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

Just returned from dinner with out of town guests. We started with a reasonable, but really good very cold bottle of Wente Sauvignon Blanc on special at the great price of $29.00. Then my friend & I shared the tuna appetizer (yummy!) and then I had the salmon, a meaty nice slice of salmon, served with chutney, carrots, broccoli and... More

Fine creative menu, great service, modest prices, consistent. The menu varies from tapas and burgers (bar only) to fine dining in a Cape casual atmosphere.

After a wait of over an hour for our reservation and with profuse apologies from the hostess and owner, we were finally seated on the patio for dinner. In retrospect, I am not sure why they couldn't have seated us at one of the empty marble-topped tables out there if diners hadn't vacated the tables being used. Anyway, we thought... More

Went there for the Lobster Roll. It did not taste fresh. Chips were stale. Home made pickles did not taste that great. We've had this same lunch here several times and it was much better. We will not go back again.

We returned to The Academy Ocean Grille after a 9 year hiatus. At that time, there was a different owner and the reputation was very good. We were very pleased that this is still a very good find in Orleans for a well prepared dinner. My nut encrusted halibut was crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside; Perfect!... More

We visited the Academy Ocean Grille with friends. Four people. It was a Sunday night, mid-spring and so still off-season on Cape Cod. Clearly there were some locals. The place was not filled. We had a reservation and were greeted cordially and were promptly offered a nice round table in a corner. I started with a house salad - greens... More

We felt welcome here from the moment we stepped in. The woman who greeted us made us feel instantly relaxed, and we were lucky enough to also have her as our server. Food was yummy, the mixed drink I ordered was surprisingly strong (woohoo!) but also good. Service was attentive and well timed. We were able to enjoy our meal... More
