After dining at several of Cameron Mitchell's restaurants around the city, I was prepared for great atmosphere, excellent tasting food, sizeable portions and reasonable prices at the Ocean Club. I did find that the food was prepared very well with many wonderful flavors, however, my overall experience left me unsatisfied. My wife and I are not frequent diners at such up-scale restaurants, and when we do decide to splurge on a meal, we like to feel our money was well spent. The $60 we spent on two very small crab cakes and four scallops did not generate such a feeling. Furthermore, my "crab" salad only included one very tiny piece of crab (maybe 3/4" square). I realize gourmet food is synonymous with small portions, but these portions were laughable in comparison to those plated at Cameron's other establishments. Second, my glass of merlot, again small, was not properly poured. I realize that sediment does, at times, form in a stored bottle of wine, but the bartender should be trained well enough to know how to keep that sediment in the bottle rather than just dumping it all into a customer's glass. Last, when booking my reservation, I was told that the restaurant’s dress code was business casual or formal. However, the diners we encountered wore denim summer wear with adolescent children in tow. Hardly the upscale atmosphere my wife and I expected while celebrating a special occasion. I do wish to thank our server for the free dessert in honor of my wife's birthday. However, that may be the only pleasant memory we will have of the Ocean Club. In total, we spent around $100 for dinner, and next time we visit Easton, I think we'll give P.F. Chang's the opportunity to satisfy our appetites. Sorry.

The fish is mainly served a la carte with expensive large side dishes the way a steak house does. Leaves me with the feeling that I'm getting ripped off...expensive wine list too. Must be the highest mark up in Columbus. Martinis are bubbling with dry ice - I just want a drink not a witches brew please.
Beautiful decor and patio - very noisy with the piano player and all the hard surfaces though, couldn't hear my guest and we were at a small table.

OK, not great, until the bill comes. Way too expensive for average to just above average food.

Ocean Club is a wonderful place to have dinner. My favorite dish would be the crab bisque and the scallops. Always ask about the chef specials. My husband who does not like seafood....loves the steak and chicken options. It is in a wonderful location in Easton because you have many things to do before and after dinner. We like to sit at the bar but the view from the tables is excellent. This is one of the best places to eat in Columbus.
