Dinner with Business Associates on the deck

It was a nice evening and we sat out on the deck and served by Gabrielle. She made great recommendations on appetizers and local beers. Green tomatoes were super as well as the scallops. (They were out of the New Orleans Shrimp, so maybe next time) The view was great, right on the water... read more

This restaurant has the best the waterfront has to offer along with casual/fine dining and the best dishes available. My husband made a reservation to celebrate my 50th birthday! We arrived promptly at 6:00 p.m. and were seated within 2 minutes on the deck near the band that was playing that evening. The music and singing were great and just... More

We live less than two blocks from this restaurant and have tried it 5 or 6 times. One time it was good, the other times it was terrible. The attitude towards customers is, as if they are doing you a favor by allowing you to eat there. There prices are at a five star level, but wait staff haven't been... More

Waterfront dining on a Sunday afternoon with beautiful views. Food was ok. Expected better than received. Crab dip appetizer had overcooked cheese on top. The crackers with it would have been better if they were less crunchy and burnt brown. Chicken sandwich was good.

Our first and last visit. We should have known when we saw the "B" sanitation grade that we were in the wrong place. We were seated outside on the water which was great. Our server was very nice. However, if you're hungry, you're in trouble. Ordered the scallops because we were told they were the best. When our plate arrived... More

The outside seating was great...amazing how there were no bugs!! The bread and food was a bit slow on arrival but it was good. The ribs were a bit overcooked and the filet was bland but our son's cheeseburger was so good that we ordered another! Our waitress, Gabby was personable and very nice! Complimentary truffles were a super bonus!!

We live in New Bern & dine out frequently; we have been eating here since they opened their doors. Our preference has always been to visit at lunch time & sit outside on the deck; the dinner menu is a bit pricy and I don't think it is that significant of an upgrade over lunch. We had actually become less... More

We sat down and really took in the decor. In a word, lovely. Airy and spacious, the layout is perfect for the space. The windows all around give a scenic view while you enjoy your meal. Our server, Michael, was charming and efficient. We enjoyed his gracious service and wit. Now, the food...was delicious! I ordered the Diver Scallops and... More

What a lovely place to meet friends for a beverage and meal/snacks. The band was great and the customers were lovin' dancing. The Buffalo Wings were delicious with the chili sauce. We never did find the oysters in the Stuffed Portabella Mushroom.

We ate there with a group of 11 and all got varying dishes. I did not hear a single complaint about any meal. I personally had the Po-boy Oyster Sandwich, which was one of the best I'd had. The prices were reasonable and the fare was not over the top. This is a great place to eat, especially on a... More
