“Delicious food and great view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2011

We ate at this restaurant on the beach this past weekend. It was a little too cold to sit outside, but we had a lovely view from our hightop table by the window. This is a casual oceanside restaurant.. Our server was very friendly. We decided to order several appetizers to share. The bacon wrapped shrimp was delish, as was the crab cake. The yellowfin tuna was good, although small serving for the price.
If you are in the mood for a frozen drink and like kahlua and chocolate, get the specialty drink (don't remember the name, but its the only one with those ingredients..made with ice cream...yum!)
I would definitely eat here again if I am in the area!

“What a great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2011

Great food! So good we came back next day while on vacation and we were only there for 2 days while touring the Crystal Coast. Crab dip good (and we are from MD!). Dinner first night was chipolte salmon (recommended by the best waiter we had on our entire vacation thanks Garret!) Good portion great flavor and cooked as salmon should be cooked. I had the fried shrimp and fries. Very tasty. The next night we returned and of course requested the same waiter. He reccommended the Pecan encrusted chicken for me and my husband had fried oysters and a salad. Absolutely fantastic. For the chicken, get the sauce on the side. I wish they bottled that stuff! What makes this restaurant the good experience is the service and knowledge of the staff of the menu and area.

“Amazing food with an amazing view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

The quality of the food is absolutely 5 star. From the preparation, to it's delivery, and lastly to it's taste, the oceanic meets every measure. To this end, it is slightly pricey, but well worth it if you are in the Wilmington area.

“Great restaurant with wonderful view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

I have been coming to the Oceanic Restaurant for over 7 years and absolutely love the food, service and view! You can sit outside and dine on the pier during the summer or sit inside the wonderful dining room with a view of the Atlantic ocean just outside. The food is very good and the wait staff very attentive. Highly recommended!

“Great service, great food, a little pricey but worth it for special occasions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

We had visted this resturant before on other special occasions, but when our daughter gradutated from college in Wilmington, NC this was the resturant she chose for her
graduation party. They gave us excellent service, oceanfront tables and great food selections. With our large family, this is not somewhere we can eat regularly, but for a special occasion this is a great place.
