The Boro Restaurant & Bar in Swansboro, NC

Situated in historic downtown Swansboro, N.C., The Boro Restaurant & Bar isn’t just an amazing place to eat. We’re a celebration of everything that makes Swansboro great. Check out our menus, which feature the best in local, coastal cuisine. Or our live stage, where we showcase the work of talented local musicians several nights a week. And you can’t fully appreciate “The Friendly City by the Sea” without experiencing our coastal waters. So we’re located steps from the White Oak River, with easy access for boaters.

Easter Sunday Hours

The Boro will be open for special Easter Sunday hours on April 9. Join us from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to celebrate the special day.


The Boro specializes in local, coastal cuisine – the seafood for which southeastern North Carolina and the Crystal Coast are famous. But we offer a wide range of other dishes, including pasta, burgers, steaks, and salads. Check out our lunch and dinner menus. We now offer brunch, as well!

We’re not just a great restaurant, but a pretty terrific bar, too. Choose from our extensive selection of cocktails, bourbons, gins, Scotches, and beers. Or let us custom design a drink for you based on your tastes.


Every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday night, downtown Swansboro comes alive to the sounds of talented local musicians from a range of genres. Whether it’s rock, pop, country, or the blues you’re looking for, you can find it on our stage.
