“A pleasant place for dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

We went with friends from the area who said this was their favorite place in Morris and we enjoyed it, too. The food was good and the service was very nice.

“Probably best restaurant in Morris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

If you carefully read the menu and select, you can get good cooking and presentation. We avoid fried foods at all restaurants and seek out grilled or baked. We have dined here with family about 4 times a year the past 5 years and have enjoyed the experience.

“Food here is very inconsistent and expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Have been here about six times and had one good experience. The service is ok but the food is not always what it should be when you are charging twenty to thirty dollars per person. Sometime the food is cold we have had cold soup, cold potatoes, and cold or lukewarm entrees. This place is hit or miss if you are willing to take a chance and do not mind dropping $80 to $100 for a meal with wine that could be good or could be terrible this is your place.

“Very friendly service, good food, great wines!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

We've been to Chapin's several times and love the food and atmosphere. We've never had a bad meal there, and the wine list is extensive. A gem in the small town of Morris!

If you're in the area, it's definitely worth a shot!
