Our first visit to Kokomo’s was very pleasant. We were greeted kindly by the Hostess and were given the option for different seating. We chose inside as it was a little chill & overcast. There was plenty of open seating & all with tall see through barriers between the tables. Our server was great, kind and fast! The food was amazing! Drinks amazing! Very pleased. Unfortunately, there was no lobster which was definitely the goal but we settled on some other clam options and they were all absolutely delicious. Very excited to re-visit Kokomo’s again, I’d love to make this my “special occasion” spot!

We were seated at a table inside. The service was very slow and it was more casual than we expected. We felt that our meals were a bit overpriced. Finding a parking spot was difficult. Would consider visiting again on a nicer day when we could sit outside

Food is good, but small portions for the price that you pay. Also wish there were more seafood options.

Please update menu with correct info. The menu says you have red potatoes with the seafood dinner; however, it's actually breakfast potatoes instead of boiled. When I asked the server, she said that you all didn't have red potatoes even tho it's on the menu. Also, you didn't have any tops for your containers, so I couldn't take any butter to go home with my meal for my crab legs. We also had to ask for bags upon leaving even tho we all had carry outs. Common courtesy, would've been to ask if we needed them. Great location and spot for the restaurant and the customer service was pretty decent.

Our server was delightful and very experienced even though it was her first night on the floor! Her knowledge about martinis was excellent and the wine list was good; we liked the half bottle options. The food however was pretty ordinary; fish and chips lobster dock fare at restaurant prices. Overall the ambiance was good and they are running a very tight ship with respect to COVID-19 protocols; we felt very safe. I’d come back but with adjusted expectations about the food.

Enjoyed Easter Dinner here -- can't wait to come back in the summertime. Great beach views and yummy food and drinks. Service was seriously great, such a nice and attentive staff. Small and cozy so there is some noise but that should be expected at a beachfront spot. Really glad we found this place on OpenTable, we live locally and had never heard of them before & we'll definitely be coming back regularly now! Really want to do the mimosa bucket but I think it's only for summer brunch.

Sat at the bar, bartenders were wonderful. Was disappointed that it wasn't clear how to make reservations for the huts outside. Oysters were just okay, burger came out cold (cheese wasn't even melted); however, bartender got us another one fast (grateful for that!). Recommend going there for drinks!

It took a ridiculous amount of time for a server to come over after being seated. It took a 1/2 hour for first round of drinks to come out and then it was at least another 1/2 hour before server showed up again. Then after 90 minutes they had the nerve to say we needed to leave because there is a 90 minute maximum time per seating.

It was horrible!! Food was to expensive for the price and servers could not be found. ei...$15 for calamari app and you get 13 pieces of calamari.

We ate in a pod - very nice, private & the evening was chilly so the heater ensured a pleasant atmosphere within.

My friends and I got to sit inside our own cabana so it felt very safe. The view of the ocean was great. The food was very good. We all were happy with our entrees. Dessert was awesome and homemade. I’ve recommended the restaurant to several people already. I would definitely go back again.

Everything was great for our date night! Thr cabanas are so cute. They were a little cold even with the heater but we went when we had the cold snap so it was 16 outside to begin with but didn't ruin our night! Cavitappi was good wish I had more! Ceasar salad was yummy.

We were looking for a safe way to dine out during covid, and these little heated greenhouses on the beach were perfect! Unlike other dining options that have similar style seating during covid, this restaurant did not require a minimum. I would highly recommend! We also got there at 430 to watch the sunset. Phenomenal!

Overall a beautiful location, great additions with lit seasonal cabanas for covid times, but besides that beautiful ambiance I can’t give any more credit. No social distancing inside at bar (i just went in to use restroom)- very unsafe in these times. Even your vendors had partitions up separating them from another to be safe - should do same at bar! Incredibly small portions, no flavor in the pasta, slow service, apps delivered with the main courses, and for the price- nowhere near worth it. I get being a beach location and in the summer you can serve who ever right there that will eat whatever is offered, but this style off season will not sustain you in these times.

The individual greenhouses for outside dinning come with their own heater. They were warm and cozy. Created an igloo-like ambiance.
