Excellent Food, Excellent Staff

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.

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

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.

Husband just had the tuna and risotto, said it was the BEST he has ever had. You have to try it if you're in the area.

My hamburger and fries were cold. The meat was raw in the center and I ordered it medium well. The hostess did not greet people with a smile and appeared to definitely not want to be there. The overall atmosphere is the restaurant desperately needs updating. I felt like I was vp ack in my high school cafeteria. Although the... More

We have eaten here several times,with each meal being truly wonderful. Great location in the middle of downtown Edenton. 309 is easy to stroll to or even ride a bike to. We sometimes top off our meal with the delicious Bailey Cheesecake that is made in house.

Great food and service w a smile! Fondue beef tips were a perfect starter and the rock fish with truffle oil and Brussel sprout casserole was a perfect combination! Can't wait to come back to try the specials next time
