Local spot close to Hampstead NC

While visiting family we made a reservation for this spot in Surf City. Small restaurant with a great bar. Food was good to great and service excellent. Hard to get a table on weekend and if prior people are slow your reservation may not hold to its time. Our bartender was great

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had the low country egg rolls appetizer with peach and spicy mustard sauces... so good mixed together. I had shrimp and grits and my husband had red drum with grit cake and edamame. We shared and loved both dishes. They change the menu weekly. Wish we lived here to enjoy it... More

This is one of the finest restaurants on the island. Everything from the wait staff to the cocktails to the amazing food is obviously well thought and planned. Make reservations because you will need them. The food is purchased from local vendors and the menu changes daily. Nice place for a date.

The food was amazing...no children's menu-so not for a picky eater! They use all local vendors and change the menu daily, so everything is fresh. We will definitely be back!!

My family and I have been to this restaurant on four separate occasions and we were thrilled with our meal every time, which is why we kept coming back. We will not be returning I am sad to say after the most recent experience we had. The service was absolutely wonderful. Our server was a perky blonde who tried her... More

We went to The Bistro during our week long family vacation in Topsail Island. We were seated promptly and the staff was friendly. Everything we ordered was delicious. We ordered two appetizers thinking the portions would be small, that was incorrect. The crab dip was plentiful and delicious and so was the house baked bread. For the entree I ordered... More

Last year we celebrated my birthday here! Everything was fantastic except for an extremely long wait to be seated followed by an even longer wait for our food. We ended getting served a hour and fifteen minutes after we arrived!! This year we returned. The food is always delicious, but we were very unhappy with the menu, serving size and... More

Sophisticated dining on the island. Reservations are a must to ensure you get a table as the restaurant is a bit small. Extensive wine list and innovative and tasty cocktail menu. Ordered the local fresh caught hammerhead shark - it was delicious. Word to the wise - the menu changes weekly so don't be set on your food choice off... More

We just had a great meal at The Bistro. We didn't have a reservation but luckily there was room at the bar when we walked in. I ordered the evening's special cocktail that was a champagne cocktail, the eggroll stuffed with collards and sausage, and the farm salad. It was all outstanding. My husband had a steak sandwich and liked... More
