The only thing high-end about The Oceanic are the views and the prices. We had a party of 7 (5 originally) and had called the day before to make reservations, but were informed that they do not take reservations for parties 5 or more and that we could call at least 30 minutes beforehand for call ahead seating. So we... More

We had a very enjoyable dinner on the deck our first night in Wrightsville Beach. Great fish and service. Bar was creative in making me a cocktail without vodka. Waiter was terrific as well.

We visit the Oceanic whenever we stay at Wrightsville Beach. It's one of our family traditions. You can't beat the views from this restaurant, and you can't beat the hush puppies, either. We love them! Our family gobbled up the cajun bacon-wrapped shrimp appetizer. I loved my salad with the low-fat cucumber dill dressing. Nearly everyone in our party of... More

Things started out ok -- sat on the pier, live music, had a drink, ordered hushpuppies and soup which came out quickly - both good, and friendly waitress. Downhill from there...after waiting 45 mins our waitress told us sorry for the wait but we have a big party upstairs..I'm thinking, yeah so the restaurant should plan for that... 15 mins... More

I've been dining at The Oceanic for 20 years...great place! Nothing gives me that laid back, beach feeling like hanging out at this place for a couple of hours. The Seafood never disappoints and the She-Crab Soup is to die for. Highly recommend!

The Oceanic, located at Wrightsville Beach has an outside extension that looks over the beautiful ocean at Wrightsville Beach. The menu offers an array of choices and all are very tasty. Service is great. Make sure you try their She-Crab soup!

We highly recommend the drive. The food and atmosphere was excellent. A friend of mine told us about Oceanic. While at Carolina Beach we ventured to the restaurant. It was a nice ride. It was not a hot night , so we had the pleasure of eating by the ocean. The staff was very professional and the food tasted fresh.... More
