We had dinner here Friday, you definitely need reservations. We had the crab cakes (a must!), wedge salad, scallop entree, and roasted chicken entree. Too full for dessert. All the food was delicious. The martinis were very good as well and a good size. The ambiance was nice. It's a classy place but as it is in a beachy area,... More

This was our second visit to the Ocean house. We made our reservation 4 months in advance, since it is very difficult to get one on short notice. Located on Depot Street in Dennis Port, this restaurant looks out onto the bay. It has an outside bar with tables which is lovely. A walk along the shore is possible, if... More

You really can't see the ocean at night so not a real Cape experience nor is the food as there is more of an Thai feel to basic items. It is always crowded and I fell over rated to my taste.

Service was excellent. Our server was super friendly and welcoming. We ordered the new age bento box, clam chowder, lazy man's lobster, filet mignon, and the chocolate molten cake. I would recommend everything! And they did a little happy birthday message on the dessert.

Great food and one of the best ocean views on Cape Cod. Service is excellent and staff are professional, efficient and friendly. I've been there with my wife many times , but also take friends. Always a pleasant dining experience.

Very good food. Wonderful location. Some tables have view of the water. Walk on beach after dinner. A little expensive.

Had a great summer night at the Ocean House. The restaurant itself is closed Mondays, but they keep the kitchen open and serve a limited menu at the outdoor bar overlooking the beach. Nice raw bar and sushi menu, and we had a crazy good shrimp, bacon, roasted corn pizza. That and they have a great drink menu.

I have been invited to Ocean House 3 or 4 times and each time, I found it to be extremely crowded and noisy. The food is not exceptional for the price and neither is the service. However, it does have the ambiance of the water but at night, it is difficult to experience the glory.

From the parking valet, to front desk, to our server and finally to the food presentation (eye appeal and quality of both meals) Ocean House is spot on once again. Special place for a special meal (Birthday).

Can't say enough about Ocean House!! No matter what we get it's always fantastic!! Love the lobster ravioli and the calamari is the best I've ever had. We order it every time we go - huge portion could feed six! Obscenely delicious desserts and the Ocean House coffee drink is to die for! Yum, just thinking about this place makes... More
