We stayed at the Sea Ranch and ate at this bistro for breakfast. Wasn't too hopeful when we walked in and stood in the door for 5 minutes before one of the employees came around the corner and said we could seat ourselves. But after we got seated, service was great and the pancakes and bacon were delicious. Had a... More

Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner - all delicious. Live music at night, with half price wine on Thursdays. One of the best parts of the hotel!

Stopped here so we could eat lunch and view the ocean. It would have been nice to eat outside but there was a family with kids, so we decided dining inside was a better option. We had a table by the window and a great view of the beach. Our server was friendly, and the food came quickly. The salads... More

The restaurant was pleasant and had a nice view of the ocean. I had the daily special of Swordfish on a bed of potato hash. The hash was more like a stew and the taste was muddled. The swordfish did not have much flavor. The fruit salsa on top was the only enjoyable part of the meal. For $19 it... More

We went after spending the day on the beach and going to Cape Hatteras. We ate on the deck with live music and it was a beautiful night. Our server was great and my friend had the swordfish and I had the clam chowder and salad. Everything was very good and the salad was fresh and a perfect match for... More

I hate to give a poor/average review to a place in the outer banks as we love to support all of the businesses down there, but our experience at the Beachside Bistro was nowhere as wonderful as so many others had. This could be due to the fact that we sat inside (due to wind) which is nothing more than... More

I loved dining beside the ocean at sunset. It was not too hot, and with the breeze it was very nice. The food and service was excellent.

We started our vacation at the beachside bistro 6/28 for dinner. There were six people in our party. We were seated without any wait at a table outside by the ocean. The service was excellent. I had the tuna, seared rare, and it was cooked perfectly. Others in our party had the scallops and really enjoyed them as well. This... More

Pricing is a little much for the food you get (always decent though) but the atmosphere is great. Chicken tenders are my favorite! :)
