“Amazing Lobster Ravioli ”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

Had an ocean view around sunset. It was very calming eating dinner right near the ocean.

The service was okay, wait times at the table were longer than they should have been and it wasn't even that busy.

The calamari and lobster ravioli was amazing. The raviolis were big, filled with lobster and topped with chunks of lobster tail meat.

“Good, Not Great”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

One of the biggest draws for Ocean House is the view, so it is tough to get a window seat. The food was pretty good but not as good as I'd expect for the crazy-high prices. The desserts were all fantastic and the service was good. If it was located in Boston or New York, it could never get away with the prices but there isn't a lot of competition in the fine(r) dining arena in this area.

“Room With A Sunset View”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

The Ocean House is a favorite dining place for year-round Cape Codders and visitors alike. It has two things going for it: an outstanding menu and the waterfront dining with a sunset. Because of this, the 6:30 seating is the most popular and busiest, so book early.

The Ocean House makes it very difficult to make a decision, because they also offer an extensive "Three for Thirty" fixed price menu that is separate from the regular menu. During our last visit our daughter and son-in-law went with the "Three for Thirty" while I had the Sea Scallops, and Ingrid had the Cape Cod Potato Chip Crisped Codfish. My Scallop dish was a 'just right' dish for me, with regards to size and taste. Ingrid's Codfish was also an excellent choice, but it was a large portion, where a good piece of it followed us home.

The "Three for Thirty" portions are very respectable, and this is The Real Deal.

There is one down side to the Ocean House, and that is the noise level. It is very loud in there, and it sure could use something to help with the acoustics.

Being right on the water, The Ocean House has a very small parking lot that requires valet parking. During our visit, at the height of the aforementioned 6:30 rush, the valets were very busy and efficient. There was basically no wait on either end of our visit. Lord knows where they park the cars in high season when the adjoining motels are full.

When in the Dennisport area, the Ocean House requires a visit, even if it is just for drinks at the small bar. But, dinner is highly recommended.

Not only was the food terrific, but the ambiance was a cut above! A little pricey, but a really special place!

For a special night out this is the restaurant that we go to on the Cape. It is a very classy restaurant and the food and the service are outstanding. Because of its popularity, reservations are a must. The only downside comment that I have is that, because of the very dim lighting, we found it hard to read the menu. We have been in other restaurants that put a small lamp on the table to assist you because of the dim lighting. That is the only criticism that I can make of this restaurant. Try it - you will not be sorry.
