We come every year for an anniversary dinner and OH never disappoints. This was our 40th anniversary! Outside bartenders were great and fun and our waitress inside, Wendy, was perfection. Great night.

Beautiful restaurant on the water. Great service. Only issue for the price, more likely lobster on top of the lobster ravioli. But for the ambience, drinks and friendly service it’s worth going to

My husband and I own a summer property in So Yarmouth and come to the Cape several times each Summer. We’ve been to the Ocean House many times and usually have a positive experience. The waiter we had last night ( Sun pm, Fathers Day) took a lot away from our dining experience last night. We had a 9:15 reservation and upon being seated (table was in the bar area) he immediately wanted us to order food. We had not received drinks or even looked at the menu. He proceeded to tell us what we should order, wanted me to order the tuna tartar nachos despite my telling him repeatedly I wasn’t in the mood for that (yes, I’ve had tuna tartare and even had it at the Ocean House and it’s lovely. It’s just not what I wanted last night. He would not let it go). He then said the kitchen closed at 9:30 so we had to get our order in right away or we would miss dinner. I explained that we g he as a 9:15 pm reservation, only time offered when I booked, he said that was the way things were. Throughout the evening everything was not only rushed but increasingly awkward. He clearly had somewhere to be that evening and wanted us fed and gone. He also made inappropriate jokes throughout and at one point commented that I must be difficult to please and offered his sympathy to my husband. The only positive was that we were back in our place in So Yarmouth by 10:15 pm, one hour for dinner and the travel time home.
As I said earlier, we’ve dined at the Ocean House many times and always had a good experience. I hope this was an aberration and I wanted to bring it to your attention.
Thank you.

My wife and I have spent most of our adult lives summering on Cape Cod and can comfortable say The Ocean House is the best restaurant on the Cape that we've discovered to date. The setting and the food is hard to beat.

My husband and I have been coming here many years and have never been disappointed. We were celebrating our 49th anniversary and noticed that two couples around us got anniversary cakes but waitress did not bring one to us so we were a little disappointed.

I am not sure who eats here, but the exact rating in any other city means much better food. Worst risotto and Asian salad I have ever tasted, wings and seafood stew were average.

Everything about this restaurant is perfect and is a MUST if you’re in Cape Cod. The service and atmosphere were great and the food was beyond excellent. All of us in our party of four agreed our meal was the best we’ve ever had. Definitely recommend.

Outstanding meal. We started with the lobster tempura roll. Spectacular. And the presentation was perfect. Then I had the vegetable cheese risotto with grilled chicken and it was equally amazing. This restaurant is a MUST while on Cape Cod. I am going back with my boyfriend ASAP.

Quality of food definitely did not match the price from the bread basket to the main meal. Steak wasn’t edible. Had to send back. Would not recommend.

Appetizers were tasty and the sauces complemented them well. Main courses were outstanding. We were full but we split a peanutbutter chocolate desert and it was a great way to end a meal. I highly recommend going if you can get a reservation.
