Ocean House Restaurant Review

: Ocean House, known for boasting one of the Cape's best views, does not need to work hard to draw customers, but the culinary team shows surprising gumption in attempting to serve cuisine as appealing as the seascape. The creative dishes don't always work, but classics like the seafood sampler, marinated flatiron steak and warm chocolate cake won't disappoint. The chef has toned down many of the more inventive dishes, opting instead for crowd-pleasing pastas like angel hair with arugula pesto and jumbo shrimp with linguine. The wine list is not up to par, but the bartenders mix up some stiff cocktails. You can't go wrong with an order of truffle fries and a Cape Codder shared with friends in the lounge. The huge desserts are also a highlight --- think generous portions of comfort dishes like strawberry rhubarb crumble. For late-night diners, the lounge offers a handful of small plates and pizzas.
