Relaxing ambiance; excellent service; incredibly good food.

I've always enjoyed the Ocean House, but now, if anything, it is even better ! What a great chef! My soft-shelled crab with Kim Chee, spicy mayonnaise, and cilantro was SO GOOD. My companion's mussels were a step beyond delectable ... in a light and very flavorful broth. My "short rib... read more

My husband and I ate here for restaurant week. You can't go wrong for 3 for $30! All incredible! Lettuce wraps, clam chowder, chicken pad Thai and the steak!! We love this place and can't wait to go back! Beautiful view as well!

Another restaurant that gets great reviews and then disappoints somewhat when you get there. It doesn't stop the crowds, however. The tuna tartare was OK...large chunks. Baby kale Caesar salad was good. My daughter enjoyed the beef sliders. My wife ordered the special: black cod (tautog) that was so fishy, she had to send it back...and she never does that.... More

We went to Ocean House for dinner with another couple on a Friday night. It was still light out and even though we did not get a table by the window we had a nice view of Nantucket Sound. The restaurant was full but the service was very good and we did not have to wait between courses. Our waitress... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant twice during a recent off season week stay in Harwich Port. The restaurant is not much to look at from the entrance, but the views from nearly every table inside are spectacular. We found the service to be attentive both times. In the off season, they offer a Three for Thirty menu, giving... More

We started outside by one of the heaters, then were seated in the bar for dinner. We had tried to make a reservation but they were booked solid until 9:00 so we took our chances in the bar and were not disappointed! Four meals (fish, beef and pasta) were all excellent. We were there on a choose 3 courses for... More

We returned for our third time to the OH and were not disappointed. First, the location is idyllic...right on oceanfront. Even if you have a back of the house seat, the ocean is beautifully visible. Next, the service. We have never been disappointed. Servers are friendly yet most professional. Finally, the food. It is consistently delicious. Drinks are also very... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Ocean House. The ocean view is one of the best I've seen anywhere! Our server was pleasant and professional. The food was terrific, starting with a charming bonus of bread and crackers put together to look like a sailboat and served with white bean "hummus." We all took advantage of the "3 for $30"...

I was in the area visiting friends who treated me to dinner at The Ocean House. The decor is casual yet upscale and very warm and inviting. The staff was incredibly gracious and knowledgeable and the views stunning as we sat it felt like we were on a luxury cruise. We all shared the bento box and a roasted octopus... More

Excellent dinner here last night. The place is right on the beach and they have valet parking. They have a full bar and serve up some nice cocktails. Ask for their daily drink specials. The food here is amazing and something I didn't think I would see on the cape. The flavors and presentation are on par with such restaurants... More
