I had a hamburger. It was very thick, but cooked to order. Very friendly service. I would eat here again.

My sisters and I ate at 309 Bistro for lunch. We had the Cuban Ruban and the Shrimp Po Boys. Absolutely delicious with a great waitstaff. We really wish we had waited to eat dinner there because that menu looked yummy as well!

Second time here for lunch. Great sandwiches and beer in a really nice atmosphere. Place was quite busy. A good sign in a small down.

The food was tasty; the service was done with a smile and the dessert was scrumptious. Would recommend to anyone for good food and the prices were not bad either.

My wife and I stopped in for lunce while on a business trip to Edenton. She had the chicken wrap with pasta salad while I had the brisket sandwich with cole slaw. My wife was pleased with the wrap but could not finish it. The sandwich had brisket overflowing the ciabata bread and was excellent. The vinegar based cole slaw... More

Nice little restaurant quaint little town. Service was friendly. I ordered the shrimp and angel hair pasta but ask to substitute tuna for the shrimp which they did at no additional charge. The tuna, ordered medium, was cooked just right. The dish was steaming hot with plenty of large chunks of the tuna, artichokes, tomatoes and feta cheese. The pasta... More

The flounder I ordered was dry as cardboard. The lamb picata my husband ordered was smothered in cream (never expected a picata with cream). Everything was just "so so". Would not go again.

Literally stumbled upon this town and restaurant. Our GPS went out and we stopped in this town to eat and try and get directions. We were directed to this restaurant for lunch and we loved it. It's store front on the main street, which is very quaint. The selections were numerous and quite good. Service was prompt and friendly. I... More

The food was delicious. Staff were very friendly. The atmosphere was family-oriented, prices were reasonable for a nicer place. The waitress was quite delightful. This is not a posh restaurant, but friendly, for sure.

309 Bistro is in an old store front in the middle of historic downtown Edenton. The dining room is rather spare, while the bar is cozy with more atmosphere. The menu has something for every taste, but is definitely seafood centric. Hubby and I settled on sharing the Arugula & Blue Cheese Salad, served with the house chutney, followed by... More
