Nice little restaurant quaint little town. Service was friendly. I ordered the shrimp and angel hair pasta but ask to substitute tuna for the shrimp which they did at no additional charge. The tuna, ordered medium, was cooked just right. The dish was steaming hot with plenty of large chunks of the tuna, artichokes, tomatoes and feta cheese. The pasta... More

The flounder I ordered was dry as cardboard. The lamb picata my husband ordered was smothered in cream (never expected a picata with cream). Everything was just "so so". Would not go again.

The food was delicious. Staff were very friendly. The atmosphere was family-oriented, prices were reasonable for a nicer place. The waitress was quite delightful. This is not a posh restaurant, but friendly, for sure.

309 Bistro is in an old store front in the middle of historic downtown Edenton. The dining room is rather spare, while the bar is cozy with more atmosphere. The menu has something for every taste, but is definitely seafood centric. Hubby and I settled on sharing the Arugula & Blue Cheese Salad, served with the house chutney, followed by... More

This is THE Place I Always visit on my stays in Edenton! Great menu with a variety of offerings - sandwiches, pasta, meat and seafood. Great Specials, Interesting Drink Menu, and their Bailey's Cheesecake alone makes 309 Bistro worth the Trip! Friendly staff and patrons make this a perfect find for business travelers, locals, and visitors alike!

I just love this place. Every year we eat here for lunch and this year 2 days in a row. Cute atmosphere and great staff. The food is always wonderful. They also are very accommodating for special requests. I can't wait to try dinner next year!

After a day trip to Edenton for some shopping with my mom, we decided to try 309 Bistro. Everything sounded amazing and it was hard to choose. We decided on a portobello wrap and tuna hoagie. They were both outstanding, far exceeding my expectations. We will definitely be returning!

My husband and I ate here this past Saturday and split two sandwiches. The Crispy Chicken w/ goat cheese was to die for however the smoked salmon left a little something to be desired (cut of meat was small and dry). We enjoyed a beer with the sandwiches and the server was pleasant. Would definitely go back!

An unplanned visit to Edenton, NC. Absolutely yummy taco salad with grilled chicken. Husband had a burger with fries. We will definitely visit here again. Homemade salad dressings and desserts.
