If the waiter asks if you want a salad say no unless you really want one and want to pay the $13. They make it seem like it comes with your meal, but it doesn't! The staff is pretty snooty, but the food and location are great.

This is a review for the Ocean House's outdoor beach bar. We've eaten two times at the Ocean House Beach Bar (it is adjacent to the Ocean House Restaurant and is the same chef). The view is incredible. You are right on the edge of the beach (which is very rare for a restaurant/bar on the Cape). The food is... More

Beautiful atmosphere with an unbeatable view. However, so so crowded and noisy. Best to go in off season if possible! Food is light, fresh and tasty.

The staff was very accommodating from the getgo. The bar staff at the outdoor bar were happy and ready to make recommendations. The drinks were fantastic and the views just as good. We were seated at a window table and surprised by the gorgeous views. I felt like I was in the Carribean not the Cape. My husband had the... More

The main restaurant is not open during the day, but you can hit the Beach Bar out back and enjoy the vistas. Atmosphere is fun since hotel guests can walk across the lawn from the rooms and belly up. But the bartenders are not very attentive and seem to just be slogging through their day. Not engaging and make it... More

We usually go to the Ocean House every year, but this will be our last time. We ordered calamari, which turned out to be a huge order of fried breading. It was impossible to find any of the calamari in it. Entree's were average, Cocktails were expensive for what was ordered. The view is fantastic, the room is extremely noisy.... More

Dear Richard, We do apologize for your disassociation. The calamari is a restaurant classic that has been very popular for many years. Your concern was brought to our attention and we regret that we were not able to address in person before your departure. Regards, Ocean House Restaurant. More

Hands down the best food and service we have experienced on the cape. Took us 8 years to try it and now we are looking forward to regular visits. The view is great. The service was exceptional and the food delicious. Worth every penny. The menu has real food for children, no separate garbage kids menu. Smaller portions of a... More

The Ocean House Restaurant has it all! There is not a bad seat, although the best is next to a window.overlooking the beautiful Atlantic ocean. The cocktails and wine are delicious. Salads, soups and entrees are unique and very tasty. Desserts are yummy and the service is exceptional.
