Out of the tourist path and somewhat hidden from view ... not flashy on the outside, but the quality of the meal and value is right at the top of Cape restaurants. Entrees are sensibly priced and offer excellent cuisine. Good wine list, great table service. highly recommended

We have dined at Academy Ocean Grille a half dozen times in the past few months. The menu is clever and not overwhelming. The food has been consistently very good. Although we think the hamburger should be thicker such that it can be truly cooked to order. The decor is really nice, but it seems the employees attire does not... More

They offer a clever variety of food options that -- on a sample of three diners -- were all tasty and well-prepared. Our service was excellent; food came out in a timely fashion but we were never rushed. This is not an elegant, gourmet, Michelin 3-star restaurant. It is a good honest grille serving good honest food that is fresh... More

There's more to a restaurant than serving up good food in a nice atmosphere, both of which Academy Ocean Grille can say they do well, but what about the mood of the place? We arrived for our reservation at 6:30 on a Wednesday night and I can't say we were greeted, but were checked in by word of our name... More

The menu looked impressive as far as food goes. The beer list was short but had a few choices that I was excited about. Service was quick. The jalapeño prosciutto poppers were amazing. I ordered the Moroccan Salmon which included a rice dumpling which happened to still be frozen. They brought me piping hot one promptly though. It all tasted... More

Three of us went recently and agreed it was the worst restaurant we remember visiting. The calamari appetizer was like chewing rubber bands and my entree of monkfish and scallops was drowned in a heavy cream sauce that was gross and rendered the fish invisible. I don't remember what others had but we were all unhappy. Would never consider going... More

Waiting..waiting....waiting. Food was good. Come here if you have no plans for the rest if the day. The service was awful.

Pleasant experience from booking to desert. We needed special accommodation for a member of our party that was on crutches and had to elevate his leg.They went out of their way to seat us. The waitress was helpful with wonderful suggestions. The food was outstanding and we saved room for great deserts.The restaurant is beautiful. I can't wait to return.
