We were on our way to Ocracoke, NC but weather had cancelled the ferry connection. And not having visited Edenton for about 30 years, we headed there. A local cop recommended we give the loud tourist joint -- one of those with captain, grill, shrimp or some such in the name and a lot of enormous tires in the parking... More

We eat here more than any other restaurant in the area. Good service and good food. The flounder is the best! The sides are great. Desserts are worth the extra calories. Since they took down their beautiful tapestries it's gotten a little noisier. (hint hint) ;-).

We had dinner here a couple of years ago while exploring this charming little town. The food and menu selections were just as good if not better this time. My husband had the lamb cutlet special in a lemon piccata style sauce. It was lightly coated with flour and he chose the gratin potato side. I had the scallop fettucinni... More

This restaurant was recommended for a special birthday dinner. The interior was very simple and plain not quite what I would call a bistro. It was small and quaint however it was so loud you could hardly speak to the person across the table. This is always a negative for us. Upscale and shouting at your dinner party are highly... More

I had dinner here on a one night stay while in Edenton for business. I ordered the smaller steak portion from the menu and it came with green beans and a salad. Everything was cooked perfectly and was brought out in a timely manner. The house made dressing for the salad and steak sauce were amazing. Also had a couple... More

We couldn't go here for dinner on Monday night since they are closed Monday but we went Tuesday for lunch. We arrived at noon when a large number of others also arrived. We thought it was going to be a while but surprisingly we were promptly waited on and the food was served very quickly. My thai chicken wrap was... More

Traveled to Edenton, NC and had the pleasure of eating at this place. It was recommended by Mrs. King at the Visitors Center. We got there when they opened at 5 pm for dinner. We were greeted by Crystal who sat us by the window. She was also our waitress and she did a fantastic job! We ordered and I... More

In every aspect, 309 was a superior experience. Decor had a true bistro ambiance. The waitstaff was knowledgable and professional. The contemporary American menu was appropriately limited and well prepared.
