While visiting New Smyrna Beach last week, my family and I had a great dinner at Ocean's Seafoods. From the grilled seafood platter containing red snapper, shrimp, and scallops to the steamed spiced shrimp, there were no complaints, only rave reviews. We went back two days later for a load of steam spiced shrimp and key lime pie takeout to go with steaks at our condo. They also have a great fresh seafood counter where you can take home and cook it your way. Can't wait to go back next year.

We went there not knowing what to expect, we had been told it was very good and read some good reviews. When we went inside we were ambushed with a nsaty fishy smell. ( fish don't smell bacteria that grows on fish smell) the atmoshere was really poorly done, the tables were all hodge podge and not in a good way the decor had little effort. The women working the register was salty local with out the charm. The prices were pretty good but the food wasnt. The spiced steamed shrimp had no flavor and was over cooked. The butter it came with was like a butter jelly, it was nasty. The blackend mahi sandwich i had was ok, but the blackend flavor had no spice. My wife had a combo with grouper scallops and shrimp, all blackend. Every thing looked good but the shrimp were tuff and and it all tasted powdery and had no flavor. Everything was self serve, you get your own cup, your own drink and throw away your own trash so dont bother tipping much ( wish i would have known that before i tipped). The ice tea earn only had enough tea to fill my cup half way so i told the lady behind the counter and she said "then we are out for the night" it was 6:30 on a tuesday. All the reviews talk about how freash the food is because its attached to a seafood market. But all that stuff has been frozen just like everywhere else. Most of it isn't found locally or was out of season. Way to many places in town way better.

Was preparing Boston scrod for twelve and Ocean's came through with a fresh catch that was priced right. I could have bought out the whole case if I was entertaining more guests! Sparkling clean establishment and the restaurant menu is very appealing. Friendly market service, too.

The blackened grouper was delicious... However, skip all sides except the fries or onion rings... The others were not flavorful and seemed a bit aged. If staying to eat, order at the counter. Quick service. If take out, call ahead.
