Beautiful setting

Although the food could be less expensive, dining on the pier or eating in the bar has great views of the ocean and beach. service is good, and if you like fried seafood, this is the place to go!

Mixed feelings on this place. The view is amazing. The food was good, although a little pricey for what you get. Our waiter was nice and checked back with us often. And I mean often as we had to wait an hour for our food to arrive. Not so pleasant when you have kids along....

There was nothing to dislike. The food is super flavorful, plentiful, and a great value for your money. The servers are friendly, pleasant, knowledgeable, and have the added benefit of dining on many of the meals themselves. The made room for out larger party in the evening with a short wait. You can make reservations and I suggest this for... More

We enjoyed a late lunch here one day, eating outside. Can't beat the view! Servers were very friendly and the food was good. We both had fish and chips (cod).

I ordered a piña colada, she-crab soup, monte cristo (on brunch menu), then two mojitos. Everything was spectacular!! I'm a picky eater but the monte cristo was amazing!! She-crab soup is my favorite appetizer. Theirs is not my favorite but they did well preparing it. We had a view of the beach. Unfortunately, we couldn't get a table on the... More

We thought this would be a great dining experience but it was disappointing for us. Beautiful building and great location on the water. Our experience was not very good due to service or lack of. Restaurant was not overly full and there were tons of service persons having a pretty good time! It took 20 minutes to get two teas... More

Poor service is what we received. Waiter neglected to place order for appetizer. Food was room temperature at best. The kicker? After spending nearly $50 we wanted to take some time to walk on the beach. The manager said we can walk for ten minutes before I tow your car. Never again.

We love going to Oceanic for special occasions. The food is delicious. You can sit inside and look at the beach/ocean or you can sit outside on the deck. We've done both and they are each a wonderful experience. On Wednesday and Friday nights they have live music outside which just makes it even more enjoyable. This is a MUST... More

What a special time it was for our family to enjoy a delicious Mothers Day brunch at the Oceanic! The restaurant is right on Wrightsville Beach & with windows all around the views are spectacular. You can be on any of the 3 floors & know you will have a panorama. Our waitress was sharp, friendly, attentive, & professional. We... More
