It has been quite a few years since we dined at the Oceanic. The new pier is very nice, even if it's relatively short. We sat outside in a really stiff breeze, but it was still enjoyable, being able to look out over the beach & ocean. Good weather days are obviously better for pier dining. The service was good,...

So, like most of these other reviews already have said, you already know by now that the view here is superb! We sat on the 2nd floor overlooking the ocean.. Breathtaking at dinnertime! But that's about all they've got going for them! We ate here 5 years ago when they were still working on the pier. We waited an eternity... More

Best place to eat with a view of the ocean and a great pier for a walk after dinner. Good food, friendly service, and can handle a crowd. Parking is a little challenging, but all things considered the best place on Wrightsville Beach to eat.

This restaurant has great ambiance but the food and service don't measure up. The oysters were all batter and the steamed broccoli was cold. Brought out dregs of hush puppies and promised a fresh batch which never came. Food seemed very overpriced for what you got. I believe they were much better in past but definitely going down. Will not... More

This is a large restaurant with a small parking lot. The views are nice and the food is your typical beach restaurant fare but well done. The manager made a point to go around and chat with all the diners.

That's all I can say. Because my mother said if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. Suffice it to say that after dinner there were many trips my husband and I had to the restroom.

Ugh. After dozens of trips here I can say....this is not great food. Yeah, the view and the total experience is very beachy and pleasant. The lunch menu is reasonably priced but dinner prices are an insult. And they have this habit of covering everything with glop. No other way to describe it. Glop. Unnecessary glop. Give me a filet...

My husband and I were visiting his family in whiteville nc about an hour from the oceanic. Moments ago, we had driven an hour before heading back to Georgia to eat at the oceanic and get a picture at the ocean. After eating upstairs with about 35 other patrons, and after spending over $50 we wanted to get a picture... More
