247 Craven Ratings and Reviews
We went there for a birthday celebration and it was a great experience. The food from the appetizers, main entree, and deserts were very well prepared and presented. It was one of our best meals here and easily rivaled the we reclaimed "Chef and the Farmer" restaurant in Kingston. Excellent service as well. It is a very small restaurant though. We'll be going back for sure!
We arrived at the restaurant only to be informed that our reservation had been cancelled. How or by whom I have no idea. Anyway, they were able to seat us. The service was very good as was the food. Our one negative experience was the noise level. It was so loud that it was difficult to hold a conversation.
Wonderful experience. Food was top notch and so was the service. Was not expecting as good of food that we got. The scallops were very fresh and delicious and the yellow fin tuna was cooked to perfection. Could not ask for a better dinner. Thank you Craven!!
I tried this on a whim, I was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and creative. The prices where realistic. The ambience was good; however, it was loud. We had a table behind me that was a group of locals where, we might as well sat with them and partaken in their dinner conversation.
247 Craven is worth the trip to New Bern, particularly if one enjoys seafood. The daily special was a blue crab cake with chili and sorghum grilled shrimp. All three of us ordered that, and it was delightful, if a bit pricy. The accompanying butternut squash was an outstanding addition to the seafood.
Our first visit to this restaurant, they sat us at the bar and then someone else told us the bar seating was reserved! We left a bit miffed. So, a month later, we're back with reservations. The service was a little slow. The servers seemed chaotic. Our meal took so long, they comp'd our drinks and desert. Not sure how often this happens. My steak was excellent but cold. My wife's pork tenderloin was fantastic. We'll go back eventually as the food tasted good. Hope they work out the kinks. What was supposed to be a relaxing Friday evening out turned in to a frustrating, long wait.
The food, service, and atmosphere at 247 Craven were outstanding. My wife had the grilled soft shell crab and grouper and I had the roasted scallops with tasso gravy and creamy grits + sautéed greens. Both dishes were exquisitely prepared and beautifully presented. Our server was knowledgeable and skilled (Gabby). We drive from the beach to dine at 247 Craven (about 45 minutes) and it is well worth the trip. Highly recommended!
Tiny place - about a dozen tables - no special ambiance but the food was interesting and well prepared. The service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. There are 2 or 3 steps up to the front door so it is not handicapped accessible, but there is a handrail. We enjoyed the hummus made with boiled peanuts and served with house-made fried pork-rinds - the most tasty way to serve boiled peanuts I've had. The soft-shelled crab with grouper special was excellent as was the fried green tomato and goat cheese appetizer. For dessert go with the strawberry cake.
