Focusing on providing guests with a great dining experience is what we do. Using some of the best ingredients from local providers, Circa 81 takes pride in offering a farm / sea to table menu as much as possible, supporting local fishermen and farmers. Scroll down for a list of some of our purveyors.

Circa 81 has participated in the NC Seafood Festival Chef’s Tent and People’s Choice Crabcake competition, the Beaufort Wine & Food Festival, and the Fire on the Dock culinary competition (where team Circa 81 was a finalist in 2013 and semi-finalist in 2014). Circa 81 was also finalist for the 2011 Best Dish NC contest.

Circa 81 offers a variety of catering options, from delivery and pick-up to full-service off-site catering, chef-designed for holiday parties, business luncheons, corporate events, rehearsal dinners, and wedding receptions.

Rent the entire Circa 81 Dining Room or reserve the bar side of the restaurant for holiday parties, corporate functions, birthday celebrations and large family gatherings.
