Delicious food, both creative and comfort, plus generous portions

We were really pleased with the meal we had at the 309. There was less of a wait to get in than there was at other local restaurants, and the meal was outstanding. Had a "summer salad" of watermelon, cantaloupe, tomatoes, basil, goat cheese and a balsamic reduction that I've got to try to make at... read more

The atmosphere of this place was great. It's conveniently located in the middle of downtown. The staff showed typical friendly southern hospitality and quickly seated us and took our order despite being quite busy. The prices were reasonable and the food was great. We would recommend this place to friends and family. They seem to have a great selection of... More

Had lunch there the week of the 8/13/15. Exceptionally nice and helpful staff. Open, airy, clean and a nice amount of tables. Ordered from the menu and discovered that most of the season, if not all, was preseasoned. I have a problem w/ MSG, so I was limited as to what i could trust. Got the grilled shrimp po-boy. Lovely...

For a good dinner, there are not a lot of choices in Edenton. 309 has some good food at decent prices. The wine and beer list also is pretty good. Service was very friendly and efficient. A nice selection of desserts, including gluten-free ones.

I really enjoyed the Key Lime Pie Martini. I had never had one before but it's definitely a new favorite. It was refreshing and not too limey. Really good!

The staff, the food, the atmosphere, the view! All wonderful! Had the spicy crispy chicken wrap with goat cheese and a side of tropical fruit. The food was absolutely phenomenal! Going back shortly.

This was the only restaurant open in Edenton, so we dined here. Despite the surprisingly good wine list for a small restaurant, the food I thought was poor due to lack of meaningful competition. Despite my wife enjoying he ahi-tuna starter which was huge, the food went downhill fast. My steak was cooked correctly, but was tasteless and the green... More

Start with the Coconut pie!!! I have never had one so good! We also had an appetizer of shrimp wrapped in Phyllo dough and summer salads that had strawberries and watermelons and goat cheese and balsamic drizzle! The service was quick and really friendly. The only thing that could have been better was their wine by the glass menu- not... More
