The service was superb as usual. We were seated promptly and a review of the specials ensued. I had the crab cake appetizer with clam chowder. The chowder was good but I found the crab cake to be a little fishy and there were no large clumps of crab as had been served on other occassions (disappointed). My friend had the spinich salad and salmon collar. She enjoyed every bite. Our other friend had the cod special and once again enjoyed it. The potato s augratin with bacon were delish (who doesn t like bacon).
I had a great dining experience. I started with the famous crab cakes. I am impressed they lived up to all the hype. They are the best crab cakes I ever had in my life. Then I had a couple of fresh Kumamoto oysters. Yum. And for my main course I had the kid dynamite crab/fish dish. Everything was very fresh and presented well. I was also impressed by the portions. Would definitely go again.
Review is based on happy hour. Happy hour is weekdays between 5-6 pm. The food was tasty but nothing fancy. We ordered a dozen oyster for $1 each, calamari, and fish and chips. The oyster was fresh. Fish and chips was not worth $7. Only 2 pieces of fish and very salty fries. I think they used sea salt for the fries which made them very salty. The calamari was spicy and we didn't even finish it.
I actually came to Oceanaire with my friends because they are fanatics of Brian Malarkey. I went along because it was Restaurant Week and I just wanted to try something new. Like others before me, the crab cake is delicious. The only appetizer I wouldn't order is the iceberg wedge, which is actually a 7.95 iceberg lettuce cut in half with tomatoes. Two entrees are great, the Shark and the Mahi Mahi. Both taste great...but the Shark goes really fast. For the desserts, I highly recommend all of them. They taste great. The Sunset Kiss leaves a refreshing taste in your mouth.
Everything on the menu is delicious and will certainly not disappoint. I can eat seafoods forever if these were cooked the way these guys cook it. Even if their specialty is seafoods, the desserts are also definitely worth saving some space for (check the creme brulee out!!). The overall decor is very elegant and the servers are very warm and friendly. Thanks to their wonderful staff and their executive chef, I will certainly recommend this to anyone. As a matter of fact, I have been to this place twice in just one week!
