We are back again a year later and still Love, Love, LOVE this place! There is a main restaurant with several options for dining (fully air conditioned with good views upstairs, halfway outside/under fans downstairs, or fully outside on the pier. The tiki bar itself is at the end of the pier (which ends where the waves hit the sand).... More

We loved the tiki bar outside, with very cold drinks and sandwiches to eat as your overlooking the ocean. Inside ocean grill is nicely decorated and clean, food was fine. But for the experience of the only beach restaurant, Eat at the Tiki bar!! It's a must:)

We have been coming to CB for many years and this was not our first experience eating at the Ocean Grill & Tiki Bar, however it's been a few years since our last visit and the menu has changed. The menu seemed quite a bit smaller and our waiter had trouble relaying the specials. Most of the fresh catch fish... More

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.
