    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.

Extensive craft beer menu and very decadent desserts. When we pulled in, the parking lot was packed. That's always a good sign of a great restaurant.

    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.

    I've been to MTG many times, but I took two friends who have never been. They both absolutely loved everything about MTG!! 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!

    It's an attractive restaurant and the food was unique and very flavorful. The service was very good with a knowledgeable waitress who was friendly yet not intrusive. Our food came out very quickly and was hot and delicious. The Chef himself came to our table to ask how things tasted and if we were enjoying our dinner. My husband and father-in-law enjoy different kinds of beer so there were many to choose from for them.

    Went for a belated wedding anniversary dinner. We have seen the restaurant traveling between work and home, we were excited to try. Loved the "Open table" booking. The atmosphere was like a random food stopover point somewhere on a long road trip. Food was fair to good, but for the prices being charged we expected MUCH better. "Dry" sums up the food! The flatbread appetizer, the chicken roulade, the bread pudding all lacking moisture. The shrimp and crab meat bites were really nice. The mustard brisket sandwich was excessively over-sauced! The free chips over seasoned. The bread pudding was burnt on the bottom. We are still talking about our experience, but not as might be wished. We plan a "do-over" on the anniversary meal ....elsewhere!

    After reading all these reviews - we thought we would give it a shot. Food - eh...service - not so great. Our food was definitely forgotten - in fact sat under a heat lamp for way too long. A medium hamburger - their special "baconeater" that could "never come back as anything but medium" (according to the waiter) - came back TWICE like a hockey puck. When I had the manager come over - she said she would speak to the kitchen and that was all we saw or heard from her. No apologies, no can we offer you anything else on the house. NOTHING. So in turn, I will NEVER give them my business again. It wasn't even crowded so there is no excuse for this type of service. EVER

    We have eaten at the Morris Tap and Grill many times, and each time it gets better! Delicious fig and Gorgonzola flatbread. Tender fabulous calamari to start. Then me husband and I had barbecue ribs. They were fall off the bone good, tender and tasty! We really love the way the French fries are prepared too! The back dining room is a bit too noisy, so if you want more quiet, ask for the Tree Room when you make a reservation. You definitely need a reservation on Saturday night. All in all a great restaurant with a varied menu. There's something for everyone!

    Went for our first visit last Friday eve. Restaurant busy as expected and we were seated right away. Our waiter Sebastian was very effective in showing us the elements of the menu. Good beer selection. Of particular note was the tuna tartare flatbread, the short rib sandwich, wings(yes the ghost pepper rub was the hottest wing I ever had!) and the calamari. All done very well. The only dish that did not please was the Grilled shrimp. The fried "croquette" was way too heavy and did not accompany the delicious shrimp too well. While the waiter was very good, he was a bit full of himself and pushed a bit too hard for us to fill out the comment card to say how great he was! We enjoyed it and will be back.

    My favorite thing about this restaurant is that there are half a dozen or more dishes that I've never seen anywhere else. And it's extremely rare that there are any ingredients on an "American" menu that I don't recognize; again, several! Ideal beer menu; varied but not overwhelming. Unique and delicious. Can be difficult to hold a conversation on a Saturday night because of the noise level.

    We've been to Morris Tap and Grill multiple times. The first time, honestly, we weren't impressed. For some reason, the beer list seemed uninspired and the food was so-so. Maybe it was us, or just an off night. I've been there 2x since (once to give it a fair second chance, and this time as a tie-breaker) and each has been very enjoyable. This time, Chef Eric Levine greeted us at the end of our meal and even provided his business card to we could contact him for any future concerns. As I've posted in other reviews, my fiancee's seafood allergies make dining out a challenge sometimes, and Chef Eric told us that a personal phone call will ensure she has adequate options (off-menu, if necessary) available for any of our future visits.

    We went for the mother's day buffet. It was good but not as good as when I've been there to order off the menu. Meat was dry, pasta was overcooked. But I guess that's to be expected at a buffet too. Normally I have an excellent experience.
