South Ocean Grill
Great food & drink, very friendly wait staff. Its a small place so make a reservation
Food was delicious as we had heard-small, unassuming restaurant
great service, fresh food
Great food, fun & yummy cocktails, great atmosphere!
It’s always great to eat here.
Love this place. Consistent kitchen and awesome floor staff!!
I love this place!! 4.5 overall but wasnt an option. Very intimate atmosphere. It is tiny so it gets noisy quick, but it is a diamond in the rough. I always get the special when I go. Even the bread is amazing.
Excellent service. Great food.
Started off with a Blueberry-Lemonade Margarita, which was as good as it sounds! We shared an order of the crispy calamari with cocktail sauce and spicy aioli, which was good (but we had the Thai calamari last time, and think I prefer that one more) and the volcano shrimp, which was a little oily but still tasty. They were served over a bed of coleslaw, which was very good. I had the grilled vegetable platter, which was filled with a delicious assortment! The grilled artichoke was smoky and flavorful, also served with spicy aioli, the most delicious kale salad I've ever had! A small piece of the Mexico City corn on the cob, which is a 'must order' item every time we come! (I wish I had ordered more! SO GOOD!!) a coucous salad and grilled zucchini. A really well done veggie option! My husband had the Angry Bison burger, which had to be made with regular beef, as they were out of bison. There was a jalapeno pepper on it (thus the Angry) but the seeds hadn't been scraped out, so it was a bit too hot to enjoy. He removed it, and did enjoy the rest of the burger. We've been here twice before, and really loved it. This time was just a little 'off', but we will be back again none-the-less!!
The grilled salmon sandwich was amazing! Our server was prompt and had a great disposition. Love this place!
Always have a great meal here. However the noise level was over the top. I guess there were many chatty people eating dinner that night.
We recently went to South Ocean Grill for the 2nd time in 3 weeks because the food is so good. From the flatbread appetizers to entrees like crab cakes and shrimp and scallop risotto, the food is fresh and very tasty. Can't wait to go back.
The only surprise was the corking fee that was not listed in the review where they stated "BYO Wine".
Otherwise it was a great meal, great service and will be going back again.
THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT. IT WAS VERY NOISY HARD TO HEAR AND THERE WAS ONLY TWO TABLE OCCUPIED. IT GOT WORSE WHEN IT STARTED FILLING UP. PARKING WAS LIMITED WE WERE LUCKY WE WERE EARLY AND GOT A SPOT.
Probably our 20th time at this restaurant. Consistently great food and service. The Thai Calamari is over the top delicious. Overall the best food of any restaurant in town
My husband and I were out on a date without our kids for the first time in a long time. We were looking forward to a relaxing evening. Upon stating we were going to have a drink before ordering we were informed that there was a reservation after us. The waitress was rude and slammed my husbands water down on the table. We decided to leave after our drink, told the waitress we didn’t want to feel rushed and she replied, “well we are a small place.” I’ve dined here before and it was amazing. The atmosphere and food the previous time was outstanding. Very disappointed in the service.
A small place woth outanding service and food! Can't wait to go back.
Quaint restaurant with nice atmosphere. But the best is their food. Fresh and with a lot of thought put into every of their tasty dishes. The prices are great as well considering the kind of fresh products hat go into their menu.
Food was phenomenal and service was too. The appetizers are delicious and unique. Try the Mexican corn on the cob. Had the crab cakes and they were AMAZING!!!
South Ocean Grill Food Is All Made From Scratch Including The Breads Daily! I Love The Twist That They Have On Their Foods. The Kale Slad Is A Must Have! Absolutely Everything On The Menu Is Good
Great lunch. It was an amazing experience - AS USUAL!!
Our second visit, the first being fantastic. The recent visit was also great. Despite being what appeared to be short staffed on a Sunday, everyone handled the 6pm rush great. Our orders arrived slower than the last time but service was still upbeat despite the heat and being short. The only disappointing part was the ribeye steak. Size and taste was not what we expected. Overall, this is a great place and we would most certainly return.
Wish they served frozen drinks.
Been here many times and have always had a good meal. It is one of the two best restaurants in the Patchogue area.
We had a great experience at South Ocean Grill. The food and drinks were absolutely delicious and the staff was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back.
Amazing food every time we go to South Ocean Grill... and love the atmosphere too!
Service was really slow and only two people working the tables for both inside and outside. Food was ok but not great. We had the steak and crab cakes. Very small place. Best part was the key lime pie desert. I always wanted to try this place out but no need to do it again.
Usually best place in area. $35 was a little too much for the piece of red snapper, a plate full of potatoes (boring), and steamed vegetables (which were limp). At 6pm, you were out of the pasta-seafood special that sounded great to both of us. We dine with you often and have been wow-ed on every occasion -except Sunday June 30, the day I took my wife out ofr her birthday. Still not terribly disappointing, just way below the bar you've set.
Consistently delicious food and great service from this neighborhood gem.
I always have a great meal at South Ocean Grill. One of my favorite things on the menu is the grilled artichoke appetizer. It is AMAZING! I usually get one of the specials as my entree and I've never made a poor choice. I'm not really a drinker, but their drinks are delicious. No mixes! I had a fresh raspberry margarita that was so fruity and delicious. Not too sweet. Our server, Alejandra, was so friendly. She is a ray of sunshine. The place is cozy and nicely decorated. It's small, so you need to make a reservation in advance. My only complaint is that I wish they would change up the menu seasonally. The specials help, but it would be great to see new items regularly. I highly recommend South Ocean Grill.
We have been patronizing South Ocean Grill since is has opened.
It is one of our favorite local places to eat.
The staff are very attentive and professional, always pleasant which adds to the ambiance.
The house Sangria is DeLicious!
I'm a creature of habit, I always order the Branzino with their homemade Kale Salad.
How fortunate are we to have such a Great Place so close to home.
Trip advisor had it listed as best restaurant in Patchogue and while I haven’t eaten in all places there I’ve eaten in many. I would agree that it’s the best I’ve tried in Patchogue.
Mexican corn was yummy and my salad was terrific. I’d definitely go again and I’m planning on bringing so family members that think another place in the neighborhood is great. The south ocean grill blew this other well known place away
Fantastic place, cozy and homey with an upscale twist. Great vegetarian options. Great drinks.
Food excellent, everyone there is extremely nice and attentive. Second time there, I will definitely keep coming back
We have been here for lunch and dinner many times and are never disappointed! We enjoy the creative menu and the drink specials and the servers are friendly and attentive.
"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. My husband and I were seated in sofa chairs! We are definitely going to return to try more dishes. The gorganzola flatbread was amazing and the Lobster spaghetti special was delicious. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

We were a group of four and all of us agreed that the food was delicious, our waitress was great, and the ambiance was lovely. We're looking forward returning to the South Ocean Grill in the near future. The three of us who had the branzino thoroughly enjoyed it, as did the one person who had scallops and shrimp. That's not to mention the key lime pie that the guys had. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Consistently delicious food!
We have been coming here pretty much since they opened. The food is always super fresh and amazing every time.
Great food and service. Everything was very fresh and nicely prepared. Attentive staff. Place is small so tends to get noisy. Try the key lime pie for dessert
