Very good salad & breaded shrimp, rolls. There are a lot of menu items. It would be nice to have a bigger restaurant for patrons.

The atmosphere is fun and casual. The quality of the malls is great. Sometimes we will just stop in for a glass of wine. This area of New Bern is fun to stroll and has good shopping.

Service is wonderful. Food is incredible. Atmosphere is great. We had steamed shrimp and a steak. Both entree's were wonderful. I drove 4 hours to get to eat there before going on to Hatteras by ferry.

We had a decent dinner and good service at Capt Rattys. The rooftop area was open but it was too windy when we visited

Came here twice during a long weekend. The seafood is great..I had half of a mug of clam chowder that filled me up before I could eat my salad and crab cakes. Nicely seasoned and prepared.

I do not recommend this restaurant. For over a thousand dollars we had only cucumbers, squash. chicken (which ran out before all were served) shrimp and grits (rather grits and one scrimp). Service was practically non existent. I asked three times for coffee before I...More

This couple that gave Captain Ratty a bad review came in with an attitude in the first place, we were sitting right next to the hostess when they came in and overheard the whole conversation. They were rude, the couple didn't even give the young hostess a chance. It was very busy February 12th for dinner and there were several people waiting..they came in and expected to be seated.....then threatened the hostess that they will be getting a bad review on TripAdvisor. My only recommendation for the next time is to give the customer a longer wait period and hope that maybe a table will be ready before the time lapsed.

I felt the couple was completely out of line, nasty and used TripAdvisor to "payback" the restaurant for not giving them a time frame for getting seated.
