Work trip for about a week. Ended up going up and down the main street looking for good food. This was the best place for seafood. Tried some of the older places but MJs tasted the best. Recommend the oysters and a good beer.

This small but good restaurant was a nice place for dinner. Don't try to go with a large group as they are pressed for seating agrea. Most are booths for a group up to 5 maybe 6 if you have kids. Nice bar area for a dozen around a TV. We had a great mix of seafood and salads. The Maryland steamer was a great option if you didn't want fried food. Service was average for an overall good night out.

First time, I got their clam chowder to go. It was delicious but cold and when I say cold I mean really cold. The second time, I got their blue burger. It was mediocre at best and tasted frozen not handmade. Wendy's would have been tastier and less expensive. The pasta salad that I ordered as my side was delish, but it was only about 2 tablespoons of it. I won't be back.

Stopped here on our visit around historic New Bern. Was a treat. Small restaurant with a few outdoor seats for those with their pets to enjoy and a small bar at the back. My husband had the crab cake sandwich which was very good. We shared the raw oysters and I had the steamed mussels, also good though just a tad overcooked but the broth and biscuits served with them was excellent. A decent wine by the glass variety and a good beer selection.
