Five of us visited this resturant on June 17th 2010. Was a quiet evening and a little after dinner time. Had very good service and excellant food. I had rib eye and for $1.00 more got a lobster tail. Wow soooooo good. We all got the extra lobster tail for $1.00 extra. The Prime rib was very large also. There was food aplenty. It had rained earlier in the evening so not much going on in the water. On my past visits there were dolphins jumping during our meals. My daughter, son in law and grandaughter and great grandaughter live in New Port Richey and myself and partner came from Nashville. always go back there, the early bird prices is also a good time to go. Will be a first on our list next time to Vero.
We visit this location fairly often, the food is always good, but many time the service is slow even when they are not busy. We often find it to cold in the seeting area, which I have heard many people complain about. This of course is tipicle of many resturants in Fl. However my BIGGEST COMPLAINT AT THIS TIME is PUSHING HOLLAWEEN IN JULY. I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR OTHER STORES ARE DOING, BUT I THINK IT'S A DISGRACE TO SHOVE THIS AT THE PEOPLE SO EARLY. SOON WE WILL BE SEEING CHRISTMAS OUT ALL YEAR ROUND. IT MAY BE GOOD MARKETING TO YOU BUT I DON'T THINK MOST PEOPLE APPRECIATE THIS AT ALL. WE ARE GOING TO BUY ANYWAY, BUT NOT 3 MONTHS IN ADVANCE.
Once called " The Bucket of Blood" for their famous Bloody Mary's, The Ocean Grill has stood the test of time and for more than 50 years has maintained a great atmosphere with the best food in the county. Prime Rib to die for, fresh seafood always cooked the way you like it, generous sized drinks, and a friendly wait staff makes this my favorite restaurant in the area. I have been coming here for 50 years and will always come back if I am within 50 miles. This is a local's favorite as well. Friendly bar overlooking the ocean. You're going to love it. I promise.
