Always look forward to heaving a wonderful meal here. Have taken grandson on last 2 visits, and they are very accommodating, though it is not a usual for children. Nice presentations, service, and very good meal.

My favorite restaurant in the Outer Banks! Great food, wonderful service; always a treat. The main dishes vary but are always good. Sides provide a delicious balance. A wonderful dining experience.

If you are looking for an ocean view while eating dinner in the Outer Banks you will have a tough time finding it. There are many restaurants with a lovely view of the Sound but because of beach erosion there can be no hotels or restaurants right on the beach. All must set back behind the dunes and have a...

Lastly we had the sea scallop risotto in browned butter, super tasty! It is an upscale restaurant serving... More

If you are looking for fine food,ambiance, cleanliness, excellent wait staff and a cook staff that cares. Do yourself a favor when you are in the otter banks of North Carolina and visit Ocean Boulivard Bistro & Martini Bar! Absolutely nothing can compare to this dinning experience! Nothing!
