We only dined here twice during our recent one week stay at The Ocean Club East. Our first meal was a late lunch on arrival day. Our waitress Cindy was friendly and kept the beer flowing. We ordered several items off of the menu and were hoping they'd please our palate enough so that we could return for future meals-a convenient spot. The wings packed a bit of heat and were a hit. I never turn down the opportunity to sample conch fritters, however, these were far too greasy for me as well as the fries. The grouper sliders were served on fresh homemade rolls; the best part of this meal. The fish was lacking flavor, though it was moist and the portion size was decent. As this was the first stop on our Caribbean adventure, I must admit I was extremely disappointed in the music selection playing-70's Donna Summer, Motown-Supremes and the like. Where was the Reggae and Junkanoo? No Caribbean vibe flowing with that type of music. Our second visit was for dinner around 7pm on a Friday night. This time service was just so-so with our male server not matching up to Cindy's level of service. We ordered a fish sandwich, a club sandwich and a Mexican pizza. The sandwiches were decent in size and taste, but the pizza was a huge miss. The Mexican pizza ingredients on the menu were listed as: refried beans, jalapenos, chicken, black olives, onions and cheddar cheese. This pizza tasted nothing like a Mexican style pizza and had no visible signs or tasting of refried beans, but an overpowering taste of tomato sauce. We left disappointed and swore that we would not waste another meal here.
I was eager to try a pear and chicken sandwich that I found on their online menu, but was told by Cindy that it hadn’t been an available item for quite some time. It is no longer on the menu, so I am assuming they’ve updated that page.
The Cabana Bar and Grille is a convenient spot for resort guests, but with so many other dining options available I’d recommend venturing out often during your visit.
