We decided to try out Ocean View since we enjoy seafood. The restaurant was large with plenty of seating at either booths or tables. The waitress was nice & very attentive. The menu offered a large variety of dishes & several different combinations plates. There was also a page of daily combos & they offer daily specials.

Need to change the name. Food is better at other places. Service not very good either. Too expensive.

First ignore any online menus posted through restaurant links. None of them were accurate making call in orders impossible if this is a new venue for you. The restaurant is just a short drive from the Highway 85 Lexington Cotton Grove Exit. There is plenty of seating in the sit down restaurant to accommodate guests quickly, but it also has... More

We had 5 in our party and we all loved the fish we ordered. We all talked about how good the fish was and how it isn't greasy. I can't wait to go back.

Lot is usually full, so I was anticipating a good experience. It was late on a weekday night and everything was tired, from waitress to food. Very disappointed. Had not been for awhile and not in any hurry to return.

I really enjoy Ocean View because you can get combination plates at really good prices. They have great daily specials and the serving portions are very good. I always have a take-home box. The food is always cooked just right and is hot and never greasy.

I am from the coast and grew up on fresh seafood. Never really found a good place inland for seafood till now. Fantastic specials and great tasting seafood. Huge plates of food so you can order a small and still carry food home I carry the family there every Sunday after church. It's busy but never a long wait.

Thank David B
