    Have visited Ocean House many times over the years and overall has been good. First time returning in a couple years . Food and value had seemed to go downhill for awhile. This visit was different. The food was back to what is usually expected for this type of venue. Will be returning again much sooner!

    Although the end of October it was warm inside and very little air conditioning. Loud environment. Food is good, chicken a bit dry and overcooked. First less than 5 star review for this restaurant from me.! They are usually great.

    We noticed that the prices have risen significantly, so read the online menus and prices before making a reservation. However, the food is truly excellent, and the service is friendly and efficient. So it’s a great choice for a special occasion. Splurge and savor!

    One of the most consistent restaurants on Cape for food and service. It was an anniversary and birthday weekend and my wife and I ended up the weekend here and it was the best! For starters the fall salad and the chowder were excellent. Bread with a hummus side along with scallion butter accompanied our cocktails. OH makes a great Negroni and a Apple Martini which my wife thought was just delicious. For entrees, my wife ordered the Ahi tuna and I had the sirloin steak. Both were done accordingly and were just outstanding. Dessert rolled around and it was a warm apple crusted tart with apples, cinnamon and ice cream which was just decadent. Tom our server was so cordial and incredibly gracious throughout the evening without being obtrusive. Overall, an incredible evening once again. OH opened only though the last weekend in October and will reopen the first week in April. Thank you for making our summer and fall season this year OCean House!

    I ordered the chicken Milanese…. I didn’t realized that it was fried. I was perfectly happy with the delightful arugula/tomato side. Hannah, our waitress, notified I wasn’t eating the chicken and asked if everything was okay. My husband told her I can’t eat fried foods. I chimed in and said I was okay with my arugula….to my surprise, the manager brought me a grilled piece of chicken. I will be calling the restaurant on Wednesday when they are opened again because I left my eyeglass case with readers at table 19.

    The service was outstanding. The sea bass was the best I have ever eaten. Cocktails were inventive and yummy. The noise level was high and talking challenging. We were celebrating our anniversary with the couple next to us celebrating their engagement. The dessert tags were lovely. Enjoy your winter rest.

    I love this place! It’s more expensive than a lot of restaurants, but it’s not your average restaurant. The food quality and preparation is amazing. I’m always amazed and how they prepare things and the different ingredients they use and put together, and have never had a bad meal. It’s a perfect special occasion place. The view and atmosphere is so nice. I didn’t have my favorite waiter this trip, but the waitress who took care of us was wonderful.
