Small restaurant! Make a reservation. Everything was great but the boiled peanut hummus with pork rinds were great!! Good wine list. Service was great and exactly on point. Best restaurant in New Bern. Walked from hotel. Highly recommend.

This food was fabulous! It was fresh and the beef was so good!! The waiter was kind and service was relaxed and welcoming. If you're in a hurry don't stop but it's great for a relaxing quiet meal.

We have enjoyed lunch at 247 on more than one occasion. The food is exceptional and the service was awesome. A small intimate restaurant with an eclectic menu. Worth a try.
