I took my fiancée to the Oceanaire for her 21st birthday and it was one of the best decisions I've made. We both loved the place! Right away when you walk in they make you feel like you are the most important people in the world. There wasn't a thing to complain about. Our server, Wendy, treated us wonderfully and helped us through the menu giving us her recommendations. And the food was superb! I ordered the lobster and my fiancée ordered the crab cakes. They were so delicious! Everything was cooked perfectly and was absolutely delicious. And everything was fresh and well-prepared. Additionally, you can see right into the kitchen, so you know your food is treated well. One thing I should add. Do not come here if you are looking for a quick meal. We were there for over two hours. It takes time to order drinks, appetizers, entrée, and dessert. But I am not complaining. It gave us time to soak in the atmosphere, and enjoy our food. By the time we left, I was satisfied and was surprised to see we had been there for that long. I highly recommend this place to anyone who enjoys fresh seafood and can afford it. I can't wait to go back!

Sons 24th Bday with 5 guests total. 1 service person waiting on about 15 tables. Service was obviously poor followed by waitress spilling beer on my guest and myself then waitress simply asks is we needed more towels to dry ourselves off. Table was soaked too. After a half hearted apology, we left. Sad to say but at one point in time Oceanaire was a 5 star restaurant. I would have thought they would have reached out to me to see how they could rectify the situation. Guess I'm an optimist.

I definitely recommend going during covid times as it is was pretty quiet.. before covid times, it was always packed and loud. The food was extraordinary. Very flavorful from appetizers, oysters, main course to dessert. Highly recommend but comes at a cost $$$$.. definitely worth the money

Oceanairre is a fabulous experience. We had swordfish and salmon with hashed browns and asparagus, topped off by a fabulous dessert.
The service is extraordinary... we were totally safe inside and outside the restaurant; our server and the host were extraordinary.
The food was among the best we've ever had... the food was done perfectly, the portions were generous and the selection was really broad.
The ambience was excellent as well... we felt very comfortable, it was private, we had a great anniversary dinner and time alone.

The Oceanaire was fun and super quiet. It was very different than 2019 .Every other table was off the market. Our drinks, especially Oceanaire 2.0 was very delicious.Oysters from the Washington and Massachusetts States absolutely delicious. Shrimps, lobster tails, scallops were fresh, prepared to the perfection.Wines were appropriate for the seafood we had. Doug our waiter was nice, very attentive , very polite. Great night thank you Oceanaire Team.Wearing masks between the table and the restroom have no sense. Being forced to wear a mask when I enter the restaurant and than be able to take it off when i am sitting...where is the logic! All restaurants should stand up against these regulations!

We did full dining We split an app and a salad, then two great entries, a drink with apps, and a bottle of wine with dinner. Baked Alaska for dessert and after-dinner drinks a cappuccino to finish it was top dollar dining close to $ 400.00 all in

Our server did a fine job of leading us to the right choices
We had calamari to start which was good
All the salads were fresh
We had three halibut Louise which were excellent
We also had two scallops spicy
The last person had a steak which was fine
We got all the sides.. hash browns Mac & cheese
Creamed corn & green beans... all good
The desserts were cheese cake key lime pie & baked Alaska.... all were delicious & we ate them all.
A little pricy but would go back

Our waiter, Chuck, was so knowledgeable with the menu and was incredibly helpful in his menu recommendations. When they say their seafood is fresh, they absolutely mean it. The seared Yellowfin Tuna was absolutely delicious! We will definitely be returning!

We went for my birthday. We tried some oysters and the shrimp cocktail for appetizers. The waiter was very knowledgeable and gave us ideas for which oysters to try. I had the scallops and my husband had the seared tuna. It was amazing. They gave us a complimentary dessert for my birthday. It was an amazing meal.
