The ocean plays a major role in the décor here, with the namesake color dominating the interior. Subdued lighting lends a relaxed and refined ambiance to the room at night, and live fish tanks act as an enhancement to the oceanic feel. And while this is fine dining, it’s also the Grand Strand, so casual attire is acceptable. However, if this is going to be a rare experience, you might as well dress up and look nice for the occasion.
