The tiny restaurant decor is slightly tired but the food makes up for it. Great front bar section filled on a Fri. night with patrons enjoying the live music. Onto the food: The 2 starters, the 2 mains, and the side were all delicious. The kitchen accommodated dairy and gluten intolerance perfectly. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Baby Romaine... More

We dined at the M Restaurant a few months ago and it was a divine experience. The restaurant staff treated us so wonderfully, always asking if we needed anything else, etc. They were very professional. And you can tell when it's genuine. Their seasonal menu was superb as well. We brought Miss America 2016 Betty Cantrell to dine there after... More

M has such an inviting, cozy feel, a really nice bar area and a pretty main dining room. We liked the menu choices. The food itself was good, but nothing special, and the service was not up to par. For example, we finished our bottle of wine, declined another but wanted to order some glasses, and our waitress never came... More

visited last night and was well pleased about this place. Food was delicious and presented nicely, Waiter (Steve) could not do enough for us.this place just should not be missed! Portions a little on the small side, but flavor and presentation got an "A". Can't wait to go back. Outside area looked inviting also - weather permitting!

We booked a month in advance on Open Table and requested a "quiet table" since we were celebrating our anniversary. We had never dined there but were staying next door at the Morris House Hotel (2nd time and we LOVE it!!!). Arrived at 8:03 and were sat right away. Apparently, the "inaugural Beer Garden Festival" was being kicked off that... More

We had the most scrumptious dinner at the M Restaurant while staying at The Morris House Hotel. Our two entrees were the scallops and the red snapper. Both were so delicious that we didn't want to eat the last bite! Topped off with pecan pie. Great service and attractive dining room and bar. A little gem of a restaurant. I

We went last night with another couple and it started with the prettiest picture. Lights were on the trees in the outdoor patio. It was so quaint. The restaurant is small but the food was delicious! We had snapper, salmon and short rib. Oh and Brussels sprouts and the potatoes at gratin (both fantastic). Can't wait to go back and... More

I was staying at the Morris House Hotel and only gravitated to the bar at the M Restaurant (their in-house restaurant) because it offered a complimentary glass of wine to hotel guests. As time passed, the bartender and I discovered our mutual love of photography and I decided to have bar bites for dinner. I love Brussel sprouts, but their... More

Beautiful restaurant in part of an old hotel. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. Very nice menu choices and the sides were enough to share among 3 or 4 people. The waitress gave good recommendations and told us we were ordering more than necessary. Very good overall experience.

Thank OldBob22
