Persimmons Waterfront Restaurant is a locally-owned small business, and we pride ourselves on creating a positive impact on the New Bern community and our local NC farmer community as well. We are committed to using local and sustainable ingredients whenever possible, and we purchase over 80% of our produce, herbs, meats, and seafood from local NC farmers within a 90-mile radius. We believe this makes a huge difference in the product we bring to your table, and we hope you enjoy the quality of the food we serve!
In addition to using local, sustainable ingredients in our food, we also designed our building with sustainability in mind. Our heating and air conditioning is done with an efficient geothermal system, our lighting fixtures are energy efficient, we installed waterless urinals low-flow bathroom fixtures, and we also maintain a recycling program.

Our goal is to be as responsible as possible and make a positive impact on our community around us.
