Always a welcoming atmosphere, great food with prompt service. I would fight a bear with chain saw arms for their excellent breakfast and a cup of their French press coffee. There's always some wait around peak times but that's expected. I almost hate to recommend this spot because then I have to wait in line after you,the fine reader of... More

Captain Ratty's certainly didn't sound like a place to grab breakfast, especially a healthy one; however, it was a great surprise to find acai berry bowls on the menu. The bowls were large and topped with fresh fruit and a light sprinkling of granola. Keep in mind, the blend is frozen. It's almost like eating a smoothy with a spoon.... More

We had overcooked scallops and Shrimp Scampi that was more oil than anything. Very disappointing for a seafood restaurant that is rated so high.

This was my first visit. Seafood was pretty expensive. Most all the seafood was around $20.00. The service was a little slow but they were busy. I got a burger and it was good. My friend got a crab cake sandwhich and he said it was the best anywhere. I would try eating here again.

Has good food downstairs and an awesome wine tasting room upstairs. You can get any food you want in the wine tasting room. Atmosphere of the wine tasting room is a ten on a scale of ten. The employees are always polite and quick. Prices are decent. There is also a roof dining area for good weather. Some of the... More

We stopped in for a family meal. Ambiance: We were kind of disappointed by the ambiance. I thought it was a bit more towards a middle to higher end place, but it is more of a bar & grill type of place. Service: Great, attentive and friendly service. Food: We tried appetizers, main meals and salads. On a scale of... More

My wife and I were in town on business and decided to stop in for lunch. We were seated immediately. We were waited on quickly and we had our food within 15 minutes. Our lunch was very tasty and plentiful. The service was top notch and the prices were very reasonable. If we are ever in New Bern again, we... More

We just loved our recent visit to New Bern. Wonderful town and people. While the service was outstanding, the food was underwhelming. The shrimp and grits were greasy and the special blackened tuna was bland. The wine was good though and the waitress was terrific.

Thank Joan S
