The food was kinda dry and tasteless. I had the swordfish which was just ok. My family had several other dishes that also seemed kind of bland. Great location on the water. Great wait staff. Descent price.

We ate at the tiki bar each night- the views are great. The staff was very prompt and courteous. The mahi tacos were delicious.

We enjoyed our time at Ocean Grill, especially the tiki bar on the pier. Very cool atmosphere to hang out on a nice evening and be over the water. The restaurant was your typical beach food and we were able to sit outside as well. They have several different areas you can be seated in, including an upstairs that is... More

It was ok this time. I was kinda sad to see the menu was the exact same as when we were there in October. The painting and remodel was nice but missed the special board upstairs.

My daughter really liked the mahi tacos. The drinks were really good. But the food was your typical beach food. I have had better. But it wasn't bad just average.

If you're on the beach, come on up to the lime green tiki bar, built on an old pier that's still standing. You can sit and have some yummy alcoholic drinks and catch that nice ocean breeze. You can order off of a short menu for things like steamed shrimp, pulled pork BBQ sandwich, cheeseburgers, fish tacos, etc. Take it... More

Ocean Grill is one of our favorite restaurants in the area, and we ALWAYS stop by for mahi tacos whenever we're at the beach...it's a must for us! I've seen others complain about the service; we've always had great service at Ocean Grill, but you do have to keep in mind that it's a beach-front grill and bar with a... More
