We had a large party and had to take an 8:30 reservation. For an outdoor restaurant with a great view, we thought that would not be a problem. But when add a slow kitchen and a missing waiter to a late dinner, we saw more...of the cleaning crew than the sunset. Food was good, not great. We were here for the experience- not the food. But when the staff started sweeping before we were served, and all the food - starters and entrees, came at the same time. Well, not what I expected. Spoke to the manager who confirmed he couldn’t find our waiter... strange. If you go, I’d recommend early!More

My wife and I had reservations which I recommend. Service was good and the food was very good. We started with calamari, great, very crispy. Next was Blue Crab and corn chowder with plenty of crab. For entre I had the blackened redfish recommended by...our server, very good. My wife had the fresh fish Plancha and really enjoyed it.More

It’s average. The service wasn’t great & the food was no more than average. We had reservations so the wait wasn’t long but it was very busy. It seemed like one waiter had the entire patio which made service extremely slow.More

It definitely is one of the best places to have lunch or dinner and enjoy being near the water. Most of us had different tacos and we all enjoyed them. We will definitely return to enjoy dining with good food and excellent view.More

Had a fantastic dinner at Ocean Lounge to celebrate a couple of 65th birthdays. Emily and her assistant, whose name l failed to get, gave exceptional service to our party of 7. As a restaurant person, I hesitated but still requested the swordfish on a...set-up for catfish and the chef honored the request. My meal was amazing. We also ordered a couple of apps, as well as grits for the table. Everything was delicious! The restaurant has an ample bourbon list which I was excited to find. As a person who lives at the beach, I find that restaurants all too often rely on their oceanfront view to compensate for less than acceptable food and service. Ocean Lounge delivered on ALL accounts. The food, beverages, view and service were on point. As a person who has spent my life in restaurants, I would highly recommend you give these folks a chance. It was fantastic!More

Went with 4 people to the Ocean Lounge on Saturday night in late February. Made a reservation at 5:00pm outside. Arrived and the hostess Issabel saw our reservation, went out to the patio, then came back and said "yeah, I don't seem to have a...table now, we just got slammed from our OysterFest, that happens on saturday nights". I asked what she thought we should do, did she think people were finishing up or what? She was kind of wishy washy and didn't know. She then said she could seat us at couches and fire pit (which didn't work) and move us when a table opened since we were there to eat dinner. We agreed. Sat at the couches and had Margy come right over and served us. We ended up getting drinks and appetizers, waiting over an hour to see if a table opened. Margy and Emily took great care of us, Issabel never checked back, even though we saw tables open up. After an hour+ all the tables emptied and we were still at the couch...no word from Issabel. We mentioned to Emily and she said of course we could move, but at that point we were done, paid and left. Drinks and food were great, but what did a reservation mean here, and no follow up from the hostess!More

Beautiful lounge. We would have enjoyed sitting outside but it was too cold. We had appetizers and drinks. Great atmosphere. Would love to come back when we could sit outside. We made reservations.

Reservation for outside wasn’t honored, table we did get was dirty, too long to get the attention of a server, the food was over salted and mediocre and the check $$$$ - better choices out there!

Thank you for your question. Ocean Lounge does not offer Lobster Night, however we do have a cold water lobster that can be added to any of the plancha options, as well as a lobster roll. We hope to see you soon!
