We’re not mentioning any names, but there are a fair number of businesses on the Outer Banks that claim to offer oceanfront views that are really anything but. You might catch a glimmer of ocean in between towering sand dunes, or perhaps you can see it in the distance on the other side of a line of houses. Not so at The Beachside Bistro at The Sea Ranch Resort. When they say their brightly painted restaurant and cozy outdoor deck offer an oceanfront view, they mean that as you enjoy their inventive dishes made from locally caught seafood and sip North Carolina-brewed draft beer, you do it with a spectacular, uninterrupted view of the Atlantic. Add in live music on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, killer dining specials like half-priced bottles of wine nights and hours of operation that extend well into the winter, and you’ve got a beachside dining experience that’s everything people love about the Outer Banks.
