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.
We were visiting OBX for one night, and wanted somewhere nice to eat. Opentable recommended Ocean Blvd Bistro, and we went for it. Perfectly cooked seafood (one of us got flounder, one tuna, and one swordfish). I'm fussy about seafood, and this was magnificent. Fresh, perfectly cooked, and nicely seasoned.
Our martinis and wine were great, the service was great, and food was great. Highly recommended.
OB has been our go to place for Thanksgiving Dinner for at least five years. Highly recommend it!
This is a favorite of mine that I enjoy on almost every visit to the beach! Great selections with delicious side dishes and wonderful desserts!
Another fabulous time and wonderful food. Love it!
Was there for our anniversary weekend get away. I must say the dining experience was excellent the service was excellent and the food was outstanding from the New York strip steak to the scallops .It was a wonderful excellent dining experience in you will love it we plan on coming back.
I can barely describe how wonderful the food was! My husband ordered roast chicken and I had lamb chops. All of the sides were super flavorful. Very creative combinations of flavor with every vegetable dish.
We also ordered one dessert to share. It was a type of molten chocolate cake with a raspberry sauce and whipped cream. Beautiful presentation on every dish.
The restaurant itself is lovely inside and elegant but not pretentious at all. The waiter, Brian, was knowledgeable and professional. Even the young hostess was memorable. Can you tell I loved this place? Only wish I could get back there soon!
Excellent food in a classy setting, both of which are unusual for this area.
Always one of our favorites. Great food and wonderful wait staff.
We have been experiencing Ocean Blvd for years and always wonderful. Excellent service and food. We especially like the wine selections.
This visit there were friends with us that had never been. They were extremely pleased.
Really good menu for Restaurant week. Mussels, rack of lamb, seafood pasta, shrimp soup all wonderful
Been coming here for years and it never disappoints! The food is innovative and the service is superb.
Wanted to offer a special thanks to Allison our bartender. She was exceptional!!!
Ocean Boulevard is one of the finest restaurants in the world, and I say that from experience. All fresh ingredients uniquely prepared. The service is outstanding as are the martinis. A superb wine list. A must if visiting the Outer Banks and interested in fine dining.
The only negative that I have is the unevenness of the park bench seating along the front windows. Our table was set in such a way that my husband sat on the open slot where two benches met. Needless to say we had to move the table in order to give him a comfortable seat.
Wonderful experience- superb food, wine and service. Highly recommended.
Excellent food and drink and wonderful service!
Wonderful menu for restaurant week. Brian was a wonderful waiter. Will go back again. The value was amazing.
We were lucky enough to dine here during Restaurant Week. The deal was unbelief. 3 courses for 35.00. First course salad, mussels or shrimp risotto. All were very good. Second course was tuna, rack of lamb and filet. Exceptionally done and well sauced with great accompaniments. Dessert was pot de crenels and strawberry/raspberry tart with ice cream. Yummy. Wine list is well stocked and affordable. We would highly recommend Ocean Boulo
Best vegetarian menu I’ve ever had! Creative, full-flavored vegetarian dishes not to disappoint. If you are looking for vegetarian, vegan or pescatarian options, this is the place for you.
OB is one of our favorite restaurants in OBX. The food is always great and the menu is creative and varied. This is one of the 2 restaurants we bring out of town guests to.
Such a great find. My husband and I had a wonderful experience at Ocean. The staff was very friendly. Our server, Brian, was great. The pace was nice - not too fast and not too much of a wait. I appreciate a slightly "slower" service for the types of food prepared at a restaurant such as this one. The menu was varied enough, but not too overwhelming. We ordered the pork belly appetizer, the duck entree, the scallop entree, and the cookie and ice-cream special for dessert. The pork belly was good, but nothing to write home about. The duck and scallop entrees were an entirely different story. They were delicious and prepared perfectly. Not too many restaurants serve duck, and the ones that do sometimes do not prepare them properly - rendering duck too "gamey," overcooked, or the accompaniment jarring. The duck entree was perfection. My husband's scallops were "buttery." Cooked perfectly, and not overcooked/undercooked, which is easy to do with scallops. The dessert was spice cookies and cinnamon ice cream. It was a lot spicier than we would have liked, and the cinnamon ice cream had a taste that reminded me of Big Red. Bummer because I love cinnamon, but this was a bit too much. Overall, we would drive the hour and 45 minutes just to eat here again.
This was our third time to Ocean Blvd & it never disappoints us. Chef’s table is highly recommended—especially on slower weekday nights. Great presentation/wonderful tasting food. We will be back.
Consistently creative and delicious food preparation that goes beyond anywhere else we dine on the Outer Banks. Excellent service always. The portions are generous. The swordfish was tender and flavorful and the she-crab soup has a great balance of flavors. The filet was cooked exactly as requested. The lamb is a dish we frequently order and is always perfection. A great place for a quiet romantic dinner, as well as a fun place to get together with a group of family or friends. Beautiful wall sconces create a warm ambience.
Great food and service..Met friends from out of town and they LOVED it!!
We have been eating at Ocean Boulevard for a least ten years when we come to Nags Head for our beach vacation. We love the Chef's table and have always felt the meals were outstanding although pricey.
This time it was a disaster. We had a reservation for 7:30 which we made in early August for chef's table. We were seated at 8. Our waitress messed up two of our orders which had to then be redone. After that, she avoided us to the point where we had to call someone to get water. Not one person in the kitchen talked to us. Being at the chef's table has always meant a great discussion with the staff as they prepared meals but we might as well have not even been there. My bistro salad was so peppery my tongue was burning. The pairing of fried green tomatoes and blue cheese sounded good but eating it I felt it just did not work. The blue cheese overwhelmed the light lemony taste of the green tomatoes. She crab soup was very good but Ortegaz same soup has more flavor.
Overall it was the worst night/meal we have had at the Outerbanks this year. Very disappointing.
Picked this restaurant due to its varied menu. All of my group had a wonderful meal. The wait staff was very good and made suggestions for our dining
Would return the next time we are in the area and will recommend it to friends
