They really go all out when it's a special occasion like a birthday. We were there for my son's birthday. Even though I didn't give them much notice, they still managed to print it on the menu and give us a free baked alaska. I do still wish they had something on the menu besides side dishes for vegetarians to... More

My husband took me to Oceanaire to celebrate my birthday. It was the worst restaurant experience we have had in a very long time. A restaurant that is known for their seafood actually had more steaks on their menu then choices of fresh fish! They started out serving us 2 pieces of bread, when in the past they bring a... More

I always really enjoy the food at Oceanaire. The hashbrowns Oceanaire style are wonderful the steaks are excellent the seafood is superb. The service is quite good in general. It can be a bit pricey, and the atmosphere is not clubby but it's a great place

Had dinner here during restaurant week in Minneapolis. We dined from the set menu and each course was wonderful. The service was 5-Star - ask for Chuck!! Can't wait to go back the next time we are there.

This is as good a fish restaurant as you will find in the Midwest. Great wine list also to compliment your dinner. No question that this is a "five star" for fish.

Wonderful food, excellent wait staff but so loud I could not hear nor talk to the people I had dinner with. It spoiled the experience. Instead of a pleasurable dining experience, I was disappointed.

First time at Oceanaire and it didn't disappoint. Very cool atmosphere coupled with a unique offerings. We arrived near closing and were pleasantly surprised with the late night happy hour offerings. With the kitchen closing soon we opted for an appetizer dinner of filet mignon sliders, homemade crab cake sliders and perfectly cooked calamari! I loved the fresh relish tray... More

We have always been a supporter of Oceanaire but the last 3 times we have gone-have not been impressed. We went last night for our 31st anniversary. It started out fine, but slowly went down hill. We had reservations for 6:15, we waited 45 minutes for our oysters and nearly 2 hours for our main meal. They brought out cups... More

I work in same building and frequent oceanaire with clients. The experience is always solid. Staff is attentive and the food is regularly solid. THE salads are my go to and although entrees can be pricey for lunch it is a treat and very good. One knock is the size of the tables are small and cluttered with plates and... More

The crab cakes were delicious - but very expensive compared to other good crab cakes. However, the service was top notch and the environment is lovely, so I am sure some of the cost is to enjoy the surroundings. But I really didn't think the food merited the prices charged.

Thank Patbro
