Our meals were well prepared, good menu selections to choose from, and a very nice bottle of wine to go with the meal. Our server was great!

I've stopped by the 309 several times in the last few years while on overnight business trips in Edenton. Always enjoy the variety of dishes served by enthusiastic locals who take pride in what they serve. There are several other decent restaurants in the town as well, in what is a pretty rural area. I seem to gravitate back to the 309 after eating at the others, their menu is a tasty touch of urban in the country. One of the joys of traveling and eating locally is the variety and difference of local foods, including NC seafood that pleasantly varies depending on what part of the Atlantic or Albermarle Sound the seafood is harvested from. The critical comments in another review regarding the Bistro's scallops are amusing at best, if a traveler seeks standardization in their food they would perhaps best be served at a fast-food establishment where the cusine comes from a factory, or perhaps stay home. Dining while traveling should be a positive adventure. Certainly reviewing an establishment while still at the table borders on the gauche, too.

Perhaps we have been lucky enough to know what real scallops taste like from the shell. Instead we received a tough fish-like circle that we suspect had never been in contact with a shell. Service was perfunctory, and the steak entree was ordinary. The kicker was the response when the server realized we were writing this, "Y'all writing a snarky review?"

No, not snarky, just our experience and our opinion.

Stop in for a cocktail and an appetizer; Friendly staff! Great if you're looking for a little bar for watching "the game"!

The food at 309 was out-of-this-world. Everything from the sauces, sides and homemade desserts were melt-in-your-month amazing. My husband and I can't stop talking about the meal we had at 309. Don't miss out! Incredible food, intimate setting and great service. Perfect all around.
