I like this place it is really nice. It is right off Wrightsville beach and is in a beautiful location. The prices are reasonable and the food is good. I only got to go here once and it is a nice place to go.

After previous three very happy visits to the Oceanic, my wife and I were looking forward to a good seafood lunch despite the 2 hour drive from Raleigh. We should have stayed home.We were seated inside and waited 10 minutes for menus and water. When...More

Never been here for lunch before (been to dinner several times). It was a good choice (even though I like dinner menu better). I tried the crab melt and it was good. Service was excellent. Great view of the beach even with indoor seating.

Probably deserves more of a 3.5. While service was timely and met our needs our particular server lacked any personality. Food was well cooked and served hot. Very good and what can be expected at most beach restaurants. We both had mixed drinks before dinner....More

My favourite restaurant is located on the beach with pier drinks & dining with live music, at times. Inside dining downstairs provides a casual atmosphere for great food & drinks. Inside dining upstairs is more elegant & romantic with gorgeous views of the beach from...More

Seriously reconsider this one if you are hoping for fresh or good. It would be a great place to sit and have a drink because the view is lovely but the food is really bad. I had crab stuffed shrimp. The shrimp were weak and...More

Hmmm, I'm not really sure. I would say its a low probability, but they definitely show up sometimes. Sorry I couldn't be more help! Cheers - Tyler

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.
