We were there off season which was great. The food and the service was wonderful. The views of the beach were very enjoyable. Out server was very helpful in giving us some ideas of things to do in the area. Will come back again on our next visit.

I loved how the restaurant is on the beach because it creates a peaceful environment to enjoy a nice meal. The food presentation was pretty, but the food was OK. I think it could use way more flavor/seasoning, but other than that it's a nice place!

We live in SE Raleigh and try to get to The Oceanic at Wrightsville Beach several times a year. We love the Crab Cakes, She Crab Soup, Hot Crab Dip and their hush puppies. We traditionally have a pina colada and they make them delicious. Even though the food is great the location is even better. We sat outside today... More

Though there was quite a wait on a Saturday night, the atmosphere was nice, so it wasn't too bad. The food was typical beach food but good , and there was plenty of it. I was surprised how quickly everything came out considering the crowd.

We have been coming of rover 25 yrs to this area and in particular this restaurant, was actually engaged here, but it's not the same sadly. We stay within walking distance so that is nice, but they do not take reservations unless it's a large party so you could wait anywhere from 30mins to 2 hrs no joke, and they... More

It was nice in Feburary, so we did a beach/park day. We started at Oceanic for lunch. It has wonderful views. I prefer not to sit on the pier, b/c it seems like it is always windy, but the upstairs is great, you can see Masonboro Island. I had basic Mahi sandwich with asparagus to replace the fries, and it... More

THEY JUST DON'T CARE! They have so much tourist business, that they don't care about the locals. Many of the customers there today were locals. They were not prepared for a crowd as the weather was gorgeous. Long waits, many vacant tables, and just a hohum attitude. I ordered the tuna entree and it took them about 40 minutes to... More

We started out with the hot crab dip which is the best! My friend and I split the blackened mahi mahi entree and ordered an extra salad. Both were delicious! I recommend the dill cucumber dressing for the salad which is homemade. This restaurant is located on the beach and allows for great views of the ocean. We had great... More

I went here for a business lunch when travelling. If it had been a nice day the views would have been incredible. The hush puppies were the best I have tasted. Main courses were mixed in terms of size. Some were huge, others quite small. Quality was very high though. The key lime pie was outstanding.
