Some of the best seafood anywhere on the east coast! Clam strips, Scallops are world class! Great pizza, too! BUt the restaurant is so loud that visiting was next to impossible. Had to go outside to have a conversation!

You will never leave Ocean Pizza without a doggie bag. Our favorite is the clam strip dinner with crispy, hot steak fries and coleslaw. One dinner is enough for two with leftovers for the next day. Wonderful service and kid friendly.

Just had to have lunch here at our recent trip to New London with our grandson - the pizzas are the best - generous with the toppings, and the right amount of crust. We decided to start with a calamari appetizer to share - it was the best ever, tender, fried perfectly with a very generous portion. Cant wait for... More

Tried calling for 40 minutes but the phone was always busy, so I headed down in person. The place was packed and dinner hour was 30 minutes away. The staff was friendly and very efficient. I placed a take out order for 15 Grinders and 5 large Pizzas. The order was filled in 20 minutes. The food was amazing and... More

This is where my Mom usually takes us for dinner even though she promises to take us to that fancy resort that she often talks about. All those year I've been to the resort only once, pissa it is.

I haven't been here in a a while. However, there is a reason this restaurant has been so good for so long. I never am disappointed the the service, the food or the quality. Ocean Pizza has been around for at least 40-50 years. It was busy last night. Their pizza is average. I do not go there for the... More

Knowing I am moving from CT - out of state, I made my final pilgrimage to O.P. for the stuffed cold lobster roll. At $17.99 you will NOT be disappointed. It is stuffed with lobster, and a light dressing and no fillers (like celery, etc.). Loved it and my friend juggling between a wrap or fish and chips, selected pork... More

There are a few things you have and when you get them somewhere else no other place compares. That is how I feel about the eggplant grinder - I have been working in the same place within a mile for 12 years and for a treat several times a year I get the eggplant grinder. Never a disappointment. A good... More

This is the best pizza/grinder/seafood restaurant around--I've been coming here for years and it never disappoints. Even when it is jam packed the service is friendly and quick and the portions are enormous. Very fresh seafood--I don't know how they do it.

We live very close to NYC, where pizza is king, and we never miss an opportunity to dive into Ocean's pizza! It is the best. The crust is perfect, not thin but not too thick either. The pizza is very cheesy, just how we like it. Plus the service is very good and extremely friendly. We are always greeted with... More
