THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Oceangrill Restaurant Review

: After a name change from Grillfish to Oceangrill, this restaurant carries on with much the same seaside spirit, offering fresh seafood cooked almost any way you’d like and all dishes derived from a fairly basic and simple menu. We rated with good marks the blackened tuna kabobs served on a Caesar salad, but found the crab cakes mealy and tasteless. While the cooking lacks ingenuity and spirit, at least the d├ęcor will amuse: Lurid murals of satyr-like creatures and statuary look like they emerged from a Roman bacchanal, and the ornate chandeliers add an extra touch of the bizarre. All this in suburbia! Maybe the restaurant’s vaunted happy hour offers more diversion.
