One of my favorites!

Everything they offer is wonderful! I love eating at Ocean House. It is a nuisance that they don't take reservations, but the food is so good that you work around it. They also don't have a liquor license-but they allow you to bring your own and charge a corkage fee. If you go when it is... read more

Some of the best meals I have ever had! Always outstanding food from the appetizers to the mains! The specials are especially good like the soft shell crabs in season! Amazing, consistently outstanding food!

Like a hungry barracuda discovering a school of tasty minnows, we were referred for dinner to this gem on a trip back from Manitoga/The Russel Wright Design Center [not be to be missed for nature and design lovers]. About 6 pm on a late spring evening, we parked on the road across the street from this caboose and entered. Greeted... More

Ocean House never disappoints. Housed in a former railroad car-style diner, the food, service and vibe is wonderful. Seafood is always fresh and perfectly prepared. Heavenly.

Consistent, great seafood. It's a BYOB, which is awesome. Only problem, no reservations and it's a very small place. Get there at 5, put your name on a list, and Paula, the owner will call when your table is ready. Always delicious.

The food is delicious and the service terrific. Bring your own bottle of wine -- they will open and pour. There can be a wait - if you're willing to eat a little before 7, you will have a shorter wait and maybe no wait. Delicious seafood, great desserts, and wonderful service. Highly recommend.
