“A great Night ay Ozzie's!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

We tried Ozzie's last Thursday night because my friends are visiting from out of state and love crab legs. There were 7 of us. We ended up sitting in the bar area because the waitress said they would be having karaoke there. We had a wonderful waitress and a great night of music and even dancing! My husband and I had the fried fish plate and it was delicious! We had been to Ozzie's a couple of other times, and were not impressed. We thought the food was very pricey for the atmosphere, but this time we felt very differently. We will be back and bringing our friends. Good job Ozzie's.

“Great comfortable atmosphere, local music & good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Ozzy's is a great place to come with friends or a date and just soak in the local atmosphere and eat good food. They have lots to choose from that will please everybody. The music is usually on the upper outside deck unless it is cold and they even have an open mic night. On the first Sunday of each month in the upstairs dining room with the stage, they have a sassy "New Orleans" style singer and combo known as Sybil. She fills the house and is always a crowd pleaser. They can accomodate fairly large groups if you give them a heads up and you can't ask for better owners than Jimmy and Sheri! They really care about the quality of the food and making sure the customers are happy. We ate there the other night with friends again, everyone loved their gumbos and chowders and the jalepeno hush puppies are addictive. They have a good selection of beer and a full bar. My white russian was delicious. The band "The Hit Men" were great and we all ended up singing along to the tunes of Bob Dylan and such.
The prices are fair for the good quality food and they can be little pricey for full dinners but they have all kinds of appetizers and smaller items that are great and can be adapted to your budget.
So don't let that scare you away. The crabs are always fresh and of good quality and fun to smash and pick at. Give it a try!!

“Good Beer, Good Food, Good fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Well how could I forget about this place when writing a few reviews after my trip.
I used to go to Ozzie's before the "fire" and took time to go out of my way. And boy was I glad.

The whole experience was fun starting with the bartender, the other customers, and the food.

The bartender was very attentive, great service, and prompt.
The beer selection was great, with several craft beers, "cold" mugs and very reasonably priced!

I had a bowl of chowder and some wings and both were very good.
The quaint atmosphere was definitely that of a florida bar on a Wednesday afternoon.
I will visit here on every trip back to Melbourne.

“Don't be fooled by the outside appearance!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

Went on Thursday evening just before 6pm with group of 5. Missy, our waitress seated us upstairs. It was chilly & windy so couldn't sit outside. Missy was the best waitress ever. She was very attentive; she suggested that we get 12-18 of the blue crabs to share among us. We took her suggestion, plus 2 persons ordered fish dinner from the earlybird menu (available until 6pm). The crabs were wonderful; fleshy, huge and well seasoned. The fish portion was huge! Fries were crispy, hot & tasty. In this tight ecomony, it was money well spent. Our meal for 5 was less than $100.00 with no alcohol. It was was worth every penny.

“about my visit”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

I'll get to the point. Great food, crappy team service. Server getting busy as boss waits to get waited on like a customer. Server busted her butt, while her boss opened up air. If he really cared about his business, he would have cared about those customers that she couldnt get to, so she could take care of her paycheck.. restuarant has alot to offer....if boss could be more of a team player...these people making ur paycheck, and u dont care, as u sit there and watch it go down.
