This place is fantastic!! We gladly waited 35 minutes at 1:30 on a Saturday but browsed nearby shops while waiting. Interior is so so cute. Very unique layout. Menu has something for everyone and fairly priced. Shrimp and fish were some of the best we’ve...had. Hot honey croissants pre-meal made my day. Superb service. Highly recommend!!More

Cool building with alot of history, friendly staff, delicious sandwiches. Seriously, delicious! We ordered The Cuban and The Loaded Dip.....and we were started off with a honey butter croissant. Everything on/in the sandwiches was perfection. Ariana was great - fun, knowledgeable about the building's history,...and an attentive waitress. The food was so good, I actually spoke to the Manager to let her know how much we enjoyed it. Clean restroom, laid back, cool vibe and great history. Put this tavern on your list!More

Fantastic place to go for food and drinks when you’re in New Bern. The menu is great, love the outdoor seating and I highly suggest ordering a Bear Town Bellini, you will not be disappointed! 10/10

Our first visit to Morgan's with friends will not be our last. The ambience was nice, the server was attentive, and the food was very, very good. I had the half club sandwich lobster/crab bisque and was very happy with my selection. The half club...sandwich is still a very big sandwich. We will be eating at Morgan's again in the near future.More

My husband and I dined on the patio at Morgan's a couple of days after July 4, and they were busy. We tried to reserve a table earlier in the day, but were told we needed to call back at five o'clock (not sure why)....We were able to get a reservation for around six. They were very busy, but we were seated in a few minutes. Our server was efficient and friendly. The food was excellent. I see some reviews about poor service, but our experience was very good and we would go back if we are in NewBern.More

Worst french onion of my life, 6 hr ribs were dry and stuck to the bone, apps came after the entrees. Prisioners eat better.

The unprofessional party at the hostess desk and a 20 minute wait was not fair to the professional server (Jacob) and delicious food we were served! The hostesses did not care if customers were seated or not. We were there on 7/14/23 at 4 pm....The tragedy is that better management could insure a customer would have a pleasant experience and leave feeling appreciated. I felt like an imposition!!! Despite the high quality of food, esp the baked crab dip, I found an uncrowded place where I felt as if I was welcomed and that was at Christoph’s in the Doubletree. This will be my first choice on my next trip!More

If you don't mind waiting at least an hour or 2 hours, the food is good but wait staff has an attitude. There's never any place to sit so you have to wait but if you see and empty chair at the bar you can...sit and wait. Very pricey too. Not my first choice to eat in New BernMore

Morgan’s is the best restaurant in town. We met for friends and had excellent drinks, great service and phenomenal food, we had the NC sin dip for an app and it was great. Food came out quickly and was hot, fresh and delicious, the drinks...were wonderful as well. We had the tuna special and it was cooked perfectly. Our server knew all the specials and beers by memory. Surprising as this doesn’t usually happen. The only downer was dessert. They used to have family s’mores, but they are off the menu. Hey management, UP YOUR GAME AND BRING IT BACK!More

Nice place with lots of different inside dining areas and a good size patio in the back. We had several servers which were all nice and friendly. We started with lobster bisque and salad with honey croissants (yum). Dinner was the salmon entree and the...meatloaf. Both quite good. Dessert was a huge slice of bread pudding that could easily have fed four adults. We’ll definitely be back next time we’re in town.More

I wish we could pick Morgan's up and plop it down in Winston Salem where we live. The food and staff are fabulous. We really did eat there two nights in a row! Burgers and seafood are fabulous. And the staff is top-notch.
