We were recommended to try Morgan's and we were not disappointed. The food was great. The spinach arichoke dip was the best we've ever had. Our waitress Anna, was very friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant. See pics attached.

We called to make a reservation and, at that time, was asked if it was a special occasion. We replied that it was our 52nd wedding anniversary. The person taking the reservation said we would get desserts from the dessert tray. When we arrived, we...were greeted with happy anniversary and were seated at a table in a private corner. We ordered and ate and then the server asked if we would like to see the dessert tray and then we ordered dessert. But when the bill came, we were charged for the desserts. Not wanting to make a scene or cause problems for the server, we paid the entire bill and left. The staff needs better coordination. I can not suggest the french onion soup which was poor. Our entrees of tuna tacos and chicken salad on pineapple were very good.More

What a gem! Our waitress, Rachel, was new and did an excellent job! We were pleasantly surprised by the warm, honey-drizzled croissants- so yummy. Our shrimp poorboy was delicious too. Everyone was friendly, the place is spacious but feels cozy, and the food was great....A worthy visit in New Bern!More

Mid-afternoon on a Saturday we were told there would be a 30 minute wait. (We had called ahead to be put on the "Call Ahead" list, but were told they weren't busy so they didn't have the "Call Ahead" list.) We were actually seated in...about 15 minutes. We were near the end of the lunch period, and took long enough to make up our minds that our menus were replaced with the dinner menus. Chose soup and salad. The French Onion and the Lobster & Crab Bisque were both excellent. The salads were ENORMOUS - served in a dinner plate sized bowl. We could only eat about 1/4 of the salads. Throughout the meal, hot croissants drizzled with honey were served (gratis). Our group likes dessert. We ordered the chocolate raspberry cake with ice cream, the key lime pie, and the raspberry, white chocolate & sponge cake desserts to share. Delectable!! The service was EXCELLENT! Our server was friendly, pleasant and efficient! She kept our beverages topped off, and checked on us regularly. We rewarded her excellent service with a 35% tip! She deserved it!More

Our waitress was great and provided good suggestions. The burger and club sandwich did not disappoint. It was rather loud and we had to listen to the table beside us using foul language every other word (basically yelling).

The Grouper Special really was special! It was so good. Served on a mix of rice, corn, black beans, and diced tomatoes it was delicious. We ate outside on the patio which was nice, had an attentive server, and enjoyed the beer selection. Highly recommend!

Stopped here for lunch on a weekday with my wife and had a wonderful time. Despite the restaurant being busy for Friday at lunch-time, we were able to get a table in the bar and prompt, pleasant service. We ate a Shrimp Roll and the...Flounder lunch special and loved them. Also tried one of their craft, draft beers and loved that too. Highly recommended.More

We have eaten here sever times since June 2021. The food is good, casual in presentation and served efficiently. The problem was because of my handicap. Twice, we were seated upstairs, because of social distasting (assuming) even though there were empty tables downstairs. When we...inquired, I was told the tables are unavailable. This upstairs area is only accessible via stairs, which is extremely difficult for me with a broken hip. However, the service was good, so was the food.More
