We have been to Oceano many times because we love the location in downtown Clayton and the service is great. I really want to love this place but the food is always average. Not bad, but just not great.

I live across the street from this restaurant, I know the waiters, the chefs, the bartenders, and the owner. It's a class act with a flair for the seafood but with a classy sampling of nearly any solution for a particular palette. If it's not on the menu the way you like it, they will do all they can to...

Stopped by while on a short tour of Clayton with my date. Told her how much I liked the restaurant for drinks after work. To my surprise, they were open and had a GREAT Happy Hour. Sliders, crab cakes, mussels and mixed drinks make this a must do for Clayton.

Brunch was wonderful at Oceans. Lived sitting outside. It had a European ambiance. Food was truly delicious and the fruit and salad was fresh. The only thing that was not 5star, was the fact that they did not offer freshly squeezed orange juice. Something I love in the better quality brunch places.

They had a really lovely lunch here. Nice setting. Great ambiance. It was a nice lunch with friends. I would recommend it as a nice couples evening place. The entrance was unimpressive, but the indoor patio setting was perfect. We were promptly greeted and the staff was properly attentive - not too intrusive but there whenever anything was needed. I...

Did not expect the Midwest to have great fish. Pleasantly surprised. Both of our meals were very good. Crabcake sandwich highly recommended. Service was OK.
