Although 309 Bistro and Spirits was highly rated, our experience was not so great. We were seated upon arrival and got our drink orders and placed our lunch orders shortly after that. We waited and waited for our lunch and the tables surrounding us were served their food first and they all had come into the restaurant after we did.... More

It was my first time visiting Edenton and some of the locals recommended 309. We had to wait just a short time for a table. I ordered the Mexican Bay Breeze grilled chicken salad and my husband ordered the brisket sandwich, both were VERY good. We shared a piece of homemade Baileys cheesecake and it was DELICIOUS!! Our server was... More

My wife and I stopped by @ noon this past Saturday. They were very busy with several large groups seated. We sat at one of two tables next to the window. Our server arrived shortly, exchanged pleasantries, took our orders and departed. The place by that time was full and was pretty loud. Service was pretty fast considering the number... More

My wife and I eat at 309 most Saturday mornings. The food is wonderful and the waitresses are very kind and pleasant. A "go to" place.

Although I've eaten at 309 many times and the food is always delicious, the service was abysmally slow. It took 50 mins to get 3 salads and one sandwich for lunch. Didn't seem to make a difference to our server...no apology...so lower tip! The Bay Breeze salad with shrimp was great as ever, but it'll be a while before I... More

We went to the 309 on a recent visit. The food was great but it was very noisy. The seating area is rather small and the party near us was loud. The waitress was very good and offered good service.

In town at a B&B for a few nights and came here on recommendation of the B&B. Not disappointed. Service was friendly, prompt and attentive. Local craft beer selection was great. Meals served promptly. I had fresh tuna medallions wrapped in bacon, nice salad and potato. Would have gone back the second night but that was reserved for the BBQ... More

We had an excellent lunch after our stroll around downtown . I had the quiche, and my husband had a spicy chicken sandwich. We enjoyed our food.

When my friend and I went to Edenton yesterday we chose Bistro 309 for lunch. I"m so glad we did! I had their "carnita salad" which included spiced pulled pork, about a half of an avocado, black beans, tortilla chips, and more. But what made it so extraordinary was a mystery sauce poured over the meat. It's obvious this is... More
