Why only 2nd best? Because the best seafood is fresh seafood you eat on the boat immediately after you catch it yourself. Other than that, this is the place to go! Warning - bring a fat wallet. It's not cheap, but I have to say I think it's worth it. Big portions, delicious taste, and unbeatable service. Everyone knows it's... More

Traveling to Indianapolis for business and everyone was in the mood for seafood. We were able to make a reservation fairly easily and got right in. Atmosphere is very nice, and service was outstanding! Our server reviewed the entire menu with us and made helpful suggestions. The couple next to us was celebrating the wife's 70 birthday and they shared... More

The service was marginal. To the credit of the manager, once I pointed out the problem it was corrected and she offered a comp dessert. Food was good, presentation was nice and the atmosphere was too. I have been in comparably priced seafood restaurants in other non-coastal cities where the overall experience was much better.

Delicious Alaskan halibut tonight. Perfect texture and temperature. Portion size for sides is generous. Started with happy hour - delicious oysters. The bartender is a knowledgeable mixologist. He made the best non-alcoholic Moscow mule with grapefruit twist and my husband's mojito was one of the best he's had. Service and setting are excellent.

Relaxing atmosphere. Our server, Sean was amazing! I cannot say enough about how attentive he was to every need. He was super funny and informative. I seriously wanted to bring him home with me. All of the food was fabulous. It was by far the best meal I have ever had dining out. We were visiting from out of town... More

The food was great and the oysters were briny! I loved the seafood offerings, fast service and knowledgable staff. The oyster offerings ranged from VA, MA and ME oysters. I enjoyed them and found them to be fresh and plump. The pasta was delicious as well and the scallops were the biggsst i've eaten. I would certainly return!

This was one of those few places that exceeds expectations in every possible way. The service was excellent even though we had a group of 10. The food was phenomenal. Every single items was exceptional. The most memorable being the chicken fried lobster appetizer. Everyone had to try it and raved about it. Would never have put chicken fried and... More

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.
