My wife and I decided years ago that instead of buying gifts for each other on our anniversary we would enjoy a nice steakhouse. We tried several in the area and found Morton's to be the best. Here is why: Each year we receive a menu with our names printed on them and Happy Anniversary. They take our picture and... More

Steak was tasty and tender. Not worth 50 bucks. The rest of the meal was ok. You can get the same for much less at other places

Seemed to have a nice happy hour crowd, but we got there too late to enjoy. Had no trouble getting a table as it was a week night, but I would call ahead with a big group. Great steak, Au Gratin potatoes, and creamed spinach.

I'll admit that Mortons was not our first choice last Saturday namely because I've had bad experiences at their other locations. Still it was the only "nice" restaurant we could get in on a crowded Saturday night. Yet we all left satisfied as the service was great and the food more than up to the task. We all ordered steaks,... More

My son always wants to go here for his b day so we did. The meat was good as always but our server was not nice. He had an attitude that started to show when he asked if we would have wine and we said no. He lost interest from there on. He made me feel uncomfortable, like we didnt... More

Consistency among the many Morton's throughout the US never disappoints. Whether grabbing a quick dinner at the bar, happy hour, or a long dinner meeting with clients I know I can count on Morton's! Quality food and diverse wine selection.

Morton's are usually quite good but our evening was a disappointment. While the server was somewhat attentive it took a very long time for food to arrive - about 20 minute for the appetizers and another hour (yes a full hour) for the main course. The worst was the manager letting the server take the heat - though they comp'd... More
