We live in this town, this is our number one place to eat. Food is excellent, wine list is excellent, service is superb. Not overpriced. Often packed out. Beef is cooked to order, fish is excellent. "Not your mother's meat loaf" is something to try.

Maybe I'm just ordering the wrong things when we go, but the only menu items I've really enjoyed are the sandwiches...and I'm not a picky eater. My husband really loves their Whiskey River Steak so if you are a meat eater this may be a superb choice for you. They have an awesome Rueben and, as noted, very good burgers.... More

Service was outstanding!!! First they come out with some delicious croissants with honey all over them. Right away bonus!!! Then I had some of the best lobster bisque I have ever had. My wife and I will be back again and again.

My wife and I had lunch here recently, with good friends, while we were all on vacation together in New Bern. I had a dish that was very similar to a bouillabaisse with delicious tender mussels, my wife and my friend had shrimp scampi and my friend's wife had the fried shrimp. Both the food and the service were very... More

This restaurant, like the rest of New Bern, is steeped in history. Exposed beams, beautiful wood floors, old brick walls and helpful servers. Our food selections were delicious and we look forward to eating there again on a return trip to the area.

Trip advisor never does me wrong and Morgan's Tavern was wonderful. The special was Mahi Mahi on a bed of broccoli with two succulent shrimp on top. Delicious! So glad I stopped here.

We received warm croissants with honey drizzle. Our sandwiches were huge, tasty, and promptly served. Waitstaff was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The decor of the restaurant allows for people watching while affording some privacy. A beautifully laid out dining space with high ceilings, exposed brick, and good lighting.

While staying at the Doubletree we walked to Morgan's for lunch. Our waitress Stormie was awesome and attentive. She interacted well with our 4 year old. He is a picky eater and only got the delicious croissants for his meal. She packed him some to go. We were so thankful!! I ordered a burger with fried pickles and back...it was... More
