Captain Ratty's is a New Bern landmark!! It is a low-key, casual restaurant with reliably good food and good wine. During the summer, it's fun to sit up on the roof and look over New Bern's beautiful waterfront! It isn't fine dining but it never...More

This place is a hit or miss for me. The food is usually decent and the prices aren't too bad. The staff is always friendly. They do have good white clam chowder (chowdah of from up North).

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.
