A long time OC goer took me there 4 years ago. When 18 family members all asked me where to go for dinner, I called for reservations right away. The food is terrific, large portions and everyone loved their meal. It is not a formal place and parking is limited but well worth it.

Cousins is a small beach town restaurant with plenty of beach town charm. You can eat on the porch or in the dining area. On the menu is a very nice assortment of really delicious meals. A little more expensive than some in town but truly worth it.This summer, give Cousins a try. I'll bet you won't be disappointed. I... More

My wife had the Pasta With Clams on the twilight menu. It was one of the best tasting pasta dishes ever. I had the Veal Parmigiana off the Twilight menu and it delicious. The prices on the twilight menu make it an AWESOME DEAL!!

Back to Cousins...still good but... Our meal was good but the portion sizes didn't make sense. My wife had the chicken parm and the plate was enough for three. Price was fair to say the least. I had the stuffed shells...three very large shells and very good but that was all. No other pasta, no sides...just the three shells in... More

We went here on our last night in town because we heard good things. Everyone is right, HUGE portions. We ordered an appetizer- big mistake. After the complimentary bread, and the mussels appetizer, we were just about full. When our huge meals came, we had to box it up to go! The staff felt so bad they offered us dessert... More

I wish I liked this place more than I did. We were traveling with my parents, this is their kind of restaurant. Big portions, friendly waitstaff. I had the Salmon Oscar special. Sauce was not tasty, it had separated and there was lots of butter/oil swimming around. Salmon was okay once I scrapped the sauce off. Crab was ground up--big... More

Everything tasted excellent, from the calamari appetizer we got, to the salad (the dressing was so good) and to my crab stuffed flounder. The only negative would be that we werent able to eat inside where it is a bit less cramped. Nonetheless, very good food and will be back.

My family and my brother in law's family took my in laws out to dinner for their birthdays this past weekend at Cousin's Restaurant in Ocean City. Everything we had was delicious. We shared the tomato, basil, roasted peppers, and mozzarella drizzled with balsamic glaze and that was very good and fresh. We also shared the Bruschetta, which was very... More
