Hard to find restaurants on the water in Dennis Port. There are a few but this is the best. When they have entertainment it is totally enjoyable without being so loud that you cannot converse. Crab cake is perfection. Tough to get reservations last minute. Bar area is first come first serve. Staff and service is exceptional.

Nice view in the daytime. Pricey. Asian influenced fare. Rather loud. Occasional night entertainment.

If you are a seafood person and in particular crab cake person, make it a point to eat at Ocean House. This crab cake rivals any I have ever had. Perfection. Drinks are perfectly executed, food is a 10 out of a 10 and service is incredible. So close to the water you feel like the waves will come inside.... More

Though it was wintery and dark at 6PM, the beach was softly illuminated by the light through the huge windows of the dining room. Just enough light for us to see waves gently moving across the shore and to sense the sea beyond. Very nice. The Seafood Sampler starter was perfection as were the Yellow Fin Tuna and Sea Scallop...

Plentiful wine/cocktail service, great service, and the excellent 3 for $30 dinner menu [Calamari, Cape Cod Potato Chip encrusted Cod, Pork Osso Buco were outstanding this time] made our night extraordinary. This year round upscale restaurant should be in any Mid-Caper's top 5 list.

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 is great (kudos Christian!). Especially good in the... More
