This place would give Raleigh a run for their money. Wonderful steaks were had by three of us and I enjoyed a great shrimp and risotto. Gluten Free. A great surprise to see so much on the menu that could be GF if you ask. The mashed potatoes were great I heard from my husband. Although vegetables were tasty, would have liked more variety in the mixed grill.
Love,love the homemade potatoe chips and great horseradish sauce and two others sauces.
Service was more than adequate. Knowledgeable and articulate.
Will definitely return. So glad that they are open off season. Nice bar scene too.

Our party of two couples ate dinner at The Bistro and even though we had high expectations based on reviews, we were still suprised that the quality of food could be found in a small beach town during the off season. Yes, it's pricey but no one felt that we didn't get good value. The service was exceptional too. We all ordered different menu items along with dessert and everyone's meal was great. Two of the meals "were the best ever" (rib eye steak and shrimp & grits). The only issue we had in our party was that the wood chairs were too hard and uncomfortable. We will be dining at The Bistro everytime we get the opportunity to visit Topsail Island.

We dined on a Friday evening early, 6:30, reservation highly recommended since the place only has about a dozen tables. The food was very good and the ambiance was perfect and wine list more than adequate. The wait staff was very attentive, but not bothersome or rushing you through your meal. The noise level did increase as more customers arrived for later dining. This was our third visit to the Bistro and we have always been pleased with the meals. Highly recommend the low country eggroll as an appetizer, and both the shrimp and grits, and pan seared scallops for entrees and save some room for dessert and coffee, it’s worth it.

This one is delish! We went there without a reservation(2) had about a 15 minute table wait. So we had a cool refreshing beverage in the bar area. We were notified promptly about the table being ready and had the option to transfer the beverage tab or pay. The "special" drink of the evening which my partner ordered was not satisfactory to taste. It was not consumed and removed, replaced with another one of choice. Our server was very knowledgeable about each of the evenings special dishes, soups and the menu. We quickly received our homemade seafood bisque and fresh salad with homemade dressing. Then our entrees came exactly on time without hesitation as she flowed so well in the small establishment serving a number of patrons. I think for freshness, quality and service I would pick this again and again.

This is a MUST DO whenever you are at Surf City, NC. The menu, though not extensive, delivers in BIG ways... Reservations highly recommended!
