Fabulous food, but faulty air conditioners

We were seated promptly for our 5:3O reservation. Our server was very polite and attentive. The Ocean Breeze cocktail was a wonderful and refreshing. Our appetizer was the seafood bruschetta-amazing flavor, but seafood was overlooked. We had the paparadele pasta special with seafood. Mine... read more

We were seated promptly for our 5:3O reservation. Our server was very polite and attentive. The Ocean Breeze cocktail was a wonderful and refreshing. Our appetizer was the seafood bruschetta-amazing flavor, but seafood was overlooked. We had the paparadele pasta special with seafood. Mine was over salted and my friend's was perfect. This is a deliciously beautiful place to dine.... More

Four of us were prompty seated for our 8:30 pm reservation. The restaurant was packed, so I strongly suggest a reservation. The wait staff was delightful, courteous, and knowledgable. The mussel appetizer was our favorite, and in fact it could have been my entire meal! It would be lovely to dine at sunset and watch the ocean. The outside bar... More

We dined at the restaurant and it was quite full. The food was fine and generally tasty. Unfortunately the noise level in the restaurant was awesome. It was very difficult to carry on a conversation given the overwhelming din and the noise clearly detracted from the entire dining experience. The tables are very close together. On the whole the restaurant... More

This restaurant is so popular that it is difficult to get a reservation. We showed up at 5:00 at the bar and had a 1 1/2 hour wait. We waited at the adjacent ocean side bar and the time flew by. The bar seating was still upscale and full service. The service and meal was excellent. Can't say enough good... More

Breakfast is very close by but beware, they microwave the eggs. Everything else was very good and the service was speedy. Very nice view of the water if you sit outdoors.

When planning our week long vacation on the Cape, we looked for a 5 star restaurant to take my daughter to for her 27th birthday. In our search, The Ocean House came up and after reading the reviews we immediately made reservations. Maybe my expectations were too high but we were disappointed with the service we received. We noticed all... More

This restaurant has a very enjoyable atmosphere, not so formal but yet enjoyable! The plates are really big, and the quality of the food is really high! I personally had the seafood sampler as entree, and the tuna as main course, and the first was better. We had a great time!

Please note this is a review of the beach bar (outside dining) not the indoor restaurant because they have different menus. Went with some friends and the general agreement was the cocktails were good. I had the frozen salted caramel (alcoholic) for $13, and my friend was raving about their key lime margarita (see pictures). As for the food, they... More

We had made a reservation several weeks in advance for a birthday celebration. Somehow the reservation got cancelled thru the site I used for the reservation ( not affiliated with the restaurant). The hostess was very gracious and found us a table in the lounge with a beautiful view. Because it was so crowded, it was noisy but we did... More
