    Default Oceanside Beach Bar & Grill

    We've heard good things about Oceanside and decided to give it a go. We arrived at 4pm to beat out the evening crowds that we heard of.

    Seating was prompt with an ocean view. The decor was Italian beachy, clean, with a slightly modern digital twist near the bar.

    Our server was super fast and pleasant. She recited her drink and dinner specials and promptly took our drink orders.

    We ordered the Eggplant Parm and Shrimp & Grits. Dinners come with salad and hot garlic bread.

    We chose Greek salads which were crisp, fresh, and cold. It's refreshing to have a restaurant serve salad in cold plates. The salad was covered with feta cheese and contained lots of delicious meats. The house vinaigrette dressing was light and refreshing.

    Our entrees arrived soon after our salads were finished, both piping hot and inviting.

    My partner order the Eggplant Parm which she ordered with spaghetti pasta and meat sauce. The egglant was fried perfectly and very tender. There was a slight crunch on the crust as it should be. The pasta was complimented by the very meaty and slightly sweet sauce. Tons of meat with just the right amount of sauce. The cheese topping was wonderful and she didn't have to add any extra. Good sized portion with enough left over for lunch tomorrow.

    I had the Shrimp & Grits. It was recommended to me by other patrons, but I was still hesitant to try it. Being a True Southerner, I am always wary of "the best blah-blah-blah" you ever ate. When my plate arrived I was in awe of the portion size and the wonderful aroma. The grits were perfectly done not over cooked. The sauce was creamy with bits of roasted garlic and onion. No additional seasonings needed. The shrimp were tender and fresh. Luckily I saved some garlic bread as I cleaned my plate completely. Something I hardly ever do.

    Service was excellent. All of the wait staff takes care of you, not just your initial server. Little did we know that one of the owners came by to check on us as well.

    Excellent food with a broad menu. I can see why they get the crowds. Go early, you won't be disappointed.

    5/5 Stars

    Are you sure you had Greek salads? If it had meat on it, most likely it was an antipasto.
