The seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection. My grilled tuna with feta cheese, black olives and sun-dried tomatoes on a grilled tortilla with cheese was heavenly. Very generous portion. Husband's fried grouper with homemade old bay seasoned chips was also excellent. Friendly and attentive service.

With everyone closed for the season, we found Oceana ' Bistro to be open, but had little expectation. Inside, a great little restaurant and bar with very friendly staff. Good variety of dishes, including pasta and salads, with very good crab chowder and excellent fried oysters, crab cakes and a reuben sandwich. Looking forward to a return trip.

This is just a great place to eat, not real fancy. Has a nice bar and great daily specials if you want to eat on the cheap. They have great fresh local seafood and nice pasta and sandwiches. The people who work there are kind and the service was great. Plus its open all year round! Can get crowded though,... More

I was looking for seafood since this was on the coast but most of the restaurants were closed for the season. I was glad to find Oceana Bistro and to find that they had fish on the menu. I had the blackened grilled flounder. It was excellent and cooked just right.

My husband and I decided to stop here based on the fact that the parking lot was full. Good call on our part. We had calamari as an appetizer which was very good. My husband had the fried oyster and shrimp platter with sauteed vegetables and sweet potato fries. He said everything was cooked perfectly and was very good! I... More

Great place a must stop in place on the Outer Banks, NC; almost passed it and it's worth the trip to eat at the local eatery; you can smell the ocean even though can't see it.

My daughter and I were traveling around Hatteras Island when we suddenly became very hungry. We didn't want to eat at a fast food restaurant and were hoping that all the dining style restaurants were not all closed for the season. We were having a real hard time finding one and even passed Oceana's Bistro when we decided to turn... More

Obviously a place for locals, but we didn't feel out of place. The crap dip was so good and even had shrimp in it. The old bay chips were addicting and fish was served hot. The table next to us got shrimp Alfredo and it looked so good that I have to go back to try it. Definitely worth a... More
