Fell into this restaurant in mid-September after the summer crowd had left. Was surprised that: 1) This restaurant accepts cash only (no credit cards); 2) This restaurant offers Half-Price Wednesdays! Thank goodness for half-price, we had enough cash on us -- otherwise, we might have...More

You can sit outdoors, it’s BYOB and Wednesday’s are half price. Service was excellent. It can get noisy inside. Halibut with Lobster risotto is excellent. Seafood pasta platter is very good. Desserts are excellent. Carrot cake is delicious. A great place to eat in Ocean...More

I enjoyed chicken salad salad (refreshing on a hot summer's day) and my husband had chicken salad sandwich (not on menu). Friendly service.

The lobster had absolutely no flavor, not even salt. The tomato was tasteless; this is September in NJ! The homemade potato chips were tough and soggy. The only good thing in the meal was the lobster bisque. They could use some competition in OG.

Sea Grass seems to be the favorite "walk-to" place on Main Ave in OC. We had a very nice meal. The fried calamari was crispy and light, and the soy sauce pairs wonderfully. The spinach and pancetta salad was a nice mix of flavors, but...More

You should call the restaurant, but I did hear that it started the half price entrees on Sept. 12th. If it did start, remember it is cash only.
