Lots of good reviews about this place but I found it average at best ordered stuffed flounder and while the flounder was good the crab was not so good. Not lump crabre but just a weak stuffing. Also had coconut shrimp that was right out of the freezer section of a Sysco truck. Sides were weak as well and all... More

I've never dined in here but we always order takeout and Oceanside never disappoints. Their portions are HUGE so you will be more than satisfied. I got the fried shrimp basket with the veggie of the day (broccoli). I got about 12 shrimp and a large serving of perfectly cooked broccoli. Great dinner!

Perfect for family dining! Portions are great and their clams are to die for! I have been before, when Oceanside only did take out, but their dining area was very nice.

Always fresh, always good. Walking distance from my summer home. Reasonable prices. Have never eaten in here but people do. Friendly and really care whether you enjoy their food.

This is the fifth time we dined at Oceanside. We have always gotten our seafood broiled and it was always excellent. This time I had fried shrimp. There was way too much breading on the shrimp. Also the calamari was almost entirely breading, had no flavor, and was very hard. My husband had the broiled dinner and said it was... More

I just visited Oceanside over the weekend for my birthday dinner with my family. They had a sign at the front asking for guests to excuse any delays in service because most of their staff went back to college. Our waiter seemed extremely frazzled - he did an ok job, but the restaurant was not very crowded while we were... More

We had our rehearsal dinner here in 2008. We were able to use entire restaurant for a September wedding and it was BYOB. Now years later, we still love it. Michelle and her staff are great. We now take our two girls there every year. The food is fresh and filling. The She Crab soup could be a meal in... More

We ate here twice on our recent trip and here are my comments: Dungeness Crab was the best we ever had, Broiled Seafood Platter was good except for the previously frozen lobster tail which was tasteless, however the scallops and flounder were perfectly prepared and fresh, All You Can Eat Snow Crab on Thursdays was very good, the fresh Steamed...

Quick take out order response at 5:30 mid-week. Broiled foods were very good, cup of 'Crab' thin on crab, 'Lightly fried' foods not so good, excessive breading, and then the sides of fries very good, coleslaw not so good, and the 'veggie of the day' bland. Picked-up as it came from the kitchen, only had to walk a block and... More
