Great place to celebrate a birthday with family (we were 8 people). Great chowder, Mussels were awesome, love the flat bread triangles, fish was fresh, delicious and generous. Server was extremely attentive and we loved the bar scene and music!

The food was excellent and our waitperson was friendly. The only complaint we had was that on a cold December 31 night, the back door was left first ajar and then wide open for an extended period of time while musicians brought in their equipment. Still, it was a memorable New Years Eve for us with delicious food.

This is one of the most picturesque ocean side restaurants I have ever been in. I would put it in the top 2 with Ocean in Kennebunkport. The scene is captivating. It is set up above the beach so you look straight out into the water. The food matched the setting. My wife had the lobster ravioli which was incredible... More

I just don't get why people practically worship this place. I have yet to experience the outstanding food and service that others rave about. My first time was a jazz brunch in 2002. The buffet offered lots of shellfish, but not much variety for non-shellfish eaters. Second time was a "special occasion" dinner. I honestly can't say what we ordered,... More

After years of either cooking for many or driving in holiday traffic we decided to join friends at this restaurant which we have heard about but never dined at. What a nice surprise. Although packed to the gills our reservation was honored on time and we were quickly seated by still smiling hostesses even though we were at the last... More

My husband and I had dinner here the other night. The food and service was phenomenal. Christian was our waiter and he was so helpful with the choices we made for our meals. He was so friendly he reminded us of our favorite waiter back home.

I read about this restaurant before our annual trip to the Cape and made a reservation before we left (which is a must do otherwise you won't be able to get it). Prime location on the ocean - you almost feel like you are on a boat. The interior is light and bright with high ceilings and an upscale seaside... More

The Ocean House is old school cape cod and modern cuisine. Comfort foods blended with exotic twists! Culinary complexity with focus on offering wide selections to many varieties of palate. Romantic restaurant with excellent service!
