I've never been disappointed at Morgans Tavern. The food is great, at a good value. The employees are friendly and helpful. Morgans Tavern is a good choice for lunch and dinner.

Stopped in for lunch in between work. The inside of the building has a modern look but keeps the history and feel of the old days with exposed beams. The food and service were on point and right on time.

We ate at Morgan's for dinner and lunch. In the small town of New Bern, this is a good choice for either. Easy parking, too. While the food is not extraordinary, it's good, and the staff are helpful and friendly.

Unfortunately, the food was just barely average. Even something as traditional as French fries...a bit stale and rubbery. Couldn't even eat them. Fried shrimp, edible... More

There's a large bustling restaurant behind the drab exterior, broken into smaller sections that works well. Wide selection of usual dishes on the menu but what we had was more than fine. Servers enjoy themselves as did everyone there it seemed - families, business people groups, friends night out.

The decor, the food the service I just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our lunch here. My husband did try the flight of their beer... More

Service was great, more than expected. All the food we saw looked awesome I had a hard time deciding on what to get. Hubby and I had the appetizer nachos and they allowed me to get the chicken salad on the grilled salad since I have a gluten allergy. He said the crescent rolls were great, my 1 year old... More
