While food halls in the Triangle seem to be pretty trendy right now, it was the Morgan Street Food Hall that started it all! Located in the popular Raleigh Warehouse District, the Morgan Street Food Hall is conveniently located off of Morgan Street and near the soon to be Pendo Headquarters. If you stop in at the Morgan Street Food Hall you’ll have about 18 different food choices along with a lively indoors/outdoors bar. And from what I’ve seen, it’s a good mix of popular stand-bys along with some newer dining options along with some axe-throwing. But color me impressed overall! From dinner to dessert, you’ll probably find something you like here!
I’d recommend visiting in off-hours (any time outside of 11:30 to 1:30 and 5:30 to 7:30pm) since the place is super popular right now. Parking is tough in the area, but there is some street parking along with some parking structures in this popular district. After I’m able to visit a restaurant, I’ll give it a star rating and short description. It’s a tough job but somebody has gotta do it, I’ve included menus when available to help you get a better understanding of prices and food options at the Morgan Street Food Hall! And if you’re curious about the Transfer Co. Food Hall on the other side of town, details here!
Aunt Betty’s Gin and Absinthe Bar: 4 1/2 Stars
A great-looking speak-easy tucked behind a plain door on Morgan Street. Fun cocktails and decor for some casual conversation and drink!

Cousins Maine Lobster
Cousins Maine Lobster menu: 4 Stars
The food truck turned food stall has done a great job here with its lobster rolls. In fact, it may even be better eating their food indoors with AC so a big thumbs-up from me!
Cow Bar menu: 4 and 1/2 stars
A fun and delicious spot for a decadent and flavor-filled burger! Great selection of fries as a side, choose from Original, Italiano and Truffle. Just be aware that service can be a bit uneven and slow.

Makus Empanadas menu: 3 1/2 Stars
A pretty quick meal of empanandas and S. American basics (black beans, rice, salad) will keep you happy here. Love the variety of baked empanadas here, they are light and crunchy but not super filling.
Oak City Fish & Chips
Oak City Fish & Chips Menu: 2 1/2 Stars
Unfortunately, Oak City Fish & Chips has some serial service issues even with such a small menu. Running out of seafood items on the menu, slow cook times, lack of condiments, the staff needs better training and more kitchen help. The food is decent once you get it but not worth the stress.

The Arbor and Garden Bar
The Arbor and Garden Bar: 3 1/2 Stars
A decent bar with reasonable prices but service has been slow the handful of times I have been here, even in off-hours. Fingers crossed they get better with time and experience.
The Bowls menu: 4 Stars
A pan-Asian eatery offering rice bowls, poke bowls and small plates with Japanese, Chinese and Korean flavors. A good deal for the money, don’t miss the bulgogi egg rolls!
