While the Oceanaire chain gets dazzling reviews at its other locations, this one disappoints. For the prices it commands, service should be flawless, but here the dishes are often mixed up and poorly made. All is not lost, though. The decor works in the nautical theme of the extravagant 1930s ocean liners. The saving grace lies in its impeccable oyster bar. If you are willing to pay the prices, stick to the sides like hash browns, which are crunchy on the outside and blended with cheddar on the inside, and concentrate on the regional dishes such as the Chesapeake-style crab cakes.
