“Best kept secret of Ocean View”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

We've lived in Ocean View for 7 months and finally decided to try this restaurant. We are very impressed with the varied menu. The meal was superb and the service couldn't have been better--and this was on a Saturday night! Can't wait to try their breakfast and lunches.

“AHHHmazing! Can't believe how many times we came by but didn't come in! Never again!”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

To tell you how great this place was...we live a mile away and I didn't even wait till we arrived home to write it!!! We had the Cresent City Chicken- can you say amazing!? It was just delicious, creamy, hearty, nothing at all needed. The atmosphere, quaint and friendly!! You can eat inside or on their large patio. The server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The cook even prepared a gluten free alternative to a lady with a gluten allergy seated near us. We spoke with the cook and owner and raved about our food service and experience! The owner informed us they have daily lunch & dinner specials, Wednesday is their steak night which we will be going to very soon!! And Thursday, authentic Greek food!! Nothing on the menu was frozen all prepared by hand FRESH! Really can't control our excitement over finding this place!! :)

“Finally one that stuck!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

This building has seen a multitude of restaurants that give it a try, but they all have gone out of business. Along comes a former SEAL with a dream and a vision, and we have a keeper! We went here on a lark a year or so ago, and we just have to keep going back. The outside seating is fun, OV always has a show to present, plus it's nice to sit under an umbrella and have your meal and a cocktail. Inside is relatively small, but it makes it homey and cozy that way. Every visit has afforded us wonderful food, breakfast, lunch or dinner. It sure is great that Ocean View is adding so many quality places to eat; it's close to our home, but it'll be worth your drive if you don't live right around the corner.

“905 Cafe & Grill”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The 905 is a few blocks from my son's home. He often walks there for lunch since he works from home. We have eaten at the 905 twice and were pleased with the meals each time. I recently had the Pulled Pork sandwich and it was seasoned just right (not too spicy). The 905 has a casual beach feel and is very local and friendly. I would eat here again.

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed 13 July 2013 via mobile

We saw great reviews on yelp and were looking for someplace different for breakfast. We have our same ole favorites but sometimes you just need a change. Well what a nice surprise in this small restaurant. It's greek as far as dinner which we will be back to try but the breakfast has a nice selection and was clean (not greasy) and fresh. I had the Greek omelet and added green bell peppers. It just hit the spot not to mention the wonderful Bloody Mary. Great service, family owned, give it a go! You won't be sorry!
