The hotel was very nice, restaurant was right next to the open bar, and on a Saturday night 0/5 would recommend. Couldnt even hear the people across from you. Food was good but not worth the $$$$, nice server. Overall not what we were expecting. Not a sit and have normal conversation more like go eat high priced food and holler at your guest to talk.

Great delicious food, hot and fast on the table. Attentive waitress. Even with a full restaurant and bar you could have a normal conversation. Very good and enjoyable experience and this for the second time. We recommend this restaurant

Our Thanksgiving meal was outstanding. The turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and cranberry sauce was delicious. We topped off our meal with bread pudding.

Outstanding in every respect. We hand turkey dinner at 36 last year and couldn't wait to get back. The wait staff were great. No other restaurant in Beaufort nor Morehead city can compare to the ambiance and views of this location. Can't until next year!

One of the best restaurant meals I’ve had in a long time! The drinks were imaginative and well-crafted, the fish entrees were fresh and tasty, and the bisque was hot and hearty. Our friendly waitress helped lead me to excellent choices of cocktail, entree’, and dessert and we never felt rushed between courses. Parking was a bit problematic and the location is a bit off the beaten path, but otherwise I highly recommend this place

This is a hotel restaurant. We had dinner and breakfast and found the food to be good but overpriced. The breakfast experience was less enjoyable overall.

Our first visit to 34 degrees North was terribly disappointing. In all fairness, the whole evening was ruined by a big group of drunken, rowdy, and inconsiderate hotel guests who dominated the bar and the dining room. We had difficulty hearing the lady who waited on us. The second damper was the difficulty in finding the parking area (no signs), although the restaurant offered free valet parking. Third, the best part of the meal was the wedge salad. The shrimp appetizer was overcooked and the sauce too sweet. The crab cake appetizer was tasteless with a vague hint of crab meat. The NY strip steak was overwhelmed by the demi-glace which was too sweet and barely a hint of garlic. It would have been a total disaster, where it not for the goodwill of our waitress, who did not charge us for the wine. Sadly, it is highly unlikely we will return.

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.
