I live mid Cape, my boyfriend lives in Eastham. He drives by the Academy Ocean Grill at least once a day and has told me that he never sees cars there so why would you want to go to someplace where you never see any people go in. I'm really glad we did. I got a Cape Cod daily deal... More

My wife and I had dinner there last night and it was fantastic. My appetizer was Academy Littleneck clams that are made with bacon, garlic butter, white wine, grated romano and seasoned breadcrumbs. They were spectacular. The serving was 10 to 12 clams. For entrees, my wife had Braised Beef Raviolis w/Portobellow mushrooms, roasted shallots, Madeira demi-glaze and asparagus. She... More

Hadn't been to this restaurant in a couple of years and went for dinner on a Friday evening. It wasn't quite as good as we remembered. The host who met us on the deck seemed distant and uninvolved. The restaurant wasn't very crowded, which was unusual for a Friay night. The food was good. The service was ok. We weren't... More

Do not let the quaint exterior fool you! Inside you will find a beautiful setting with wonderful food and outstanding service. Curry shrimp fitters are sooooooo good! The veal was tender and the wait staff where like family. Great place to eat if visiting the cape.

My wife and I had different salads with seafood added. Her salad was a special with sliced peaches. Everything very fresh. The pizzas that went by looked spectacular.

A lovely place....beautifully decorated with artwork but simply furnished and cozy. The bar is small but adorable and comfy. The host and the servers were the best...anticipating all our needs and then some!. We had a party of 6 and originally a screw up was made on opentable with our reservation but the host worked some magic and was able... More

Food is average, so it is okay, but would never be my first choice. They do have a small bar and it is fun to sit there are share some snacks.

Great Service. Waitress there when you needed her, not when you didn't. Appetizer wonderful for both: marinated lamb and pot stickers. Entre, great variety and new takes on traditional favorite. Nice atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Being a frequent restaurant patron with many years of all kinds of dining out experience the Academy Ocean Grill is a tremendous disappointment. The food is mostly good but that's as good as it gets. Aside from a lack of hospitality, tired decor, stingy drinks and a cramped seating area the owner, clearly a man who does not want to... More
