This restaurant has its own pier and even has a bar on it mid-pier! Pretty awesome. Dinner with a view outdoors or inside with a second level that has windows all around allowing for a great view in days where it may be too cold...More

Very casual setting. Food was ok. Steak was not cooked as ordered and green beans were under cooked. Beautiful setting to watch the sunset and grab a few drinks.

The view is great for watching the goings on at the beach, but for me that was the only redeeming thing about the place. Service was fine but nothing special. The décor was dated. The food was only mediocre and way overpriced. The hush puppies...More

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.
