From the beginning, it was disaster! I had called to reserve room for meeting - no problem. Room was not ready when we arrived. Then after waiting around for about 10 minutes, a young lady came and asked who we were with. I thought she was someone off the street. She looked like she just jumped out of bed and... More

The waitress looked like she had come off a rough night on the street. We had to go her to take our order. Everyone's food was horrible. The baked potato was reheated from lunch, the salad had big pieces of red onion skin in it, all the food was tepid. Even the child did not like his chicken fingers. What... More

For us just another typical seafood place. In my opinion I had the perch and I believe they were frozen, not fresh. Hush puppies in a different format, interesting but a little on the dry side and could use some seasoning to them, one way or another. Fries were good. The atmosphere was nice, had to large murels that were... More

Food for lunch is always good and hot and the price is good as well. The atmosphere could be better and not in the best part of town.

We were in town for our daughters Basic Training graduation, and it also happened to be my Mother Birthday, since she love seafood we surprised her with dinner and a cake at Ocean View. The Staff was overly Friendly and the Seafood was great!

We went for a family dinner, there was about 12 of us. Very large place and very noisy. The food was fresh and very good, I had 2lbs of crab legs for 19.98. They were very good size, not the small stuff you usually get. It's all open on the inside, no private areas to eat, so if that doesn't... More

It filled me up and for the price it was either $4.95 or $6.95, I can't remember. Either way you come out a winner.Everything looked very clean as... More

The Holidays brought me back to Columbia, SC, and I found myself at a restaurant I used to visit when with my grandfather when I lived in Columbia a few years ago. Now, Ocean View is definitely on a side of town that's older and a bit worn, and the building doesn't really differ from the neighborhood. I imagine that... More

For a fish place the food is Ok. The place isn't the cleanest and the service could be a lot better. The fried flounder combo is very good and priced right.
