We had a great dinner t Oceana's Bistro. The clam chowder was very different from most I've had and it was delicious! Nice and thick with loads of clams. The crab cake sandwich was almost all crab and the French dip was very good too. Atmosphere was friendly and inviting. We will go back!

The hubby and I ate an early dinner here on October 18, 2012. The staff was delightful. They were friendly and helpful. The pricing is about average for OBX. The hubby had fish tacos and a pork wrap which he found excellent. I went with a black and blue burger and fries. It was heavenly. One of the best burgers I've ever eaten. Casual decor, has a full stocked bar, and the dining area is nice and clean.

Have been vacationing here on the Outer Banks for 25 years. This place combines some of the freshest and best seafood on the East Coast AND some of the best landlubber food you can find down here. Most restaurants do seafood very well, but this place had some of the best Buffalo Wings we've ever had. That's what makes Oceana's unique for this area. A great mix of entrees, appetizers, salads and sandwiches. Build your own wraps and quesadillas with lots of choices is something i've never seen. Nice, somewhat noisy atmosphere with upscale decor.
Very good place! We're going back today for the Seafood Nachos!!

We had a friend visiting us when we visited the Outer Banks. I didn't feel like cooking because we had so much catching up to do, so we dined at Ocean's Bistro. We have dined out 5 times this visit to Rodanthe and the Oceana's Bistro was by far our best experience. The grilled tuna and the crab cakes were outstanding. There is hardly any filler in the crab cakes, which makes such a difference. I asked for my tuna to be done medium rare and it was perfect. The one thing you should not miss on the menu are the sweet potato fries, with just a dash of cinnamon. It raises them up to an entirely new level. This was a wonderful meal and we are certain to return.

As we were driving down to Hatteras Lighthouse, we tried to find a place for a late lunch. In Avon
we found Oceana's Bistro where the parking lot was packed, but decided to see if we might eat there. When you walk up there is a charming porch with comfortable furniture to seat those who must wait. Inside there is a large bar area, and a dining room. The restuarant was bustling, and there were daily specials listed on boards. There were many selections of fresh seafood, sandwiches, salads, sides, appetizers, and entrees. The bartendar was friendly and attentive considering how busy they were. I chose the prime rib French Dip sandwich and Dave chose the Tuna sandwhich. Our dining neighbors had fresh oysters, and a seafood nacho platter. All the food was devoured quickly, except my wonderful sandwich which had to be packed up for later consumption (It was delicious, but large!) The wine selection was good, and the dessert menu looked scrumptious.
The bistro was extremely clean, and the women's restroom was decorated with purses and high heels...it was quite eclectic.
The service was efficient and swift considering how busy it was at the time. The Bistro is also open for breakfast and dinner. Locals sitting by us told us that this was their favorite dining spot.
We highly recommend a visit to this wonderful little gem in Avon.
