We went to Morse' expecting their usual delicious food. We didn't get it. The haddock dinner is comprised of chunks of haddock that were not fresh and that tasted as if they were previously frozen. We were expecting a nice fillet of fresh haddock. The...More

Just had lunch there recently and wasn't to satisfied with the fake prossessed chicken on my salad. So patrons beware of this. Also charged $7 extra what a shame.

I had lobster stew, not quite like my grandmother used to make, but close enough and definitely tasty, paired with a nouveau salad that grannie never would have made (mustard pickles instead) but I very much enjoyed. Good food in a friendly casual atmosphere.

Location is nice, bar had a island feel. As for food, its ok- can't screw up lobster too much, nachos were pretty good. Reservations is reco, btw all- few places for dinner on Bailey island, so ease to get there is its biggest positive.

Sadly we don't grill outside at this location as there isn't space. Our wharf is beautiful spot for a Shipwrecked Margarita though even without a grill. Hope to see you soon!
