I live locally and have eaten here probably half a dozen times in the past year. I always recommend 34N because the food is delicious. We had family visiting this weekend and were excited to bring them here. I suggested the Grouper because we've had it several times before and it was wonderful. But when they brought it out, at first I thought it was a joke. The fish and risotto could have fit in the palm of my hand. It was about 3 bites. They were definitely never this small before. For a $40 meal, it was crazy. Meanwhile my $15 burger was probably enough for 2 people. Then we ordered dessert and it was like a crapshoot, depending on what you ordered it was either huge or tiny. My young daughter ordered a piece of cake and it was like 1/8 of a whole cake. My pie was normal sized. They should really indicate whether the dish is particularly large or small on the menu if they will be this laughably varied. We ended up spending a ton of money and half the people in the party were still hungry when we left. Very embarrassing and probably will not be coming back for a while.

Food was fresh and good. Nothing truly exceptional but the lettuce on my salad was crisp which makes a world of difference. Husband had the burger and it was your average burger. I originally ordered the blood orange cosmo - $13 - but was told that they were out of the blood orange mix. I asked for a mimosa. When she brought the check she said “it still says blood orange cosmo on the check because it’s the same price as the mimosa so I didn’t change it.” $13 for a mimosa 🥴 seems extreme having a champagne and orange juice drink cost the same as a liquor drink with multiple liquors in it. Service wasn’t great. She never refilled waters or came back to check on us. We wouldn’t go back since there are so many better options in Beaufort at the same price point but with better atmosphere, better choices and better service.

Disappointed overall. Caprese was wonderful. Steak was undercooked and charred on the grill to the point that you could taste burnt meat. The veggies were also great and flavorful. We ordered the “Creme Brûlée Cheesecake” and it was just a normal piece of cheesecake.

We were a party of 4. We brought two of our oldest friends to dine with us and I have to say.. 34 Degree North hit it out of the park! Everything came together for one of the finest dining experiences we've ever had in Carteret Co. NC

Everything was amazing! The reservation was easily placed, our anniversary was acknowledged upon arrival by… a special anniversary menu presented by the hostess, both our server Zack and the manager Logan verbally giving us anniversary congratulations. Dinner was absolutely delicious. Warm bread, homemade dressings (The Blue Cheese was the best -I have ever eaten!), we both had steak Filet & Ribeye. The steaks were cooked perfectly, the sauce/the flavoring completed the meal and paired nicely with mashed potatoes, mushrooms, asparagus & Key lime pie for desert. Our dinner at 34° North Restaurant was the best eaten while on our anniversary trip to Beaufort, NC. Outstanding food, outstanding location, outstanding staff 5-Stars!

Went for dinner and drinks with 2 friends.
Pretty disappointed in menu selections.
Small, mostly seafood menu.
We only found a couple of appetizers.
Was expecting better since most people I know said it was a great place. I think they meant only the bar however...

They are beautifully presented,creative and delicious, from fish to chops.
The setting is ideal both in and outside. It's always a pleasure.

We have had dinner at 34 North five times this year since moving to indian Beach. Every visit has been an excellent and enjoyable dining experience. Service staff is excellent and the atmosphere is great inside or outside on the water. Parking is easy with the valet service and a added value to those dining. Great to have such a nice place for special occasions or just a evening out with friends and family. Thank you for being our favorite dining spot.
