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

Delightful experience! Our waitress was friendly, courteous as well as attentive. Food was delicious. Swordfish Au Poivre - a must try!

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.

We had heard so much about the Academy Ocean Grill, and we passed it many times driving through Orleans on Tre 28, that we finally got to go there for dinner in July. This was a dreary, wet Sunday evening, and there was no problem getting a reservation the same day for 6:30. This should have been a sign of... More

Just OK, which was a disappointment since I remembered it being very good a few years back. Atmosphere is good, not too noisy, service is good, but the food was dull and uninspired.

We returned to the Academy Ocean Grille for a second visit this vacation because we found the food, atmosphere, and service to be outstanding. If you are attending a play at the nearby playhouse, the Grille will make sure that you finish your meal on time. The menu offers "lighter fare" , and you have a choice of dining on... More

Good find! After days of family-friendly fare, we had a night out and wanted to find someone nice/upscale, but not snooty/wildly overpriced b/c its on the Cape in summer. This hit the spot -- nice menu of seafood, chicken & steaks (with cheaper casual fare also like burgers). Seafood fra diavalo was excellent, and the steak frites were also good.... More
