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.

Celebrated Wife's Birthday. Greeted by hostess with a birthday card with staff-signatures, accompanied by a menu with Wife's name printed on top. Was seated immediately at a desirable table with view (as requested); extremely attentive service by multiple employees aside from server. Manager visited our table twice to make certain all was well. Food was above average but not exceptional;... More

We left room for Chocolate Mousse and... More

We had a great meal at Oceanaire. Everything was made to perfection. We knew it would be expensive going in and it was.......However, when the meal measures up to the price, I never complain and I am not complaining.

Always one of our favorite places down town. We had such a nice lunch to celebrate Mother's Day. The tremendous selection of oysters on the half shell made a exploration of a dozen and the oyster Rockefeller a fun start. The special Mother's Day strawberry drink was a hit. ( a couple times) Steak and shrimp, stuffed fish, smoked Mac... More

This was one of our dinner stops during a convention that we were in town for. Lousy weather the evening we went, so it was a good night to be inside eating some good seafood. While waiting on our table, we had drinks and a couple trays of assorted oysters and everything was fine (except for it being unnerving when... More

I decline to get a detailed review on this establishment only because I am from Florida and seafood is kind of my thing. I will say that the ambiance and the wait staff and the food items that I did have are good.

Went for their happy hour ($1 Oysters, can't beat that!) and had a few drinks. The male bartender (forgot his name) was amazing! He just made me whatever he wanted and they all were so delicious! He was worth the trip!
