“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This is always a great place to eat. The clam chowder and crab cakes are our favorites but we have ventured out a few times to try other things and have not been disappointed.

“Great food, Cool Location”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Ratty's is a cool place. Traditional pub downstairs and wine bar upstairs. Food is great and reasonably priced. The weekend brunch is the best in New Bern.

“Cool wine room.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

I love the wine room but it is only open certain days of the week and closes fairly early. Great wine selection and cool signature drinks. The black truffle fries are amazing! One of my favorite local hangouts!

“Good food, reasonable prices”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

We came here on a Sunday night when not much else was open. My husband got the special -- beef tips over rice pilaf. The beef was well cooked and tender. We couldn't quite figure out why the rice was called a pilaf, as it looked like basic white rice. I ordered a fried shrimp appetizer as my entree. The portion was huge and we could not eat all of them. The shrimp was good, but not great. We were seated in the bar area, so we didn't get to experience the ambiance of the restaurant itself. I would come here again, but it would not be my first choice in New Bern.

“Nice place to enjoy lunch in the middle of historic downtown New Bern”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

We have eaten at Captain Ratty's several times over a three year period when visiting New Bern. The food has been consistently very good. Fried Green Tomato BLT is my choice, but my friends have had the blue cheese burger and clam chowder. Prices are also very reasonable. The only reason for the 4 rating on atmosphere is that it can at times be a little hard to hear your table companions. The location is great for a walk to the unique shops and historic buildings there in downtown.
