Enjoyed the two for one early bird dinner with my parents with a 5:45 reservation on Wednesday which is “locals night”. For “odd” numbers of guests the entree is half off plus $2 which is so reasonable. Our server Terry was terrific; attentive but not intrusive. We were not rushed and ordered a second bottle of wine to enjoy the band which started promptly at 8. The food was great, the sauce on the grouper almandine was amazing, my parents enjoyed their veal. We all brought home leftovers.

This is my second visit and it is just as amazing as the first time! Last time I came with my friends on a girls trip. This time I’m down here with my husband and had to take him! We did the early bird special (highly recommend making reservations for this). We each got the grouper almandine, lemon drop martinis and Caesar salads. We split the chocolate cake for dessert and I also got a chocolate martini! When we went to leave it was pouring rain, so we went back and sat at the bar and drank Irish coffees!!! Everything is so good from the wait staff, to the quality of food to the atmosphere. This is now a place I will go every time I’m in the area!

You simply cannot beat the quality of the Ocean Club amongst dining establishment on 30A and the panhandle beaches. The grouper is simply divine, prepared ‘Ocean Club’ or ‘Almondine’. The filet is devine, as are the asparagus and other chef prepared vegetable accompaniments. Great deserts, cocktails, service, and entertainment, as well. Our favorite part of the evening is always a visit with the resident turtles for feeding- they add to the Florida coastal ambiance! Treat yourself to the Ocean Club- you will be glad you did.

We had previously eaten at Ocean Club and had a very good experience. The food was excellent and the quiet atmosphere made it easy for conversation (there were only a few other tables occupied which made it so quiet). We decided to go for New Year's Eve because of that experience. Our reservation was at 6:00 which was the middle seating. When someone called to confirm the reservation I was told that we would have the table until 8:30 since there was another seating.This was not a problem since 2 1/2 hours is plenty of time for a meal. We arrived at 6 and were immediately seated (there was 4 of us). The fixed price menu was $79.95 each and had 3 courses, all of which were regular menu items. Our server was prompt in coming to our table for drink/wine orders. We ordered 2 bottles of wine and expected to enjoy a glass a wine before ordering our meal. To shorten this story, by 6:50 we had been served our first and second courses and our server was asking what we wanted for dessert! We had been told that the table was our for 2 1/2 hours and yet we were being rushed to finish our meal in less that an hour! We delayed ordering dessert so that we could enjoy our wine but we were still out of the restaurant by 7:30 Our total bill was just under $600 for 4 people and yet we were being rushed to leave. Needless to say we won't be going back to Ocean Club. I'm giving it 2 stars only because the food was very good.

First clue should have been that same day reservations were available. While the 'early dining' menu was placed at our table, the service was so slow that by the time we ordered, we were outside the window, which was a nice surprise when the check came. One person in our group ordered a beer, which took almost thirty minutes to arrive, despite asking multiple staff members. Don't bother ordering the oysters, as apparently they are ordered in such low quantities that they are rarely available, even at 6p. We had to ask for butter and plates, as the bread basket was just dropped at our table. Food was decent, which was the only reason why our dinner was not a complete wash. For the price (and considering the other great restaurants in the area), I would not hesitate to tell anyone to find somewhere else to dine. COVID: While we appreciated the staff wearing masks, don't come here expecting any social distancing when dining inside (outside was great). Also, while things are starting to loosen-up, not sure having people dancing in the middle of the restaurant is the best idea.

We have dined here for years. We visited in August and were amazed at the changes. Food portions on the 2-1 have been dramatically reduced. The prices have increased 25%, the wait staff has been replaced with a very inexperienced group. I asked for extra sauce and was told the kitchen staff would need to ok the extra sauce. Overall, the service was poor at best. We were so displeased and we will not return and to note we have dined here for 15 years. So sad!

Recommended to us by a friend, this is a nicer place... had some good menu choices in fish and steaks, and everything is prepared on site by a chef. We had two different grouper dishes that were wonderful, with rice and green beans. Picked the fried asparagus appetizer with crab meat, and it was fabulous. Split a wedge salad and it was also wonderful. Steaks at the table next to us looked great, too. Our waiter, Michael, was impeccable, and the manager stopped by to meet us and check on things too. This place has a great feel, and there's usually live music later in the evening with dancing, too. We went at 5 pm and enjoyed the early bird special, which is BOGO on a limited selection of entrees. This is one of those restaurants you'll return to every time you're in town.

Beautiful place for a fancy dinner but the server we had was very old. She kept touching all of our silverware, glasses and plates and couldn’t remember what we ordered. Not a single server was wearing a mask in the middle of the Coronavirus spike. They did social distancing for the table seating but then the wait staff was right beside you or in front of you without a mask. It made me want to hurry to get out.

We had dinner with out-of-town friends and it was great! This is the second time for us locals. The ambiance is refined. The wine selection is extensive and you can find what you prefer. Three of us had seafood and one had beef, and all were very pleased with the quality and presentation. The service was attentive, prompt, and personable. The price is not cheap but is reasonably priced for the overall experience. We recommend that you try it!

Some insight, we had a large group of 14 so we made a 7pm dinner reservation a week earlier because it was going to be Memorial Day weekend and our group size. The restaurant called me at 6:20 pm just to make sure that we would be there for our 7pm reservation and I said yes. We arrived about 5 minutes early and then hostess said that we were 30 minutes early and our reservation was actually at 7:30pm. We told her that she actually had called us half hour ago and our reservation was at 7PM. She said well, your party can go to the bar and have some drinks until they were ready. I mean really, are you kidding me. This was ridiculous and we would have left but with a group of 14 and a holiday, we stayed. Once we finally sat down the waiter took over the rudeness from the hostess. He was annoyed if we asked for anything. After being there for 3 hours, our food finally got to the table. Mind you that these were $35 -$50 entrees at a white napkin restaurant. All of the food was warm, at best. All of the steak entrees were terrible and when we mentioned this to our waiter, he said that was the way this restaurant prepared them -Charbroiled. By this time, we were not sending food back as we were just ready for a check. The seafood entrees we decent but not anything to rave about. It was very embarrassing to me as I planned this as our nice dinner out for our trip. The table next to us (family of 6 seemed to be having the same experience). For the money and 3 and half hours, I would not recommend this establishment.

We had our son and his new bride’s “After Rehearsal Dinner” at the Ocean Club in early December. From my first conversation with Ms. Vicki to the last farewell of the evening, the experience was superb! The ambiance was warm and elegant, the staff was so professional and hospitable, and the food rivaled or surpassed the best I’ve ever enjoyed. We, as well as our guests, were made to feel welcome and each delectable course of our meal was served in perfect cadence for the evening. Our highest compliments to the chef! Thank you Patrick, Vicki, and the great team at OC for such a memorable evening during our “wedding weekend!” This was our first dining experience at OC, but will definitely not be our last! Happy New Year to all of our new friends at Ocean Club! Julie Clark

This restaurant is a staple & use to be a local favorite.We made reservations a week in advance for a birthday dinner needless to say we wish we would’ve cancelled. We arrive a few minutes early with others & the hostess is flustered & extremely rude stating the restaurant doesn’t open for six minutes & tells us we must wait.Seriously she said that.We we’re like ok,that’s fine no problem.Unfortunately it was my friend’s surprise birthday dinner,she’d never been there & it was quite embarrassing.The server & food were ok.I was sure this was the restaurant to dazzle my friend with great service,ambiance, amazing food & the whole shabang….I was definitely wrong about this. They have lost their touch.

Had dinner at the ocean club tonight with my wife. Went there are between 5 and 6 o'clock to take advantage of their troop for one dinner special most difficult thing about the menu was trying to select which 1 you want it for many good choices we both ended up trying grouper. Both meals came out quickly and we're sure very hot. The taste and portions were excellent. Anxious to go back and try some of the other selections.

We have patronized this restaurant for a number of years. You can't beat it's early bird dinner special. Food and service is of high quality . Although the setting is slightly formal, you will enjoy a relaxing dinner in attractive surroundings .

Somethings different. We used to live this place. Now food is mediocre. Soggy pasta. Green beans were perhaps from a can. Server comes over with an “ extra” shrimp app and says she ordered too many, would we like it? Sure we say. Then it shows up our bill. Won’t go back for a long time.
