Great View of The Ocean, Very Nice Staff and Good Food Too!

There is a great view of the ocean from the outside and/or inside location right here on the beach. Yes, the prices are not cheap, but, priced accordingly to the area and you must consider the great view of the beach and ocean, which is priceless! The staff was very nice, courteous and conducted... read more

Every seat is great for watching waves. A bit loud with a full restaurant. Crab dip & hush puppies are a must order. Yum. Husband had stuffed shrimp & I had the Sweet & Spicy BBQ Salmon... delicious. Servers were fantastic. One in particular, Reese, noticed I looked at my dish oddly... he came over to the table and asked... More

The menu was limited, the views were mediocre, the food was disgusting and overpriced. Their confetti rice, which is the only side they offer, tasted like an overcooked, frozen variety. The only nice thing was the walk out on the pier afterwards.

The view to the beach made us glad we went here, and the food was better than OK. Hadn't had she crab soup for a while, and this one had lots of crab flavor. A fried oyster basket was about what you'd expect, although the oysters themselves were nice and plump. Bacon-wrapped shrimp was better than anticipated; the thin slices... More

We asked for outdoor seating and the views were awesome. It was very relaxing. However, the food was good but pricey for the amount you got. We paid $11 for shrimp cocktail that only had four pieces of shrimp on it... The service was just okay. Probably will not be back.

The Atlantic Ocean and Beach tight out the window. A perfect place to sit and watch. Food is mediocre and I would love to say the view makes up for it. Sorry. After lunch take a walk on the beach and you will feel better. It was an average experience. Maybe I need to go back?

The waiter was very professional, attentive with drinks. When my son's drink went dry, he was immediately given another one without asking. They special ordered my fish. Basically putting a signature sauce of theirs on another kind of fish. No problems there. We all loved our meals and the portions were rather large.You can sit out on the pier or... More

We chose Oceanic Restaurant and Grill for dinner Friday evening. It was chilly outside that night so we chose to have dinner inside of the restaurant. We has to wait about twenty minutes, not bad at all for a Friday night. We spent a little time on the pier while we waited, we were able to capture some great photos... More

View was great. Restaurant loud. Food seemed either pretentious or frozen or both. Disappointed, felt sick all day after :(

Food prices are high. You pay for the ocean front view which is lovely. Food is just okay. Service was good.
