Excellent menu as always, and exquisitely prepared. Service was above and beyond - made my husband's birthday very special in trying times. Not crowded at all and social distancing and mask wearing is maintained - felt very safe.

We went for my birthday, the food was great and our servers were very attentive. I had the Seafood mix dinner. I did enjoy every bite, as well as the yummy calamari. We were placed in the back corner of the upper room. If was closed off, but maybe during covid, that was the place to be seated. All in all the experience was very pleasant and I was very grateful for the Baked Alaska birthday surprise. We will return for another dinner in the future.

Our server was very nice and attentive to us. He was an excellent server. The food was exceptional as always here. I had stuffed lobster and my husband had halibut. I also had oyster Rockefeller an husband had the New England clam chowder. He stated it was the best clam chowder he has ever eaten which says a lot because we go to Maine a lot and everywhere we go he orders clam chowder so he was very impressed. I was in heaven eating lobster

The food was delicious! The staff was extremely nice. When making the reservations I expressed that it was a surprise dinner for my husband. The menu had Happy Birthday at the top and we were given an amazingly delicious free dessert.

The food and service were very good. The only issue I had was being charged for a mask. One of the people in my group forgot their mask. The restaurant charged us $1 for a mask. I guess the prices they are charging are not enough to cover a paper mask.
Then as the night went on I saw people being seated that were not wearing a mask.

Salmon was excellent. Chicken Fried Lobster (recommended) POOR. Hash Browns ala Oceanaire Poor. Calamari Fair. Shrimp Coctail large shrimp, average taste. Oysters good. No bread or complimentary morsels upon seating poor. Halibut excellent. Hostess (s) were excellent. Server we believe to have been from the kitchen based on attire...? Overall value of evening poor.

Food not worth the price, the shrimp was so dried and portions are so small like European menu's. The saver was not too great, she was busy. This was our first time and we will never return.

Since the pandemic, we really haven't been going out much and this was really our first time inside a restaurant. Everyone was socially distanced and wore masks. All of the staff were very pleasant . Out waiter was well informed, friendly and polite. The food was outstanding. I had the seared Ahi tuna and it was absolute perfection. My husband had 6 oysters and the jumbo shrimp scampi, which he said were both excellent. For dessert, we shared the pumpkin ice cream, which was plenty for 2 people. We are grateful for a wonderful evening.

Server was excellent but he had an accent and we couldn't understand him with mask on.
They were serving red potatoes with another meal yet I couldn't have those with my meal...no reason why.
Lobster was overcooked and tough. Husband had filet...it was awful...no taste at all
We've been here many times before but the food has really gone downhill...sad.

Iwent to The Oceanaire Friday night Oct. 30th at 6:20. It was my first time eating there, I went there since the restaurant was offering their Halloween special that started on Thursday October 29th, and it'll run until Sunday November 1st. Walking inside the restaurant you have to wear your mask which is a requirement everywhere now, no bright lights, the lightening in the restaurant gave off that romantic feel to me. It's two floors, I sat on the second floor, you can eat inside, order to go, or even order delivery if you're staying in downtown Indianapolis area. My appetizer I had a bowl of Chowder which was okay to me, second meal I ordered the Jumbo Shrimp Scampi with angel hair pasta, garlic butter sauce along with the jumbo shrimps. Lastly, for my dessert I had a pumpkin sundae Salted Caramel Sauce, Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, and to drink I had La Marca Prosecco. I really love that delicious pumpkin sundae, and as far as my dinner jumbo shrimp Scampi it was okay since I'm not a fan of angel hair pasta, and it was too spicy for me at first so I had to get it remade. Also, that Halloween special 3 course meal for $39 per guest very good deal, and the food was delicious.

We were very glad Oceanaire was open given the issues caused by COVID. On the upside the food and service were excellent. On the downside they ran out of the oysters rock appetizer and we had a fairly early reservation (7:00 PM). Perhaps that was understandable given the limited seating capacity because of COVID and the preparation time of the dish. I was surprised and somewhat dismayed when we asked for bread to go with our appetizer and were told they had to charge for the bread (only $3.50) and relish tray which heretofore had been included as part of the experience - in other words without charge. We enjoyed our oysters on the half shell and our entrees’ - the Halibut Special and the Ahi Tuna as well as the Baked Alaska dessert- all well prepared. Despite the minor reopening pains it was a very enjoyable evening and we plan on returning in the near future.

My steak was well done, ordered medium.
Had crab pieces of shell in my Crab Louie.

However, the waitress was wonderful and the environment was perfect. We enjoyed the complimentary Baked Alaska for our anniversary, and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his calamari and lobster and king crab boil.
