The Harvey is a great bar in downtown New Bern! The bar is in the basement of this historic mansion. The prices are fair and there is normally a good crowd! I like it because it has more sitting areas than the other "late night" bar in New Bern. There is enough room to mingle and enjoy your drink without... More

Dinner for four here recently was average. The building and its history are very interesting. The blurb at the back of the menu gives quite a bit of information about the mansion in its heyday. Wine list by the bottle is very good, just a few choices by the glass. Having been told to try the meatloaf, my husband ordered... More

Weekday evening reservations brought us to Harvey Mansion in New Bern NC. The 9,000 sq ft home began in 1797 and completed in 1804 has had many faces in time. During the Civil War the house was used as a military provost headquarters, of which the house remained in the Harvey family until after the war. For a time in... More

Upstairs you will find fine dining and atmosphere...at its best...Downstairs is a more casual affair possibly a band ...the food both up and down is the same and for the price..you really do get exactly what you pay for.

The crab cakes were very good. The lobster trifecta special was also very good. Could have been great if the server, Michelle, had not been in too much of a rush for a large party in another room to take our order for drinks. Good food deserves good wine, not tap water......

I've been here several times over the years. It's one of my favorites in New Bern when I visit for an annual handbell ringing event. Service is always good. In fact, I think each time we've had the same delightful server the past few years. I had the crab cakes and a salad, then splurged with the cheese cake. All... More

Four of us went to celebrate two birthdays. Very nice private room. Excellent wine options, very reasonably priced. Food was outstanding. Two of our party had steaks, one had their meatloaf, and the other the stuffed chicken. All was fantastic. We got a tour afterwards of the other rooms. Be sure to stop in the basement bar on the way... More

We visited Harvey Mansion again after a few months away. They were very busy. Our dining room was full and they had another room with a party of ten. Once again we had a very good meal with excellent service. The house salad and especially the bread were very nice. The house wines are fine. We had the rosemary chicken... More

We have been dining here for 17 years and this restaurant is consistently excellent, service, food quality, and atmosphere. This is a great date restaurant, quiet and comfortable. The menu does not change very often but there are plenty of good choices. I am generally stuck on the Lobster Trifecta special(always available), but I have tried almost everything else. This...
