5 star view and service!!

Great fish, great views on the pier. You can watch the surfers and enjoy a cocktail with the wind blowing through your hair. The wait staff is so young but just excellent...a nice surprise. The homemade blue cheese dressing is to die for.

The place was outstanding, from the food to the service to the cleanliness! We asked to be seated outside on the pier, it was a beautiful scenic spot, with the sound of the ocean waves hitting the shore it couldn't be any better! They had a 3 piece band playing that night, the music selection was perfect for the setting... More

On any trip to Wrightsville we make a point to eat at the Oceanic. Great food - and excellent value. Can't beat the view either.

We were staying at the blockade runner and the hotel recommended the oceanic for dining, as it was close by. Our server, Claire, was very nice and attentive. We started with a crab dip, which exceeded our expectations. I ordered the salmon salad, which was absolutely delectable. The view was outstanding to say the least. We will definitely be returning.

My wife and I were drawn to the view and atmosphere of Oceanic. Seating outside on their deck or better yet on their pier provides a great view and keeps you in beach/vacation mode. That's where the appeal of Oceanic ended for us. The waitstaff was young and acted it. The waiter was a little delayed getting to our table... More

Had a lunch and an evening meal at this top restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed both. Wonderful setting and views. Friendly attentive staff. Varied menu with a strong seafood emphasis. Worth the journey from the UK.

A few friends and I decided to end our summer with a day at the beach and dinner at the Oceanic. I have been to this restaurant several times in the past. I have to say that while our service was quite good, the food was just okay. My friends had a dish that included rice, which had definitely been... More

Ate here twice on our vacation: One lunch for a table of 8 and one dinner for a table of a different set of 8 relatives (we were having a large family reunion in houses rented nearby!) Both experiences brought us great views of the ocean, sitting out on the pier (windy at lunch time! yikes--hold on to your napkins!)... More

Ate there twice on my beach trip, nice place, good food, need to work on appearance ... servers wearing dirty uniforms/aprons ... bar smells like stale beer/old wine ... managers should keep up cleanliness .... Probably will eat there again when in the area ...

If you are in the Wilmington, NC, area, you HAVE to visit the Oceanic one night. It's right on the beach, so the views are beautiful! I've been with just adults and with kids, and it was great either way. The connecting pier allows you to walk out and see the ocean even more, and there is access right to... More
