Excellent food, but service felt a bit rushed. Prices for food and wine tend to be on the high side, but worth it for special occasions.

We have eaten at the Ocean House many times. I have a favorite meal that I usually get. The meal is Tagliatelle with shrimp. The pasta in the meal was not the usual and the shrimp were not cooked. I was extremely disappointed. I informed the waitress. She brought 3 more cooked shrimp and took away the uncooked ones. The meal was not up to their usual standards.

Went to celebrate 2 birthdays and it turned out to be a fabulous restaurant choice! All 4 of us loved our apps, entrees and desserts. The bacon fried rice was amazing! Our server was informative, ,attentive and had a wonderful sense of humor. The hostess greeted us warmly when we arrived and sat us immediately. The Valet was very personable! A wonderful dining experience and we will definitely return!

We had a wonderful late Sunday brunch. We wanted to take our Aunt and a friend from out of town someplace special with a water view. We had great service. The food was unique and generous. The warm pear and cranberry crisp with caramel gelato was fabulous

I travel from off Cape a few times a year to visit the Ocean House and am never disappointed. The room is classic white linen nice but if one is fortunate enough to be seated in the ocean front level it is one of the best ocean views on the Cape. The service is always reliable which makes me think the training is superior. The food is also of good quality and delicious. Reservations are absolutely suggested and sometimes even with a reservation there is a bit of a wait. Because of this the servers walk a fine line between providing a relaxing meal and moving the tables for the next diners, and usually do so nicely.

Ocean House is a beautiful setting, right on Nantucket Sound. Food and service is excellent. I had the tuna taco and a swordfish special. My husband had a salad and the cape cod chip encrusted cod.

A couple of glasses of wine.

We were here to celebrate my birthday and it was on the reservation. It would have been nice to have a complimentary dessert or just something special to acknowledge the event.

The best. We had the lobster ravioli, seafood tagliatelle, the salmon and the tuna - spectacular. We opened with a bento box appetizer. We opened the appetizer with four great martinis. Thank you Kathy (our server).

This is the first time I was disappointed with a meal at Ocean House. They just changed their menu. I’m hoping it is just some kinks hey need to work out.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday with an early dinner at The Ocean House. The food was delicious and service was very good. However, after dinner as we were waiting for the valet to bring our car around another vehicle arrived. As that car pulled in only a short distance into the lot, the valet pulled our car in behind it, got out and then shouted at us across the lot that our keys were in it. That was less than the service we would expect at a great restaurant.

The setting is gorgeous. If you reserve early enough, ask for a table as close to the water as possible. If you go at the right time, you’ll see the colors of sunset.....The service was very good and I had a terrific cocktail of the bartender’s creation. The food was very good but I found certain things too salty—the large sesame crackers served in the bread basket and the fried calamari appetizer, in my case. Something I wouldn’t expect at this kind of restaurant. The Korean BBQ broccoli appetizer wasn’t salty but I found it overspiced. Then, my “pad Thai,” called something else now, was OK but strangely flavored—for some reason, though, it was MUCH better cold the next day. Let me say, I don’t like bland food...but all these things were just not to my liking. The fruit cobbler dessert was delicious. So, although two friends independently told me this is their favorite restaurant on the Cape, I was a little disappointed.

We visited The Ocean House as a treat to ourselves while on vacation. While the menu imay seem expensive to some, it has beautiful views and our food was fantastic. The fish entrees and accompaniments we ordered were all cooked perfectly.

The only minor issue we had with the whole experience was the unfriendliness of both our waiter and the person we spoke to on the phone to get our reservation. Because everything else about our experience was awesome, we chalked it up to the fact that maybe some of the staff was having a bad day.

Overall, we all would highly recommend having dinner at The Ocean House.

The food was to die for especially the chocolate bag for dessert - A must have for anyone dining there! Sat in the porch area overlooking the ocean and hung out in the bar after dinner - good music and drinks on a Saturday night! The Ocean House never disappoints!

tWhat a fabulous find. Reservations required , but fine white tablecloth dining. only thing not perfect was the noise level was very loud due to the open atmosphere and the overcrowded bar. Worth every penny and the food was better then any description of it. A definite repeat place to dine. A little out of the way but a fabulous view = worth the out of way drive to get to it.

We love coming to the Cape and the Ocean House is always on the op of the list to come for dinner. We love the staff and the beautifully served dinners. Love Donny the waiter in the lounge, he has been there for the past seven years and we enjoy his gift of gab and quick and perfect service to all the tables in his area.
The restaurant is where we ate this time around. Again the waitress was right on time with every thing and also very helpful in our decision making.
Still is my favorite place to eat on the Cape in Dennis Port. Missed e=seeing Jan the owner but her daughter is just as nice as she is. LOVE All of you.

The Veal chop special in a veal Demi-glacé was a great break from the excellent seafood in New England- it was perfect. The lobster ravioli needed a thinner pasta or more filling to meet the
proper ratio. The service and view were great!!

White table linens create an under stated elegance while patrons still feel comfortable by dressing casual. Valet parking a plus. Inspirational Cuisine. Cocktails are fabulous. We had Manhattans with a choice of bourbon and rye.
