What a fun little tasting bar -- wine, beer, cheese ... all of the great things in life! The wine card was so fun. You fill it up with some money and can then use it to pour tastings from wine dispensers in the bar. The beer list was impressive. The cheese board was delicious. Friendly locals at the bar.... More

This place is just perfect....fantastic service, amazing wine selection, great food to pair with the wine and beer selection, live music, great atmosphere, etc. I only wish I had discovered it sooner as we would have gone here nightly. There is a lovely adjoining retail shop where you can buy the most amazing wine, beer, cheese, honey, etc....anything you could... More

If I were a restaurant, I would want to be Trio because everyone would love me. If you like wine. And cheese. And craft Beer. And friendly Service. Great atmosphere also. This place is a no brain-er. I love a place where you can see people wearing flip-flops and drinking Duckhorn. Other side is retail so if you like something,... More

Stopped in here based on reviews that I had read. My husband and I were with another couple. We are all in agreement that it was a great choice. It was our first experience with wine dispensing....petty cool. Great opportunity to try many different wines. But you are not limited to that as there are others available from the bar... More

Amazing wine and beer selection!! We went to Trio's on the recommendation of a friend and it was the highlight of our stay! The main floor is a wine/beer space with bar. Upstairs is a small restaurant that offers salads, paninis and many different cheese selections. The wine selection was very good and even better, for a corking fee, you... More

My brother and I stopped in here for drinks and snacks one afternoon. We each had a beer flight, and I also got a cheese board. The beer selection was fantastic. Lots of local and seasonal beers. On the way out we browsed the retail shop and walked out with two mixed six packs. I love places that sell individual... More

We went here for a girls night out. It was fun and so easy to sample the wines and their cheese plate is delicious! An easy going atmosphere to gather with friends for conversation.

My husband and I went on Outer Banks Restaurant Tours - Kitty Hawk with Terry Bell. This was our third tour with her. Trio was our first stop on the tour. We had wanted to come here when we were on the Outer Banks in 2013, but never ventured in. There was a lot going on during that visit with... More

I just visited Trio with the expectation of finding a gift bottle of wine. What I did not expect was to be treated with such disrespect as the youngest member of my party. As we both looked at wine, my mother-in-law was immediately offered a taste...I was ignored. After I resigned myself to not purchasing wine there due to her... More

We stop at Trio every year. Last week, we were there on 8/13/14. As usual, the visit was outstanding. The cheese connoisseur was very knowledgeable and answered every question with such pleasantness. It was a great experience. He let us sample numerous cheeses, giving us the back story to each one. He informed us of cheese/wine pairings. Another selling point... More
