“Not Bad”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

We have been eating here since they opened and fined they have good diner. But, if you call there and ask for a reservation, call back to confirm. After being told to be there at 6, we found out that we didn't have reservations, at all. This was for a Birthday party, and the manager we spoke to told us we would have to wait for 2 hours and blamed the mix up on someone else. She acted like she could care less for our loss. We put a phone call into Captain Ratty's, and had a seat when we arrived. They do have good food and drinks. Just make sure to call back and confirm.

“GREAT RESTAURANT”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We had dinner at Morgan's last week with 20 other people and it was really good. The food was delicious and the service was great. The people there could not have been nicer and more helpful. We all highly recommend it. The price of the menu was very reasonable as well.

“Very Tasty”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

My family stopped in here for lunch while visiting New Bern. The atmosphere is rustic and old but very clean. The wait staff greeted us right away and was friendly. There were several affordable lunch specials. I decided on a BLT on sourdough with a side salad. Other family members had endless salad with a cup of soup. The dressings selection was impressive with variations such as cucumber wasabi. All tables get a big plate of fresh baked croissants drizzled with honey. If that's not enough, the signature croissants also come with all salads, even the side salad that came with my sandwich. My niece ordered Mac and cheese off the kids menu, which she loved. My dad got a lunch portion of the half baked chicken with mashed potatoes. Overall, everyone was very satisfied with their food with the lobster bisque and croissants being the highlights. For four adults and a toddler the bill was $43.00- which is very reasonable in my eyes. I'd go back again when I am in town.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

We had not been here is many years and were pleasantly surprised at dinner. On the pro side the menu is large and varied. The preparation was excellent. The wine list is acceptable, also with craft beers. Portions are large, if you like that. On the con side, it was crowded and noisy as the restaurant holds a lot of people. Finally, they do not take reservations for less than 5 so you wait. Nevertheless, it is a good choice for dining in New Bern.

“Great wholesome food. Unique building history.”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 via mobile

Food was excellent. Soft crabs were fantastic. Grouper was very fresh & flavorful. Sirloin steak extremely tender, melt-in-your-mouth.
Cute decor- as if you are seated in small cottages/stalls.
