This is my favorite place to go in Wrightsville Beach. The food, service and view are excellent. I've never had to wait long for a table and never been disappointed. It's nice to sit in the Adirondack chairs with a cocktail as well.

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.
