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.

oysters and beer

Very enjoyable oysters/raw seafood and decent beer selection. Bar area was filled with football games in an upscale, restrained dining enviornment. Will almost certainly revisit.

Seafood in Indiana is hard to come by. This is a favorite place to go when we're craving great food from the sea. The menu changes based on what is fresh. Lots of varieties of fish will be available and various kinds of other seafood. Staff is always extremely helpful at helping you select a dish. It's not cheap...but it's... More

Are here recently with colleagues. I didn't have the fish - the filet mignon was very good - but everyone who had it said it was excellent. Nice level of service; attentive without being too in the face. Overall good experience.

Dinner was excellent, the service was impeccable and overall just a fantastic experience. Our waitress, Sara was top notch and very knowledgeable. She recommended a fresh fish and preparation I was not familiar with, based on what I told her I liked and she nailed it perfectly. Delicious! The restaurant itself is really nice inside as well. My dining companion... More

Don't get me wrong, if you want great seafood in Indianapolis, you can't do much better than Oceanaire. Just take out a bank loan ahead of time. $15 for 6 frilled stalks of asparagus. Wine predictably marked up 400%. $18 for a golf ball sized crab cake. Everything was very fresh and tasty, but I still can't get around how... More

Oceanaire Restaurant in downtown Indianapolis is one of the finest seafood restaurant that my wife and I have ever dined at. First, the setting is a beautiful one. Second, the service was outstanding and we recommend that you ask to be served by Andrej if possible -- he was outstanding. As far as dining options, seafood is what they are... More

We bought a certificate for the Chef's tasting menu at a charity auction and used it to celebrate our anniversary this year. What a meal! They had special menus for us congratulating us for 27 years of marriage and had each course listed along with wine pairings. I had to stop drinking wine after the third course (way too much...
