I wanted to like this place. I really really did! The food was the very good in an otherwise disappointing birthday dinner celebration for our party of 4. The front of the house was completely unorganized and service was neglectful.
Our server after taking our order disappeared for the rest of the evening. She was unfamiliar with items on the menu and did not know or even attempt to clarify questions about the preparation or ingredients of the special being offered. While ordering our food we mentioned that we would like to order drinks and needed a minute to look at the wine menu.
After a protracted wait we received our appetizers and (with the exception of having our water refilled) were not approached by any staff for 30 minutes until yet another server asked if we were ready to order dessert! Our desired wine order forgotten, along with our entrees. When I shared we hadn't even received dinner after an hour wait & that I was very frustrated by the wait. Once again nothing...no apology, no explanation. Nada!
Finally the food came out!! The food was well prepared & very tasty. Good temperature, nice sized portions. We were all pleased with our dishes. Sadly again, no one came to check on us during dinner but once we were done the bus boy promptly cleared the table & once again asked about dessert. 😒 I hope the management takes some if these reviews to heart. With proper staff training this is not a difficult fix and will go a very long way in making a good meal an equally good dining experience. Sadly, my dissapointing experience will keep us from returning.
Not as good a cut of filet Mingnon as the last time pre covid. Oil was old therefore frying was burnt on the shrimp calamari and fries. Scallops were on par. Service was slow but polite.
A friend told me they had the BEST kale salad and that was why we went. She was right, the kale salad is amazing. The rest of the food was also very good. Only disappointment was the cocktails; pricey for the small glass the punch cocktail was served in, so would probably skip that next time. But I'd definitely go back, gotta try the grilled artichokes next (which looked amazing at the table next to ours).
I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and I have many times!
The grilled artichokes are a must. Fantastic! My daughter introduced me to the place for lunch and I continue to go back for lunch and dinner.
Service was a bit slower as they got busier. Maybe there should have been a designated person to take care of the drinks and not the waiters.
Very good quality dishes as always
Good service, enjoyable dinner
Each member of our party raved over the freshness, quality and taste of the food. Received a warm greeting upon arrival and the service was excellent and friendly.
Great restaurant with great food and service. Veteran owned is a bonus. Glad I discovered this little gem. Grilled artichokes are amazing as well as the crab cakes. Will definitely be back.
Filet mignon and scallops risotto were both excellent !
We are never disappointed at South Ocean Grill! Amazing food, welcoming atmosphere and interesting cocktails! Love it EVERY time we dine there!
I was surprised that there were no many specials, also i went for Dinner and no bread was offered.
Everything was perfect! The Blueberry Moscow mule was on point. The crab cakes were delicious. Full of sweet yummy crab. We can't wait to go back.
Delicious food, great service. There was only one wait staff member and she was super busy but always had a smile on her face.
Tried the gorgonzola steak flatbread and grilled artichokes and just as amazing as everything else I've had there
This is one of my wife and my favorite restaurants. The service and meal were spectacular as always
FOOD , SEVICE AND COCKTAILS WELL ABOVE AVERAGE. EVERYTHING ARRIVED IN A TIMELY UNRUSHED PACE
We've been to South Ocean Grill many times and it is hands down one of our favorite places! The food is outstanding and consistent - never disappoints! I highly recommend the flatbread - the bread itself is made in house and all of the variations are excellent! The restaurant is small and cozy and usually quiet, though it can get a little noisy when its full, like any place. I was disappointed in the price of the drinks though. Their glasses got smaller and their prices got bigger. My husband and I each had two drinks and it was $50 - and the drinks were very small! It added a good amount to our final bill. Also, I asked for no fries with my meal, and asked for double vegetables instead - and they wanted to charge me $2.00 more? In their defense, when I questioned this the waitress was very nice and agreed to take the extra charge off of the bill. All in all, we would certainly go back again or maybe get take out and make our own drinks at home. Just something to take into consideration in advance of your visit. Bon appetite my friends! :)
Always a great meal in a small intimate space with a cheerful snd knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend the herb-crusted salmon!!
The food was delicious! Great chef and service. Thank you
Overall experience was good and would go back again!
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!
My favorite place to eat. Food is always amazing the the wait staff is always friendly
Birthday dinner for my son
Service was outstanding! Everyone was so accommodating. The food was fantastic. Highly recommend this gem!
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!
Great to be back! Food and service was excellent👍
amazing food, from the appetizer to the entree, and the drinks were great too! service was friendly and accomodating. great experience, would eat here again!
Food was delicious! Such a cute little place. We will be back!
Was Mother's Day - A day I usually hate to go out on because of the crowds. This was the best Mother's Day decision! It was not loud the service was great and the food was outstanding. We will definitely be back!
Always love to be there. Haven't been since before COVID and am so happy to be back! GREAT service, friendly, timely. Amazing food (fried calamari, truffle fries, Roquefort burger!). Definitely will be going often now.
I found this restaurant from TripAdvisor. We all loved it! Food, service, and ambience were perfect.
Staff and food was amazing! Can’t wait to come back!
Very cute place food was delicious we would definitely go back we had burgers and they were yummy
