A really first rate restaurant with an unbeatable view of the ocean. Menu choices were varied with something for everyone from salads to seafood to steak. Small plates are usually enough for one; full plate will leave you with leftovers - consider splitting. Service was excellent; food was delicious and ambiance is very classy (but dress is casual). Not inexpensive... More

Met our goddaughter and her husband for a Friday night dinner. The restaurant is one of the only ones directly on the beach between Garden City, S.C. and Charleston. As always, the food was outstanding. The appetizer of beef short ribs and risotto was a perfect size and the rest had either the special haddock, Parmesan encrusted, or the steak... More

We were seated at the window overlooking the ocean. A storm came in with the clouds and rain closing us in like a curtain The soft lighting indoors made it feel cozy and warm. Our meal started with a deliciously crisp Caesar salad served on chilled plates with chilled forks. My husband had lamb chops, and he practically licked the... More

We just had the most amazing meal at this restaurant! Golden seared red snapper off the specials menu for my husband and the Ring of Fire on the regular menu for me. The atmosphere is wonderful with a 180 view of the ocean while you dine. Food quality and flavor, presentation and service all excelled. Jimmy T, our waiter was... More

The ocean view from the elevated dining room was one of the best in the area.There were four in our party and everyone was delighted with our experience at Ocean One. All four of our meals were terrific. Even though the costs were somewhat high - we knew this was a 1st class venue when we made a reservation so... More

The Litchfield Inn is a 50 year old complex, and the restaurant is just as old. The service was slow, and the menu was limited. It seemed as if the business was being run on a shoestring. Why you ask? How many times have to been to a "fine dining" establishment and had wait staff swipe unused stemware off your... More

We had a table overlooking the ocean and the view was great. For dinner, we had the Single Tail Lobster as well as Duck Breast. Dinners came with Caesar Salad and warm bread. Both were very good and prepared perfectly. We split the Grand Marnier Creme Brulee for desert The cocktails were a bit over the top, price wise but... More

Had dinner there with some close friends. A high end restaurant where service and food proved it. Seafood dishes were wonderful. Everything was cooked perfect. Oceanfront dining at its best. Beautiful views of the ocean which always makes the meal better. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful meal. Great ambiance with an ocean view. The evening we were there we were treated to fireworks being done on the beach by random people. The food was very good. Highly recommend any of the seafood entres.

The quality of service and food never fails to disappoint! Great small plate options - the short rib and risotto is exceptional! Wine list is extensive and great options. You shouldn't miss the Wednesday special for half price for all wine bottles!!!
