The ocean view from the bar on the pier and the fresh seafood were great, however, the bartender could use a lesson or three in friendly customer service. Every time anyone ordered anything she kind of grunted and looked put off. As a veteran of the service industry, if you don't like it, find an office job for the government... More

We loved the open, casual atmosphere at this restaurant. The Tiki bar has an awesome selection of drinks,a fun atmosphere, and great bartenders. The food is always hot and delicious....and the crab bisque is unforgettable!! Our waitress, Tasha, had tons of tables, but made us feel like we were her only customers. She was amazing. We had a wonderful time... More

Very casual ocean front atmosphere. We had the blackened fish tacos and they were excellent! Kid friendly and decent beer selection.

Every time we stay on Pleasure Island we eat on the pier at Ocean Grill & Tiki Bar. The fish tacos are a favorite, but the crab cakes are a must. Beer is cold and sitting outside, Oceanside cannot be beat. Service is superb.

This is a great place with a great vibe. It sits on a pier on the beach. Kids are playing in the sand below, the beer is cold, the views are spectacular, and the blackened mahi tacos are excellent. I will definitely go back!

We chose to eat upstairs because of the beautiful view. The Ocean Grill house salad and swordfish were delicious! My husband's seafood platter was huge! Hot French fries would be the only way that the meal could have been improved.

Good seafood and fun location. Has a bar at the end of a pier - makes waiting for a table go by much faster.

Sit on the pier and enjoy shrimp and oysters and crab legs. Bartender makes awesome drinks, whatever you want. Love coming here.
