Enjoyed lunch at this popular spot on the beach. Shared the she crab soup, the ahi tuna app and split a salmon wrap that was really good.

The food is a little pricey but considering the location is right on the beach and there aren't hardly any other restaurants around it's pretty good. The crab dip appetizer was absolutely delicious. The hush puppies were outstanding too. The environment is great. My husband got the salmon and it was seasoned well and tasted great.

I'm a local and am frequently urged by visiting friends to go to Oceanic. The view from most tables on the second level is nice and the pier tables are as well. The food used to be pretty good but has gone downhill rapidly over the past few years. Food often arrives warm, not hot and sloppily prepared. Recently ordered... More

The food and view here is spectacular. We sat on the deck/pier and there were about 10 kite board surfers and regular surfers between the pier and the jetty (south side). Several miles of coastline are visible to the north. Started our meal with the hot crab dip which is served with thin toast and had great flavor. We had... More

Oceanic has one of the best views possible on NC's amazing Atlantic coast. Located at the southern tip of Wrightsville Beach, it's an elevated vista good enough to justify a drive down to the island for good eats and a chance to soak in the ambiance. Oceanic does seafood well and its seasoned wait staff are gracious and accommodating. Light... More

We decided to try this restaurant because it was the only one in the area that's actually on the beach and was recommended to us. We arrived after 7 on a busy Saturday night with no reservation and we're told it was an hour wait, which was fine. We were pleasantly surprised when our name was called after 15 minutes.... More

Location is amazing. Drinks and appetizers were great. Server was awful and the food is average at best. The server was very careless.

We went here on a recommendation from someone who lives in the area. They sat us within 15 minutes even though they said the wait would be an hour, which was great. We sat outside with a beautiful view of the Atlantic and wonderful live music! But it all went downhill from there...it started with two people ordering the special... More

After coming here a couple of months ago and having disappointing meal... I was a little reluctant to try again. I am so glad I did... From the moment we walked into the restaurant till the time we left it was a great experience! Our server was on top of his game being friendly, helpful and quick. My food was... More

This visit to Wrightsville Beach being my 3rd, I finally went for dinner at the Oceanic Restaurant and Grill. A friend recommended it to me, and I wasn't at all disappointed. The food was outstanding. I had the crab stuffed fried shrimp with mixed veggies, and coleslaw. The shrimp was fantastic, and also the veggies and coleslaw. The view from... More
