The Bistro at Just Baked
Yum!I really enjoyed my meal, the kids loved theirs as well!
No view, but the convenience to the house we rented and food quality, means we will be back! Yum!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMyummy!We had a great experience. The waitress stayed on top of everything and the appetizer and entre' were brought out in a timely fashion. The calamari, the fried oysters and saute' scallops were delicious. I wasn't too sure about the collard greens before ordering, but actually they were very good.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GoodSurf City as you would guess is a beach town. Like all beach towns there's a variety of fast food, fried good and places that promise great fish. The Bistro at Just Baked is the exception. Fish, beef, all is excellent. Though neighborhood comfortable, it's big city cuisine. It's a must stop for us everytime we visit the area.
Thank you for the fine food and very pleasant service.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Favorite!There are few choices on Topsail Island for fine dining, so we decided to try The Bistro. The menu offered many choices of steaks and seafood, but as a Texan, we get steaks all the time. I had the scallops and shrimp, my wife the mahi and shrimp. Both were excellent. The bar had a wonderful bourbon selection, my wife had their "Coastal Cosmo", and we enjoyed the friendly bartender, as well as the entire staff. I think we found a new "favorite" here on Topsail!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBy Far, best in Topsail!Make a reservation or wait an hour+. Although, eating at the bar is fun too. This place is by far the BEST restaurant in Topsail and could hold it's own against any great restaurant in your home town. Bartender Kate is super friendly and attentive. Great craft beer selection and high end liquors as well. Service staff is ALWAYS friendly, knowledgeable and smiling. And the food, spectacular!! The scallops are amazing and perfectly prepared, and so was the ribeye.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent food!While you'll pay a bit more here than at the typical beach restaurant, the food is outstanding. If you're planning to have one "really good meal" on vacation then plan to go here. Note: make reservations early - the place isn't large.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMStay classyI was a first timer , my wife and i were celebrating our anniversary of 3 years . Given tradition we wanted to find good food,good wine and a great atmosphere ,just like the day i proposed . Im pleased to say the bistro did an amazing job. The people were upstanding and very respectable. I think one of the more rare occurrences happened when my wife and i were sitting waiting for our table in the lounge area near the window when the bar tender came over and personally offered us drinks.The bistro is a dynamic and relaxing place to eat and drink , the quality and personalized service is unmatched in the surrounding area. Keep it up and stay classy.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTea glazed salmonSounds strange but i can assure you it is absolutely delicious! Service was on outstanding.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local foodGreat food for a reasonable price with moderate servings. All food is picked/caught locally if possible. This is great when you want local seafood. Even those in our group who do not like seafood had their choice of food and loved it. They will also discount your meal 5% if you pay cash.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA must try....We were vacationing in North Topsail and ate at this resturant....absolutely outstanding food and service. We loved it so much that are going back this evening for another meal. Every aspect of our dining experience from appitizers to desert was delicious.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoogThe Bistro is a great find on Topsail Island. This store front doesn't look like much but when you step inside you will find a great atmosphere and even better food. The specials are wonderful and the menu items are great too. Lots of dishes that offer a fresh spin on familiar favorites. There are specialty drinks and an extensive wine list. Local and seasonal beers are featured. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. One of our favorites.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMIsland GemThe place was packed and for good reason, the food was excellent. Definitely recommend reservations during the prime times for vacationers. Lots of options, including fresh seasonal items. If your on a tight budget, the entrees are mid range ($20-30 each) but the amount and quality of the food is well worth it. Will definitely make this a stop our next time in town!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBeach SurpriseThe Bistro at Just Baked is really a surprise when you are staying at the beach on Topsail Island. You don't expect the quality and variety when you are relaxing at the beach. I would recommend this to anyone who is visiting Surf City on topsail Island5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place to Share Great Food andGreat food as usual and friendly yet upgraded atmosphere. Just right for a goodbye celebration5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently outstandingMy husband and I have been dining at The Bistro since it opened, and we have NEVER been disappointed. The food is fresh, the menu is just the right size, and the chef does an outstanding job laying interesting tastes to each menu item (I think we have tasted them all!). The service is always spot on, and the hostesses are very warm and attentive.
The Bistro is simply outstanding...time and again!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seafood at the beachHad a wonderful Ahi Tuna with mango & apple chutney. My meal was excellent. Would need to save this restaurant for special occasion though because it was very pricey for my budget. (Meal + dessert+ tax+ tip was $46.00 for one person). But was worth it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery SatisfiedWe live in Wilmington and have a second home in Surf City....for some
reason this was our first time dining at The Bistro and I can assure you
it will not be the last. Food was excellent and nicely proportioned.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Whiskey Burger was soOur Whiskey Burger was so big that my husband and I split it. The homemade chiips were delicious as always and two of us could not finish them all. Our son ordered the Greek Burger and Burbon but all of us enjoyed the tasting. We had to wait a bit for our 7:00 reservation but there was a pleasant place to sit so we enjoyed the time with family. In fact this has become our favorite restaurant on Topsail Island.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest on the BeachI love fried seafood and there is lots of it in Surf City. Bistro is not that place. Nicely decorated, professional staff and great food. I had the Cinco de Mayo special, a trio of beef, tuna and shrimp. It was very good. SO had oysters. I also had a trio of tequila shots that erased the bad taste I always remembered with cheap tequila. This was very good. All in all a great experience. The only thing I would recommend is that the homemade chips be crisped before serving. Seems that they are precooked and limp.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAll deliciousScallops with collards were awesome. Good wine pairing and martini made to order.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply wonderful! Period.Simply wonderful! Period.
