Strumming on the Patio

Bluewater offers delicious fare like Seared Scallop Scampi, an NC-Style Calabash Platter and NY Strip Streak that makes for a perfect feast on the water.


Beach Bops

Stay close to the beach while you enjoy cocktails, eats and live music with the Oceanic Summer Music Series every Thursday and Sunday through Sept. 30. Wrightsville Beach’s only oceanfront standalone restaurant, Oceanic boasts 475 feet of covered al fresco dining space on its pier, where you can smell the salt in the breeze and catch a striking view of the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy drinks with your coastal cuisine set to the peaceful melodies from local bands.
