Found this place on Trip Advisor and the pictures made us hungry, so we tried it. Very clean place. Bar area was very nice and so was the dining area which was totally separate. So if you want to go be a bar fly this is the place for you.If you want a sit down meal with a bunch of... More

Really don't like to write reviews like this, but didn't have a good experience. A few months ago we were seated on the lounge side. We waited for about 15 minutes and were about to leave when I tracked down a waitress. She was very apologetic, and things went pretty well from there. Food was good, service was ok. Tonight...

I scoff at the tourists, knowing what I know, as they willingly gobble up the Old Port lobster pricing feeling like they got a bargain over prices they would pay at home for delicious Maine lobster. Hey everyone! I have a secret and it is big, red, delicious, and cheap! Come take part in the double and triple lobster specials... More

One of the best things ocean garden offers I'd lobsters/steamers to go. You give them a few days advanced notice and they cook up the lobsters/steams, pack them, provide broth and butter and all the napkins plates and wipes you need and send you in your way to an awesome clambake without all the prep work. And the packing containers... More

We had been here 5 years ago when the triple lobster was just $19.95. Now it is under new management and the cost was $28.95. BUT...the lobsters were much bigger and better presented. No sharing is allowed, but passing off a shelled claw or tail didn't raise an eyebrow. My husband got the broiled scallops in a garlic wine better... More

As soon as we got home my wife got sick, I was fine, bad salmon? Could be but won't chance it... More

Ocean Garden is an outstanding seafood restaurant with good variety of choices for people who don't like seafood. The portions are huge and the seafood is fresh. Dining is casual New England style and prices are very reasonable. The service is personalized and friendly.
