I have eaten at Bistro on many occasions dating back to the days when they were located in a very small space on the island. The biggest reccomendation I can make for first timers is that the items on the menu are good but the Chef's specials are really what you want. Other than the she-crab bisque which is the best I've ever had the only thing else I order from the menu is the Prime rib on the rare occasions that I don't want seafood. The grouper and scallop dish on the specials board is legendary. If they have it, get it, you will not be disappointed. The pasta dishes on the menu are fine but that's not why you are there!! I don't usually get the dessert because I'm so full of bread, bisque and grouper there's just no room. I have ordered a dessert to go several times and found them to be just right . There are many very good restraunts in the Morehead City area. Bistro By the Sea was really the beginning of the trend in the area away from simple (but great) fried and broiled offerings to a more innovative and imaginative approach to the preparation of seafood available from local fishermen.
