Like Carmen Sandiego, elusive Cajun morsels propelled by ocean tides and henchmen are famously impossible to pin down. Take a bite out of its base camp with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gumbos, po’ boys, and other Creole-influenced eats at Oceana Grill. The French Quarter family-friendly feastery serves up classic New Orleans eats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Summon the senses out of bed with the efficiency of a rooster with an alarm clock with Oceana's kicky menu of morning tastes. Try the Cajun omelette ($12.50), with spicy seasonings, mushrooms, and onions, or maw maw's Cajun breakfast ($12), packed with bacon, ham, shrimp, eggs, and rice. Crêpes ($15–$18) call out to lovers of foldable fare with the St. Marie (spinach, cheddar, chicken, and hollandaise) and the St. James (shrimp, crabmeat, onions, red peppers, and cheese). Midday grub includes fried-catfish po’ boys ($9.50), classic cheeseburgers ($9.50), and crab-cake burgers ($9.50). Louisiana-style dinner entrees such as the grilled ahi-tuna "la boheme" topped with barbecued shrimp and served with sautéed veggies ($20) and smoked duck sided with potatoes and vegetables ($21) take care of heartier appetites.
Wash down sizzly flavors with a house specialty sip such as the Sazerac, a fusion of rye whiskey, bitters, sugar, and Herbsaint ($8.50), or a slushy tropical beverage such as the Golden Cadillac (Patron, Cointreau, and Grand Marnier float, $11). Wine, beer, and champagne selections appease more traditional tastes. A cheerful waitstaff, festive décor replete with exposed brick, colorful artwork, and airy windows lend to the lively ambience. Stop by Oceana to perch on wrought-iron courtyard chairs, introduce kids to mouth-igniting fare, or grab a late-night dinner.
- The breakfast crepes are IMMENSE, quite tasty and definitely can be shared. We came back for dinner and had crabcakes, alligator sausage (both very good)… – mika54, TripAdvisor
- We loved this place so much we dined there two nights in a row. I don't think you can get a bad meal at the Oceana. The crab cakes were the best my wife had ever eaten! – RaceFanIndy500, TripAdvisor
