Worst service I’ve ever had. I went here to get lunch for my 2 children and was terribly disappointed by the service. Staff disorganized, didn’t even get to eat the food I ordered. Usually a manager or an owner solves problems. In this case the...owner, Dave, created them Plenty of better, cleaner, friendlier places in Morrison where they actually appreciate customers.More

Mr. Murphy - When you arrived at our restaurant (walk up ice cream window), we had our computer fail - something that was out of our control. When that happens, it can certainly cause a restaurant to be a little disorganized at the onset, but...More

Stopped in here the other morning for breakfast and so glad I did, was greeted by a friendly smile and promptly seated. The menu choices are accommodating for all taste palettes and appetites, they have something for everyone and I was happy with their vegetarian...choices so I had the Emerald Scramble a dish filled with tastiness and flavor served with sweet potato home fries and sourdough toast, I also had a coffee and large OJ. The service and food are well worth the stop and can’t wait to stop in for lunch the next time, great atmosphere and overall really enjoyed it.More

The three stars are for the friendly service my sister and I received ordering coffee at the takeout bar. We parked in the restaurant’s lot and wanted to take a quick walk through Morrison afterwards. As we walked away from the restaurant, a man parked...in the lot in a red pick up truck rolled down his window, threatened us, and said he would report us to the towing company because we were walking away from the premises (Customer parking only- which, we were!). He said he would ensure our car wasn’t there when we returned. If you end up at the Cow, I hope you don’t encounter this individual. We certainly won’t be returning.More

My wife and I stopped here for breakfast. The food was good and had a nice selection at reasonable prices. The waitstaff was efficient but not very friendly.

My takeout experience was horrible. I had called in my order and drove to the Cow Eatery, parked and went to the counter. I paid and one part of my order was ready, but the other part wasn't and they said they'd call my name....It was very hot outside and I had my mask on while I waited. I watched one lady, 2 couples and another lady place orders at the window and pick up their food and leave, but my name still hadn't been called. Since I was so hot and about to pass out, I went back up to the window to ask where my order was. It wasn't ready, so I asked to have my money refunded because I was about to pass out. Rather than the employee asking me if I was okay or needed some water, she told me I was only waiting 12 minutes. This was completely false. One of the patrons that ordered their food after me and got their food and left before me actually commented to me- "Sorry you've had to wait so long". Once I got home I called in to let the manager know about my experience, but didn't realize the manager was actually the person that was not helpful at the takeout window. She offered no apology and was argumentative. Worst customer service experience I've ever had and I'm still hungry since I didn't get any food. Will never go back and will tell all my friends they shouldn't go either.More

After posting a very negative review on Father's Day, I contacted management and described our upset over being turned away from breakfast at 11:01am last Sunday. Management explained their current issues dealing with Covid-19 and need for better communication from their staff, and made a...very generous offer for us to give them another try. We did so today, again after hiking the Lair o the Bear, close by. We ordered take-out breakfast burritos and a kid's plate of pancakes. We were not disappointed, and our breakfast was wonderful.More

Yummy food in the heart of Morrison. We stopped in during the heart of COVID reopening in June and sat outside with a party of seven. We gobbled up the appetizers before I could think to take pictures. The Cheese curds, mushroom tempura and crack...a Lackin did not disappoint. We went on to share the mango goat cheese salad - delicious! The kids some the meatball sub and some fancy Mac n cheese and amazing fruit and everyone was happy. They also have a full bar with great drink and wine choices.More

Good is generally good but service during Covid crisis was terrible for us. Two windows once for orders ... one for pickups. Pickup window was empty. Waited 10 minutes while people ordered and picked up orders from one person. Ordered food with Ketchup, mustard, onions...and pickles. No condiments on burgers OR in the bag. No salt, pepper. Burgers not marked as to how they were cooked. Be careful that your order is as you specified.More

At our last visit there was outside seating/eating available. I would imagine that a pooch outside wouldn't be a problem, but obviously this would be up to the management.

We offer a gluten friendly menu. There is a lot of opportunity for cross contamination in our kitchen, so we cannot be completely gluten free. We offer GF breads and have a variety of salads as well.
