Great for the Happy Hour. Good food and good music. Go as a couple or as a group. Fun. The specials on different nights are a plus.

We spent a vey enjoyable evening at Ocean Blues, listening to Oceans Eleven Big Band. The food and drinks were great. Hostess/cruise director Sandy made everyone feel at home and our waitress, Brenda, was perfect. A fun night in Sarasota.

We gals are all originally from Chicago and loved the live big band jazz music during dinner and the live blues band after dinner. Sandy was a beautiful and fantastic hostess. Our servers were Kelsey and Angie...fabulous ladies!! Can't say enough GOOD about them. Dinner was super tasty and timing on our drinks was always right on!

The combination of good food and outstanding entertainment is pretty hard to beat. Sarasota is a city of restaurants, but the opportunity for an enjoyable meal while accompanied by first-class music is not so common in SRQ. In fact, this experience is more like something you might expect in New York or Memphis where you expect to find quality combinations... More

Doc, Thanks for stopping by the other night. I am glad you enjoyed your evening. I will pass your note along to the gang at Ocean's Eleven. We don't pay them enough…so a little praise and some tips go a long way! We hope you'll come back and see us soon! Scott Reid Owner More

Great music, good price. The singer and the band was fantastic. We really enjoy it with my wife. We will visit that place again if we need some great amusement.

Went for a Saturday night dinner with friends to check out the Ocean 11 Jazz Band. Didn't appear to have a cover charge or drink minimum, but we had reservations and were having dinner. The food was acceptable and with drinks ran under $100 a couple. The Ocean 11 group did a two hour set from 7-9 pm of varied... More

Excellent restaurant with a delicious meal. Great price considering the night we were there. They had an 11 piece orchestra Oceans 11 that was very enjoyable as we danced away the old year and boogied in the new one. Very tasty Martinis as well. We will be back.

I am not one for extravagant New Year celebrations but like to enjoy the evening in different ways and this was a great venue and I am happy that I went. The food, well it was OK but we didn't really go for the food, the band, well that was worth every cent of the $75 per couple I paid,... More
