Our meals were excellently flavored with a variety of spices and the oysters were extremely fresh and tasty with incredible cocktails-unfortunately no room for desert-but next time we'll bring the kids and that won't be a problem

We eat at Oceanaire on a regular basis. The last few times the service has been incredibly slow. The Servers are always good but the food takes a really long time to get to your table. They were only about six tables in the whole restaurant and it took over 45 minutes to get our food. It’s just incredibly disappointing when you spend so much money on dinner. I had the 10 ounce filet and it was marginal. It had a lot of fat in it. I never want to complain but I was incredibly disappointed

This was our first visit and we were impressed with the wide selection of seafood available. We tried the calamari, crab cakes and mahimahi and it was all very fresh and beautifully presented. Our server was prompt and attentive. We will definitely go back to the Oceanaire Seafood Room on our next trip to Indianapolis.

We had a lovely dinner for our third anniversary. Our server suggested the lobster tail, dynamite style. It was delicious. I am glad I branched out and followed her suggestion. The Baked Alaska for dessert was AMAZING. We enjoyed the quiet ambiance, and exceptional service. We did not have to ask for anything while we were dining. An exceptional dining experience.

This was our first time at Oceanaire. Overall we really enjoyed the experience. The waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was really good for the most part. We ordered the crab cakes and they were amazing. We added a chopped salad and it was good too. We also added the lobster mac & cheese for a side and it was ok. The cheese was super watery. If it would of been a thicker richer cheese sauce I would of enjoyed it so much more. Plus the price was too high for the side for how it tasted. We also ended with the Creme Brulee and it was just not up to par. It tasted like it had been sitting in the fridge way to long and had become to gelatinous. The top was burnt and left a horrible after taste. We love Creme Brulee so when i get a bad one I know. We still really enjoyed most of our meal and the experience so i chose to give my review a 4 stars.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food as always did not disappoint. We had the scallops and they were tender and delicious. Also had the fried lobster and I will definitely get this again. This is a place we always enjoy visiting and the best part is they have the escargot appetizer we love!!

The room was so dark it was very hard to even read the menu. The food was OK, lobster tail was kind of small for the amount of money spent. It should’ve been a little larger.

The food was fantastic. Second to none, as it always has been. Service was also outstanding, and could not have been better.

I only have one complaint. We were seated at a table upstairs, which is not a problem. But the table was up against a corner, and it was extremely small for two people. There was not enough room in the corner to back up both chairs at the same time to get up from the table. We had to move the table in order for us to get up one at a time. Both my wife and I are avid runners, so physique was not the problem here.

My wife and I chose Oceanaire for NYE after attending the afternoon Pacer game. Arrived a little early, but was taken care of immediately. The waiter was very helpful and attentive. We had cocktails and shared the shrimp cocktail. Very tasty and the sauce very manageable. My wife had the shrimp and I had the Haddock. Both entrees were well prepared and plenty of food. Also shared the wedge salad and cream corn. Both very good. We’ll definitely return.

Expected more and was disappointed. Been there 4 times in the past. Crab whipped potatoes were undercooked , crab was rubbery. Asparagus was tough. Crab cakes were underseasoned. For this much money , I would expect more.

I love Oceanaire, but they do keep it really dark in there and it would be nice to be able to see the amazing food you are eating. Love all their unique entree options, the service was wonderful, and enjoyed the special touches to make my husbands birthday special.

For a $200 dinning experience, I would have preferred a warmer and more ornate atmosphere with soothing beautiful music rather than dark wall, dim lighting, a view of the parking garage across the street, and up tempo jazz. Not sure who they are trying to appeal to; perhaps not the older generation of which I am one. I wouldn't spend that amount of money (no alcohol purchased), for that particular type of experience. The food was, however, very good.

We eat at Oceanaire quite often and it’s usually amazing, however today was quite disappointing. The Alaskan Crab leg was overcooked, the king crab claw was very small for the $30 price tag, the fries for the fish and chips was old and cold and had to be remade, the service was very slow - for the price we paid, it was a disappointment.

One of our all-time favorites! Great service, great food. We drive 120 miles one way because it is worth the effort! Get the “angry” lobster for sure.
