Extremely crowded so get there early on a weekend. Sitting at the bar was a bust. My 2 friends and I were passed up numerous times and had to actually flag down a bartender who appeared to be deliberately ignoring us. I.E: standing right in front of us and asking others what they wanted to drink, even though they clearly... More

When we leave NJ and drive to the Wilmington, NC area, one of our favorite places to dine is at the Oceanic. Prices are not cheap, but the seafood quality is never lacking. Do not miss the she-crab soup or the crab dip. If you do, you are cheating yourself. Our meal choices were the shrimp n grits, the roasted... More

we have developed a tradition of driving two hours and visiting here every winter. Such a nice spot to eat and look out at the ocean on a sunny day. You almost forget how cold it is outside! We had the she crab soup, very tasty. We also had the shrimp basket. Shrimp is always fresh and fried perfectly. Came... More

Great view, VERY average food. I have been going to Wrightsville Beach for years. It's gradually going downhill. I won't go back unless it's just for a drink and the view.

The view of the ocean is great and good service. A walk on the pier is fun. Try the seafood chowder.

My family and I have enjoyed Oceanic several times in the past years we have vacationed at WB. The staff has been very friendly and always guided us to the best selections of the menu. I especially enjoy the brunch they have on Sunday's although this past trip we left on Saturday I'm assuming they still offer it. The oysters... More

Went to the Oceanic while in Wilmington on business. Everything about the restaurant was nice -- good food, good service, but not as good as the fairly high prices would indicate. For example, while the fish was fresh, none of it was local. There are plenty of fisheries in Wilmington, and they don't need to get their fish from the... More

So glad we went here on a dreary November morning at the beach. First we walked on the restaurants's new pier and watched the fishermen. In the restaurant we sat on the upper floor enjoying the panoramic views and suddenly it felt like a sunny day. Enjoyed the delicious brunch with French toast and excellent orange juice. Husband had the... More
