A modest renovation and enlargement did wonders. A few more tables and you can now wait in a small foyer. Still has the small restaurant charm. Well done! A well curated wine list supports the excellent food choices. Both per glass and per bottle prices are restrained in their mark ups considering the quality,most bottles are under $ 50 with a few in the $ 30 range. Sadly the corkage has gone up to $ 15 but they will happily open your own treasure. We actually appreciate the opportunity to just buy one glass rather than finishing a whole bottle (yes, I know you can re-cork but that seems to work rarely). And still the best raw oysters!!!

Located in a somewhat industrial-looking stretch next to Route 9 sits what looks like a double-wide trailer although the restaurant claims it to be a former diner. The cramped but tastefully appointed interior means you'll be part of your neighbor's conversation like it or not. However, if your primary concern revolves around what's on the plate you are in for a literal treat. The creative seafood menus doesn't disappoint. Oysters came with a delightfully briny sauce. Crab bisque was savory and rich. Expertly prepared salmon let you know how it should be done. This virtuosity doesn't come cheap, however, even without a bar bill, the check approached $300 for 4 people. Only hard core foodies would see that as value for money. In short, at these prices think about how much you actually like seafood.

Over rated in our view. Chef is creative, but thin portions at high prices and not much flavor. Also, it is BYOB, which is fine if you know in advance.

Good seafood according to my wife.

But we both agree. Their clam chowder is the worst we have ever had, including store bought. Honestly they should be ashamed of their soup and a new englander would be appauled. Watery, very few clams, flavorless.

I personally wouldnt go back. Id take the 45 minute ride to city island

Not inexpensive, but the BYOB policy keeps the overall cost within reason, and the quality of the food and service is excellent. Small, seating probably fewer than 25 people total, Ocean House typically has a very good selection of fresh oysters and is known (surprise, surprise) for its seafood. Reservations aren't taken over the phone -- you stop by, leave your name and number, and get called when they are ready to take you. (You do get an idea of when that is likely to be.)
