The food was pretty good, and the service was good, too. The interior of this place is kind of neat as well. The location is right in the middle of downtown New Bern, so that's a plus too. I was a bit surprised that there weren't more people there on a Friday night, but the weather was not good, so... More

We ate here shortly before closing. The food was excellent, the service couldn't have been better. Even though it was time for the staff to leave, we were treated as if we were their first customers. The food was hot and freshly prepared. Will visit her again!

Good morning. If you love breakfast good with a relaxed setting please come here. Breakfast is only served on the weekends from 8a-1130a. The portion side is crazy so make you take that into account. I normally eat lunch here during the week. There is not too many places that serve pancakes in town.

Quaint little town with lots of very good dining. I rate Capt Ratty's one of the best . The New York strip was awesome to say the least, Although very busy the service was excellent efficient and curteous. Will be returning next time in New Bern.

We decided to try a couple of appetizers for lunch. The building and decor leads to a very comfortable and neat atmosphere. I love to try calamari everywhere we go and was disappointed to find theirs were heavily breaded. The marinara was excellent though. We also tried the shrimp quesadilla which was very good. The beers were nice and cold,... More

Comfy, cozy and delicious with an above average wine and beer selection. I wanted something simple and the chicken parm was amazing in portion and presentation with a nice fresh tasting sauce. My wife had the fried seafood bounty and it too was delicious with a fresh taste and light batter. Our waitress Corri M was excellent, very knowledgeable on... More

Captain Ratty's is a New Bern institution. It has a very varied menu. The seafood is absolutely wonderful (try the fish and chips), but they also serve up a darn good steak too! For those who want to eat light, they have some fantastic salads also - but be warned they are big - big and delicious. Captain Ratty's also... More
