Great view

The views at this restaurant are amazing. We had the Cod, Rack of Lamb and Calimari. The Cod is very unique baked with Cape Cod Potato Chips. The Calamari comes with two sauces both excellent. The Lamb was cooked perfectly. It is always a treat to dine here. In the summer there is an outside bar.

Hit the main restaurant on this visit and it was amazing. Food was superb, wait staff were friendly and offered suggestions, and the ambience can't be beat. Whole different experience than sitting at the outside bar during the summer. Try this main restaurant and you won't be sorry. Make reservations though. Bar is small, so not much chance to just...

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.
