Eating at the Ocean Blvd is a wonderful experience. Highly recommended for an evening of intimate dining!
Always great food. Relatively quiet on an off-season Sunday night. Very enjoyable.
We have always enjoyed our sojourns at Ocean Blvd, and value the friendships we've made over the years. It is a special place for us, and, quite frankly, we save our visits for special occasions. We thank the staff for making our experiences so special.
Simply put, Ocean Boulevard is the best restaurant in the OBX. They had a Fat Tuesday event that was quite enjoyable. The New Orleans themed menu, staff and entertainment were great. If you are ever in the OBX, plan on going to Ocean Boulevard. I guarantee you, you will be disappointed.
always exceptional in every area. easy to make a reservation. enough parking great food excellent service
Ocean Blvd is one of the few restaurants on the beach road, and has a friendly warm atmosphere. Our server was very good and attentive. The food is good and presented well. Sometimes, dishes have too many ingredients and are a little over the top. But they do seafood and fish very well and the salads are great. It is a little on the expensive side.
Our dinner Friday night was absolutely delicious! We had the flounder/shrimp dish and it was one of the best meals I've ever had. Donnie and Heather plus the staff took wonderful care of us. My suggestion...GO!
Chef Mike is superb at preparing delicious cuisine. Portions were perfect and the flavors were exceptional. We love this place especially at the chefs counter. Fried oyster salad was outstanding as were the chicken livers with hot honey glaze.
Fancy food without the fancy flavor. Wasn’t impressed.
It was a little pricey for wine.
The food was delicious! My steak was perfect!
Service absolutely wonderful Kendall was our waiter
Everything was terrific
This a very good restaurant!
My only issue was the way the wait staff was deployed on the night of our visit.. We were assigned a table on the upper level of the restaurant, with six tables in our section. After being seated, we waited a full 20 minutes before we were approached by a waiter, all the while, the other tables were being attended to by other wait staff.
After our waiter finally arrived, he apologized profusely for the wait, and explained that he was assigned two of the six tables in the upstairs dining area, and the rest of his tables were on the main level of the restaurant. Upon observing the other tables, it was determined that there actually 3 waiters assigned to the upper section, each having 2 tables.
This configuration required the wait staff to constantly traverse the stairs in order to properly attend to their two tables. Most inefficient!
It would just seem more reasonable to have one waiter assigned to the six tables in the upper section. Yes, the waiter/waitress would be climbing steps all night, but I don’t imagine any more than they were as it was.
Alas, once our waiter became aware that we were seated in his section, he was most attentive, and the evening was a success.
Food was fantastic!
Great Valentines Day dinner. The rack of lamb was outstanding and the bourbon bacon sauce over apple crisp really good. OB is the best on the beach!
Food and service were fantastic. Pricey
Truly one of the finest restaurants in the world. Our meals have always been outstanding as well as the service. Their Valentines Day special menu was fantastic. Can’t wait to return. See their menus on their website. The preparation goes far beyond any other restaurant.
Sat at the chef's table and enjoyed the food very much. A little more explanation of the food would have been appreciated. Great experience, overall
I love this restaurant the food is always delicious. Very well done. But my boyfriend I are vegetarians and more vegetarian options would be wonderful.
Great food that is always prepared in a very different way. Love the use of different flavors and spices. The poke tuna app so good. A definite go to restaurant anytime in obx !!
One of our best dining experiences ANYWHERE! Everyone was warm and friendly. The food was just over the top! From cocktails to apps to soup to entrees to coffee and dessert. We would highly recommend.
Fabulous food Not a big menu but everything is delicious but unfortunately prices are high. A true treat!
Great casual fine dining in the OBX. Interesting diverse menu and good specials. We went twice in a row since there were no other choices of the same caliber nearby.
Always a pleasure to have a wonderful meal at Ocean Blvd. Favorite memory is 20 years old when we took our oldest grandson for dinner and his Mom d=said we had ruined him for life since he would not eat out anywhere that did not serve creme brule.
From the Manhattans to the chocolate dessert, everything was exceptional. We had the lamb meatball appetizer which was delicious. My husband had the flounder, shrimp and grits special and I had the swordfish. Both were prepared to perfection! Most definitely our favorite place on the OBX for a special dining experience.
The food and service were excellent. The prices were high as compared to similar dishes at other restaurants, but we would definitely go again! Important note for those with mobility issues: restrooms are on the second floor.
Sat at chefs counter n loved chatting w Chef Mike . Welcome to chef Jay too.
Loved chicken livers n pork belly.
This place is really the best
Took my wife there for her birthday. It was just great. Couldn’t ask for better anything and the food was perfect . Probably the the best we’ve had on the beach.
We’ve been dining here for many years and are never disappointed; this visit was no different. OB is hard to beat with great service, a nice environment, excellent wine list, and especially good and creative dishes. You won’t regret going here.
Great restaurant in Kitty Hawk. Fantastic wine list. They made my wife’s 59th Birthday special.
We had an excellent dinner at OBBistro. The oyster stew, venison and lamb selections were outstanding. Our server Annette took very good care of us from beginning to end. Executive Chef Donny King paid us several visits and made us feel very welcome. We will go back often..
Ocean Blvd always meets & exceeds expectations with ambiance, service, special requests and food quality.
The salads are fresh. The entrees outstanding and generous. We enjoyed the seven lettuce salad with warm bread. The scallop entree with rotolo was superb, not a morsel left on our plates. The filet & venison were outstanding as well. Highly recommend OB for a great all around dining experience. Thank you, Heather & Donny and all your accommodating staff.
Always enjoy Ocean Blvd. My go to place for that "special"meal".
Service and food was absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere is very relaxing
Food was good. Restaurant was pretty busy but our service was spottier than usual. Will probably skip it on our next visit to the area
The food was excellent and our server, Tom, was very friendly and super helpful answering all our questions. He’s great!
My husband and I took friends visiting from Texas for dinner, who had recently purchased a vacation home. We wanted the celebration to be special and we were not disappointed. From making a reservation to our warm welcome, good service and delicious food and beverages, Ocean Blvd Bistro & Martini Bar was a perfect choice.
We enjoyed an excellent meal, start to finish. Would definitely recommend!
First time dining here. Really enjoyed the small plate menu. Perfect amount of food. Also got big plate Mahi-Mahi. Lamb needed some seasoning, but cooked perfectly. Price point was perfect. Conner made several recommendations which were spot-on. We will be back.
High quality restaurant with wonderful food and excellent service. One of the best restaurants on the Outer Banks for gourmet dining and fresh seafood.
Fine food,vattention to detail, not just beach food. Great cocktails, menu selection great, staff really great. Must try!
Say at the bar for wine and a dinner of bar food. Lamb meatballs and accompaniments were delicious. The tuna poke bowl was so fresh and a perfect dinner portion. And for dessert , the macadamia torte with caramel ice cream was perfectly decadent. The wine pours are always generous. As locals we will see you again soon.
