My husband and I came to have dinner together. There was not many people in the restaurant at the time. The sign said please wait to be seated so we waited and waited. About 2 minutes later a waitress said that the hostess was sitting down that she would be right with us. We waited about another 2 minutes. In... More

Food is really good with a nice variety. Salads are good but a bit pricey for what you get. Lunch through the week has a nice buffet. I recommend the family Greek salad. It is a huge bowl with fresh baked bread. It is great for a couple to enjoy.

Quite a large venue - can accommodate large groups. One was in progress while we were dining recently on a Wednesday evening. In spite of that, we received good service. Other than the large group seated outside, the restaurant wasn't especially busy during the early dining hours. That made it hard to account for the food taking quite a while... More

Accommodated our large group. Drinks were served quickly and refilled often. Nice variety of dishes on buffet, from soup and salad to pizza, chicken tenders, meat loaf, mashed potatoes, dressing, corn, green beans and more. All good quality and flavorful. Recommended highly!

We arrived with a very large group of friends, and they had allocated a separate room for us, which was great. We all sat round one huge table which was excellent. The service was really good....with the waiting staff really caring and helpful. The food was above average in my opinion, and all in all, this was a wonderful dining... More

Morello's has a very diverse menu offering sandwiches, pizza, and American and Italian favorites. One of my favorites is the Strawberry Orange Salad with Breaded Chicken. Ask for focaccia bread with your meal, it is absolutely the best!

My wife and I were on our trike and were joined on this visit with another couple traveling on their motorcycle. Unfortunately, on the Saturday night we visited Morello's, the motorcycle parking in front of the restaurant was completely blocked by pickup truck and trailer (the band that was playing on the patio never bothered to move their vehicle after...
