Great little local spot - the crab cakes were excellent and full of crab meat and no filler. Our party also ordered a fish custom prepared which great and tasty as well. Live music and it has been here forever for good reason.

This is a friendly, casual restaurant with great seafood. We arrived in Cambridge late on a holiday weekend and the hotel restaurants could not accommodate us. We found Ocean Odyssey and ended up being glad we couldn’t get in elsewhere. Everyone in our party was...More
