Is Oceanaire Open?

I passed by there on the way home tonight and there was a sign outside saying they were open. I was running a little behind so I didn't have a chance to peak in. Did I miss something? Their website gives Spring 2008 as a ballpark opening date. I have eaten at the one in Seattle and Dallas, so this really excited me.

  1. We went last night - the first night open. Excellent. Can't wait to go back. Oysters, oysters and more oysters!

      one quick question; what was the price per oyster?

    2. Went last night as well. Beautiful room, nice bar. Sampled several appetizers and some raw bar items as well. This place is going to be great. Pricey entrees but the quality does not disappoint.

      1. So this is part of that big chain. I wondered about that.
        Here's the site if anyone wants to check it out.

        1. Oysters ranged from 2.25 to 3.25 per. West Coast drawing the more expensive. Island Creeks from Duxbury were also about 3 bucks per. Total about 10 choices.

          1. We just went last night.. the food was really good! We started with the Clams Casino and Portuguese style mussles, both of which were awesome. We even asked for extra bread to dip in the broth from the mussles, it was so good! We don't do any of the raw bar stuff, so can't comment on that. Our entrees were excellent as well; I had mahi-mahi, my husband had salmon and my brother in law had lobster. For deserts we tried maple creme brulee and pear cranberry crisp; both were very tasty as well though the creme brulee was a little too sweet for me. Entree portions were sized just right; the mussles, the side dishes and the deserts were huge. The rooms and bar were really nice and the service was top notch. It wsn't very busy when we were there, but I suspect that will change!
