We live about an hour from New Bern and often eat at Morgan's when we are in town. The service is always good, food is fresh, and the lunch especially is a good value. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere as well, though a bit dark. You can eat outside in nice weather.

My wife's chicken and shrimp with a rich mushroom sauce was very well prepared. The chicken pounded to a consistent thickenss and evenly cooked, the shrimp a large size and not over cooked. I had a very well prepared seafood boil with an abundance of scallops, shrimp, sausage and mussels. The seafood was cooked in a tomato, corn, rice sauce that was really good. I could eat this every day for a month and not get tired of it.

They served croissants at the beginning of the meal that were very good. Salads were fresh. I had an excellent onion soup. We have eated here several time in the last two years and the service has been very attentive and accomodating.

Very good quality. Very good value

We went on a Friday night and were told we had to wait 30 minutes for a table but decided to wait since we were from out of town and the menu looked good. In less than 15 minutes we were seated! This restaurant in a renovated old 1913 car showroom shows what can be recycled and reborn instead of being torn down. Looks deceiving from the front.....huge multi level dining inside. You can park in the lot next door if it is after 5:00 pm or the weekend. Prices are extremely reasonable considering what you can get.......baked sweet potato, lobster bisque, mac & cheese, brocolli, steamed fresh vegetables are some of the different sides available. Side salad was big with mixed greens...not cheap iceberg lettuce. Appetizers are great but beware (we ordered the crab dip. Big portion with pita bread) or you will fill up! Steaks are angus and really looked good coming out to our neighboring table. Seafood dishes are great and ample. They do have Angus burgers and sandwiches for lighter fare. Nice childrens menu...food they will eat. Don't forget dessert. Warm bread pudding topped with ice cream! They bring out crossants with your meal...warm with a hint of sugar on them. Again...different. They have a large bar in the back where you can wait for your table. Great wines both by the bottle and glass. We will definitely be back next time we are in town. A+++

Morgan's is a nice restaurant and bar in downtown New Bern. We stopped here as a group of about 8 after hiking in nearby Croatan National Forest on our way back to the Triangle. Although the atmosphere is definitely classy (I was a little worried, since we were all in dirty hiking clothes), the prices are very reasonable and everyone in the group liked their meals. I had the Jalapeño & Cream Cheese burger, which was really good (and really messy!). They also have a good selection of drinks and their own line of beers, although they don't brew them. I tried their IPA, which was really good. The service was also quite good; it took a little while, but we were a large group with separate checks, so totally understandable, and the waitress was very attentive to our group. I would definitely stop here again if I was in the New Bern area.

Met a friend for lunch. Had the overstuffed sub on sourdough bread and fries. The bread was to die for and the entire meal was quite delicious. Servers are extremely attentive--you will lack for nothing.
