We stayed at the Holiday Inn for a staycation since we wanted to be at the beach for the weekend without having to deal with traffic and parking. We got to the hotel on Saturday during lunch time and decided to eat at Oceans. We wanted to sit outside since it was the perfect temperature outside. I ordered the chicken... More

Outdoor dining with a great view of the ocean and pool. We like it b/c you get great service, nice view, shade from the sun, convenient to the pool, and when you are finished eating just walk down the steps back to your chair, relax and enjoy the pool/beach. Yes it is a bit pricey but you are paying for... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn and this restaurant was conveniently located on site. We had the breakfast buffet here 3 times. It was all great, including the omelette station. I wish they would have French toast and biscuits and gravy every day, though. They were delicious! Those seem to be rotating items. Also, we had dinner here one night.... More

Wanted a large seafood selection and Oceans sufficed. Not a romantic restaurant at all. Music in bar area reverberated throughout. Friendly staff. Menu sounded good but actual food was fair. Food came out not piping hot. Baked potato was hard inside. Dessert came out at nuclear temperature. The staff was so friendly that it is hard to complain, but not... More

This is our third time at the Holiday Inn Wrightsville Beach and the hotel restaurant, Oceans, never disappoints. From the breakfast buffet to lunch and dinner, I did not have one meal that wasn't great. Monkey bread on the breakfast buffet? YUM!! The grilled chicken sandwich with basil aioli and avocado for lunch with fresh fruit. YUM! The flank steak... More

At the Holiday Inn Resort, my family enjoyed a flavorful meal at a reasonable price. Calimari, stuffed flounder and seared sea scallops were all prepared very nice. Even the pizza was quite good. Call ahead if you want to dine outside on the patio for the full experience.

Located in the Holiday Inn Resort on the beach in Wrightsville Beach NC. Nice facility, lots of indoor and outdoor dining, great for families, couples or individuals. My wife ordered the Cuban sandwich, I had the Caesar Salad with grilled chicken. Both were very good. Our server Abby also did a very good job for us. Much better than your... More

This should have a totally different name. It is sooo good, you'll want to smack the person sitting next to you when you eat it.

We ate here for three breakfasts and two dinners during our stay at the Holiday Inn. The food was great, the view was awesome, and the service was good. The evening hostess was wonderful. You can eat indoors or inside. The birds tend to be a nuisance outside, especially in the morning. My husband had the hamburger twice. He said... More
