The setting is worth it all!

This was our 4th trip to Morgan Creek Grill. We were there with 2 other couples at our suggestion. My husband and 2 others had the Pecan Encrusted Flounder, excellent by their review! I had the petite filet and fried shrimp(small portion) it was delicious! Not sure what the negative reviews... read more

My wife and I went here for drinks and light snacks. Views are beautiful but the food was very mediocre. I would not recommend this restaurant there are too many other great locations

We chose Morgan Creek Grill for our anniversary dinner based on recommendations from some acquaintances. It is an attractive place but there was really nothing special about it. I had the crab ravioli with butternut squash cream and it was okay. My husband had the grilled pork chop which was also just okay. Our server was pleasant when he was... More

We have been here twice. Once during a visit in early 2015 and again since we moved here last winter. Both visits were good but they were different. Our first visit we had a romantic dinner in the downstairs "formal" dining room. Very romantic, table by the window overlooking the water. We had the she crab soup and the scallop... More

We always ask for Susan who serves upstairs during the week. She is an excellent server. For some reason the food at Morgan Creek seems better during the day than it does at night in the main dining room. We have been disappointed at dinner lately.

The dining experience is a B- if you plan on sitting inside. I live on the island and don't know anyone that goes there for great food. EXCEPT! THEY HAVE OYSTER ROASTS DURING THE SEASON AND ARE FANTASTIC! The oyster roasts are on Saturday's and begin at 4pm. Get there early if you want a table. They are very fun... More

Found this place while wondering around the island looking for a late lunch/early dinner. Only upstairs was open for dining, which was ok and good views of the waterway and boats. Seating and tables weren't real attractive. I ordered a turkey melt w/ roasted tomatoes, spinach and havarti cheese - not such a good choice! It was sliced,salty, cheap deli... More

The food here is ok but the service was to so good. We were seated next to a large table that had obviously been drinking for some time, like maybe breakfast. They were drunk, and rowdy, and very very loud. We could not hear ourselves talking nor could we hear what the waiter was saying. He did absolutely nothing about... More

Had a very nice dinner there tonight. Very nice staff, and the food came pretty quickly. Great place for a nice seafood dinner. Definitely recommend this one!

My husband and I found Morgan Creek Grill by chance last year while searching for an oyster roast while we were in town for the weekend. We loved it so much that we came back this year just for the oyster roast and brought along some friends. Everyone enjoyed the oyster roast. The oysters are by far the best I've... More
