Good view and pier dining

Though it was late in the evening, staff accommodated us for drinks, appetizers, dinner, and coffee. The server was very attentive without being annoying. We appreciated the ample staff here to serve and clear food while waiters attend to other tables. The skewered shrimp (bacon wrapped) bbq had... read more

Stopped here while on vacation with my brother-in-law and his wife. Location is excellent....service and food were excellent. My wife and I both had the fish and chips and it was excellent...not greasy at all and very tasty. WIne and beer were a little pricey....key lime pie for desert was excellent. Would definitely return.

The Oceanic is a landmark restaurant on Wrightsville Beach with superb outdoor dining and pier to enjoy a stroll. The indoor dining is also good. Many groups hold meting and luncheons upstairs.Night time dining/drinking is best here. The menu is substantial. The food preparation is what one would expect from a superbly located restaurant that knows the beach and the... More

This place is right on the beach so one would expect very fresh seafood. I ordered the shrimp platter and from the first bite knew it was frozen, my wife ordered chicken (hates seafood), and what was placed before her even someone who was lost at sea for a month wouldn't touch.

Recommended by staff at the a Holiday Inn Resort. 2 combos platters and a kids meal for under $55! Biggest portions we've been served all week! I ordered shrimp and flounder and wasn't crazy about the flounder(fried w/ skin intact) but had more than enough shrimp to eat. Server came and took flounder, and brought back an additional basket of... More

Ate dinner on July 21, 2015 with a friend. First problem was that I have a gluten allergy and told the server this information. Ordered a salad that came with croutons. Hello...I just said I had a gluten allergy. He took my plate and returned so fast that I'm positive that him or someone else just picked off the croutons... More

Food was pretty good, mediocre filet. Service was good. Only complaint is that there is only (1) toilet for women on the 1st floor, and (1) toiled on the 2nd floor. If you are there for an entire evening - the lines can get very long.

The Oceanic has been one of our favorite restaurants at Wrightsville Beach -- until tonight. We had to park the better part of a mile from the restaurant. Not a problem -- parking is difficult in this area. We had to wait an hour for a table for five. Not a problem -- it was a Friday night in peak... More

We go to the Oceanic every time we are in Wrightsville Beach. Sit on the dock and watch the water while enjoying your food. The menu is varied and the food is good, but not great. The prices are reasonable. You are really there for the view.

We ate dinner here during a terrific storm, so we had to eat inside. Ask to be seated at a window where you can see the ocean! Fabulous food and you must try the key lime pie! If you like salmon and shrimp, they have a dish just for you!
