    The view is incredible. Great service, very attentive staff. The food was delicious! We had the lobster maki appetizer, farm greens salad, filet mignon special, and Bento Box, which included rock shrimp in white gazpacho, bacon wrapped scallops with grilled peaches, bratwurst sliders, crab and asparagus beignets and chicken satay with mango slaw.

    The overall experience was excellent. Food and service are top notch and the view is spectacular. We were seated at a two top which did take away from the experience as the tables are a little small especially for this type of dining experience

    This is our 11th straight year celebrating our Anniversary at Ocean House. We even ate outside on a cold and blustery day during the pandemic in 2020. It has never disappointed and we will be back again on June 22 of 2023, of not before for just an enjoyable meal. We love it there

    Fabulous from beginning to end. One of the best meals ever. If you enjoy 5 star dining, this is for you. I had to wait three weeks to get a reservation. Incredible view and amazing menu. Superlatives have never been my strong suit. I am very fussy. But Ocean house has everything covered. Service, ambience and they are virtually sitting on the ocean. Enjoy!

    We felt under dressed. Much more upscale than we’d imagined. And the food was good but not worth the expensive price tag. Enjoyed the environment and the service was wonderful. We would go back again, but are only here on vacation.

    Our first time at OH with friends visiting from out of town, we wanted to have dinner with a view and OH did not disappoint. We had a great table by the window on the bar side. Our server, Mia, was knowledgeable, friendly, and very patient with our many questions about the menu and OH in general. Everything, from cocktails, to apps, entrees, dessert and after dinner drinks was top notch. We had high expectations going in based on reputation and OH completely lived up to the hype!

    Always a nice spot for a memorable night out or special occasion. Our server was great, very helpful and pleasant. Kids' food was delish (kid-approved) and came out quickly. We enjoyed our appetizers (grilled oysters and clams with chorizo). Chilean sea bass entree was very good too. Bento box special entree was a miss - I love tasting menus so it seemed like a great idea, but the food it included was not particularly special or delicate. Just small plates of mundane dishes. The view was lovely as always, even on a cloudy day.

    We really appreciated that they remembered our anniversary and brought a special dessert - that was a very nice touch. Overall, the prices are high and the dining room is noisy. Only large parties are seated by the window, so as a group of only two we were at a high top in the middle of the room. Food was good; arrived super quickly to the table (almost too quick when you want to enjoy an evening out, but certainly better than the alternative!).

    I’ve eaten at the ocean house every summer for a few years, and it has always been my favorite place for fine dining in the area. This time I was disappointed. The menu had many interesting items. We both ordered the scallops, served with a rice salad with pineapple and bacon (interesting flavor combo). But overall the dish was good, not excellent. Charred broccoli with soy and ginger was quite tasty but also oily. The very sweet blueberry tart rounded out our meal. It was well prepared but too sweet for me. The service was extremely slow. We saw our server maybe once every 15 minutes, and the meal did seem to go on and on. The place is very expensive, which I dont mind as long as food and service are outstanding. This was unfortunately not our experience.

    Had the pleasure of eating at the Ocean House twice during our recent visit to the Cape. This has always been one of our favorite restaurants when visiting the area and, as before, were extremely pleased with all aspects of our dining there. Our Saturday night fare consisted of Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail followed by Mixed Farm Greens Salad, Scallops for me and flakey and tender Chilian Sea Bass for my wife; the side dish for us both was Asparagus. Returning the following Thursday, we I had an excellent 6oz Tenderloin and she enjoyed the Chilian Sea Bass for a second time (Yes, it was that good!). For both dining experiences, we chose Cakebread Chardonnay to accompany the meal. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere was superb with the water-side view of the Nantucket Sound. For dining at this restaurant, reservations via OpenTable well in advance of your dining evening are suggested. The restaurant is highly recommended!

    This is a fabulous restaurant. The lobster ravioli were excellent and the raw bar little necks were amazingly fresh and well shucked and presented. The cocktail shrimp were excellent, too. The lamb lollipops were very disappointing, tough-NOT tender, and impossible to chew- even when they were replaced- same problems. I was very disappointed, because the flavor seemed like it was going to be wonderful. We would definitely go back, because this is not how it usually goes at the Ocean House. Regularly, everything is top notch!
