Lite fare surprise !

Found Trio via Trip Advisor. Wanted something lite to eat with a glass of wine. Really enjoyed the food and ability to sample several wines. The service was very good and the live music was enjoyable. Glad we stopped there and hope to do it again. This is not your traditional bar/lounge. Great... read more

We visit this place every time we hit OBX. We love the wine vending machines, the great selection of beer, and the fun little gift shop. The food is light, and I'd consider more of a place to drink rather than enjoy dinner. Some good appetizers.

Love, love, love this place! Perfect spot for couples, especially if the husband loves beer (as mine does) and the wife loves wine (as I do) Self serve wine tasting stations are located around the bar, or you can sit at the bar and have a flight of wine. My husband tried many different beers and loved each one. Food... More

Great place to try wine and just enjoy some food! Love the atmosphere, food, and all the different wines to try. They also have unique beers if wine is not your thing. Great place to eat or just hang out!

If you're wanting to taste some wines and great cheeses, Trio is great. If you're wanting a meal, then Trio isn't so great. The cheese plate was nice, although I was expected something more than a few strawberries for the seasonal fruit accompaniment. The hummus is very flavorful as well. However, the bread pudding was dry and nearly flavorless. The... More

We came to Trio on the recommendation of a local. It did not disappoint. There was no room downstairs near the bluegrass trio that was performing, so we opted for a table upstairs, which was perfect for us. Our server/bartender was super attentive and helpful. Seeing as their wine and beer selection was EXTENSIVE she offered to make recommendations dependent... More

Great selection of cheeses! My husband is not a big cheese fan but the staff asked him some questions and gave him samples. He found one he liked. Nice variety in wine and beer too! Love the Trio!

We discovered Trio a couple of years ago on vacation and were excited to go back. It didn't disappoint - great beer selection and excellent food, along with a nice shop for gifts and unique beers and wine. This will stay on our list for every visit!

The staff has a fast knowledge of their cheeses and there are around 40 to choose from. Wine selection was amazing and the staff was very nice.
