From the moment we walked into the bar, we knew this restaurant was exceptional. Before dinner we had cocktails and a variety of appetizers that were all delicious. (Loved the James Bond martini). My seafood soup w/dinner was especially good as was everything presented. For my birthday, a Baked Alaska, delivered by the Assistant Manager, was torched tableside. Mike says... More

We started with Malpeque oysters. The sauce was very well seasoned with horseradish, and gave a nice boost to the oysters. We shared a crab cake, and it was, again, quite good for mid continent. My husband had surf and turf, I had the simply dressed salmon, and our son had lobster. Everything was cooked well--not overdone. Nothing about their... More

The waiter bragged about the Crabcake, so we ordered that as an appetizer. It was good, but didn't live up to expectations he created with us. He oversold us on how good it was going to be. Everything else was spot on with his recommendations though. We had a large group, service was prompt, friendly, and helpful. I really enjoyed... More

Went here for lunch for a friends birthday. I ordered the Jon Dory Fish with asparagus and mash potatoes. It was very good, not fishy at all just a smaller portion for me. Since it was her birthday we got a free Baked Alaska which was pretty cool. It was good but the cake at the bottom was VERY dense.... More

It was my mom's birthday so they printed that on the menu. Although they spelled her name wrong. Too bad whomever does that didn't pay close enough attention to details. Aside from that, dinner was very nice. The staff all signed a birthday card for my mom and they sent over a free baked Alaska dessert. I'm a vegetarian so... More

I am a quality - delicious food type of reviewer. I'm willing to pay for both. This is a high end restaurant- yet worth every penny! Fresh quality foods. Great service. Friendly staff. Great atmosphere! Ate here 2x in 3 days. Bone in ribeye and strip steaks were excellent. Perfectly cooked - even as a take out order! Seafood salad,... More

My husband made reservations at Oceanaire for our 10th Anniversary. The host and servers did an excellent job of making the evening memorable and special. The food was delicious, and the server was very attentive. It was such a great evening. For the cost, there were a couple details that caused me to rate the restaurant at a 4 instead... More

Hosted a business dinner in the private dining room. The food was great and the service top notch. Bridget the sales and events coordinator made planning the event so easy and was very helpful with both menu and wine selections. The custom printed menus added that extra little touch.

Loved this place! The food was delicious. I had the crab legs special and the server even took the crab out of the shells for me. That is terrific service. And the crab legs were tender and steamed to perfection. We had theater tickets for a play at the Guthrie and when we told our server about the reservations, she... More

My family and I went out to dinner at Oceanaire for a birthday dinner. We had a dinner party of 9 and we had no complaints! Our server Lisa was excellent and knew her job very well. She was always available and never looked confused or irritated. She genuinely smiled and was a joy the whole night. Our food was... More

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 Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole. 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.
