We were in the area on vacation and went to this restaurant based upon the recommendation of our cabin owner. There were 6 of us for dinner. We had 2 kids meals, and four regular meals... Nothing extravagant. One of the kid's meals had two things wrong with it, the other had one thing wrong with it. One of our... More

Went to Morello's last night for dinner. Have been there a number of times in the past. The draw last night was the grilled prime rib special which is served on alternating Saturday evenings with ribeye on the opposite week. Prime rib is grilled like a fine steak and served with au jus, a salad, and one side. All meals... More

This is where everyone goes in the area, I think. Sorry, I can't remember what we ate, I should've reviewed right after we got home. We were happy enough to go back the 2nd night, though. Good food and service. Okay Malbec and Pinot Noir by the glass.

Menu is extensive and food is good. Staff is very friendly. Service is slow at times, especially during the evening hours. Outdoor seating area is very nice.

Morello's is obviously a local favorite because when we arrived it was very busy but not so much that we had to wait. The food was great with very generous portions. All of the employees were very friendly and our server was the best!!!

Morello's is an excellent restaurant. Recently had the blackened salmon with baked potato. Food was great, service is also great. However, their secret is the Fried Pickles appetizer. I have eaten fried pickles at much fancier places, but they don't measure up to Morello's. You will not be disappointed if you visit this fine establishment. Have also been here in... More

Ate there Friday night about 7:30 and were seated quickly. The waitress was with us in a couple of minutes to take drink orders and leave menus. My wife had the baked spaghetti and I had the lasagna. Both were very good. The focaccia bread, which is brought to every table, is outstanding. Very good meal and service with an... More
