The Ocean House is the perfect place for a mother-daughter getaway. We do this at least once a year and it never fails to disappoint. The property is spectacular and the accommodations are sublime. The whole feel at the Ocean House is one of a huge extended family from the staff to guests. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly. I... More

The Ocean House is one of our favorite places to go when we're looking for a special lunch or dinner experience. With that said, we have never visited their Seaside Terrace until today and what a treat. The Hostess was very sweet and accommodating. Our waitress was informed, courteous and truly made our experience even more pleasant, if that was... More

Stopped for lunch around 2 PM on a Summer Tuesday afternoon... decided to eat on the terrace outside because it was a beautiful sunny but not too warm day. My 90-year-old mother loved the peach Dels frozen lemonade; I had regular Del's. Took a chance and ordered the cold melon gazpacho. (Asked the waitress if it would be too spicy... More

I had lunch with two friends on the patio with an incredible view on the sea. The service was extremely friendly and the food excellent. We enjoyed every minutes spent there for an incredible and restful break on our trip.

We travel the country and Canada researching, exploring and visiting historic grand hotels. We've been to virtually every famous one. This was once one that dates to 1860 but because it was crumbling was demolished and rebuilt with some components saved from its predecessor. Make no mistake, other than it is not truly historic, it is truly grand. It is... More

We have been traveling to this area for two decades. We have gone through the transformation of the Ocean House from the tear down to the rebuild. It is an amazing property. This review is for the Veranda Restaurant on the side porch shown in the photo on the right. There is a dress code for the entire property. None... More

I recently took a day trip to check out this easily accessible town and beach. Having lunch at the Ocean House was undeniably one of the most pleasurable hours spent this summer. It is beautiful sitting overlooking the beach and ocean you may think you are on a movie set. I can recommend the Lobster roll and tuna salad over... More
