Great decor & ambiance, imbecile service, lovely menu, but the food was below average. We dined there on thanksgiving . The chicken fried lobster had such salty breading I couldn't eat it, the oyster dressing was bland & tasteless, the Brussels sprouts were too chewy & tough. All of these concerns could have been easily fixed with small adjustments. We... More

My husband and I went to the Oceanaire for their 2nd Annual Oyster Bash on our anniversary. We did not attended the first oyster bash but we thought it may be fun, so we arranged transportation for the all inclusive event. The price advertised was $75.00 per person for appetizers and wine/champagne – all inclusive. However, when I paid online,... More

Great evening with friends during devour Indy. They had a special menu for Devour Indy. We also had several different oysters. They have a great selection. You have a selection for each course. I had the Pork Belly Seared California White Sea Bass for my main dish. Highly recommended. Decor is reminiscence of the 40's. It is in the old... More

The oysters are pricey, but you're about as far from an ocean as is possible. The relish tray is cool and the bar very neat. Great stop for a seafood lover.

Very nice restaurant. Excellent service and food. A bit pricey but worth it to have a nice meal out when downtown. The sides are served family style, which is nice. 5 of us were able to easily share the sides and we all got plenty of food. Definitely will keep this on our list of places to eat.

A co-worker and I met for lunch during a conference and while the food was very good, we found the service to be extremely slow. It took almost an hour for our salads to be served. Not sure if this is the norm but did only see 5 other occupied tables. I ordered the crab cake sliders...3 on the plate... More

The good and the service were very good, but $22.00 is far too much for one (maybe one and one half) ounce of foie gras.

Dinner with hubbie and friends. Clam chowder was superb, chopped seafood salad had lots of shrimp & crab, crab cakes were perfect. Excellent quality to all the food, our server was polite and professional. Worth the price for a special evening.

What's NOT to love? To start: The Oceanaire drink, oysters on the half shell, pear salad. Beautiful presentation...delicious fare. Entrees: Lobster, asparagus, truffle mashed potatoes, and chicken fried lobster? Oh my!! Dessert: Baked Alaska Most deserving of this restaurants rating.

As sleek as a 1930s ocean liner, yet as relaxed as a dinner on the shore, the Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire.
