I had dinner at the Ocean View one evening in May 2014 prior to taking the plane home to Juneau.
As noted in a previous review, this place has a little of everything but focuses on Mexican and Italian cuisine. I wasn't tremendously hungry so I opted for Italian inasmuch as knowing from previous encounters that their burritos here are huge. Ketchikan being a coastal town, I thought the scampi parmigiana sounded good, so I ordered that.
As it turned out, the Italian portions are also huge! This was a heavy, filling meal that I was still digesting the following morning! The food was good but it was a lot. The shrimp had the taste and texture of chicken, and I had to scrape the sauce and cheese off one of them to ensure I got what I ordered. I confirmed the presence of shrimp. My meal also came with a salad and complimentary order of chips and salsa. The salsa was really good. The service was friendly and attentive.
Ocean View is one of Ketchikan's more elegant dining establishments and is popular with the locals. The food may not be five-star but the portions are really big and I saw a lot of doggie bags go out the door.
