Description: Ocean Terrace. The place to begin the party or to wind down over drinks at sunset. A stunning mix of old and new, Ocean Terrace features a hip outdoor bar and dining area adjacent to the historic Nickerson Mansion, with two fire bowl lounges and breathtaking views of Cape Cod Bay. At Ocean Terrace indoors, three intimate dining rooms in the Mansion have been preserved to reflect the turn-of-the-century period of the Nickerson family. Ocean Terrace outdoors offers a stunning view of Cape Cod Bay and dining under the stars. Join us and take in the best view of the bayside of Cape Cod.

If dining outside and enjoying a view are important to you, then you may want to try Ocean Terrace on a weekday night (can't comment about wkends). Along w/ other reviews, suggest drinks & maybe a nibble to enjoy the view, but dinner is another story. Young servers & bus people seem eager to please & appear pleasant, but training and management are severely lacking. Staff would make more tips if management committed to standard training.
Average bottle red zin, 2009, was $42; wine list is not extensive, but there a few values. Our shared app was the charcuterie plate, but took nearly 25 mins to get and was not worth $19: nothing made inhouse & such a simple plating that even a child could do. Dinner arrived while still finishing app, which wouldn't have been so bad except 2 diff fish entrees were completely overcooked. For the prices, expectations are higher so we sent them back. Server was extremely apologetic, as was "the chef". Kitchen corrected problem & we enjoyed our fish. Again, presentation was nothing special, so we were not motivated to stay for desserts or after-dinner drinks. Ultimately, we can only recommend this new terrace for drinks and apps because of "the view".

This is a must see! The menu is great, food service and staff all very pleasant. The view and atmosphere of this restaurant is special. Enjoy the experience and take your time to enjoy it. The staff does not try to rush you out, which is different from most places.

The Terrace belongs to the Mansion of the Ocean Edge Resort but open to the public.We had a drink at the bar close to sunset. The atmosphere was quite good, had to wait in line to grab a seat. Can have dinner there as well as the menu is quite fancy but very pricey too.
