Good food, great location and a lot of beach feel. But, it is quite expensive for the amount of food you get. We still try to go once a visit because of the fun location.

Food is always very good, but I have encountered some gaps in food & service due crowds and possibly some under staffing. Some food items on the menu have been out and due to the larger crowds some service challenges were obvious.

We sat outdoors for lunch on the shaded deck, where we were served by a cheerful waiter who didn't seem the least bit rattled by the crowds that soon began pouring in to occupy every table. The food has always been good, but this time...More

They do not take reservations for small parties, but they will allow you to call in 30 minutes and put yourself on the waiting list. The food is delicious. There were four in our party. We got crab dip which was scrumptious. WE each ordered...More

Well, it all started 55 years ago for me, when this was just Crystal Pier and used only for fishing pretty much by the locals. One side had the fishing tackle and gear and the other a lunch counter that to this day is still...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.

Can you order off of the regular lunch menu during "brunch" hours on Sunday? Or are you limited to the Brunch menu on Sundays?
