Good place to end our outer banks vacation. Fast service and good food! Yummy chicken alfredo! We went for dinner and didn't pay a fortune!

Food is good, atmosphere is pleasant but their prices are constantly going up, primarily the booze....8-10 bucks for a mixed drink is a little steep. Used to go there 5-6 times during a 2 week stay but we are looking for other options

Very small dining area, which is quite deceiving from the outside. The food was great, but the service was questionable, even with plenty of employees and not a lot of tables.

If your looking for a quick bite before heading out for the day this is good. Not a wow breakfast but the service was quick. The eggs Benny sauce tasted like mayo and not a true bernaise sauce. Other than that good!

We visited this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews. We tried a couple times but they were always packed. We went about 4:30 and it was still pretty busy. The restaurant was small...only about 10 tables but some held up to 6 or 7 people. The...More

Our campground (Ocean Waves) recommended Oceana's after we had a disappointing experience with another highly rated restaurant. We weren't disappointed this time. My husband finally got the fresh flounder he'd been craving - a large portion of really fresh fish. I am more of a...More
