Favorite "On the water" restaurant

Restaurants with a stunning ocean view on Cape Cod are mostly the "fried calm and fries" variety. The Ocean House is upscale, fairly priced and features a great view of Nantucket Sound. The bar is even more fun and features local jazz entertainment on weekends (ask for Jamie at the bar). Service... read more

This place has it all! Great service, amazing food, delicious crafted cocktails and refined yet relaxed atmosphere. The sliders were so good, as was the lobster ravioli and butterscotch pudding. I would return in a heartbeat next time I'm down the cape!

My husband ordered the Filet for $36, ordered it medium, it came RARE. Our waiter didn't even wait for my husband to cut into the meat to find out if it was ok, so... More

This is a great restaurant with a great view and exceptional service. My husband and I recently made reservations for our anniversary. In order to get a window seat, you should make a reservation. We had to be there by five which is fine because we wanted to see the sunset. Well, this particular weekend, it rained all weekend, but... More
