Great community asset!

The food is consistently good, the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. Our town is fortunate to have a great restaurant providing good food, community gatherings, and a social meeting place.

The Tilapia and asparagus was awesome, and the staff were very sweet! Everyone had a great time and if you just want to watch a game (or election results) it is good for that as well.

Morello's is great for any functions, including weddings, plays, birthdays and so on. The staff are friendly and the locals will have a chat. Great place to go for a delicious meal or to take in some music.

I have been here twice while visiting family and both were very disappointing. I swore I'd never go back after the first, but decided to give it one last shot. The second time was just as bad as the first. Slow service doesn't begin to describe our experience. It took over an hour and a half to get our food.... More

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.
