This restaurant has a wonderful ocean front dining experience. Their happy hour specials (4-6) offers steamed shrimp and wings and taco's. The shrimp and wings were awesome. We did not try the taco's but I saw many other parties had ordered them. Definitely worth going....

Waitress was great, but when it comes to the cook staff and I use the term, cook staff, loosely. They slow way down when they get several customers. They took about 40 minutes to get our meal out and it was just breakfast, how hard is that. The food was good, but the order was not complete. If I had... More

I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here, but it is a lovely place right on the beach with adequate food and reasonable prices. Great music in the evenings.

Best meal of our OBX trip. Our family of 6 arrived during the dinner rush and a downpour of rain. After realizing there was no room we left to go to another place. The manager tracked us down in the lobby to let us know she had created a table for us. So impressed that even with a full restaurant... More

I am going to give the Beachside Bistro an excellent because of our first day there. Again, we saw an ad in the restaurant magazine that featured a beautiful dish and prices starting under $15. The first evening we ate there, it was fantastic...excellent. We wanted to order the Seafood Pie, which is a specialty, but they were out. One... More

The food was very good. They have a wonderful pistachio smoked tuna salad. Breakfast was also good. The setting is wonderful and looks out over the beach.

Friendly staff, small menu but good (standard) breakfast items. Indoor and outdoor seating. Only went there for breakfast, can't say anything about lunch or dinner. Though we did have their afternoon snowcones, which were good - hard to mess up.
