Very nice upscale restaurant with good service. Other than having trouble getting my lobster out of the shell to eat, what food we had was really good. I think it's a little too pricey for what you get, though.

Shocking to my surprise. Yes seafood in Indy. Excellent dish, grilled/bake oysters in the shell. Great service and atmosphere. Would go again. If you go you won't be disappointed.

Our visit to the Oceanaire in Indianapolis was wonderful. Great selection of seafood prepared to perfection. We thoroughly enjoyed the oysters as well as the choices of fish. We will definitely go back when we're in town. I would highly recommend this place

Fresh fish, ample portions constantly changing menu but consistent quality. Love the Crab Cocktail as a starter ... any of that day's "catch" will be terrific. Interesting desserts (creme brulee is great).

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.

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.
