Great place if you are hungry and quality of food doesn't matter. It wasn't awful but close. Great selection of food. My husband enjoyed the grill. Wouldn't go back.

The restaurant had a separate sushi bar and a separate Hibachi Bar. The food on the bar was hot and the service was friendly. Restaurant seemed clean and well-maintained.

Oceans is about $7.95 for lunch and $9.95 for dinner, when there is more seafood. There is a discount for seniors.
