“Great food”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Definitely a "locals" place. The atmosphere is quite plain...it is filled with patio furniture. But the food and service are fabulous! I had the frilled seafood platter with the catch of the day - grouper, shrimp, & scallops. My husband had blackened chicken. He said it was the best he'd ever eaten. Prices are reasonable and the portions are plentiful. They also have a seafood market where you can purchase fresh seafood to cook yourself.

“Great for fresh fish”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

we have been to NSB many times and almost always make a trip to OS. We haven't ever eaten there. Its sort of a Deli. But always get take out to cook at our condo. The fish is always fresh according to what is in season. This time we got a delicious crab salad and some of the best Mahi Mahi we've had. We dab it with olive oil and this time sprinkled with herb and garlic seasining--you can use whatever and then baked it. We made a sauce with what was on hand--mayo,lime juice, dill and a little cocktail sauce. The fish there is reasonably priced too. Don't miss it!!

“Great food, local atmosphere”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by the owners of the bed and breakfast we stayed at...we visited for lunch on a Friday afternoon. Low key atmosphere, you can tell this is where the locals know to go. My husband and I both had blackened grouper sandwiches and fries...the sandwiches were so full of perfectly seasoned fish that we had to take some of the fish out to eat the sandwich! Very well seasoned and cooked, we enjoyed this restaurant very much and would definitely return on any future trips to the area.

“Quick, Easy and Good”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Ocean's is a small, simple place with delicious seafood. Seating is basic patio furniture and decor is minimal. Order at the counter and then food is brought to the table in carry out boxes. We both had the grouper, blackened and it was wonderful. It was seasoned perfectly and cooked just right. Cole slaw and bean salad were tasty. There is a counter full of fresh fish you can buy. They will also steam the shrimp and clams for you to take. Friendly counter person and pleasant experience overall.
