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

Frankly, the food was fine, but unremarkable in its own right. For the price, you might hope for better... But that price also includes the views, which were very good, and the service, which was excellent, making this easily a better than average family lunch.

I truly enjoyed the view. Which cannot be missed. We went between lunch and dinner and was told pick anywhere we wanted. I wanted to sit outside, and enjoy the sun, beautiful ocean and breeze. I ordered the shrimp and grits and very yummy! The hush puppies were great too. The servers were all very kind and attentive. The bathrooms... More

The shrimp was so fresh! We had leftovers and it was so good the next day. Several family members had large salads and indicated that it was good also. I will return the next time I am in the area.

If you can get a seat out on the pier it is worth it. Just dress for the weather. The food is always excellent. Crab cakes & shrimp are my favorite.

We were there for a reunion and after a wonderful cocktail party stayed on for dinner. Friday is lobster night & they had it several ways. The lobster risotto and lobster roll were enjoyed by all. We had a buffet on Saturday that was great as well.
