There are many places to eat seafood in Ocean Shores. Every place in this little beach town is overpriced and that we expected. This was the place we picked for our first night and we were not disappointed. From the oysters to the salmon, it...More

Not the best place in Ocean Shores but probably not the worst. We found the service to be ok. drinks (manhattan) were pretty awful but they were also really cheap. We both found the crab cake appetizer to be more fried than we like so...More

Never been there for dinner, so I wouldn't know, but if lunch is any indication, it's a great place to go. I only prefer the Shilo because of the view, but as far as menus and quality and service, this is easily as good if...More
