Sat at the bar 2 nights in a row and they were great. The food was excellent and timely. It is a little pricey but not unexpected for the town or type of restaurant. Go here!

Loved the oysters and mussels here long with the rum punches. Plus they were open mid afternoon when a lot of shops and restaurants were closed between lunch and dinner

Wonderful casual dining in Downtown New Bern. Great food. Especially enjoyed the fried oysters and shrimp. Sat at the bar with friends and chatted with the bartender and locals. Enjoyable afternoon!
