We had heard Ocean's was good and we were not disappointed. The dining room overlooks the ocean and the vista is beautiful whether you choose dining inside or out. I had a very creative Tropical Salad and it was delicious (I am gluten free by necessity). My husband had clam chowder, a crab cake sandwich and Million Dollar Cake and... More

ocean view restaurant, nice omelets, good waffles, scallops in a pasta dish were really good, but pasta needed a little more seasoning.

We dined at the restaurant with a large group. Our meals consisted of a crisp green salad, potatoes and a filet mignon. The meal was outstanding. You could cut the filet with a butter knife. It was served hot and medium temperature as ordered. It was among the best steaks I have had. The desert of chocolate mousse atop a... More

My sorority met at the Ocens Restaurant for a Christmas dinner/party. I made reservations through Laura Clark, who was very easy to work with as we planned a select menu. We had a great table, set up on the stage area, and the holiday decorations were beautiful! Darlene was our server and no one could have been more attentive or... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for a staycation since we wanted to be at the beach for the weekend without having to deal with traffic and parking. We got to the hotel on Saturday during lunch time and decided to eat at Oceans. We wanted to sit outside since it was the perfect temperature outside. I ordered the chicken... More

Outdoor dining with a great view of the ocean and pool. We like it b/c you get great service, nice view, shade from the sun, convenient to the pool, and when you are finished eating just walk down the steps back to your chair, relax and enjoy the pool/beach. Yes it is a bit pricey but you are paying for... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn and this restaurant was conveniently located on site. We had the breakfast buffet here 3 times. It was all great, including the omelette station. I wish they would have French toast and biscuits and gravy every day, though. They were delicious! Those seem to be rotating items. Also, we had dinner here one night.... More

Wanted a large seafood selection and Oceans sufficed. Not a romantic restaurant at all. Music in bar area reverberated throughout. Friendly staff. Menu sounded good but actual food was fair. Food came out not piping hot. Baked potato was hard inside. Dessert came out at nuclear temperature. The staff was so friendly that it is hard to complain, but not... More
