We used Trip advisor to find this little gem in the heart of Avon. Our vacation was for a full week and we ate breakfast here 3 times, it made that big of an impression! Everything is made to order so they can cater to your needs if you need something tweaked. They offer vegetarian dishes as well but you... More

We recently ate here and was pleasantly surprised. It was quite busy and there is not a lot of seating. Our order came pretty quick and was good. Our table had grilled salmon, sesame crusted tuna, and past with scallops and Mahi. They were all very good. We would come here again.

Called ahead to make sure they had room. When we arrived they had a table waiting for us. Wait staff were efficient and friendly. Food was fabulous. The Belgian waffles were simply delicious. Will definitely go back

We enjoyed dinner at Oceana's on our most recent trip to the OBX. Our server suggested the sesame tuna appetizer and it was sooo good! It was prepared perfectly and tasted great. We also had a grilled mahi entree for dinner that was seasoned just right and tasted very fresh. The only (small) complaint would be that the sweet potato... More

We've always had a great meal here, and we tend to go allot in the winter time (it's usually very busy in season) the food is very good, people very friendly. Their daily specials are always a big hit, especially taco night Tuesday.

Stopped here two days last week for a breakfast and a lunch. Few tables in a small dining area. Nice size bar area in a separate room. Service is excellent! Very friendly and efficient staff. Breakfast omelets are a house specialty and there are several to chose from. In the evening, they offer a great selection of steamed seafood items... More

We were a party of 8 and seated quickly. Great service, personable server. Food reasonably timed. Everyone's order was cooked to perfection, hot and tasty. We all definitely want to visit them again this week.

We love Oceana's. The food is great, has a big menu with a variety. Appetizers are awesome 👍 wings are great too! We always get wings when we come. Nachos are HUGE. The staff is great, hard working, and friendly. My family and I are relatively close with the bartender (Julie). She is GREAT! Been working here for years. It... More

I've never had a bad experience with this place before. Love the fried pickles! They always accommodate my take out orders.

We arrived shortly after the dinner opening. My suggestion is to arrive early. We were fortunate that our wait was about five minutes. Had we arrived at few minutes later, we would've faced a long wait because the restaurant is fairly small. Not to mention, they had a prime rib special for $12.99. One member of our party ordered the... More
