On a snowy night, we found the food quite good and the service excellent with our conversational and personable waitstaff. Ocean View has been around for many years; and although a rather "tired looking dining room", the food was predictable, plentiful and served hot and without any delay. The menu is quite traditional, and you can expect standard American Fare,... More

This place is owned by the same people that own the Lookout tavern in Oak Bluffs. They are working to make this a combo sports bar and fine dining place.

We were a party of nine adults (siblings) with varying tastes in food. We chose this place due to online reviews and the large menu. The service was excellent. The food portions were generous and the quality very good. Great value for the money. We could choose between the "tavern" menu (pub food) and the more formal menu. All excellent.... More

Took advantage of Tuesday $20 Prime Rib night. The 4 of us were equally pleased. Tender, flavorful and a good size portion. Service was courteous and attentive. We knew the restaurant didn't have ocean view. Just interested in a tasty prime rib dinner since we viewed the ocean most of the day! Great value and not noisy like some of... More

An older, family owned restaurant that harkens to a different era, the Ocean View offers good steaks and local water lobster at modest prices. The service was very accommodating and fast to bring food out. A nice experience.

Went there twice in a week and take-out one night. Consistently good. You can't see the ocean but dining room is very nice. Pub is fun. Attentive wait staff. Enjoyed all meals.

Went here on a whim, friends in town easy, meeting spot, whatever the reason, get here and come hungry. Portions were great and filling, drinks were delicious and it was very kid friendly. The prime rib was one of the best i have had in long time, stuffed baked lobster was perfectly prepared and the salad bar was a bonus.... More
