Fresh Continental Cuisine with a Tropical Flair best describes Ocean 60. Creating two Establishments in One, you can dine in the Main Dining Room for a more intimate evening or the Martini Lounge for a more casual experience. Local artist, Enrique Mora displays his vibrant paintings on the wall. Located one half block to the Ocean and across from a Resort Hotel, Ocean 60 has something for everyone from a Full Bar Specializing in Martinis and offering Live Music as well as a Quaint Wine Bar in the Dining Room for that intimate feel.

"Ocean 60 has become my go-to place when visitors come to town. The food and the service are always top-notch, and there's a vibrant atmosphere but you can still have a conversation. On this visit my husband and our guest really enjoyed the snowy grouper and shrimp combo. I finally tried the shrimp scampi, and I'm glad I did. Everyone's meal came out hot and perfectly prepared. Not a forkful remained."

"Ocean 60 had disappeared from my radar. Thanks to a gift certificate from my sister, I've rediscovered it and could not be happier. Service was warm and efficient (thanks, Ryan!) The house salad is a treat, a seafood soup du hour deserves a place on the permanent menu. Cuban style pork was tender, and it's accompaniments of sweet potato hash and plantains would make a delicious vegan meal. Hog snapper with shrimp made my husband so happy he devoured the whole plate before I had a chance to try it. Wednesday is ladies night -certain wines and martinis are half price. Try a Grass Skirt martini - pineapple vodka, champagne and pineapple juice."

"The food and the amiable service at Nippers never disappoint. Unfortunately, on this night there was a loud party with DJ and a loud band (or it may have been another DJ, I didn't go outside to check) outside. In addition, the restaurant had mood music playing over the sound system. The three battling forms of music made me wish I'd gone someplace else, but we made the best of it."
