My husband and I strolled along Ocean Drive from 11 Street down to 3 Street. Along the way, we were hassled by the restaurants asking us to stop for breakfast. We could have switched to the other side of the street, but it was irritating that we couldn't enjoy our walk thanks to the vendors. We got off Ocean Drive... More

The service was poor so try another café unless you want to wait an hour to get your check. The reason I'm not sure if this is good for kids-we were at... More

Had a blast! ! Nonstop partying. Stopped and had drinks at several bars and shopped at the open storefronts.

Everything you heard read and saw about Ocean Drive is true. It is hip with the restaurants the pretty people the fancy cars the music the people watching but due it on foot not in a car. On a Saturday night it becomes a virtual parking lot with cars moving so slowly that with cross streets entering you sometime do... More

Since we've been to Miami about 20 times, we've been to Ocean Drive several of those times. Years ago, we used to like to go by Mango's Cafe, and sit outside when our daughter was small. It was always intriguing to just hang around and people watch. Now we just like to walk around and grab a drink somewhere, of... More

Definitely a fun vibe but could be a little cheesy. I would recommend walking in and having a drink or appetizer at lunch or early dinner time.

We've only eaten a few times on Ocean Drive simply because it is manic! Mainly Ocean Drive is restaurants both inside and with outdoor seating. If you choose to eat outside be prepared for hundreds of people walking past on the narrow road watching you and occasionally bumping into you. Having said that, I would definitely recommend you grab a... More

If you want nightlife this is the place to go. it is full of Restaurants and Bars all trying to out do each other with the loudness of their music. As you pass each place you are pounced on by menu bearing servers trying to entice you in.
