5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Extremely busy, but had great staff and very good food. Moderatley priced and well worth it, especially the Seabass!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

On our last night in Williamsburg, we found Oceans & Ale. So glad we did as it by far the best food that we had the whole week.

“Very good steak and seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I had the she crab soup. It was very good with a lot of crab. I would recommend trying it. My husband had the seafood pot pie. He enjoyed it. The food was very good. Don't be fooled because it is in a strip mall. It is worth a try.

“This was hard to review.....hit and miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

We just ate there for a very late lunch and we were all very hungry. I had the she crab soup and if was absolutely delicious. As I was finishing my soup I said, I hope that plate that has been sitting under the lamp(we could see the kitchen from our table) isn't mine. It was under the lamp for at least 15 min before they served it....to me. That ruined the food. But my husband and mother in law were thrilled with their choices.

“small treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We recently tried Oceans and Ale which was a new place for us and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere and the food was really good. We had a great waiter who was very accommodating. They also had a band there that night which was very nice. The only drawback for us was we had a long wait and the hostess didn't seem organized, but other than that we really had a good time. We would definitely go back.
