Where would... More

The food is actually very good and the attached patio bar is the best beach bar east of the Beachcomber. HOWEVER, the parking valets are, quite literally, running a scam. Each of three times I valeted this summer, I was asked if I was going to the bar, or the main restraint. Since we always start at the bar, I... More

We both decided to have Lobster as a treat. I had the lobster Ravioli which was fantastic. Hubby had the Sweet Chili Lobster and said it was... More

Friends from Dennis took us to this restaurant and we were very impressed. The wait staff was excellent and the food outstanding. We started in the bar area waiting for a table with a round of cocktails and some calamari. The drinks were great and very inventive and the calamari was very different. Not the tubes that you were used... More

My daughter and I went for dinner on a Friday Night and had a great time. Food was excellent, our server was incredible, ambiance and views were great and Shantel was the vocalist and was outstanding. We both had the $30.00 prix fix menu and amazed at the value and portion sizes. Absolutely will recommend and go back!

We were on Cape Cod for only the second time, having stayed over the summer, and now in the off-season, nearby at the Breakers and Soundings (both Bluegreen Resorts). We called the Ocean House expecting they may be closed on Sundays, but luckily they were open, so we made reservations. The place is beautiful inside, with silver and white theme... More

My wife and I enjoyed a delicious dinner here on our anniversary. Our server, Hayden, did an excellent job, providing advice about items on the menu and giving us ample time to enjoyed a relaxed evening together. There are many excellent choices of fish on the menu, including a seared Tuna and the salmon we ordered.
