We had both a dinner and breakfast here. Everything was very good, and we would love to enjoy another meal Beachside!

My wife and I had lunch here the last day of our OBX week. Arrived in time for happy hour (it was a late lunch) and sat at the bar. Very good service and food was good for a quick easy bite while on the beach. Only had items from the appetizers menu, but they filled the need.

After waiting almost 45 minutes to be served my omelette was runny. I sent it back twice until I finally said forget it, I don't want it.

We came primarily for the live music and it was superb. If you can catch a Scott Sechman performance, do it! And Beachside has great ocean views and tasty food. We'll definitely be back!

We stayed just down the road so we walked there to eat dinner one night. The food was great and we lived sitting outside listening to the music. Our kids loved it too. We walked right in and only had to wait maybe two minutes to get seated. Definitely worth the trip!

$.25 shrimp $.50 wings $1.00 tacos Honestly, those deals with an ocean view... Can you beat that? And live music? And Lil Nikki as your server? This is what I dream about when I think about my beach vacation. We sat inside (too hot for the porch!) and enjoyed every second of our time there! So many happy hours on... More

I just read a review about Beachside Bistro and clearly the person was there the same evening that I was so if you don't mind, I'd like to give my perspective and also mention that it was not my FIRST time eating at Beachside Bistro - I go there a lot and here's why. First the food is great, very... More

I hope this review serves the owner well. If you read it with an open mind it will be a game changer for you. It's a bit of free advice that, if followed, will enhance and improve your restaurant. Oceanfront restaurant. There aren't that many of those. That right there means your establishment should be a happening spot. Let me... More

Only place on the oceanfront that you can have cloth dining service, crepes, breakfast/brunch menu, mimosas and sea oats framing the ocean. Great food. Great service. Fabulous location in Kill Devil Hills. Our Sunday fave and weekly week night happy hour stopover. 💜💛💚💛
