It was my first time at Ocean House. I went with friends who love the place. I found the tiny space extremely noisy even though it was only half full (early Thursday night). The food was good but nothing extraordinary, and the entrees were small for a $29 price tag. I chose the sauteed skate, maybe 4 or 5 oz... More

Great place, lovely staff, great food. It's tiny and they don't take reservations BUT if you stop by early you can get on the list for the day and come back at your time slot. Bring your wine with you and they'll pour if for you. Never fails to please.

I have eaten here several times a few years ago, but due to the reservation policy, have had a hard time getting in until tonight. My husband and I went for an early dinner to avoid the crowds. There were only two other tables seated besides us. Our waitress was very helpful and friendly. My husband had the grilled calamari... More

I wish I could be positive in reviewing this restaurant, but they really rubbed me the wrong way. Today I went there for dinner with my friend, we brought a bottle of wine, cork fee at $6.00. At the end of the meal I opened the second bottle (twist cork) just to try a sip of my Friend's wine -... More

Everything is fresh and delicious but the space is so tight it's not at all comfortable. You have a hard time not getting involved with the conversation of the person sitting next to you. Go early and it's better.

Not worth the price though the staff was nice. When you need to season your food yourself, there is something wrong. Also, the seafood tasted like it was rapidly defrosted. Calamari was rubbery and fish didn't taste very fresh. I hope this was an isolated experience, but it don't plan on going back.

VERY small railroad car type location. Only open Tue-Sat after 5pm. Often have a line waiting in nice weather. The food is EXCELLENT, the service good and friendly. VERY pricey, but if you want amazing seafood, this IS the place,

The menu and food are really great and makes me feel we could be at the NJ or Cape Cod shores.The food is wonderful, the service attentive, the Hostess is lovely and thoughtful. It is however a very small place (a converted box car diner I think) so it's loud and often very crowded. Plan to go early if your... More

Possibly the smallest restaurant I have been to. There are maybe 5 tables and a small bar area. Ocean house is a BYOB. Keep that in mind if you would like alcohol with your meal. With that being said we loved our dinner. The food was very enjoyable and we plan to return in the future.

Delicious food, incredible desserts. We arrived before 5pm and waited on line, since reservations are not accepted. Service was excellent. Plenty of choices - I had scallops, which were a special for the evening, my nieces had Lobster Rolls, and my sister had the Seared Tuna. She requested that it be rare - it came out medium. The waitress quickly... More
