while i have been a fun of this restaurant, this may have been my last time there. we had a reservation for 7pm. showed up at 7.13pm and they refused to sit us alleging our showing up late was considered to be a “no show”. we had a party of 4 and could not believe they really did not want to sit us!

The Ocean house has innovative and delicious food to go with the great location and ambiance. I go often with friends and always request a lowtop in the bar area. It's cozier than the more elegantly appointed dining room. There are always some great cocktails and desserts on the menu! The waitstaff can tell you everything about anything on the menu and will help you make the right choice. The excellent timing of the servers is amazing considering how busy it always is. You definitely need a reservation unless you are popping in right at opening for a seat at the bar (which is also a great way to experience the Ocean House). Only suggestion is that there is often live music which can make the bar area a bit loud for comfortable conversation so if you need to a quieter spot, ask for the main dining room.

We were greeted by friendly staff who sat us right away. The dining room was elegant, white table cloths, bustling. We started with the rosewater margaritas-- bright red, with a purple flower on top. Tasted just like my usual lime-green margarita, only better. We ordered from the 3 for $35 menu, which was an excellent value! The kale salad caesar style was nice, though on the smaller side. The salmon dinner was absolutely delicious, excellent, in a slightly sweet sauce, over a flavorful risotto. The shrimp and pasta dish, we agreed, was very good, but not as good as the salmon. The carrot cake was small, but rich and delicious. The brownie sundae was just okay, due to the not-chocolately-enough brownie. Gabriella gave us excellent recommendations and service throughout the night! She even kept up with my husband's silly sense of humor! Squeezed in to the bar to enjoy the band afterward, crowded but still enjoyable.

We had a quick bite here earlier in the week and were amazed by the quality of the food as well as the great service. We came back to celebrate an anniversary dinner last night before leaving the Cape. We ate in the bar and had Donnie as our waiter. It was amazing all way around- great food, great service, great ambience - can’t recommend it enough
Wish we lived closer because this would be our regular place to enjoy!

We sre.locals who haven't been in a couple of years and it was fantastic! Service was great (yay Gabrielle), ambience was stellar even down to the beautiful flowers outside the main entrance in planters. Place looks beautiful inside and the food was outstanding. We tried the bento box, the oyster buns, the stir fry noodles and the seafood bruschetta. We finished with the chocolate bag for two which huge! Highly recommend.

The tofu bun was soft and flavorful,the Korean broccoli was properly burnt with a kick.,Saginaw nachos we delish and oh so fresh and the tuna ice cream cone were also yummy and fun.always innovative and delicious. We had the crime brûlée which never disappoints. Great service and a beautiful view.

1/2 year resident coming to the Ocean House for 25 years. No matter what, we want to be there and love the atmosphere. Appreciate more before the outside bar opens which is a distraction when dining on the beautiful porch overlooking the water that you have. Perhaps blinds at the far end of the porch starting early evening?

Restaurant was lovely, but very crowded . Have wanted to go with a group but never can accommodate more than 4 on a reservation. Food was excellent as were the drinks... bread and dip prior to meal was super yummy too.

We were having dinner with friends and seated right on time (with reservation) in a comfy booth with water view. Servers were quick to greet us and take our orders. Food was delicious as always. Only regret, we weren't served the crackers with humus that they used to serve. They should bring that back. A very nice evening at Ocean House!

While the restaurant is sometimes noisy, we were seated near the windows looking out at a darkened beach away from the main dining room. They featured a “Three For Thirty Five” menu, from which the four of us ordered. The food was excellent, and the service, as usual, was above par. All the servers wear a puzzle piece pin which denotes that the restaurant contributes to an autism charity, a nice thing to do. We have always had a good meal here and the servers are all friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without hovering. Recommended
