Description: 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.

We had a wonderful dinner of fresh raw oysters, escargot & puffed pastry, crab mashed potatoes & cheese and lobster thermador with creamed spinach & mushrooms. Delicious! Topped it off with baked alaska for dessert. My son had a steak with shrimp garnishes. His steak was a little too salty but other than that everything was fantastic. The service by Claudia could not have been better. We were so well tended and the room we were in was so pleasant and semi private. We loved it.
We definately will be back again. We have been there before and always had good a experience.

For $20 bucks, a pretty good deal. Had some clam chowder that was delicious. And then a deep fried walleye sandwhich. Very good. The fries are the skinny shoestring kind which are crisp and not mushy. Just how I like them. Desert was delicious. Good lunch

Went with 2 other business companions. I've enjoyed other Oceanaires and this one is also excellent...but pricy!
We overate and overdrank, but the service and food were fantastic.
Suggest that they soften the room up a bit, as it is somewhat like a cafeteria, with tables packed closely and lighting overly bright.

We expected something special for Valentines Day and we certainly got it. Tequila lime ceviche, duck breast and scallops, crab legs poached in butter sauce, and a shared side of bacon au gratin potatoes. Perfect on all counts. We were too full for dessert but enjoyed watching others have the flaming Baked Alaska presentation. We did get a V Day gift of cotton candy from the chef. Service was perfect too. It's a bit pricey but definitely not all that bad and a good value. I like to shake things up in terms of what to do for special days, but this was so good I could see making it an annual tradition - cuz that's romantic too! Thanks for a lovely evening.

Impeccable casual service (how else do you say attentive, personable, prompt, professional) and the best seafood anywhere.
Happy hour is a real bargain. Fresh seafood superbly prepared.
