Not much ocean here, but nice ambience. Not super attentive staff. My burger medium rare was closer to bleu. But good.

We were shopping at Mongoose Junction and read the menu for the Ocean Grill. Went back for dinner and had a very pleasant experience. My wife is GF and had a delicious rib eye steak and a GF stuffed potato. I had crab stuffed shrimp, which I thought were not all that large. Entrees range from $32 to $38 which... More

This place never disappoints us. Fish dishes are always interesting and very fresh. Nice romantic setting. No ocean views but very nice ambience. Service was outstanding. Do not miss the coconut creme tart!! Dined here three times in a two week visit.

Last night was the second time my husband and I have eaten at the ocean grill. The atmosphere was very nice with a vocalist crooning some soft rock favorites. The wait service was good also. However, the meal (both times) was less than memorable. The scallops last night were delicious and well prepared, but lacked a sauce or some sort... More

The Ocean Grill in Mongoose Junction is excellent for a casual lunch or dinner. Dining is outdoors with a retractable cover for the occasional rainy days. The food is excellent. I especially liked the vegetable spring roll and the Caesar salad with shredded chicken. My friends loved the muscles. The desserts are made on the premises and are excellent. I... More

I wish I could remember our servers name because she was absolutely awesome. There are so many fabulous choices on the menu and they're all absolutely amazing. We had the mussels, the Ahi Tuna and the sage Fried Chicken along with the Ketel One blue cheese martinis... off the chart a must if you're in town
