3 out of 5 stars

Much like the bad boy with a checkered past, we don’t recommend you fall in love with any one item at The Oceanaire: The menu changes so frequently according to what’s freshest that you’re unlikely to see many repeats. One exception is the near-legendary New England clam chowder packed with cream and plump clams. Though there are a dozen locations of this restaurant sprinkled throughout the United States, Oceanaire stays sleek with an interior reminiscent of a cruise ship. Think paneled wood walls, swanky leather booths and marlins hung on the walls.
