Elegant dining in a quaint town

Morgan's has the charm of an old industrial building converted into a restaurant. Their microbrew beer, I had the porter, was incredibly good. The menu had choices from nearly any descerning palate. The aged cheese on the salad has forever changed how I look at cheese in general. I just wish I knew... read more

This old cotton warehouse turned many-level dining has a wonderful menu and after many meals there, I have NEVER had anything that wasn't excellent, and served with the same degree of care. Wonderful 'drunken' clams, and terrific Black and Blue salads; all served with a honey coated roll. Yummmmmy!

This was not our first time there and each previous visit has been very good and consistent. The service, food and atmosphere is above average. It seems there are several floor managers on duty and they spend time checking to make sure everything is as you want it to be. No surprises, very dependable. It's one of our go-to places.

Visiting in New Bern and met my brother and his wife and daughter for dinner. The atmosphere was very friendly and our server Chad was top notch. Several had the house wine which was on special for $3.00 a glass -- very good indeed. The Lobster Bisque, Meatloaf, Baby Backs (small rack), Wild Chicken and Shrimp were all very good.... More

I was in Morgan's on Friday! I had been here before but haven't been able to go lately and I have missed it! I was a little nervous that things have changed due to some posts up here but nothing has changed! We walked in were greeted by very nice hosts and one of the managers helping them out! We... More

To begin with, the croissants with honey melted in your mouth! Service was outstanding going the extra mile to bring my son a blue crayon for his coloring sheet. The atmosphere was authentic! Original brick and beams were exposed. Prices were reasonable. The lobster bisque was rich and creamy. Main entrées were delicious, especially the sirloin filet and pork chops.... More

Was pretty crowded but we got seated in less than five minutes. Waitress took our drink orders quickly. Our soups and salads came out quickly also. Took an extremely long time for our dinners to come out. Waitress came over and apologized for the wait. Then the manager(?) came and apologized. Offered us 2 free desserts for our troubles. Food...

Nice atmosphere and good local beers. Sat in the bar with clients as the line was long for a table. The bartender (she) was busy, but very attentive. Food was good.

My Wife and I have been to Morgans on several occasions. Usually I do not write reviews but I felt obligated to explain my past experience. Our waitress Melissa was outstanding she was fast, extremely nice and handled the stress of a "high end restaurant" very well. On the other hand I noticed while passing the kitchen the manager Mark... More

Unaware that many establishments close at 2 pm awaiting dinner, we were advised to go to Morgan's by a hostess at a place that was closing. We weren't disappointed. Excellent reasonably priced food, great service and a nice atmosphere. did the t
