Ocean’s Edge is such a beautiful venue! They have 3 rooms to choose from but we went with the Overlook because I could not pass up those views! You have a panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean for miles and miles! You cannot beat that. Greg, the owner, is fantastic to work with! The food was DELICIOUS too! His staff is very friendly and helpful. You will not regret booking this venue!Sent on 10/03/2019

A beautiful way to start a lifetime of memories!!
What a beautiful destination wedding for my son and his bride! Our initial tour of the reception halls and the private room with outstanding ocean views overlooking the restaurant was a definite YES for our rehearsal dinner and the wedding reception. The stairs approaching the serene beach made this an easy decision for the happy couple's ceremony! As parents of the groom, we were honored to put on such a lovely event for our son and his wife. We all instantly connected to the event coordinator Emily who was responsive, warm and full of suggestions, ideas and options. We also met Shane, who was equally kind and invested. Our event was small and intimate (40 people) and it was nice to have both Emily and Shane attend to our celebration as coordinator, prep staff, bartender and server! We would not hesitate to return to this lovely venue and work with Emily again for our other adult children's Big Days.Sent on 06/19/2019

Our Destination Wedding
We had a great experience working with the team at Ocean’s Edge! From having our rehearsal dinner ready, to the day of the wedding, everything was a smooth process.Sent on 06/14/2019
Emily, our wedding coordinator, was a blessing. She worked to create the day we have dreamed of. Emily made sure that everyone was on the same page for the day of the wedding! As a bride, Emily made me feel confident and comfortable the day of the wedding.
The food is AMAZING at Ocean’s Edge, and our guests loved that they could eat dinner and look at the stunning view. The view from the restaurant is amazing, and highly unique on the island.
We have established life long friendships with the staff at Ocean’s Edge, and are already planning our one year anniversary trip.
We would highly recommend Ocean’s Edge!

Emily is lovely
Once Emily took over everything went smoothly. She was always there to help out with changes and made sure we had what we needed. Wedding on the beach was set up perfectly as well.Sent on 05/18/2019
Ocean's Edge Restaurant & Event Center's reply:Thank you so much for your review, Schauren! We loved having the opportunity to work with you and felt lucky to be a part of your special day. Wishing you all the best!

Emily and Greg were helpful every step of the way!
The view from the venue instantly had us locked in from the moment we stepped off the elevator. This view, even in a brief storm, had our guests amazed. We were told many times how incredible the view was! It’s absolutely breathtaking! Emily was nothing short of amazing. To say she was there for me every step of the way is an understatement. Greg was also super helpful especially the final days leading up to the wedding. The food provided by Ocean’s’s Edge was delicious! The bartenders were really quick and cranking out drinks for our guests! The day couldn’t have gone any better!! Thank you Emily and Greg for everything!Sent on 04/22/2019

I contacted the Topsail Shrimp House for details and a visit in February 2016. All emails were answered with a swift reply and all my concerns were answered. I couldn't be more pleased and impressed with how nice the coordinator was.Sent on 03/15/2016
The venue is on the top floor with an uninterrupted view of the ocean. It's absolutely breathtaking. A proposal was quickly written up and enough time was given to me to go over with my family. Unfortunately, I'm not able to do it this year. The coordinator was very understanding and even offered a solution without being too pushy. I definitely appreciate the tact and kindness shown by her. I definitely plan on having my wedding here when the time comes because you cannot buy the comfort and professionalism given by the Topsail Shrimp House. I thank them for their time they gave me. I have told everybody about the Topsail Shrimp House because they deserve the recognition. I really cannot wait to have it here!
Any bride who is considering should just inquire and visit the restaurant. It will be worth your time.
Ocean's Edge Restaurant & Event Center's reply:Thank you for your kind words Maya! We are very happy you have enjoyed your experience with us so far and look forward to working with you on your wedding next year!

This was the perfect spot to celeb our wedding!Sent on 09/10/2017
I would book this venue every year if weddings were annual ! Haha
Jeahn was an incredible coordinator who went ABOVE AND BEYOND for our big day! She and the help of her intern, Emily, made our arbor decor and bought the decorations themselves.
Jeahn had the best personality to work with! So kind, funny, straight forward, and head strong!
Emily was such a sweet young lady, such a great help and friendly to talk with!
Will recommend to anyone and everyone!
Our wedding was FANTASTIC because of these ladies!

Everyone at Ocean's Edge was amazing. Planning a wedding from out of state has many challenges, but Jeahn was there every step of the way to make sure it was exactly what we wanted. We also had a lot of last minute changes that they were able to accommodate. I can not say enough good things about Jeahn and all of the staff there. The views of the ocean are unreal, so glad we found this hidden gem! We had the most amazing day, thank you!Sent on 05/23/2017

Dixon High School held our annual Prom at Ocean's edge this year. IT WAS PERFECT!! The staff was so helpful with planning, decorating, and facilitating the event to make sure it went off without a hitch! I couldn't have asked for a better team to work with! Jeahn and the Ocean's Edge staff were amazing!! Thank you so much and we are already looking forward to next year!! :)Sent on 05/08/2017

AMAZING!!! I could not have asked for a better location for my wedding day. The venue comes with an amazing wedding planner named Jeahn. She helped me plan the most amazing wedding ceremony on the beach and reception in the restaurant. Jeahn was so easy to work with while planning and she took care of everything on my wedding day. If you are planning a wedding you need to consider Ocean's Edge. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding! All my guest complimented me on how awesome everything was. Everyone loved the view, food, and staff! I could not have asked for anything better on my wedding day.Sent on 05/04/2017

We celebrated my husband’s military retirement at Ocean’e Edge, and I have to say that it turned out better than expected! The Event Coordinator and staff were exceptional to work with and I want to make sure that anyone that wants to plan fantastic party, for whatever reason, you would be STUPID if you did not consider or check this place out!Sent on 08/10/2017
I would like to share my experience with everyone. Jeahn was very professional, knowledgeable and was prepared to address every concept, idea or concern I had and offer many suggestions that were a great hit. They turned my vision into a reality without missing a single detail. The service provided and the food was beyond perfect. No one went hungry, I can attest to that. This is the first party that I have planned where I was able to enjoy the festivities and food versus running around making sure everyone was enjoying themselves or dealing with any problems. I want to thank everyone for the stellar service!
I would not hesitate to recommend Ocean’s Edge to others in the future for any type of party. To the staff: Working with all of you was a very good and positive experience for me. The event was truly a 5 star event. Again, Thank you.
Ocean's Edge Restaurant & Event Center's reply:It was a pleasure working with you and we love hearing that you were able to relax and enjoy the celebration without worry. Our goal is to keep planning easy and ensure that you are able to be part of the moment. We wish you both the best in retirement and the next round of adventures coming your way!

I reached out to Jeahn at Oceans Edge (formally Topsail Shrimp House) February 2016. During our initial phone conversation I just knew that I had found the right ceremony and reception venue for our wedding! Our beach wedding was on October 22, 2016. We used Oceans Edge for the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception. I seriously can not thank Jeahn enough for all she did to make our wedding amazing. Jeahn was extremely helpful and attentive to all of our questions and needs. On the big day I literally did not have to worry about one thing. Everything was flawless. The food was amazing, the new floors and updated venue was breathtaking, and the coordination by Jeahn was beyond anything I could have ever asked for. Oceans Edge will always have a special place in our hearts. Highly recommended!Sent on 04/28/2016

My wife Jill and I got married at the Shrimp House on Sept. 17, 2016 and we could not have been happier! Jeahn and her team are top notch and very accomodating! We can not saye enough great things about the location and staff! We live in Charlotte and Jeahn was super easy to work with...had great recommendations as far as food and set-up. I will tell you that the food at the wedding was as advertised and everyone was talking about how good the Prime Rib was along with the firecracker shrimp. I would HIGHLY recommend this location to anyone and Jeahn and her team are the BEST!! Jill and I can't say enough great things about this location and the team there at the Shrimp House! We will be back for our 1 year anniversary!!Sent on 11/14/2016

Our wedding was perfect with this venue! Can not say enough kind words about the coordinator and restaraunt in general! The assesibilty to the beach and available places to stay is an added bonus.

Absolutely perfect. The ceremony and venue were beautiful, the food was excellent and the service was OUTSTANDING. Jeahn, the coordinator, was knowledgeable and handled all our logistics and questions with ease and professionalism. Because of her, I didn't have to worry about a single thing the entire wedding weekend. She made me feel like everything was taken care of and she not only delivered but exceeded every expectation.Sent on 05/23/2017
The bartenders (who worked VERY hard for our group - ha!) and staff not only did their job but made us feel valued and welcome. We've gotten as many compliments on the OE staff as on the food!
It truly was a perfect weekend. Thank you Ocean's Edge!!!!

Justein · Married on 11/14/2015
We had THE BEST experience with the Topsail Shrimp House as our reception venue in November 2015. Our ceremony took place on the beach directly behind the building, which made it fantastic and convenient for our guests. Jeahn was fantastic and helped a ton not only with the reception logistics, but also with support and information about local vendors (and her experience with other events). Jeahn was extremely quick to respond to all communication prior to and following the event. She also offered her services as the conduit between the vendors and the reception area for set up and planning.Sent on 04/28/2016
I cannot say enough about our satisfaction with the staff the day of the wedding. The staff were extremely accommodating of our timeline to include set up, cocktail hour, reception, and we even ended up scrapping our after party and drinking out the Shrimp House bar! Set up and tear down was especially tricky as we did it all ourselves, and the staff was very understanding of our needs (you can see some photos on their Facebook and web pages from our beautiful, rustic navy/blush wedding!).
The table placements and linens were perfect and exactly how we discussed. The champagne service and the cake service was timely- and I can NEVER SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THE FOOD! We went with buffet style with shrimp and grits and it was a crowd pleaser- and so was the open bar, of course. We had many people in from out of town and there was not one negative comment! The only reason I am deducting a portion of a star is because, at the time of our wedding, the carpet, blinds and bathrooms were somewhat shabby and out of date. Luckily, we had our reception at sunset, so most people were staring at the ocean anyways. I will say it looks as though they’ve made some beautiful updates to the space since then!
Ocean's Edge Restaurant & Event Center's reply:Thank you Justein! We loved hosting your wedding and it was absolutely beautiful! Thank you for the kind words and for letting us use pictures of your event. We wish you both many years of happiness and hope you will visit us for an anniversary someday!
