Enjoyed a cocktail on the pier. So relaxing with epic views. After a few drinks we headed to the outside dining area and enjoyed some delicious apps. Service was terrific. Made a great date night!

We visited this restaurant while staying in the area. The seafood was fresh and great. Our waiter was very knowledgeable with the fresh catches and his recommendations were spot on. Great little establishment. Good menu and plenty of bar choices. Would visit again.

On the way back to Wrightsville Beach after a visit to the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, we stopped at the Ocean Grill to take in the view of Carolina Beach from the second story dining room. Everything was perfect: interior decor was simple and appealing, food was exceptional, service was top notch. It was the best meal we had... More

We have been here a number of times over the past two years. For inside dining, the upstairs offers a nice view. Service can be “hit or miss” and the food is average although we have had some peel and eat shrimp that were quite tasty. Personally, I think that some items are priced a bit too high. Tiki bar...

We discovered this restaurant last year and it quickly became our favorite! The food is very good, the prices are very reasonable and having an oceanfront view is the best! Our menu favorites are the Mahi Tacos (blackened) and the local catch sandwich. We saw several people order the Ocean Grill Burger and it looked really tasty! The portions are... More

This is a favorite spot to sit over the beach on a pier, listen to music and drink. Great atmosphere and fun crowd.

We were handed the lunch menu at 445 but charged the dinner menu price when we got the ticket? Food was ok crab legs were the best they weren't over cooked but you only get 1 1/2 clusters so don't expect a lot. Nachos were very dry and fried oysters weren't done enough.. Wings were pretty good and so were... More

We are back again a year later and still Love, Love, LOVE this place! There is a main restaurant with several options for dining (fully air conditioned with good views upstairs, halfway outside/under fans downstairs, or fully outside on the pier. The tiki bar itself is at the end of the pier (which ends where the waves hit the sand).... More

We loved the tiki bar outside, with very cold drinks and sandwiches to eat as your overlooking the ocean. Inside ocean grill is nicely decorated and clean, food was fine. But for the experience of the only beach restaurant, Eat at the Tiki bar!! It's a must:)

We have been coming to CB for many years and this was not our first experience eating at the Ocean Grill & Tiki Bar, however it's been a few years since our last visit and the menu has changed. The menu seemed quite a bit smaller and our waiter had trouble relaying the specials. Most of the fresh catch fish... More
