Interesting Restaurant - Conveniently Located

We were staying in a nearby B&B and decided to walk to main street for dinner. 309 Bistro was recommended by our host She did not steer us wrong. We were seated at a table by the window overlooking the sidewalk. We were happy that the menu featured a good selection of "small plates". I had... read more

We stopped by for a sandwich before the trolley tour and had a small wait, but it was worth it. Very good and good selection.

Had lunch here. Friendly welcome from both hostess and waitress. Quickly seated and drink brought promptly. Tried the hand-carved turkey sandwich. It was wonderful. Other menu items looked tasty with several healthy options. Casual atmosphere that is nicely decorated. Will return if ever back in the area.

We went with friends and several of us ordered crab cakes. There was way too much filler in each cake which made them taste like straw. The woman who is the hostess needs to smile. A restaurant is a people business and if you appear to not like what you do then please get a different job. The price of... More

Place was recommended by the Don at the Captain's Quarters Inn. Great atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff. The food was very, very good. The location right in the heart of the historic main street area was a perfect end to a lovely day walking around the waterfront.

What drew me in was the Kale Salad mentioned on the Specials board out on the sidewalk. We ordered the beef tips fondue app, and it was quite flavorful! The kids meals were only $4.99 and included drinks (and the restaurant actually had milk!). It was the typical kids meal selections though - chicken strips, hamburger, grilled cheese, etc. They...

First time in Edenton area, and hit the downtown water area for a bite to eat. 309 came highly recommend and did not disappoint. The Smoked Salmon BLT was great, and the house made chips made it almost sinful. Excellent presentation and the ranch dipping sauce for the chips was an added touch. Lunch service was timely and would go... More

Dined at 309 Bistro & Sprits 3 times in a week. Each time there was interesting choice of entrees, great food, great location and great people. Highly recommended.

Friends were going to dinner at 309 and invited me. I decided to give the place another try, but again I the food and atmosphere were not good. The place needs painting and a different table arrangement. The hostess still does not smile or welcome you.
