    Our first time at this casual dining restaurant and what a pleasant surprise. Food was really good - especially liked the crab and shrimp balls. Our server was excellent. Very welcoming and accommodating. A nice touch was having the chef/owner come by our table to chat about our experience. Will definitely go back.

    I don't understand why this place has gotten excellent reviews. It is noisy like a diner. We made a 6:30 reservation and were brought to a table in the back dining room where it was extremely noisy (lots of small children). No one approached our table for the next 15 minutes. My husband and daughter ordered burgers which were nicely done. My salmon was fair. I could tell that it was frozen salmon since I make salmon at least 2x per week and buy fresh. They have an excellent selection of beers as well.

    Such an interesting menu. And the food and service matched that. Visited o n a Tuesday night so we could talk with our friends. Restaurant about half full so it must be very energetic when full. Would definitely visit again soon. The short ribs were excellent.

    The draft and bottle list is second to none here in NJ. If you are a craft beer enthusiast, you HAVE TO check this place out. Do not be surprised when you get a hefty bill after the beer and food, but its so worth every penny!

    My wife and I visited Saturday night at 7pm. All parking spaces were full and were redirected to valet parking. Something wrong because there were many open tables. Issue is a large "bar crowd". Ordered appetizer, drinks, and dinner. Calamari was good but my wife order pumpkin soup, which never arrived. Reminded waiter, who brought it with her entree. I had the short rib sandwich, house specialty, that contained fat in the first bite. My wife had a pork loin dinner which looked like it was thrown on the plate with some chopped up potatoes. Overall, expensive and not worth the trip. Too many other great choices in the area to settle for this.

    Went for a casual dinner asked to sit far away from the bar. It did it matter as there was a loud birthday party next table. On the other hand the food was worth the trip. Great ribs and an even better turkey burger.

    Throughout the entire time, I thoroughly enjoyed the service, energy, and ambiance. I felt our food was okay, nothing to write home about. The ghost pepper wings were not that spicy, a little disappointing, and my steak roulade entree was very overcooked. I didn't complain though because the flavors were good, and it was a really busy night so I think my meal might've sat under the salamander a few minutes longer than ideal. My boyfriend's short rib sandwich was pretty good. Overall, I'd probably visit again but stick to the appetizers and burgers/sandwiches section of the menu.

    This was our first time at this restaurant. We had a reservation, but still had to wait a bit to get seated just because there was a line of people in front of us without reservations. They didn't take reservation people first or had a bad system of checking people in. Hostess seemed completely overwhelmed at her duties. Once at the table, it took almost 90 minutes to get our meals. The wing appetizers were delicious. My son's burger was very tasty. My husband and I ordered the short ribs, which were supposed to be a specialty. The short ribs were very dry with a burnt flavor. Overall, not a good experience.

    Went here for a small family celebration. The menu is very eclectic some Indian and Asian inspired dishes, some barbecue etc. we all ordered different meals. Not one of us liked our food. The Mac and cheese with pork was tasteless. It reminded me of the watery instant mac and cheese with some big pieces of barbecue pork thrown in. The mandarin style rice bowl dinner was so sakty it wasn't edible and the pasta with short rib was heavy floured gravy (also salty). Many better places in the area - won't go again.

    We had yet again an excellent meal! We were thrilled to see the stuffed meatball still on the menu and finally had the opportunity to have it! 3 out of the 6 ordered it and could believe how good and different it was!! They loved it! 2 out of group each had one of the Octobefest specials - both enjoyed them! Also, they LOVED the Caramel Apple Sangria!!! The first timers we brought really enjoyed themselves - couldn't believe how great the menu options were and the food was fantastic! They RAVED about the fried calamari - although we told them it was amazing!! Only issue was that we were disturbed the entire time by a table next to us who allowed their child to run around their table all night long and repeatedly bang into our table.

We will definitely go back to try some other choices. The bar was very busy, and would like to sit at the bar the next time. They have entertainment, which is a plus for us. All and all great night!

    My husband and I have been meaning to try MT&G for months as our friends are regulars and friendly with Chef Eric. We were pleasantly surprised by the great service, food and, most importantly, the extensive beer list. We have been looking for a good ginger beer and they had an incredible one from the UK. We are going back just for that beer alone! Our server was very helpful and attentive and our dinners were served right away. Both our dinners were very good and the dessert (peanut butter brownie sundae with salted caramel gelato) was fantastic. Chef Eric even greeted all the guests at their tables. We will be back!

    We have been to Morris Tap and Grill many times for both lunch and dinner. It never disappoints! The fried calamari is some of the best we've ever had. Delicious fig and Gorgonzola flatbread. My husband had the half chicken. It was moist and perfectly seasoned. I had the Chef Eric special Basa with mozzarella fish with broccoli. It was so delicious, that though I was so full from the apps, I ate it all!! Our server Sebastian was friendly, and attentive. Chef Eric always comes out of the kitchen to greet his diners. We highly recommend Morris Tap and Grill! Make sure you make a reservation on Friday and Saturday night if you don't want to wait a long time! Then Enjoy!!

    My husband & I went here on a whim when it first reopened & heard that a Chopped Champion was the new executive chef. Fell in love with the food. We have brought so many people back with us & suggest it to anyone that asked. Out of everything we have ever order, & my husband doesn't like to eat the same thing twice, there hasn't been one dish that wasn't delish! Everything is cooked to perfection & any little requests (sauce of the side, no mayo, extra veggies, bacon tacos) has been done without any complaints. And the fact that Chef Eric takes the time to come out & talk to you & make sure that you enjoyed everything is just one more little thing that goes a long way.

    This was my second time coming here and I am very pleased. Fish tacos were delicious. Fried calamari was the best I ever had. Good service, my only complaint was that it took too long for dessert and the check. Total time there was 2 hours which is a bit slow for courses in my opinion.

    Decided to come to the Morris Tap and Grill for the extensive list of beers they always have on tap and was great as usual! The buffalo chicken dip is always a winner for an appetizer and the specials on the menu were great as well! Our server took the time to tell us what food options would pair best with the beers that we selected as well.

    My wife and I really like this restaurant, and usually bring our adult children when they are available. The food is creative and tasty. We are going to not come as often as we have, as it is pricey. The service also constantly tries to sell. Asking for more expensive drinks, additional appetizer, desserts, espresso. I feel like they are trying to hard to sell and the bill is always higher than I want to spend for such a place.

    Traveling west on Route 10 around dinner hour has prevented our visits for years. So, at the end of August, one has a chance of getting to MTG from Parsippany Morristown area in a reasonable amount if time. The atmosphere reflects strongly on the overall experience. A Home Goods decked out middle class Denny's diner. Everything (food, service) was ok. The bar area was full of young people, filling a void in this neighborhood. They have quite an extensive beer menu. A good place to meet east & west Morris County friends when there's no traffic.

    This was our first time and very enjoyable. My husband loved the extensive beer menu, especially the IPA week specials. We had the deconstructed caesar (nothing special), the short ribs pappardelle and the pork slab mac and cheese. Our entrees were excellent and piping hot. The desserts looked and sounded amazing but we didn't get any. The house made chips were a little over seasoned.

    We dined on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was very busy. The menu offers many options from burgers to entrees like Salmon. I was very pleased with the salad selections which included a deconstructed ceasar. The bar menu was good and one family member ordered a flight of bourbon for tasting,which was fun. I recommend it.

They also especially greatly appreciated our server - they raved about how wonderful and helpful he was. Both can't wait to return to explore everything on the menu - the one said she was simply blown away with the presentation alone of everything! Thanks for a great night; once again!
