Over rated in our view. Chef is creative, but thin portions at high prices and not much flavor. Also, it is BYOB, which is fine if you know in advance.

Good seafood according to my wife. But we both agree. Their clam chowder is the worst we have ever had, including store bought. Honestly they should be ashamed of their soup and a new englander would be appauled. Watery, very few clams, flavorless. I personally wouldnt go back. Id take the 45 minute ride to city island

Not inexpensive, but the BYOB policy keeps the overall cost within reason, and the quality of the food and service is excellent. Small, seating probably fewer than 25 people total, Ocean House typically has a very good selection of fresh oysters and is known (surprise, surprise) for its seafood. Reservations aren't taken over the phone -- you stop by, leave... More

Interesting place...You have to show up in order to make a reservation for that evening. But, everybody does it...and nobody complains! Personally, I think it's cute and old-school. Besides, who's going to complain about a place that has great seafood, and is a BYO!! Stop complaining and enjoy the wonderful time you're about to have!

I had wanted to try this place for a while, and were lucky enough to go for Mother's day, the place is small but uncluttered, so it feels very spacious. We brought our own wine, there is a small corkage fee, not bad considering that they chilled our wine, had the appropriate glasses and were prompt with refills. to start... More

We went here on a week night as we live in Croton and have seen all the long lines on the weekends. Everything we had was well prepared and tasted wonderful. The service was attentive. I would not go here on a weekend because the seating is too close together. Overall very nice place.

On a weeknight (Wed) there was no trouble getting a table at 6:30. There's a reason they don't take reservations. We had a wonderful evening with a river view in an intimate, friendly environment. My husband and I each had a fish dish and both were excellent. The appetizers ( mussels and arugula salad) were wonderful, too.

I had not been back to Ocean House since they first opened. I was very happy to return. My husband did not like the clam chowder when we were first there since it is not the traditional thick chowder. This time we both enjoyed the food. The lobster roll is excellent as were the French Fries and cole slaw served... More

I went here with my husband for dinner and was extremely disappointed with the food that I ordered. I had the salmon dish with mashed potatoes and string beans. The dish was bland with no taste and just warm. I guess their specialty is oysters. I couldn't even eat my dish, I got a doggie bag. So don't order anything... More
