Great little seaside bistro

Ate breakfast here several times, lunch once, and evening drinks with entertainment once. Really cute nautical theme and looks out over the ocean. Great food, great service, decent prices. Can't really ask for more!

I have written several reviews for Beachside Bistro and its associated hotel, Sea Ranch Resort. This time, we returned to celebrate the New Year 2016 by taking advantage of their special that included an Oceanfront room, breakfast for each day at close-by Jolly Roger Restaurant, a charming place and one of our favorites as well as a New Year's Eve...

We attended an all you can eat oyster roast which included steamed shrimp & pulled barbecue plus lots of sides. It was very reasonably priced and was absolutely delicious! About the best meal we've ever had on the OBX! The waitresses are very friendly and very attentive. Definitely a repeat venue.

We were looking for a nice place to eat after an afternoon movie. Thanks to Trip Advisor, we thought we'd try the Beachside Bistro. We're so glad that we did! We found friendly service, a diverse menu to choose from & evening specials. Make sure to save room for the best Key Lime Pie on the beach! YUM! We'll be... More

My wife and I decided to try this place for an early Friday dinner. We arrived shortly after they opened at 4pm. We asked for a table next to the large windows for a view of the ocean. My wife ordered the crabcake sandwich with fries, and I ordered fried flounder with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled corn on the... More

Our first night we ordered takeout from the bistro. I requested no onions in my salad, and there were onions. My kids thought the chicken tenders were a little overdone. However, we went back for breakfast the next two days, and that was excellent. Super friendly staff, and amazing pancakes. I wish it had been warmer so we could have... More

We stayed at the Sea Ranch Resort while visiting OBX for our 50th Wedding Anniversary from 9/23 - 9/28/15. We ate breakfast every day at the Beachside Bistro. The food was wonderful and there was a great variety. The coffee was especially good. Our waitresses were Gwyn and Tamar. They greeted us every day with smiles, were both very attentive,... More
