    The duck was fabulous! Sweet undertones in the accompanying ingredients was a delightful surprise! Will definitely order again! The sidecar martini was delicious! My favorite restaurant on the beach for a great evening!

    Excellent food-perfectly seared scallop entree and flounder dinner special was very tasty. Fresh and crisp Ceasar salad. Decadent nut pastry with caramel ice cream. We sat at the Chef’s table and enjoyed the kitchen theatre. Decent price point for portion size compared to other similar restaurants in the area. Only slight negative was no French red as listed on the website but powered thru with a Martini instead 😊

    This was our first time visiting Ocean Blvd. We come to OBX every March to celebrate our Anniversary and I’m shocked we haven’t come here yet! Such a wonderful experience- and I was so pleased with the vegan options for me. I always prepare to just have a salad or side but I had options and my meal was DELICIOUS. Our server was just lovely- I loved the whole evening. We will be back!

    You will not find better food, service, or atmosphere than at Ocean Boulevard Bistro and Martini Bar. The care in preparation of the food, the attentiveness of every single server, and the thoughtfulness of the decor is unrivalled. At the same time, it's not at all pretentious - it's a pleasant, casual, laid-back dining experience. Worth every single cent you pay for the experience.

    Their New York strip steak never disappoints and the Cajun rockfish was to die for. I wish it was a regular item and not a special because I would definitely get it again. Outstanding food and service as always. The best restaurant on the Outer Banks for fine dining.

    Best cheese plate I've had in long time. It's called a martini bar foe a reason and I live for them. Could not have been more happy with my cocktails. Friendly staff, they are truly happy to see you. Food was superb, caesar salad was excellent. Everything on the menu was as good as the next. Highly recommend and made a reservation for the next night to check out some items we hadn't on the first visit.

    Well worth a visit, from the moment we walked in the service was great and continued throughout the meal. They have an extensive cocktail menu, the Aviation was excellent, and superb wine list too. The menu is not huge but this usually bodes well and did here too, the scallops and duck breast really were very good indeed. Overall we really enjoyed our visit and will certainly be visiting again. Thanks to all in the team.
