Rating: They just keep getting better!
Reading the reviews here makes me wonder if some people reviewed the wrong place. Maybe in 2011 it was downhill, but not now! I go there about once a month and I have had some wonderful meals. I usually get what is a special since that will be the freshest available and the Tuna and Swordfish have been fantastic. Some tables have an ocean view so make a reservation for one of them. This is not cheaps eats, it's fine dining but causal. They have a new head chef so if you have not been there lately you should go again.
Rating: Upscale and really great food
Reading the reviews below will really give the wrong idea of this place. I think it has changed a lot in the past few years so ignore the old dated reviews from 2010 and past. The owner owns 1587 in Manteo and this place. There was a previous owner that is no longer involved and I think that is when this place started to change. My wife loves this place so I go here often. The food is always good and the fish is always super fresh and well cooked. I am not a martini drinker so I can't comment on them, but many exclaim how wonderful they are there. They take reservations which is really important to me in the summer. They have some nice window seats where you can see the ocean too. Pricey, not cheap so be aware but it can really make a nice impression with their quality.

Food poison....first time ever & its aweful!
Rating: Wondeful Spot!!!
I go to the place every time I come to the beach. Amazing place! I never usually eat an entree, but apetizers, desserts and drinks! Try creme brulee, it is the best I have ever tasted! And do not miss Friday night entertainment in season! You will love it!
Rating: What a night out!
We called to make reservations for 7:45 or so and were told that they could not accommodate our group until 8:30 or later. The person on the phone told us about music outside and we decided to arrive at our leisure and enjoy a drink to wait for our table. Glad we did! It was so relaxing and the musician was good an entertaining! We were told it may take a little longer for our table, so we ordered some small plates outside and the whole experience was great! Once inside, we ordered some entrees off the menu and specials, all of which were creative and good. Our waiter was efficient and pleasant, and the atmosphere was great! We saw it go from very crowded (inside and out) to almost empty, with a small bar crowd and the place just felt right the whole time. This may be our new OBX go-to dining spot!
Rating: down hill
loyal repeat customers since 2006 who have been sadly disappointed in the food offered at ocean blvd for two consecutive years. we were so shocked at the food last year, we gave it another try. BAD idea. the food was mediocre at best with under cooked rice and bland butter beans in every one of the 6 entrees ordered. service was sub par and entrees were not described in menu. the offer of free dessert was turned down. it really wasn't worth trying to eat anything else there.

I will be going here to celebrate every special event! Expensive, but definitely worth it!!
Rating: Top Notch!
If you want fine dinning at it's best, this is where you want to eat. I have to refrain from over eating and drinking martinis. Wish they had better eating facilities up stairs so one could enjoy the view of the ocean. Keep up the good menu and service ... "I'll be back"!

Ocean Boulevard does the upscale casual thing perfectly. The atmosphere is sparse and modern - it used to be a hardware store - but the food is excellent. Chef Donny and his wife own the place, so you know it is a labor of love. My latest obsession is the OB Mac and Cheese. We're talking real sauce bechamel with cheese and pasta, plus bacon. Oh god. And everything is good, they also have all sorts of martinis, for those who like that sort of thing. Live music on the patio evenings in season, and late night inside. Highly recommended!
Rating: Delicious steak, great hospitality
These people serve excellent food with a smile. Definitely will return.

Upscale cuisine and a classy martini bar. Service was attentive and friendly. Will be back again.
Rating: Not what it used to be.....
We used to eat here often in previous years but now it does not seem to be what it used to be.......They do not want to accomodate parties of 2, I guess they feel they will not spend enough......
We requested a booth and they would not give it to us, they said they were holding them for parties of 4.....The whole time we were there, no one was seated at these tables!! No apology, just the manager saying "if you don't like it, too bad!" The food was okay, except it didn't include everything it was supposed to....
