Went last min after getting a text about their $18.99 unlimited oyster special. Sounded too good to pass up. Got there and we were told you can get steamed or raw and you can switch up with each subsequent order if you want. First order they bring you 12, but after that they bring you six. Well, the oysters were... More

Great view. Delightful and yummy dinner of scallops over "smashed" (puréed cauliflower, bacon bits, broccolini = better than the listed description in the menu. Warmth from Mgr and great attentive but not overbearing service. Recommended to me by a volunteer at the local museum. Will certainly be back on my next Wilmington visit!

Just wanted to say that Erin, our server, was beyond excellent when it comes to customer service. I'd recommend this place a million times over.

Oceanic is a great restaurant right on the ocean at Wrightsville Beach. They have your classic fried shrimp, flounder and oysters as well as more unique dishes such as stuffed shrimp served with orzo and asparagus. The prices are reasonable for the quality ($20 ish per entree).

I have tried several dishes from here and they were all very well prepared and tasty. Their specials offer a unique twist to an already creative (yet not too crazy) menu. The views of the pei and beach are unmatched and the staff always takes very good care of me.

The menu selection and food are good, but the view and experience eating out on the beach on the large private pier is absolutely awesome. If nothing else, drinks and appetizers out over the water on a nice day makes Oceanic worth a visit.

If you are looking for a place to have a wonderful lunch go to the Oceanic. My girlfirend took me to this restaurant this past summer. It was awesome, we sat on the outdoor patio and had our lunch. We both had the grilled salmon it was amazing. WE enjoyed the ocean while we ate. If you don't mind the... More

While the food is fine it's the view that brings me back to the Oceanic. Crab dip is very good, She Crab soup is also good.
