I ordered swordfish and wooow... Amazing.. Mushrooms and asparagus as siders. For drink.. Beer and gin tonics. Awesome experience, a little bit expensive but totally worth it

One of the best spots for seafood we have been to in the Midwest. Be prepared for the bill, but always fresh, always well prepared. Staff is seasoned and well trained. Always a good experience.

We found the Oceanaire via Hotel Marquette. Great recommendation. Happy hour James Bond Martini's, filet mignon sliders, and fish tacos WOW! Beautiful place with great service and delicious apps. Could2 have stayed longer, but after two martini's - well, so what I'm a light weight.

We had not been to Oceanaire for some years due to previous years of being unimpressed. We remain so. Overpriced, processed by staff and now they charge 3% on the bill to make up for the minimum wage hike; a greedy move on part of...More

Had a coupon for a free appetizer provided from our hotel so we decided to give this place a shot. Not even a 5 minute stroll from the Embassy Suites, we enjoyed sitting outside with the best service provided by Bri. We honestly can't thank...More

As a vegan with a carnivore bf we both love this place for its freshness and high quality of each item. Wine selection is vast and food menu changes daily. Can't wait to go back!

There isn't nothing to compare it to. We enjoy fine dining when we do go out. This was our 3rd trip to Oceanaire. I'm very conservative and the price is not cheap. But it is worth it. Excellent value for the dollar.

I like to see people dress up when they go to a fine dining restaurant and especially if it's a Saturday Night. I enjoy looking at people who are dressed nice. I FEEL better when I know I look good. And I don't know why... More
