Awards & Accolades Image

Named One Of The “Top 100 Scenic Restaurants In America” By OpenTable Reviewers!

“Generous windows allow guests to appreciate the food, the view, and the fantasy within the dining room, which is illuminated at night by the soft glow of votive candles.”

–Down East Magazine

“The dining room at Ocean is a gracious two-tiered space with an intimate bar area in front.  No matter where you sit, the ocean vistas are spectacular – it’s picture-postcard Maine.”
–Portland Press Herald

Voted “Best Ocean View”.
–Yankee Magazine

“Ocean is one of those rare treats where the alchemy of service, food, and good company culminate into a special dining experience. Ocean gets top marks for its views of Walker’s Point– the compound of President George H. Bush and his family on the Atlantic Ocean– while you linger over duck magret, the beef duo (of mignon and short ribs bourguignon), or of course, lobster.
