FANTASTIC AS ALWAYS! GREAT PLACE FOR ANY OCCASION. THE VIEWS ARE AMAZING.
I had enormous expectations based on friends’ prior enthusiastic comments. We ordered 2 appetizers and 4 entrees. The first appetizer of minced beef with lettuce cups had too much moisture in the beef mixture to contain it in the lettuce cups making the lettuce cups “leaky” and messy. The Caesar salad was fine. My husband’s hardy entree of pork chop and sweet potato was terrific, both in taste and presentation. The salmon entree was a small, thin piece of salmon and aside from rice there was nothing else on the plate but some sauce. The fish and chips provided crisp delicious fish and soggy french fries. My scallops were tasty. I wished the mashed potatoes were more subtle in the addition of blue cheese. I did not care for the addition of pickled peppers. Our table server was excellent and very attentive. We were promptly seated and served. Over all, we enjoyed our social evening and I would give Ocean House another try. But I wanted to be wowed!
It was our first visit and from what we had heard about this place our expectations were high. While service and presentations were excellent the food was mediocre. The cauliflower was too vinegary and my scallop risotto was too salty and not really favourable. Not very creative. We both enjoyed Romane salad a lot but the other one didn't seem interesting. Overall it was a bit disappointing.
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal to celebrate our Anniversary. Our dessert even came with a Happy Anniversary chocolate and candle. Thank you for the added touch!
usually love this place and food but chef was awol our last 2 visits. Bisque intolerably salty, chicken appetizer hours old was dry and hard, main course meat chewy,...thus, decided to explore new restaurants instead of returning
Very lovely restaurant... waterfront. Excellent food. Very noisy when we arrived on a crowded Sunday night during restaurant week -- and between the crowd and a band that was in the bar, it was problematic. As people cleared out it was better. Not sure what the music adds other than noise.
Superb from start to finish.
Excellent food and ambience
We have been here three other times during our travels to the Cape and this time was not quite up to the usual 5 star. Waitress seemed bored and was not attentive. Food was just good.
Alwaya a great attention to detail from the cocktails to dessert....by far our favorite restaurant
The service was great. Our server Kelly was amazing. She recommended the porterhouse for two which was outstanding. The drinks were incredible. We will definitely be coming back.
Always delicious. The mussels app. With chorizo was huge and was cooked perfectly. The iceberg salad with blue cheese dressing had crumbled blue cheese scattered on the salad and in the dressing. Korean short ribs was seasoned well. The tempura fish was not tempura but did have a thin crispy coating but was the fish was a little tough and fishy. It looked like small pieces of the tail. Dessert was good. Whipped cream lacked body but tasted Very good. Still a favorite with us.
Went on a very busy night during restaurant week. Everything was excellent, eclectic menu choices, we tried the “3 for $35”, which included app, entree & dessert. Everything was well presented & delicious. Very efficient, friendly service.
It was our first time to The Ocean House and totally met our expectations. The food, service and atmosphere was outstanding. Cannot wait to go back.
We love The Ocean House, the location, interior decor, wait staff, and most of all the food and cocktails. Each time we come there are several things on the food and drink menu that sound so wonderful, it’s always a difficult decision to decide what to order. So far(this was our third time) everything has been fabulous! The only problem has been getting a reservation to take our house guests, during the summer.
Always an amazing choice for dinner. Very busy so you must have reservations.
Stupendous! The view! The chowder! The Autumn cocktails! Ocean House is an extra special kind of place. We sat right by the window for our 25th wedding anniversary. What an unforgettable treat!
My wife and I dine out a lot and we have yet to find a better restaurant on cape cod.
Their salads are so creative and smoky.
We ordered brussels sprouts and baby kale salads. For entries lobster ravioli and Korean BBQ.
Fabulous as usual , food choices, ambiance, always first class !! This place never gets old , Janet dies a great job catering to your needs, home run every time 😍🤗
I took a friend, who had never been there, for her birthday--while all was good, it just didn't have the pizazz it usually does--servers, etc. mediocre at best--nothing special!
All our food orders were superb. My vegetarian friend wanted a past a dish but nothing was on the menu. The chef was happy to create a dish for her. We will definitely come back.
The food was not as good as it has been in the past -a little disappointed this time -food was cold-but I will try it a gain.
Outstanding food and service, Rachel is an incredible waitress
Food was excellent. Extremely crowded. Table for 4 too small and tables on top of one another. No room.
Amazing view! So glad we had early reservations so we could enjoy the view. With so many options on the menu I have no idea why I ordered Pad Thai. Poor choice. The salmon was excellent. Cant wait to go back and try something different.
We were dining at the Ocean House on Oct 4th at 6 PM. I had a $38 filet that had the characteristics of having been previously frozen. While Med/rare, it lacked taste and slightly tough. Wife and guest’s food excellent. The noise was so great we couldn’t understand the waitress and normal conversation was impossible. The waitress was not very attentive. We stay 1/4 mile from O.House. Dining in past was AA.
Fabulous from beginning to end; one of best nights ever! Thanks to all!
Outstanding! Everything was first class from arriving to departing . I am one who loves to dine and there are few places that provide such an elegant atmosphere with such high quality of food and service! The food was perfectly prepared , the service provided by Wendy was stellar and the outstanding hospitality shown by Janet is unmatched ! I highly recommend this restaurant it is quite simply the best dining experience there is on cape cod.
Food was fantastic, service from our waiter was awful , unfortunately. Been to the Ocean House before and had awesome service but totally missed this time out. Won't stop me from going back. We love the restaurant. Not sure if it was his first few nights or what but not what we expected or a good representation of the Ocean House.
We had the Bohemian cocktail, asparagus fries, white clam pizza and lobster pad Thai- all delicious!
all of the entries were delicious, and the presentation of each dish was beautiful.
I have celebrated many an occasion at the Ocean House and it always feels special. That said, the last 2 visits (August and September 2018) I did notice a change in the quality of certain dishes. I'm not sure whether there are new cooks in the kitchen or they have just gotten too busy, but it was disappointing. I also noticed an increase in prices, so this combination may prevent me from returning for the next special event. Also the waiter that we had was uninvolved and seemed unhappy with his job.
If you are looking for a great restaurant this is it! Definitely make a reservation as there seemed to be a wait for those who did not. The filet was amazing, cauliflower app was the best app I’ve ever had and my boyfriend enjoyed the cod! The gluten free brownie Sunday was amazinggg.
Great night out for our anniversary. Wish we made our reservations for earlier in the evening so that we could have enjoyed what must have been amazing ocean views. Food and service was excellent.
The food was fabulous as always and the Hostess and Staff are the best!
One of our favorite restaurants. Food is outstanding. Wonderful restaurant all around. Perfect restaurant to celebrate the special occasion
Great evening celebrating my wife birthday with our children. Hostess was able to accommodate a last minute add, waitress was friendly and efficient. The ‘small plate’ selection has a wide variety and dinner was excellent for all 5 of us. Would highly recommend for a special occasion
Great experience. Food was excellent and the service was great but the ambiance is the best part of the experience
