“Awesome crab cakes!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

The atmosphere is definitely 'no frills' as others have described, but you can tell this is a hugely popular place, as it was SO busy. It was awfully hot in there, too, which I did not enjoy. However, the food was delicious! I had blackened crab cakes, three bean salad, and cole slaw. All was fantastic. We also purchased some seafood from the market area to take home and cook, which was wonderful. I agree with other reviewers that the lady at the counter could've been slightly more friendly, but she was also super busy, so perhaps that explains it.

The only weird thing was that the first three days we stopped by Ocean's, it was closed. Not quite sure why, but at least they finally opened one day while we were there on vacation!

“Go for seafood, stay for key lime pie”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

No frills beach seafood market and diner. Seems to be primarily take out but we received excellent service at its small indoor seating area. Order at the counter. Very casual and noisy atmosphere with food in styrofoam but you forget all that once you get your food. Shrimp basket was large portion with fries and cole slaw for less than $9. But the best part of the meal was the key lime pie..unlike any we've had elsewhere. Almost like a cheesecake. One slice was an ample portion for both of us. Parking is very limited and is tricky with all the people coming in for takeout. Will definitely try this restaurant again.

“Wonderful Meal”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Don't be fooled by the low frills building and interior. You will not find a better price for quality seafood in the area. Crab legs were amazing and don't leave without trying the Key Lime pie. Will be back, thank you Oceans!

“Too crowded, too slow, too little help”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Recommended by a local resident. This is a small 10 table mostly tak-away place. Prices good. However they lost my order. My two companions recieved their dinners and finished them by the time the one over worked waitress/cashier/hostess was able to bring me my dinner. To be fair they comped the meal after I complained. Good portions, but so so food. Better to catch your own.
