We love this place. We like to just sit at the bar for some drinks and good food. My dad always wants the chowder. A few years ago they underwent a beautiful remodel and have great take out service!

The dimly lit décor and full length bar is definitely geared toward adults; and families may find it a bit pricey to dine. Ambience could easily be compared to a Peppermill Restaurant with its scattered greenery; however, it is pretty tight-quarters as you wind pass crowded tables to your seating. Food suggestions: 1) Definitely try the chowder served in a bread bowl and 2) Steer clear of the Louisiana Cajun Fried Catfish (was unseasoned, overcooked, and dry). Warning... restaurant is nestled in a mini-strip mall type location- so parking is very limited.

Not inexpensive but well worth the price. We had very tender salmon and haddock. The fish chowder was delicious too. I would go back again.

We can't stop going back to the OFC when we're in Orange County, and always set this as the meeting place for old friends. The setting is comfortably classy, the service is always truly professional and efficient, and the seafood is always the freshest. We won't bore you with the details, because everything is delicious, and their wines are very reasonably priced. It's not inexpensive, but you get top value for your money.

Absolutely love everything about this place! Beautiful ambiance! Spectacular bar! Great Happy Hour! $5 martinis! Dinner & service never disappoint. I had the grilled swordfish this evening which was delicious. My husband had the crab legs which were huge & tasty. Clam chowder & ceaser salads are wonderful. Hot fudge cake & fresh peach desserts were to die for. Ample parking. A definite favorite. Only drawback is no reservations, but seating is usually pretty quick. We personally love the bar booths for dinner. You won’t be sorry you went here.
