A colleague and I were looking for a good spot to enjoy a friday evening dinner after a long week attending a conference. We noticed that the Oceanaire offered a 5-7pm Happy Hour. So, we decided to give it a try. Typically, the happy hour extends both for seating in the bar and outside on their patio area. Since there had been some heavy rain, the day we went had the happy hour limited to the bar area only. We arrived at 5:30 or so, and it was just us and one other couple. By the time we left at around 7:30, the little bar area was totally full-so obviously, it's a popular choice.
The decor in the restaurant is sleek with some fun art-deco touches. The noise level in the restaurant was friendly without being inaudible. The servers were friendly and helpful, offering suggestions and preferences as asked. The happy hour menu is a fabulous deal: offering a selection of their most popular cocktails at great prices (we were big fans of "the Oceanaire" a blue curacao cosmo, and the Prosecco Sangria made with strawberries and cucumber). The food is the best deal yet: served on small plates that were easily shared, they had delicious offerings like ahi tuna sliders, buffalo shrimp, cornmeal fried oysters, blackened fish tacos, etc. The food was super fun, the drinks refreshing: it was a wonderful way to enjoy a friday evening with a friend. If their happy hour was any indication, I would imagine their dinner service is lovely! I've got my fingers crossed that I end up back in this area so I can see if I'm right! :)
