok. Make an effort to produce a quality product it’s not that hard. I’d rather 1 amazing waffle than 2 terrible ones. Do better!

    The restaurant staff failed big time when it came to basic service such as setting the table with utensils and then when they did one setting was missing a fork. Service is not up to par and we were really excited about giving the restaurant a try. Price of the food does not measure up to the quality. Extremely disappointed and will not be going back.

    This is a tough review. I think we had high expectations, and it just wasn't very good. The woman who seated us was the best part of the night and our waitress was very good also. The food was, eh. I just had 3 sliders for $20. Nothing special and the bread was a bit hard. Nothing great. The ice cream was good, but everything is very expensive. Over $300 for 6 of us and 3 of us had ice tea or soda. Only 3 had a dessert. I do t know. To me, Sugar at the Hard Rock is fantastic all the way around and I guess I hoped this would be the same since we stay at Oxeans. Just a bit dissappointed.
