Make a Reservation-Dependably Great Food

Make a reservation and avoid waiting to be seated. The food here is delicious and the portions are extra generous. They serve extra large sodas and a bucket of bread as soon as you order and there is usually not a long wait once you have ordered. The food always arrives hot and I have never had... read more

After outlet shopping in AC my daughter and I stopped at Cousins for dinner. The food was amazing. We have been in Ocean City for over 10 summers and never really went to this part of the island for dinner. Big mistake. We had one of the best meal ever. The tortellini with chicken was delicious as was the stuff... More

August 14, 2015 What a disappointment. After reading all the reviews we thought this restaurant was going to be a winner. I should have known when I called an hour before and was able to get a reservation. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 2 children. When we arrived the woman at the hostess desk looked at us as...

We decided to try Cousins restaurant because it was walking distance to our summer rental. We had a very good meal, and the service was just perfect!

Wife and I headed to Somets Ppint for our anniversary dinner. A wait of an hour and forty-five minutes was ridiculous. So we headed back to OCNJ and cruised the streets, looking for an place to eat. We happened on Cousins. I pulled up to the curb, googled Cousins, and said to the wife, "Let's give it a try." What... More

I've heard for years that you can't beat Mildred's in Strathmere for Italian food down the shore. Well that is incorrect, as Cousins is much better in my opinion. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me is that the atmosphere is a bit lacking. You're basically eating in what was a garage at one point. Incredibly low... More

Do not show up at 4:30 without a reservation??? Huffy, old lady that seated us seemed really put out about it. So she puts 4 of us in this little itty bitty table for 2. waitstaff prompt as just opening. Family style salad brought to table drowning in dressing. Was delicious ,but would like the option of keeping it light.... More

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.
