    Delicious old fashioned with Guinness Stout reduction syrup for me; spiced pear mule for my bride. Huge fresh oysters followed by a wonderful beet salad with fresh greens pecans and blue cheese. My wife let me taste her clam chowder and it did not disappoint. Chicken fried lobster with hot sauce over cheesy grits was yummy. I had possibly the best fish dish I’ve every had. A rubbed pan seared Chilean sea bass with mango over broccolini melted in my mouth and I was sad to take the last bite. I could’ve licked my plate if my mother hadn’t taught me better! Our wine was a Kim Crawford Sauvignon blanc from New Zealand. A memorable meal for sure. Brad was an excellent waiter and his suggestions were spot on.

    The service was great. Our waitress suggested some drinks and we enjoyed those. She also had great knowledge of food allergies(my wife has Celiac) and suggested 2 very delicious options that we both loved. She also made sure the cooks knew about her allergy and made some accommodations that let my wife enjoy some of my meal also(we shared). Overall, terrific service and unbelievably delicious food. That being said, I do have to say it was a little pricey. But we didn’t care because it was such a great overall experience.

    We've been going to Oceanaire for years and usually big celebrations. The food and service were impeccable, but considering it was a birthday celebration was disappointed with being seated in the bar area. The restaurant wasn't 1/2 filled so we lost the ambiance. Disappointed with the hostesses selection of where we should go.

    Wonderful food! Went for our anniversary and our menus had our name printed on them along with happy anniversary. We had Doug as a server and he did an exceptional job! He knew the menu and made suggestions based on our preferences. He took lots of time educating us on oysters. We had oysters, clam chowder, a live Maine lobster, a trio of shrimp, crab cake, lobster tail and asparagus. We had sides of creamed corn and lobster and crab Mac and cheese. Finished with baked Alaskan as a gift from the restaurant. The crab cake, clam chowder, and Mac and cheese were some of the best we ever had! They prepared and shelled the Maine lobster for us so that was very nice also. Highly recommend! If you are lucky to have Doug as your server- you will have a memorable dining experience!

    I had a reservation of a party of 6. We were seated & assisted by our waiter right away. The inside of the restaurant was beautiful and calming. Medium noise level but also very close seating so it worked out. Food and drinks were amazing and exceeded my expectations! I had the grilled oysters, which I highly recommend, king crab legs, raw oysters and and crab cake. Chefs kiss. I would strongly recommend this place to any friends and family.

    Fox was amazing as always and as a result of the times the prices have clearly gone up significantly. Even while waiting to be seated my husband remarked that the music was loud. After being seated we noticed how loud it was generally—everyone was having to talk loudly over the music. Food and service were excellent as always. Only reason for four stars instead of five was the noise level.

    Went for our anniversary but was very disappointed. App portions are very small. Overcooked both entrees to the point it was disrespect to the quality of meat/fish. Will never go back to Oceanaire. There are so many better options for this price point. Would much rather go to numerous other restaurants before ever coming back. Service was not great either. Felt like they were rushing. Forgot multiple things and had to be constantly be reminded about what we needed. Didn’t do one thing to make our experience special. Much better ways to spend $500.

    Food is largely the same one that you may have had a year ago. Consistent and good; but not imaginative. Service is harried at the beginning, but comes to a standstill before the main course arrives. Extensive wine list, but many not in stock! The ambiance is attractive, but the noise level is way too high, to have a conversation. Management would be well advised to install some noise dampening panels in the restaurant. Overall though it is a well managed restaurant.

    From drinks to desserts or meal was simply incredible! The crab cake, shrimp cocktail, and oysters were great starters. The jerk Chilean Seabass was almost indescribable. The sockeye salmon was simplistic but complete perfection. The dark chocolate flourless torte was a great exclamation point to the meal. Our server Chuck did a fabulous job!!
