Went for Fathers Day. As always, we all enjoyed our meal. Always very good, consistent quality food/dishes. Only issue is that we would wanted to eat outside as inside is a bit small but otherwise great experience. Don’t forget to order Kelly lime pie for dessert!

It was our first time there. Staff was very nice. Place was smaller than I thought , but nice. Food was very good except for the swordfish. Needed a knife to cut it , and that’s not a good thing. Way over cooked. Everything else was great.

Good variety of meat and seafood on the menu. The ambiance was good. An enjoyable night out, and they accept the Foodie Card for a discount.

This was my second time eating at the south ocean grill. I had the Mexican corn, which I have been trying to duplicate since my first visit there. Don’t go without trying it. My Rib steak was like butter and the baked potato was perfect. My wife’s scallops and risotto excellent as well. I pride myself as being a pretty good cook, so when I go out I tend not to have great expectations. Dining at the south ocean grill makes me envious for everything put on our table was the kind of meal I strive to make.

We had spaghetti with seafood . The shrimp were the size you use for salad-tiny. The lobster was negligible and a few scallops. The sauce was like cream of tomato soup. The staff were polite hard working.

First walked in smelled like low tide... My wife & I had the calamari APPETIZER. It was FANTASTIC. ENTREE my wife had Thai noodles swap the beef with chicken. Was spicy but in a good way. I had Sea Scallops &shrimp with risotto it was very very good BUT the shrimp was so small I had to laugh. Service was GREAT 👍

We were looking for a Restauraunt with fish on the menu. South Ocean grill was a great choice! At noontime, we were the only guests and were invited to choose anywhere we preferred to be seated. The hostess gave us plenty of time to order and was gracious in answering any of our questions. For an appetizer, we shared their Grilled artichoke. It arrived sizzling hot! The portion included 3 halves with the choke removed. A very good deal for the price and for sharing. It was scrumptious! It came with a Mayo type dip which was tasty but definitely not necessary. For our entree, we both ordered their pan seared scallops. The presentation included a large rimed bowl and in it just the right amount of delicious, creamy risotto sprinkled with tiny sweet shrimp and a touch of spinach surrounded by 4 sea scallops prepared to perfection! Well portioned meal and great service!

Food was excellent from apps to entrees. Steaks were cooked to perfection, although a friend ordered a fish entree med/rare but was delivered well done. A nice evening with party of 6 with drinks and a bit of everything from their menu, overall it was a good evening. We just felt a bit rushed, and I mentioned we weren’t in a rush. We were still eating apps when we were staring down our entrees. That’s not good in my eyes. I’ll go back, but will not order my meal until I’m done with apps. Guessing that closing is around 9:30-10pm being the table was being cleaned off and around us @9pm. That’s another reason for feeling rushed out.
Good local spot without the village crowds.

Intimate venue where we celebrated Bon G's Birthday last Tuesday. Open Table rezzy honored! Maybe 6 tables with only 1 server that evening causing slight delays in service but our server was up to the task and was great considering the circumstances. They have a limited menu but covers all the bases. Drinks were good and appys and mains delish. Something for everyone! We enjoyed our meal and will def return.

Mussels in white wine bland, Mussels (3) with small rocks. My dates Medium Fillet Mignon served Rare/cold. Took 2 additional tries for Medium. My tasty Scallops, shrimp risotto served warm not hot. Uncomfortable chairs, sitting under a speaker. Disappointing experience totally.

An excellent hidden gem in East Patchogue! Food and drinks are amazing! My only suggestion is the smaller mussels for the appetizer. They were a little to big for my liking.
