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.

What a delight. The service was incredible... friendly and accomodating. We sat outside on the pier with a great view of the ocean. The food was delicious. Try the crab dip. Yummy. Bartender makes great drinks. Highly recommended. They also offer indoor seating on 2 floors.

I ate here with a late group this month. Our service was excellent. Of course, the view is amazing. The food was average, and came with the obligatory tourist pricing. Additionally, the carpet didn't seem very clean when I went. Even though the food was just better-than-average and slightly over-priced as well, the excellent service and the view made me... More

Oceanic sits in part on a long pier overlooking the beach and ocean. The day we were they it was 75 degrees and the beach was packed with college kids. It's a large restaurant with two levels in addition to the outside pier seating. Our server Christina, was very pleasant and helpful. The food was quite good, but the star... More
