    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!! :)

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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!!

    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. Our wedding planning took place with construction/ upgrades taking place and I always got a quick response. The food is delicious. I would do it again with this venue a million times!

    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.
    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!!!!

    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.
    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!

    My advice is to book this venue. Jeahn was very professional and had to make some changes on the fly due to last minute changes we made. The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. Also the staff running the open bar were so nice and friendly. Overall it was a great experience and we would not change anything.

    The day of our wedding everything went great! The food was awesome and bar tenders/servers were excellent. I would caution that couples choosing this venue make sure you know exactly what is or is not allowed for decorations as we had a temporary hiccup in that department! Other than that tiny speed bump in the planning process I would highly recommend the venue simply for the breathtaking view and great team there!

    My wife and I renewed our vows on the lovely Topsail Island in May 2015. We had a nice spring day for our brief ceremony. The reception at Topsail Shrimp House was spectacular! We celebrated with friends and family at the top of the resort facility overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Jeahn managed the event flawlessly, anticipating our every need and guided us through the preparation process with just the right amount of knowledgeable suggestions. She really made an effort to understand who we were and what we wanted- the end result was perfection! The reception was spectacular and exactly what we had dreamed of it being! The staff, facility, food, cocktails, and service were absolutely fitting for the fantastic location for our special day! It was a day that we, and all of our guests, will remember forever!

    The venue is BEAUTIFUL! I couldn't have found a better setting both for the beach ceremony and the reception. The food was amazing. My only complaints would be the communication.organization and overbooking. I would send e-mails to Jeahn, the coordinator and not always get a response unless I sent a 2nd email. She asked me to send her a seating chart, I did and labeled how many people and highchairs were needed at each table and she never looked at it. I had to tell those working that they were missing and where they went 20 mins before walking down the aisle. There were 2 other weddings booked for the same day around the same time and Jeahn couldn't keep each party straight, she kept getting confused with the way I wanted things done. As a result she sent the wrong people down the aisle at the wrong time, which messed up the the DJ and the song's he was supposed to play for the parents.

    We did not have a good experience with our wedding or reception at this venue. The view is absolutely georgeous and the food tasted great; however, not much else met our expectations. There were items on the contract that the venue did not perform, we were required to pay for a wedding coordinator whom lacked professionalism and organizational skills. She had poor communication, asked us the same questions multiple times, did not respond in a timely manner (and occasionally would text instead of return a phone call or email). She was rude to our wedding party at the rehearsal, and kept changing the prices on us. The biggest thing was that during our reception, we saw her out on the beach showing another couple around - she was hardly present and the DJ and I had to basically wing it. She was not on time the morning of the wedding for when my family arrived to set up, and she had nearly not communicated to the staff helping because they did not even know when the wedding does. She didn't ask us one time if the wedding and reception was going as planned and didn't touch base with us at all during the reception. The owner was also present and never asked how it was going and if there was anything else they could do. There is a separate bar on the same floor of the restaurant that we were told would be closed; however, it opened well before the reception was over. We were very displeased and would not recommend this venue to anyone.
