Not as good as we remember! But...

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... read 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

I had dinner at Cousins last June and it was fair. A group of friends wanted to dine at Cousins and we were invited. 9 of us had 7:30 reservations. The table was ready and service was excellent. We all had rooms at Harrah's and did some pre game cocktails at the Golden Nugget Deck Bar. Ocean City is a... More

Just went to Cousin's last night for the first time in many years. We have been coming to OCNJ for well over 20 years and decided to go to Cousin's again. It was terrible! It all began when the four of us were seated at a table that was about 3' x 2'. We should have realized that was maybe... More

We went to Cousin's on a random mid-week day, prior to the real tourist season starting. The place was empty, except for us and one other couple. More staff present than customer's so the service was excellent. Our server (Rachel) was great and very informative about the specials, etc. Special orders are easy as everything was made to order. All... More

I've been traveling to Ocean City for 30 plus years and never knew about this great little Italian restaurant. My family went there on a Friday evening with no reservations on the first weekend in August. And we had no problem around 6PM getting a table. The fresh breads and salad were just wonderful. Had a few apps before dinner... More

My wife and I dined here on Labor Day weekend and found the meals, once again, very enjoyable. They have since repainted and re-arranged the seating (less high backed wood booths and more comfortable wood chairs replacing the one piece vinyl chairs of old). We both dined on the grilled salmon, mixed vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes and found everything... More
