Each of us ordered something different and we happily tasted each others' food. Every dish was terrific! Our waitress was professional, knowledgeable, and personable. And...the martinis were great, too. We... More

Visited OB early in the evening so missed the live music. I bet it was great but we like to be home early on "amateur nights." We took advantage of the specials and it was a great decision. My husband enjoyed a pre-dinner Guinness to honor the day. I chose a Sazerac which was a unique and delicious take on... More

If you want to include a relaxed evening out at a restaurant with delicious cuisine while in OBX then Ocean Boulevard is the place to dine. They have many unique daily specials to tempt a distinguished palate. I highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic couples night out.
