THE best crab cakes I have EVER had in my ENTIRE life. And I've had them in Baltimore. Just sayin'. Freakin' fabulous. I will be dreaming about them for some time to come.

This was absolutely the best meal of the whole trip. My husband and I went at 5:00 on a Saturday and were seated right away. I'm glad we went when we did, as there was a line around the block when we left at 6:30!

Our waiter, Guy, was fantastic. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The drinks were nice and strong, and reasonably priced for the area. We ordered a half dozen of their signature oysters and wished we got a dozen, they were that good. My husband got the catfish special, and I had barbecued shrimp. The shrimp were excellent, you could tell they were really fresh. My husband loved the catfish, he said it was the best seafood he's ever eaten. For the price and location, you really can't beat this place. My husband and I were disappointed we didn't go back here for dinner the next night too, as the place we did visit was nowhere near as good. You won't be let down with this place.

The food was absolutely great...great taste and great service. Errol was our waiter and he was friendly and on time with his service. My girlfriend loves this place and this was my first time going...I see why she loves and now Oceana Grill is one of new faves.

We ate at Oceana on Sunday, November 22, 2015. The food was delicious AS ALWAYS. We had the appetizer crab cakes(the best crab cakes in Nola), the blackened catfish poboy, red beans and rice, fried catfish and my little one had the chicken strips. We sat upstairs and had the most wonderful waiter, CJ. He was very attentive, polite, and had a great sense of humor. We eat here at least once each time we visit the city and we will be requesting CJ from now on!
