I have been to this upscale chain in other cities in the past and have always enjoyed top notch fresh fish and seafood coupled with outstanding service, but tonight was a total disappointment. Our server first seemed in a hurry to take our order, then...More

Again, me and my foodie children, opted for the 5pm seating at Oceanaire on our staycation in Indy. The service was on-point; timing excellent, server knowledge very good - could use a bit more training in oyster characteristics (but that is a fine point). Dining...More

Love to eat here for lunch during Devour Indy. Wish they were open for lunch more often. Shrimp and grits are great. Spicy and filling.

Have been here several times. Be prepared to pay for the oysters at $4.00+ per oyster. Drinks were good but again, expensive and they do not have ANY draft beer. But worth the money for the food & service.

Still one of the best places in Indy to eat. I'd recommend, using the valet, it's cheap and I've had too many door dings at the parking lot across the street. It is a little bright in there and why the bathrooms are on the...More

On a recent visit to Oceanaire Seafood Room our server Andre J was the reason we can give the evening a 5. He was attentive and patient. We loved the bread course and the tray of relishes that we were served while waiting for our...More

The experience is very classy. Wait staff are very well trained and the food is good. We just thought it was expensive for what amounts to a seafood dinner. For the money, you get better value elsewhere.

I wore jeans and a nice blouse. There were guests dressed in business attire and casual. I think as as long as you look nice you'll fit right in.

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 steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. 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.
