Great Restaurant! The service was good. I definitely recommend the Fish Platter. There is a relaxing and calming atmosphere. You should visit here for a Getaway.

Morton’s is the perfect throwback restaurant; it has the look and vibe of the great seafood restaurants of yesteryear in West End, (New Orleans) that were destroyed in Katrina. Food is basic and delicious. Eating there this week we had boiled crawfish, perfectly seasoned and...the best soft shell crab I have had in years. The soft shell crabs are lightly fried so the crabmeat is not overpowered by the breading. The crabmeat was delicious. Oh, did I mention pricing? It is a fraction of what you pay at a seafood restaurant in New Orleans proper and is just a 55 minute drive away, across the Causeway.More

We were in Mandeville and looking for a good place to eat. The cashier at a local drugstore recommended Morton's so we made the drive to Madisonville and we were not disappointed. Naven, our waiter, did an excellent job. We had grilled oysters that were...great, dungeness crabs, and snow crabs and i recommend all three. definitely going back.More

Four of us went for Sunday lunch. All plates including fried shrimp and oysters, seafood gumbo and seafood salad was very good. They were out of the soft-shell crab. The service was good, price OK and atmosphere good. I would have preferred a broiled choice...with sauces but that was not available.More

I'm glad you had a nice lunch. Please ask your server or manager-we can surely broil several options.

John was our waiter and he was very good and attentive. Salad good and fresh. Appetizer of fried eggplant with marinara was great. Fried oysters and shrimp were excellent. Ex-New Orleanians back for a visit and we’ll return if our schedule allows.

We were in the area looking at houses on a Sunday afternoon. Realtor suggested going here. We had seafood gumbo and crab bisque. Both were very good. Gumbo lacked much seafood but was very tasty. Specials looked good and prices seemed reasonable so we will...be back for sure.More

We went as a large family group of 5 adults and a year old twins for an occasion very special to us. The locale is a favorite of the family for many reasons and this restaurant is the one we eat at when we are...in the area. The appetizers and the entrees were great, and there was something appropriate for the little ones too. Not to forget the quality of the service - the waitress was good and very considerate to our specific needs. Good place to go with family and friends and you cannot beat the location - the Tchefuncte Riverfront.More
