Beautiful Special Occasion Restaurant

We live locally but have never been to the Ocean House and decided to go for our anniversary dinner. We could not have been more pleased! The restaurant was very crowded, even on a Tuesday night, so we were unable to get a window seat, but the arched windows are so huge that the view can really... read more

Stopped in on a Sunday morning for breakfast on the patio. It was really lovely and the food was fresh and well prepared. If I have any complaint it was that they forgot the meat portion in the Breakfast Bowl I ordered but when I inquired they were quick to bring me a large side portion.

We had high expectations of this restaurant but felt a little let down. There was nothing particularly wrong with food it just was very exciting. The restaurant was very busy and noisy (it seemed to be THE place to go) but our service was ok. There was nothing that would make me rush back.

I really really was looking forward to a good meal and wanted to like the Ocean house. I ate outside and the view was so pretty and peaceful. There was a guy playing the guitar and he was great. It all went bad when the waiter came over and could barely speak English? I had to tell him 3 times... More

Beautiful location. Sunsets this time of year are behind building next door. I had striped bass which was very tasty. Perhaps could have been cooked about 2 min less. Husband had yellow fin tuna. Interesting sauce flavors. Cooked to order. Shortcake sliders for dessert were wonderful...intense fruit flavors. Yum!

We chose to eat outside at the patio bar. It was fantastic! The food was really high-quality, authentic and the people are friendly. The environment was perfect to let our children play with all the other wonderful families and children that were there while my wife and I enjoyed one another's company, the view and some cocktails. Will definitely be... More

The food lacked inspiration. The waitress did not ask why he left 1/2 of his... More

We stopped in late to have a drink and dessert in the bar area. The place was still busy but we had great service. I got the Ocean House Coffee to drink and it was amazing!! We also shared the chocolate bag sundae and it was incredible! Many people were still getting food, and it all looked so yummy. I... More

$50/Hour for the Nantucket Couch? Extortion plain and simple. There ought to be a law against such practices. Food was good but all was overshadowed by the sour taste left in the pit of my stomach by the gouging of the couch. Not to mention that no one tells you aforehand that the rental is $50/hr. They just say $50... More

The Ocean House has a wonderful location with a panoramic view. We spent our last night of a two week vacation having dinner there. While it was high season and extremely busy, I found the servers to be incredibly kind and capable. We were made to feel incredibly welcome, which isn't always the case elsewhere. The food was wonderful. Don't... More
