The Grill on Ocean offers special meal pricing if you are seated before 6:00 P.M. It includes a salad, entree and dessert. Good value for the pricing, we enjoyed Beef short ribs and a fish entree. The corkage fee is fair at $15 a bottle...More

For lunch, I ordered Seafood Louie...egg, tomato, crab, shrimp, avocado, Russian dressing...plenty of food. Partner ordered the crab cake appetizer, not being hungry, but it was plenty of food for a small appetite. We were well satisfied.
