I have visited this restaurant often but this time I really put it to the test. 5 PM New Year Eve and Oceana's was one of two restaurants open in Avon. Even at 5 PM the restaurant was full with a waiting line, seating was a 25 minute wait. Since our choices were limited we had a drink at the... More

It was a girls weekend and 5 of us had lunch here. We were so glad we did; all of us loved our meal. We needed to go boxes,, there was so much left over. It was delicious, I would definitely go again! We went back for dessert to go after we were done shopping.

Ate here with business partners. Waited outside, with the mosquitoes, briefly. I recommend waiting at the bar. Our food was proportioned well and tasted good. The place stayed busy. It appeared to have either a lot of locals or fisherman eating there.

Even in the off season the parking lot was always full when we drove by so we had to give Oceana a try. It didn't take long to be seated and the service was fast and efficient. We split a bowl of delicious crab and corn chowder to start. I had that day's special, the fried oysters with really terrific... More

We had dinner and breakfast at Oceana's, both were great. Because the restaurant is small, dinner was a bit noisy, but the food quality made up for it. Breakfasts are really delicious.

We used Trip advisor to find this little gem in the heart of Avon. Our vacation was for a full week and we ate breakfast here 3 times, it made that big of an impression! Everything is made to order so they can cater to your needs if you need something tweaked. They offer vegetarian dishes as well but you... More

We recently ate here and was pleasantly surprised. It was quite busy and there is not a lot of seating. Our order came pretty quick and was good. Our table had grilled salmon, sesame crusted tuna, and past with scallops and Mahi. They were all very good. We would come here again.
