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.

Fresh seafood in a landlocked state...

We try to dine here whenever we spend time in Indianapolis. It's a lovely space in the heart of downtown, excellent service, and an ever-changing menu. Despite being part of the enormous Landry chain, they do a wonderful job of making the dining experience feel special (on one occasion, we dined... read more

Nice location downtown near the Circle Center Mall that is easy to get to. Service was attentive and friendly from the time we walked through the doors. All aspects of our meal were excellent. I especially enjoyed the clam chowder and lobster tail. A large variety of seafood options and a nice wine list as well. Will dine here again... More

A group of us ladies had dinner last night and was served by Julian who is FANTASTIC---everyone was pleasant, the Hostess, the bussers, the other servers...everyone. Julian made great recommendations, he always checked on us and provided service that was top notch. The food was just as great as the service and I am looking forward to visiting the other... More

In a land locked place like Indianapolis you would not expect to find such great fresh seafood. I enjoyed their Alaska Wine Pairing dinner which impressed me with each course. This five course meal was perfectly paired with excellent wine choices. The captain, Jessica Ginsberg provided attentive and helpful answers to my questions. The entire staff does a great job...

It is a fitting title considering they are a seafood restaurant. Fonzie set the standard phrase in motion and the Oceanaire is in keeping with the rule they will never go back to what they were. This restaurant was fantastic when they first opened and for several years making a great reputation for their quality of food and service. Then... More

We first dined here several years ago since it was close to our hotel - we have gone here every time we are in Indy since then. Fresh delicious seafood, great menu, good service and we love the space and atmosphere.

My wife and I recently had our anniversary dinner at Oceanaire. It is a beautifully decorated restaurant. The service is excellent and the fresh seafood is extremely well prepared. I enjoyed the seafood bar and my wife had the bouillabaisse. Both were excellent. On this occasion they did not have some of my favorites unfortunately. When they have Mahi-Mahi and... More

I have eaten at Oceanaire several times over the years as it is always a favorite with my company because the executives come from the East Coast. The Oceanaire is the only seafood place they feel has the same quality of food as the places they are use to in Baltimore. I have tried various seafood dishes in the past... More
