“Moon over Miami, Mr. Nice Guy, Good Eats- What More Could You Want?”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

My husband and I have been talking about coming to Black Pointe Marina to eat at Ocean Grille for a long time and finally made it out last night for dinner and to listen to the band Mr. Nice Guy (classic 60, 70, 80's rock). It was a beautiful, breezy night with a full moon- perfect for an outdoor meal. We parked, walked into the rustic restaurant and gave our name to the hostess, who said it would be about a 10 minute wait. It was about 2 minutes. We were seated at a good table- overlooking the bottom level and the marina, not too close to the band and dance floor. Our waitress was super nice and helpful with recommendations. I told her we'd never eaten there before so she gave us her favorite choices. We ended up getting three appetizers, instead of dinner, but the hogfish that she recommended sounded really good, as did a fish dish with an avocado cream and salsa. These dishes were more pricey- $20 and up. We got the smoked fish dip, tuna tetaki and cracked conch and they were all really good- fresh and tasty. The fish dip came out in a huge fried tortilla shell- nice presentation, with pickled jalapeno peppers, banana peppers and chopped onions. No need to ask for anything here. She also brought saltines and hot sauce- perfect. It was a nice portion and around $9 (I think). A little pricey, but you're paying for the ambience. The ambiance, was outdoorsy with a wide range of people-, from couples on dates, to families with kids, to baby boomers there for Mr. Nice Guy, to a couple of drunk fishing-type guys (behind us), to single ladies and old guys on the prowl. People watching is entertaining here. There was also a birthday party of 40-somethings going on at the dock. We ordered a special- Tuna Poke, but they were out of it, so got the Tuna Tetaki- really fresh tuna, coated in sesame seeds, cooked, sliced and served with a sauce. Really good. We were thinking of getting the conch fritters, but our waitress recommended the cracked conch, because there was more conch, less dough. We did and it came out in peices, fried perfectly (not greasy) and served with an asian chili dipping sauce. It was really good, as well. With the beer and wine, it was a perfect dinner. Our bill came to $70, but that was with 3 glasses of wine (Barefoot Pinot Grigio) and quite a few beers. The band was good and for a Friday or Saturday night in Miami (actually Cutler Bay) a wonderful way to spend it. The waitress said it had been crazy busy all day, which is why they were out of the specials (we'd also ordered oysters but they were out). All in all, I really enjoyed it, would go back especially to listen to a good band and dance.

“Second time better!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Well we did returned. Our server was Christina, outstanding friendly service; very helpful. The kitchen here ROCKS. We asked for sauté calamari instead of fried and it was done! Clean bathrooms, restaurant. Fabulous band/Music. The view is divine!! The Lobster Bisque is a winner, as the wings we took 2 orders to go. I still feel the owners should accommodate the Pinot Grigio wine drinkers to a bottle purchase instead of a glass for $5.00 . Hello!! Love the friendliness, ambiance, outstanding lichen food and last but obvious amazing view in this restaurant . Again, we will be back.
One huge suggestion to owners/management: the tall table chairs are awesome; please find same for the small tables; because they are annoying and not as comfortable to be sitting in. Beside; looks like eyesore since the others are so good looking, comfortable and new! Happy New Year!

Reviewed December 22, 2012

The food was great, and the atmosphere was good. The service was good as well but sometimes a little slow. Overall great place to go! Kind of hard to find at night.

“Good Place to Pull Into Port if You Are On the INTERCOASTAL”
Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

The blackened dolphin tacos, conch chowder, shrimp po boy and fish Ruben all got thumbs up from our group. Eating on the dock is casual Florida dining at its best.
