Food for lunch is always good and hot and the price is good as well. The atmosphere could be better and not in the best part of town.

We were in town for our daughters Basic Training graduation, and it also happened to be my Mother Birthday, since she love seafood we surprised her with dinner and a cake at Ocean View. The Staff was overly Friendly and the Seafood was great!

We went for a family dinner, there was about 12 of us. Very large place and very noisy. The food was fresh and very good, I had 2lbs of crab legs for 19.98. They were very good size, not the small stuff you usually get. It's all open on the inside, no private areas to eat, so if that doesn't... More

It filled me up and for the price it was either $4.95 or $6.95, I can't remember. Either way you come out a winner.Everything looked very clean as... More

The Holidays brought me back to Columbia, SC, and I found myself at a restaurant I used to visit when with my grandfather when I lived in Columbia a few years ago. Now, Ocean View is definitely on a side of town that's older and a bit worn, and the building doesn't really differ from the neighborhood. I imagine that... More

For a fish place the food is Ok. The place isn't the cleanest and the service could be a lot better. The fried flounder combo is very good and priced right.

We were seated/given menus as soon as we arrived. Two different servers walked through our area to assist other customers however, no one ever came to take our order. After about a 10 minute wait we left.

Very tasty and delicious food, great variety of fish and other dishes. Also very attentive and nice service. The manager is always around and is the one that supervises all to be good. I feel good there.

It's a little run down but the food was really good. We went for lunch and got a combo of 3 for about $8. There was SO much food, I believe the 3 of us could have shared one and been completely satisfied. The food was cooked perfectly and the tartar sauce was good!!! You have to give it a... More

First of all, I visited the bathroom first and the smell alone was ghastly. The trash hadn't been emptied in hours and there was water everywhere. The food was plain disgusting. We had fried perch, catfish, and shrimp. For appetizers, we had a blooming onions and she crab soup. The soup was thin with no crab to speak of in... More
