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 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.

Are you kidding? Worst. Food. Ever. I ordered the flash fried grouper cheeks, which should have been amazing, and they were dried out, deep fried, hunks of tasteless nothing. Did I say "dried out?" EXTREMELY dried out. I had to ask for lemon because the tomato based sauce, of which about a teaspoon was provided, did nothing to help. The person across the table also had the grouper cheeks; he ordered tartar sauce. Frozen fish sticks are better. My colleague to my left ordered the caprese salad. The HUGE slices of tomato were WHITE. Really? The chef sends out terrible, unripe, tomato - in a dish that FEATURES tomato?? Unfortunately I was there for a business dinner and so did not send anything back, but I will never again dine at any Oceanaire restaurant.

We had dinner at Oceanaire last night and it was delish! There was seven of us that went for our evening meal. We arrived around 7pm with reservations and were promptly seated. We started with an oyster sampler of 6 different varieties from east and west coast. All were firm plump and juicy varying in flavor from slightly sweet to briny. We then followed with the calimari that was lightly fried, crisp and tasty. The beverage service was quick and kept us all watered and liquored up properly. We also shared a cup of the clam chowder and it was rich creamy and chocked full of clams and potatoes! The entrees were large, tasty and with multiple options on toppings or flavorings like angry(spicy) or Louie (crabmeat). We shared the triggerfish Louie and it was spectacular and topped with a huge pile of jumbo lump crabmeat. The facility was clean and fresh and the staff was friendly and paid close attention to our needs. I will definitely be going back next time in Orlando.

Dinner with business associates, nine total. Our waiter was from Brooklyn....all business but efficient. Huge menu of fresh seafood items, and it saw some great looking steaks gone out too. We started with the shrimp ceviche ( basically a shrimp salad with chips). Very refreshing, then a selection of raw oysters. Bread was sour dough deliciousness ! Our fish was light, flaky, with light white wine sauce and fresh lump crabmeat. Very very nice. Drink service was efficient. I did wonder why the waiter bussed most of his own table, but perhaps that is their system. Would definitely return!

Ate here with a fairly large group. Food was good and service was good up until it was time to get the check- then it seemed our server had disappeared!
