Fabulous Food and Atmosphere

Loved the food and the atmosphere. We had a romantic corner table for dinner during our March 2015 honeymoon. Service was great. Would eat here again! You won't be disappointed.

A recent Mongoose Jct fire took its toll on this restaurant, but it bounced back due to excellent service and food. Higher priced, but there are some bargains in the menu, if you look hard enough.

I do not like mussels unless they're the Thai mussels from this place. So good I actually crave them. Everything on the menu is nearly as good. You know your mahi is fresh when you just saw it delivered over the shoulder of the fisherman who caught it. It's a don't miss spot!!!

Grilled lobster special was delicious! Service is the best we experienced during our stay. Covered outdoor seating with nice music during dinner.

My husband and I dined here for dinner on our last night on the island. We split a meal of rib eye and lobster which was fantastic. I don't typically like lobster but this was the best I'd ever had. The portion size was perfect for the two of us to split and we did not leave hungry. The wait... More

We enjoyed our lunch at Ocean Grill. This was our first time eating here. They are located in the middle of Mongoose junction. It is basically outside surrounded by plants and palms. We didn't have to wait for seating and the servers were very friendly and prompt. My wife had a salad and I had the Mahi Mahi sandwich blackened... More

not really impressed. We were a large group with kids, wanting a little lunch. Too expensive, the food was good, the waiter just wasn't happy and he was taking care of everyone at the bar and us. Calamari was good, but $88.00 later for 3 of us was too much... for just a couple drinks and snacks.

We ended up here on a whim and were very pleased with the restaurant. Our 5 year old grandson thought the chicken tenders were super! Everyone else enjoyed their food.

Food was good however way way way overpriced. $42 dollars for 2 lobster ravioli and a half a small lobster tail is crazy! Calamari salad tasted like a pound of salt was added. Chef may want to rinse the capers before adding to a salad. They had an extensive dessert menu however, only 3 things were available. I would not... More
