For Easter four of us went to the Ocean Club and enjoyed their special Easter Brunch. Two had Eggs Benedict, One had Prime Rib and one had an Omlette.

My wife and I arrived right at 5:00 as the restaurant opened for the "early bird special". We were promptly seated by the aquarium and waited on by our waitress who served us on the last visit. She is excellent and even remembered which salad we liked best. I always lean toward the "Grouper Almandine" which never fails to be... More

We're locals and when it's the height of tourist season we like to go to the Ocean Club because visitors just don't know that it exists. We frequent the Early Bird dinners (5-6 pm) where it's 2 for 1 dinners at reasonable prices. We often choose the Grouper. Service is friendly and prompt.

We have been patrons of Ocean Club Restaurant for 14 years and we always have a good dining experience there. The restaurant is a bit dated, but the service and food is great. Early bird dining helps with the prices.

Had dinner with friends while in area. Came on a Wednesday night, which is Locals Night, with specials from 5-6 and live music. The resort where we are staying recommended it. We had reservations, were seated immediately. Our server, Allan, was personable and attentive. We each had a glass of wine, and ordered entrees, which arrived quickly. My friend enjoyed... More

We had a wonderful meal at Ocean Club. The fish was light and flaky. Cooked to perfection. The fried shrimp was some of the best I've ever had. It was so lightly battered and fried to perfection. However, the martinis and vodka gimlets were absolutely mixed to perfection. We will definitely be back next visit.

-Although we have "Wintered" close by for several years we've only dinned at the Ocean Club only once before - many years ago in fact. That experience was acceptable but not exceptional. -So when our visiting guests asked about going somewhere close by - we mentioned the Ocean Club and several other restaurants nearby. - We opted for Yes -...

The chef at Ocean Club is always ready to throw together a vegan meal to please the palette and fortify the consumer in all the right nutrients. I visit and present a card which explains that I eat nothing that has eyes nor their byproducts, potatoes excluded, and the chef seems happy to meet the challenge. I'm never disappointed.

Ocean Club is one of the premier, fine dining restaurants with a variety of appetizers & entrees to please everyone. We have a Sushi bar & live entertainment Wednesdays - Saturday. Wednesday nights caters to our Locals offering them an incredible discount while enjoying one of our favorite house bands - Emerald Gold. Our food and service is top notch and we offer private rooms and outside deck for special events upon booking. We do take walk-ins but prefer that you call ahead for reservation.
