Our family and friends enjoyed a very good meal. The bay scallops are very good as is the Brussels sprouts. The steak and chicken was also very good. The waiter was very friendly! The kitchen mixed up the order some how and some of the table had to wait for 10 minutes for their food while the rest of us... More

We were in New Bern for the weekend and tried Persimmons since it was right next to where we were staying. We chose to sit outside on the deck overlooking the river. Great ambiance! The menu emphasizes fresh local ingredients. The crispy brussels sprouts appetizer was unique and very good. Main course was Mahi with lump crab garnish served on... More

As good as the food was our waiter Kane made the visit just that much more memorable. Well versed on the entire menu he... More

Most restaurants with waterfront views don't have the great food to match and Persimmons was no exception. Our table for six found it to be extremely expensive and lacking is the seafood we were hoping for. Three of us had Shrimp and Grits. Now I've had S&G all over the south and I've never had a dish served that was... More

We stopped for lunch and enjoyed a fine meal while seated on the waterfront deck. The service was exceptional with wait staff who actually seemed to enjoy their jobs.

Shrimp and grits were delicious - also enjoyed fish and chips. The view was wonderful outside on waterfront. Service was a bit slow. My appetizer came with my meal. Friendly staff.

I ordered the North Carolina Fish Stew and it was excellent. The stew was tomato-based or possibly beet, but sweeter than the bouillabaisse-type fish stews to with which I am familiar. The stew was not heavy with garlic or onions, but used sweet potato and carrot (I think) to give it a local flair and sweetness. The crispy-skinned fish on... More
