Our Story

In 1990, we opened our doors to welcome guests near and far to the Oceanic. But our history goes further back than that. We have deep roots dating back to 1939 when our Crystal Pier was originally built and when Wrightsville Beach started to become a thriving destination for locals, families and friends out to the beach. We have become a special place for celebrations, drinks on the water, or your favorite spot on the beach for over 80 years, and the introduction to our restaurant has only made those experiences more special.
