Oceanic at Pompano Pier offers more than picturesque dining on the beach. They have refreshing cocktails and a menu that will keep people coming back for more. The beachy décor and furnishings are spot on and give you the feeling that you are at a celebrity hot spot, with everyone dressed to the nine.
Cocktails were delivered to the table quickly. The first thing that caught our attention was the eco-friendly, biodegradable straws. The straws were made of straw/hay and didn’t break down like our eco-friendly paper straws. What a brilliant idea of using straw as straws.
Being gluten-free for the past 9 years, we were overjoyed that our server was knowledgeable about the menu and available options. That alone makes eating out a treat. For starters we had a shared plate of horseradish maple brussels sprouts. They were a hit at our table of six and we cleaned the plate.
After placing our orders, we sat back and took in the beautiful view of the ocean and pier. The salty air and cool ocean breeze made sitting outside both relaxing and comfortable.
Scott and I shared a plate of the gluten-free crab cake duo. The menu description reads - jumbo lump crab, creole mustard aioli, baby arugula, roasted corn, green garbanzos, sunflower sprouts with cider agave vinaigrette. Our palates were satisfied, and we agreed it was one of the best gluten-free crab cakes we’ve had.
Our friends had the tuna tataki, cashew crunch chicken salad, grilled cauliflower steak and sea salt brined roasted chicken. They all enjoyed their meals, but let’s face it – they also had great company. Hahaha.
After dining, we explored to check out the rest of the restaurant. The flow of the beautiful décor continued upstairs to the event room and bar. This is a perfect spot for a wedding reception or other large event.
Oceanic at Pompano Pier is a beautiful addition to Pompano Beach, and I look forward to returning soon. Speaking of returning, keep your eyes peeled for details for our Girls Night Out event that will be held here on March 3, 2020. You won’t want to miss it.
Besides traveling, I enjoy spending time with our two amazing dogs, Brady the Bichon and Buddy the Golden. They are both 14 years old and are obsessed with raw carrots.
Heads up - we will be launching our first event on December 10th. I’m looking for artists and vendor booths, raffle prizes and swag from local companies, venues available to host and non-profits looking for support. Subscribe to our blog and like us on Facebook for our future events, raffles, contests and more.
You don't have to be a housewife to attend and we welcome all seasons of women. Many of us aren’t originally from here. Let’s get together and help make a difference in our community. Walking into a venue alone and not knowing anyone can be intimidating. I’ll be watching for you, so walk in and rest assured you’ll see me, plus meet lots of friendly faces that you’ll soon call friends.
Hi there! I am Angel and live a happy life in Pompano Beach with my wonderful husband, Scott, and our two dogs, Brady and Buddy.
I love to travel, the color blue, Netflix binges, Tito’s and gluten-free chocolate raspberry cake. I also have a serious obsession with pictures!
In addition to Housewives in the City, I am a real estate and portrait photographer. I basically make people and things look pretty.
Meeting new friends, making a difference for non-profits and helping businesses grow are my passions. And that is what we get to do at our monthly girls’ nights out!
I can’t wait to meet you. All women are welcome, and we are going to have a ton of fun!
