Nice business luncheon. Expensive, but tasty with excellent service. Different fresh fish specials daily.

This was a special birthday dinner for a 12 year old. The staff had a special notation on the menu wishing our group a Happy Birthday! Our waiter couldn't do enough to make our evening special, the seafood was delicious and we had a flaming baked Alaska prepared at our table for the birthday cake which was delicious as well....

Stopped for family dinner on a Monday evening. Service was well above average and drinks/food came fast. The food was great. Shrimp and grits, crab cake, oysters, salmon, mahi magi and ribeye were tasty. We opted for the death by chocolate cake and wow, that thing is a beast. A very enjoyable dining experience.

The atmosphere is nice and I heard a lot of great things by many friends but I left Oceanaire hungry. Down the hall is Manny's. For the same price I would have left full. I was disappointed and when asked to go again I often mention other places.

We ate here twice during our trip to Minneapolis. The seafood was fantastic. I had the best scallops ever! It was a special of the night and the waiter suggested the preparation which was perfect! We enjoyed the crab cakes and the crab cocktail appetizer. Our salads were fresh and the guys enjoyed their steak and swordfish entrees. We returned... More

I’m a big Prince fan. For my birthday, I (of course!) wanted to go to Paisley Park, outside on Minneapolis. Who leaves 85 degree sun in FL for 30 degree snow in MN? This girl!! On the night of my birthday, 12/3 we really wanted blue crabs, but since we were not in Florida, we got over it and decided... More

We went for dinner and fortunately had a reservation as very busy on a Friday evening. Our server was excellent although unfortunately I don't remember his name. He was friendly, informative and attentive. We had the tuna poke and oysters for appetizers and they were both exceptional as well as appropriate serving size. For our entrees I had the stuffed...

We came here for a business dinner. I went for the swordfish on a bed of diced vegetables but it was really bland. One of our party went for the Alaskan Char which was huge. Pricey.

Went to Oceanaire last night for a dinner with business associates and customers. We were there for nearly four hours discussing business and such. Our waitress was so friendly and helpful. She didn't make us feel like we had to hurry up and leave like most restaurants do. We split the chilled shellfish appetizer with shrimp, mussels, oysters on the... More

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