Ate at Oceans for dinner, also because we were tired and didn't want to leave the hotel. The food was good and the service was very pleasant. Extensive drink menu, lots of "summery" concoctions!

Went with family and friends and was definitely our worst experience on the trip. Kids mac and cheese came out cold, waitress was rude, and wait staff was blatantly fighting with one another which made me feel uncomfortable. Hope to see some improvement here.

I am sorry I am not any help. I have never been there for a special occasion/holiday. I would suggest calling the Holiday Inn/Oceans and see what they offer.
