We stayed at the Sea Ranch and ate at this bistro for breakfast. Wasn't too hopeful when we walked in and stood in the door for 5 minutes before one of the employees came around the corner and said we could seat ourselves. But after we got seated, service was great and the pancakes and bacon were delicious. Had a view of the ocean while sitting inside and it wasn't very busy on a Sunday morning at 8am. Didn't try any other food there, but definitely enjoyed the pancakes and would recommend the breakfast there.

Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner - all delicious. Live music at night, with half price wine on Thursdays. One of the best parts of the hotel!

Stopped here so we could eat lunch and view the ocean. It would have been nice to eat outside but there was a family with kids, so we decided dining inside was a better option. We had a table by the window and a great view of the beach. Our server was friendly, and the food came quickly. The salads were fresh and huge. The popcorn shrimp seemed more like regular sized shrimp to me. They were fried to perfection, and there were almost more than I could eat. Although there was a lot of the green stuff, there were plenty of tomatoes, eggs, bacon, onions, etc. The dressing was perfect. I usually don't like to go on and on about salads, but I definitely plan to go back and have this salad again!

The restaurant was pleasant and had a nice view of the ocean. I had the daily special of Swordfish on a bed of potato hash. The hash was more like a stew and the taste was muddled. The swordfish did not have much flavor. The fruit salsa on top was the only enjoyable part of the meal. For $19 it was a disappointment.

We went after spending the day on the beach and going to Cape Hatteras. We ate on the deck with live music and it was a beautiful night. Our server was great and my friend had the swordfish and I had the clam chowder and salad. Everything was very good and the salad was fresh and a perfect match for the chowder. My friend enjoyed the swordfish which she hadn't had before. Even though it was after 6 our server gave us the 15% discount for staying at the Sea Ranch which was nice.
