This is a lovely spot to dine outside while enjoying a beautiful view of the ocean. Fried shrimp were outstanding, fresh, not a bit greasy and perfectly cooked. Salads were fresh and delicious. Great service.

Almost all aspects of the restaurant are classic "beach upscale", perhaps even iconic for Wrightsville Beach. Views are great, outside dining on the pier, nice bar area, and several seating areas with nice decor. We have visited in the past and found it hit and...More

Enjoyed the location. Beautiful ocean views. Would suggest it better for evening dining. I would enjoy it more if their dinner entrees had a larger selection. Only fried seafood, not healthy for me. Better drink selections are needed and the staff could be friendlier. I...More

Against our better judgement, we agreed to join friends for Thanksgiving dinner at the Oceanic. We have rated this locale 2 stars at best over the years for consistent mediocrity in food, service and value. We were 8 people for 6:30 reservations. Overhearing grumbling patrons...More

My husband and I had supper at the Oceanic with another couple. The food, the view and the service were excellent. We had a delightful time together in a very nice place. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and we will go back.

You asked "Do you take reservations on a Friday night in the summer?" I don't work there, I am only a customer. However, each time I have been at the Oceanic they have accepted reservations.
