Four of us were visiting New Bern for a few days and this was one of the restaurants that were recommended by our innkeepers. We were there about 6:00 on a Thursday evening. We were immediately seated. The service and food were very good.

We were browsing downtown Beaufort and stopped in for a late lunch. Not very busy time of year so there was only one other occupied table when we arrived, although a few more were seated before we left. The restaurant seemed to be a local spot and known for the upstairs wine bar and wine tastings. We were downstairs in... More

This place is a must!! Ordered the salmon sandwich lightly blackened and it was just delicious!! Hubby got the the burger with mushrooms and onions and he enjoyed it as well. They have a variety of foods on the menu. We will be back for this one!

I had the fried soft shell crab sandwich. It was served in a timely fashion with a choice of sauces and the servers were pleasant. The sweet potato fries were crisp and didn't taste like fish!

seafood very good, fresh, hot and tasty, priced for the middle income crowd. I would recommend if you are in New Bern, N. Carolina, to drop in and try Capt. Ratty out.

We stopped here for a late lunch, around 2:30 on a Sunday and ate atop the roof. Great location! The waiter and waitress had 5-6 tables the entire time we were there and yet our appetizer came with our food, 30 minutes after ordering and I never got the drink I asked for. The food was fine but the service... More

Lots of different areas to enjoy your evening! A Main dining room, an upstairs sports bar type and a quiet second floor dining area! Great oysters on the half shell! Delicious clam chowder! Excellent service! Two servers and a bus boy taking care of each table! Very little wait time for food. Good cocktails also! Understand the Reuben is delicious... More
