One of the biggest draws for Ocean House is the view, so it is tough to get a window seat. The food was pretty good but not as good as I'd expect for the crazy-high prices. The desserts were all fantastic and the service was good. If it was located in Boston or New York, it could never get away... More

The Ocean House is a favorite dining place for year-round Cape Codders and visitors alike. It has two things going for it: an outstanding menu and the waterfront dining with a sunset. Because of this, the 6:30 seating is the most popular and busiest, so book early. The Ocean House makes it very difficult to make a decision, because they... More

Not only was the food terrific, but the ambiance was a cut above! A little pricey, but a really special place!

For a special night out this is the restaurant that we go to on the Cape. It is a very classy restaurant and the food and the service are outstanding. Because of its popularity, reservations are a must. The only downside comment that I have is that, because of the very dim lighting, we found it hard to read the... More

Found out the hard way that they have no insurance to cover damage caused by their valets. Not only did we have to pay the car repair bill but it went on our driving record/insurance and we didn't even cause it! You would think a restaurant this classy would work with us...but nope. I always loved it there but this... More

From the minute you walk in, you will be pleasantly surprised! Ocean House always exceeds expectations! We particularly love the cozy bar area for dining, entertainment, and the best ambience! Oh yeah, and the views of Nantucket Sound are super!

Every summer, our family gathers on Cape Cod for vacation. This includes my wife's brothers (one from TX), sister-in-laws, close friends, and cousins. About 7 years ago, my wife and I visited the Ocean House for an anniversary dinner, had a wonderful experience, and proceeded to relay said experience to the family. It was decided that, while the grandparents graciously... More

A great place right on the ocean and the food is top notch! During the off season, the restaurant offers a three for thirty menu ( app, main course, and dessert). Great place to bring a date or that special someone. We visit this restaurant often during the off season as it is difficult to get reservations there during the... More

We have had several wonderful dinners at the Ocean House over the last few years.We also enjoy the outside bar in the summer. The setting is great- right on the water but it is also a wonderful winter spot especially in the bar. There is a roaring fire with the ocean as a great backdrop. The wedge of lettuce and... More

The food and atmosphere was just lovely. However we did not call soon enough for a reservation so we waited over an hour for a seat in their lounge side, We were to call weeks in advance and next time we will because it was worth it,.
