We went there for an anniversary dinner. They seated us at a window looking out at the ocean. We ordered lobster ravioli-which was outstanding. Our waitress recommended the creme brûlée for dessert-it was excellent! I highly recommend this restaurant!

The food is great, but the view is magnificent.
They are hard to get reservations with in the summer, book early.

Amazing food. Can’t say enough about the restaurant. It’s a definite place to see the ocean while dining. Sometimes you feel like your on a cruise ship when you look out of the windows

This was our first time visiting this restaurant and wish we had discovered it a long time ago. The view is stunning! It is directly on the ocean and every set in the restaurant provides for an amazing view. You can't get any closer to the ocean than this restaurant. The waitress was professional, pleasant and quick. The food was amazing. I got the seafood Tagliatelle Pasta which had lobster, scallops and shrimp in a basil black pepper sauce. I was delicious with the perfect amount of basil and pepper in the sauce so as not to be overwhelming. The portion was huge and could have easily fed two people. I took half my meal home. This was one of the best meals I have ordered any restaurant. My husband had the Chilean Sea Bass with french beans and a blueberry rice. It also was excellent.

Been here many times. We are well traveled and understand good food and good service. While the food rarely disappoints the service could use some refreshing. Ushered into the bar prior to our reservation, the hostess came over to our table, literally plopped down two menus. No introduction, no welcome to the Ocean House. A waitress, Mia, came over, took our drink order and, again plopped down two plates not asking if we were dining in the bar area or the main restaurant. When she arrived with our drinks, we told her we would be eating in the main dining area and would like to have our bar bill added to our meal bill. She quickly took our plates, menus and looked very annoyed. In the main restaurant, Racheul, who was good at her “job” never once made eye contact or addressed my husband, which when he mentioned that to me, I noticed she did that at her other three tables. Just on the rude side.

The food was incredable. We go every year at least once, and the menu is always something new. I had the wagyu steak and it was cooked perfectly with the delicious lobster fried rice, my wife had a pasta dish with scallops in it and the sauce was so good. 5 starts will definatley reccomend

Food was wonderful. Noise level made it difficult to have a conversation. Bar/lounge extremely crowded, difficult to find seating and have a cocktail.

Love this place. However, the noise level was significant on Saturday night. My recommendation is wait till after Labor Day to enjoy this four star restaurant. Everything this gem offers is better when the crowd thins out. Try the meat wraps in lettuce - just know everyone will want one. So good!

We enjoy the Ocean House and have been here many times. The views are amazing and they have a great menu. You can also enjoy their outdoor café and Beach Bar.

It’s all about the location-but the service is excellent and the food always fabulous-this visit we had steaks and sea bass and scallops - all were cooked perfectly and delicious. Desert was amazing and an instagram-worthy display! Worth the visit every year on vacation.

I wouldn't recommend the Ocean House. Overpriced and unimpressive starters and entrees. Great view but that's about it.

A lovely way to celebrate an anniversary! The view is spectacular (one of the few restaurant ocean views on the Cape) and the food was awesome. Our waitress was the best!!! And they brought us a special chocolate treat for our special day. Yes, I'd go again!

This is mine and my husband's favorite place the staff is very friendly and accommodating, they go out of their way to make customers happy. The view is outstanding and the food is amazing. I would highly recommend this and the outside bar with music to everyone living and visiting the cape.

We love this place! The atmosphere is beautiful and the food is delicious. We enjoyed the outdoor music and then were pleased to see that the musicians moved inside for the remainder of the evening. We go to the Cape every year, sometimes multiple times, and eating at The Ocean House is always on our agenda!
