This is a historic inn but the dining room and atmosphere was more like 1977 than 1777. Not bad if you're a boomer, but a little staid for younger folks. The filet was good and done as per order. Squash very good. I would recommend...More

The bar food is the bomb. Best quesadilla on the planet. Seriously. The restaurant has more upscale options. But when you are drinking and hungry, the chicken quesadilla is the ticket. Denise and Dave make this the most enjoyable late night spot in New Bern.

We go there when we are in New Bern in Feb. This time we were disappointed. I ordered the crab stack which I remembered as being excellent. The softshell crab was overcooked and tasted of the oil it was fried in. The crabcake and potatoes...More

Visited the Mansion and was greeted by a friendly hostess and taken to a cozy dining room. Claudia, our waitress was very professional and did not rush us. The salad was very tasty. I had the lobster trifecta which was amazing! So many different flavors...More
