We go here from time to time, but the last visit I tried the house ribeye and I have never, ever had a better steak. Morgan's is great. But to show they are human, once again, we tried to make reservations and could not. But the wait was no where near the 30 minutes we were told when we got... More

Morgan's Tavern and Grill has succeeded in creating a restaurant that offers an interesting and inviting atmosphere with a friendly, attentive waitstaff serving delicious food. Our seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection. This will definitely become a regular stop for us when we visit New Bern.

Great food selection all reasonably priced. Service was amazing, ask for DJ. Atmosphere was definitely spot on for the location. We recommended Morgan's to people we met and when we saw them again they said they really enjoyed it also! Reservations for dinner are suggested also otherwise there may be wait times depending on what night you try to go!

Morgan's Tavern has great food! The lunch menu is less expensive but just as good. There are some quieter tables within the restaurant so I would suggest reservations especially in the evenings. Because the ceilings are so high and the walls are natural bricks, it can be noisy at times but as mentioned they have smaller areas to the side... More

Ate lunch in the bar on a Saturday, took about an hour. I had the BLT and my companion the BBQ. The cracked pepper fries are awesome! Friendly waitstaff, interesting historic building. Great place give it a try.

Morgan's is a regular stop on visits to New Bern. The bustling staff and cavernous dining rooms are somehow energizing. The menu is extensive and varied, although our reaction to the food has ranged from "Meh" to "Wow!" Tonight's burger was closer to "Wow," even if it arrived well past a reasonable service time. That's o.k., though, because the server... More

After a disappointing experience at 247 Craven, we were glad we chose Morgan's Tavern. Service was exemplary and the food quality excellent. Our server, Cassie was exceptional, even replacing an entree that I ordered with reading the details and did not want once delivered to the table. We were then visited by the head server and manager to insure we... More

We visited early on a Friday evening so as to avoid the crowds. We were seated and our waitress was very quick to take our drink and food orders. I had the Original Burger, my husband had the snapper. Both were delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant when you're visiting New Bern, but go early if you don't like... More

Very reasonable prices, especially at lunch. Varied menu, unique atmosphere (building once housed an auto dealership way back when), good service, excellent food. Only negative is limited parking in the adjoining lot, though on-street parking can usually be found.
