Every Friday, I feature a fun and budget-friendly option in the Greater Boston area. The “Feature Friday” is typically mentioned on the Cheap Eats list, Free Things to Do in Boston, or Discount Attractions. However, there’s so much budget-friendly ideas on my pages, I thought it would be fun to feature something budget-friendly and different each week. Also, each Feature Friday is something I have personal experience with or took advantage of recently! Enjoy!
On Tuesday night, I wanted to grab a quick dinner before heading to a Boston Bloggers meetup at Highball Lounge! I wanted something fairly close by and something cheap too!
I decided to check out the Happy Hour at Oceanaire in the Financial District. Happy Hour is from 4-7pm Monday-Friday and 9pm-close Monday-Thursdays and 8pm-close on Sundays at the bar. The happy hour menu has items starting at $5 from fish tacos, shrimp and chips, and much more.
I was a little nervous after I arrived and checked out the bar menu because the prices were higher than the prices I found online by a few dollars. However, the online happy hour prices were reflected in my final bill, which was a nice! Whew.
I ordered Shrimp & Chips ($5) and wine ($9) and my husband ordered Fish & Chips ($5) and a bottled beer ($6). The food was good, although it took forever to arrive. The french fries were delicious and crispy, which was good because they seemed never ending compared to the two pieces of fish and three pieces of shrimp we each got. But for $5 and an easy dinner I didn’t have to cook at home, I really can’t complain.
Have you been to the happy hour at Oceanaire before?
