We visited 247 Craven for an early dinner in August on a Saturday night. We arrived early ahead of our reservation time. The staff was warm and welcoming and seated us promptly. We were brought warm bread - always a plus! Our server recommended a nice wine to go with dinner. The food was beautifully plated and delicious. The grilled... More

Driving around New Bern on a Sunday morning looking for a parking place we found one right across the street from 247. The next thing we were looking for was a late breakfast. Brunch must have been over. Ordered off the menu. Basic breakfast. Bacon, eggs, grits, toast, coffee. It was good. Service was good. Will be back.

If you're near downtown New Bern searching for a place to eat, look no further. 247 Craven had fast and friendly service, delicious food, and was well priced. My co-worker and I stopped here for lunch while passing through New Bern and we both agreed it was an excellent dining experience. Tip: Thursdays at lunch the special is an open... More

247 Craven was recommended to us by friends of friends who used to live in New Bern. We're glad we tried it and would likely pay a return visit. Overall, the food was very good and our waiter was attentive. The atmosphere, a small dining room in the heart of downtown is generally what we enjoy and 247 Craven didn't... More

We enjoyed a wine dinner a while back and had a great time enjoying wine pairings with a very creative menu! We have eaten here a few times in the last 6 months and enjoyed the normal menu. But I recommend attending a wine dinner because Chef Ashley does a terrific job of blending his creativeness in the kitchen with... More

My wife and a young German friend visiting us all share birthdays in August and decided to have a joint celebration dinner. We have eaten here 3 times before. The service is still excellent and on an uncrowded Tuesday evening even better. We had 3 different fish entrees: scallops, bouillabaisse and salmon. All were paired perfectly with fresh vegetables grown... More

This small restaurant in downtown New Bern has a pleasant feel, a nice wood bar and a chef who should be in a much bigger city, but those who live here really hope he stays. Ashley Moser is as creative with a variety of cuisines as any chef I have sampled in Raleigh, D.C., NYC or beyond. They serve lunch... More

Ate here July 4th weekend. Great menu. I had beef, wife had shellfish, friends had the special which was sea bass. Everything was top notch, from the drink selections to the sides (the mac and cheese was fantastic) and the entrees and desserts. And the service was impeccable. I just don't understand the negative reviews here. next time we're in... More

My girlfriend and I recently moved to New Bern, NC and we have been going out a lot to explore the town and finding local eateries and events has been a joy. A week ago (July 2014) we decided to try 247 Craven for brunch because we had heard they had a good one. So we decided to go since... More
