This place was a great find, thanks to other reviews! The food and staff are AMAZING! The atmosphere had much to be desired, but who is looking when you're eating this delicious food! Crab cakes that are almost all crab and fresh caught grouper and scallops. Desserts are equally as amazing! It's away from the tourist beach areas, but drive here anyway. You won't be disappointed!

This restaurant has the ambiance of a romantic late night dinner club. Dimly lit with a sizable bar area and a piano being played in the background. Since we did not make reservations, we had a drink at the bar while we waited for our table. The service was incredible!

We started our meal with the Atlantic Blue Crab Bisque which was the best we ever had. We shared a rare ahi tuna entree along with one of the nightly features and then followed it with dessert. The flavors tantalized our palates making this a restaurant which requires a return visit.

This is my all time favorite restaurant in Morehead City. Live music on Friday and Saturday nights, so it's a perfect place to stop by for a glass of wine or a drink and then stay for dinner. The food is outstanding - both the seafood and the prime rib. Anytime my husband says where do you want to go, my answer is Bistro by the Sea!

This restaurant was our best food stop while on a vacation in Atlantic Beach, NC. Dip their delicious bread in the. Blue Crab Bisque, which is out of this world. Atmosphere is warm and beautiful. Waiter was fast (but not too fast) friendly and informative. I had the lobster tail, a generous 8oz, it was presented beautifully and cooked to perfection. My husband totally enjoyed the nights special including Mahi Mahi.
If you are ever in the neighborhood, put this restaurant on your must do list!
