Bistro-by-the-Sea is an inviting restaurant and private banquet facility that is conveniently found in the heart of Morehead City along Arendell Drive. Overseen by husband and wife team Chef Tim and Libby Eaton, the restaurant serves up a collection of creative fare that takes inspiration from both the Crystal Coast environment and the classic “old school-slow cooking” style.

For dinner patrons, the menu is a refined collection of classic and unique dishes, which includes a limited but varied selection of house made soups and salads, small plates, fresh seafood and meat entrees, and fresh accompaniments. Though many of the items can change with the season, patrons will be treated to a range of staples such as the bistro-style creamy shrimp and grits, chargrilled filet mignon, and slow-roasted beef and prime ribs.

Bistro-by-the-Sea can also cater to banquets and weddings, thanks to a romantic atmosphere with outlying waterfront view and ample space, and even features a piano bar with live entertainment every Friday and Saturday night. The setting is perfect for a glass of wine or specialty cocktail, and is a relaxing destination after a long day on the beach. Freshly unique and delicious, Bistro-by-the-Sea is perfect for visitors who prefer the slower pace of the southern lifestyle.
