My first visit but I'll be back. Fantastic shrimp tacos, friendly bartender, unbeatable oceanfront view. I could not ask for better. The only bad part was trying to choose one item from the menu.

Food was average but still pricey. Would compare it to a Joes Crab Shack style of restaurant. Nothing special about the menu or the ambiance, just run of he mill tourist restaurant. Calamari was good!

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.
