February is the depth of the off-season for the Outer Banks so we were happy to find a place to eat that was open all year and offered lots of selection. A high recommend for the seafood nachos. And the attentive service was perfect.

It was open in February one of the only ones. The nachos were delish but huge! I got the blackened shrimp and scallops. It was very good and so was the bar. The waitress Connie was very helpful.

We visited during the off-season in early 2017. Not many places were open, but we were thrilled to find Oceana's. We ate there 3 times in a week and had great food at reasonable prices every time. We really didn't even look elsewhere after our first meal there. The "grillers" are amazing. Huge tortillas smothered with cheese and a border... More

My wife and I dined there while on vacation. The seafood was tremendous, and the servers were very hospitable. Reasonable prices and great food make this a place we will definitely eat at again next time we're in the area!

It's so nice to have some healthy menu options in the Buxton/Avon area. January is a tough time to find an open restaurant in this area. Oceana's was not only open but was delicious! Old Bay potato chips are homemade, warm when served, and absolutely delighted! (Ok, they were not healthy!) we also had grilled mahi bites as an appetizer.... More

I have visited this restaurant often but this time I really put it to the test. 5 PM New Year Eve and Oceana's was one of two restaurants open in Avon. Even at 5 PM the restaurant was full with a waiting line, seating was a 25 minute wait. Since our choices were limited we had a drink at the... More

It was a girls weekend and 5 of us had lunch here. We were so glad we did; all of us loved our meal. We needed to go boxes,, there was so much left over. It was delicious, I would definitely go again! We went back for dessert to go after we were done shopping.
