Good food, good service and good live music. What's not to like?

After trying Ocean Blues twice, the food is mediocre and the music so loud it’s impossible to have a table conversation. Sorry but we will not be going back again.

Brie appetizer was really awful. Fish was cooked well. We arrived at 7PM and the place was virtually empty. Is this a music joint OR a restaurant?

Excellent food and service. We arrived at 5PM so were not charged any cover charge when we had dinner only. Filet steak was cooked perfectly, which is difficult when ordered rare, lobster bisque appetizer was delicious with big chunks of lobster meat. I will definitely return to this restaurant. Our server was great and thoroughly explained the Groupon...with no surprises.

Nice atmosphere. Went on a Sunday around 4:30p so didn't stay for music that started at 7p. We had the fried grouper that came with fries and tarter sauce..was very good, but needed a little more seasoning. Had the Rock Lobsta-Asiago Dip appetizer..it was delish. Service was good. We drove from Bradenton because we had a groupon to use. I probably would drive the 20+ miles just to eat there, but would definitely choose it as a place to dine if I were in the neighborhood, and certainly as a place to hang with friends for drinks.

The food at Ocean Blues was unimaginative, but fine. I enjoyed the sweet potato tater tots. My husband ordered the grilled chicken ($14) and although it was tasty, it was just a chicken breast on a small plate (salad, his side dish, was served separately) which leaves an impression that you've paid too much. I ordered Tomato Basil soup and grilled cheese, but I couldn't finish the soup because it was SO spicy! There wasn't any indication it was going to be that spicy before ordering. Our biggest gripe isn't something the restaurant can do anything about, but the other (older) patrons around us were so loud we felt like we were part of their conversation when we did not wish to be.

From Our Editors

Ocean Blues combines the taste of seafood and steak with the haunting wails of live blues music. Diners sup on crispy margherita pizzas or St. Louis-style ribs and share plates of appetizers such as fish tacos, toasted ravioli, or corned-beef spring rolls. They can pair sweet-potato tots with a blackened bacon-and-blue-cheese burger or go with an entree of shrimp scampi or pecan-encrusted salmon. While listening to musicians belt out classic blues songs, guests sip craft beers, wines made by renowned musicians, and inventive blues-themed cocktails named after famous guitarists, legendary songs, or favorite chord progressions.
