“Much more than a deli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Deli is an understatement. An amazing selection of prepared foods: Salmon, shrimp and pecan chicken salads; Pad thai salad; Aunt Bessie's cole slaw; red pepper and crab soup; gazpacho with watermelon; poached salmon with hollandaise and crab cakes.

They prepare hot and sandwiches to go or to eat at outside tables. Great salad bar and exceptional sushi. Comprehensive selection of cheeses and wine. Mouthwatering pastries. Always new and delicious additions - last week I spotted blini and imported mozzarella di bufalo.

Staff are always happy to help and to offer a sample.

“Nice respite from shopping.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

My friend took me here to get a bite to eat. I thouht, "Really? I'm going to get somethng to eat in a market?!" Let me tell you...yes! Yes, it is a market, not a supermarket. A large portion of it is dedicated to take home foods that they make right there. There are daily hot specials and gourmet salads for sandwiches. I like the chutney chicken salad on wheat bread. I pick up a specialty soda, and we sit outside at a table that gives you the feeling of a bistro. If it is too hot, there are some (very few) seats inside in the attached bakery. Yes, bakery! The choices are vast and yummy. Try it sometime!

“Great Gourmet Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Morton's is the go to for great meat and seafood. But along with that they have an amazing selection of salads and take away food for those days you just don't feel like cooking from scratch. Although the store is stocked with great items to make a gourmet meal. Can be touch (and expensive) to find staples, but they have them. Great bakery with deish pastries!

“Morton's never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I stop in Morton's a couple of times a month. I usually get a salad bar dinner and something already prepared for my husband. The soups and chili are awesome, plus I always end up buying something from one of their many other departments.

“A Foodie's Destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The butcher recommended the marbled pork chops and no word of a lie, these were the best we have ever eaten. Terrific prepared cold salads. Great take-away prepared food. We chose the crab cakes and they were great! And we live in a fishing town and make our own so that is saying something. Grab a piece of pizza and enjoy the sun during lunch. Lots of interesting specialty grocery items. Friendly and helpful staff.
