After many delays, the new Morgan Street Food Hall is now open for business and business is booming! Thankfully I was able to get a couple of preview visits to Morgan Street Food Hall (MSFH) and get a feel for what was going in without having to fight the crowds. And from what I’ve seen, it’s a good mix of popular stand-bys along with some new dining options. But color me impressed overall! I’ll be working through the food and dining options at MSFH over the next several months so I’ll be updating this post over time!
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. 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!

Cousins Maine Lobster
Cousins Maine Lobster nenu: 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.
Mama Bird’s Cookies + Cream

MKG Kitchen Menu: 4 Stars
Same great Vietnamese eats that you can find at their other restaurant, Mekong in Morrisville. But given the smaller kitchen, doing a broad menu is more of a challenge here.
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.
Primal Cuts menu
Raleigh Mini Donuts
Raleigh Mini Donuts and Menu: 4 stars
Raleigh Raw Menu
Raleigh Rolls Menu
Sassool Select menu: 4 Stars
A Raleigh classic offering clean but tasty Mediterranean eats ranging from shawarma, wraps and salads.
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!
