Ocean Gardens is a local place with great food, good prices, fun staff. My husband and I visited the restaurant with family who live close by. As Ohioans, this was really our 1st time having whole lobster, and it was a fun place to enjoy the lobster. For $17.99 I got one lobster, for $24.99 my husband enjoyed two. We... More

Food quality is average for evening meals.. Relatively diverse menu. Offers an outstanding breakfast menu on weekends, however. Very talented and popular breakfast Chef. Parking is more than sufficient with outside parking area. Service is friendly, but not timely.

The restaurant changed hands a few years ago and the food is tastier now! Our favorite quick meal is the chicken sandwich. They marinate the chicken which gives it an incredible flavor. We get the fried chicken but grilled is also an option. The size of the breast on the sandwich is substantial! The fries that come with it are... More

We stopped by after my wives graduation from St Josephs college. We had the fisherman's platter which was enough to share for 3... We ordered steamers and crab cakes also. All were great and the service was tops!

I was in Gorham yesterday and decided to have lunch here because I had heard it was good. My wife and I went in at lunch time and ordered from the lunch menu. I could see the restaurant specialized in seafood because they were advertising a three lobster special. My wife and I both ordered fried seafood lunches. I had... More

Went in last night because I had a $25 off coupon to use. I had been before, but not for many years. I was happy to see that it has been somewhat updated in the past few years. Still not fancy decor by any means, but the food was good! I do not eat seafood in restaurants often. I have... More

While this is nearby, we do not go often. We do go for their fresh haddock and lobster rolls. They have so many options and recently began serving a brunch on weekends. Brunch was ok, but we will have to go back once they get in their groove. Don't sit on the bar side as it gets a little rambunctious... More
