I took my girlfriend for a couple of their 247 Hotdogs, but the waiter explained they aren't available for dinner. Afterwards she decided she desired their famous Pimento cheese and soup, however she would like the cheese on two pieces of toasted bread as a sandwich. I echoed the same. The waiter disappeared for a moment only to return the... More

This is a very good restaurant with very good food. I ordered to "spaghetti" and it was excellent, but not traditional. It was served with cheese, butter, and some kind of sweet sauce. Not quite what I expected-- nonetheless it was amazing. The service was attentive and tasteful. 247 Craven is a very small restaurant, about 10 tables + bar.

We had lunch at the restaurant. I asked for an egg omelet and the chef was great about doing it for me. Very fresh with delicious veggies. Highly recommend

We ate here on a Thursday night and it was hopping. Relatively small space adds to the lively atmosphere. Carefully crafted menu had several highlights: the pimento cheese with crab and fried green tomatoes, as well as the spaghetti caccio e pepe were all delightful.

247 Craven is a very good restaurant for anyone looking for an excellent dinner. The restaurant is a small open concept, and when crowded it can be a bit on the noisy side but do not let that stop you from trying the excellent food that is served. I would definitely suggest calling in for a reservation so that you... More

Met up with a friend for appetizers and drinks and we were pleasantly surprised. We did not have a reservation- which they recommend, but the server made room for us to dine at the bar. We had the mussels and shrimp toast. Both were OUT OF THIS WORLD good. We were hesitant to order the shrimp toast but we were... More

A small establishment in New Bern that has a small and different menu than you will usually see. The food was excellently prepared and presented. Don't be afraid to jump out there and try something different on their menu. All items are fresh and homemade. The deserts were excellent. The service was attentive and friendly. You won't be disappointed, so... More

We had walked by a few times in the past, and the place was always packed...now we know why! The starters (fried green tomatoes and brioche with shrimp) were very flavorful and shareable. The pastas were nicely presented. The dessert sampler was fantastic...you get to pick any three of the menu selections, and all are homemade. Nice ambience and friendly... More

After booking a reservation at a nearby eatery (where I have been), a couple friends suggested that I change my reservation to 247 Craven. What a mistake! This place is small, with maybe a dozen tables, and loud, and hot (I don't think the A/C ws working on this visit). The cackling table of loud women on the other side... More

It's a very small, quaint restaurant. Not for large dinner crowds. We were 4 couples and it was snug even though it wasn't fully booked. Loved the menu. Great flavors in the fried green tomato appetizer. The warm pimento cheese appetizer was delicious too. Had to ask for bread and the dipping olive oil was a little strong. We ordered... More
