My only complaint on this
My only complaint on this visit was that my potatoes and vegetables both came out cold. To their credit, they did bring me fresh potato. The menu is diverse and although it is a bit on the pricey side, they certainly provide plenty of food from bread, salad to the entree being generous. The desserts are HUGE.

J Morgan's Steakhouse is a
J Morgan's Steakhouse is a great place to go for a special occasion. Prompt and friendly service. The steaks were done as requested, and were tender and flavorful. They serve a delicious, warm, garlic-topped, seasoned bread.

Great place to celebrate in VT
We always enjoy celebrating a special event with our "Norwich University Cadet" at
J. Morgan's Steakhouse. The atmosphere is vibrant, and the food is really great!

Went to J Morgans for my wife's birthday. We drove down from Colchester and had a very good time.
Food and Service was very good.....it took a little while to get use of the trains :-) Only disappointment
was that we mentioned a few times that we were their to celebrate a birthday and nothing special was

You always get a lot for what
You always get a lot for what you pay for at J Morgans. The service is always attentive but not intrusive. The food is always good - salads and desserts are great but I always wish they put more seasoning on the items on the entree plate. If they just put more salt and pepper on their steaks, salt on the onion straws, and salt on the lyonnaise potatoes it would take the food to the next level. But, if you want a steak in central VT then this is the place to go!

The steaks were melt-in-your-mouth...you won't be disappointed. The plate portions are generous and it is wise to share a dessert as they are huge (and not inexpensive.) But overall, a nice special occasion evening. Note: when the Legislature is in session, the bar patrons (elected, staffers and lobbyists) can be loud.

I found my food to be dry with little taste. The others in my party were happy with their food. The service was outstanding.

A place for friends to gather
J Morgan is the place we gather with friends to catch up and spend time together. A perfect location for all of us to gather as we come from different locations in Vt. It is our "go to " place.

Never disappointed and always excellent food. Best Lamb I have ever had!
5/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The steak was great. Cooked to perfection. Worth every penny. Creamed spinach was odd because the spinach was not chopped up. I don't believe expensive wines are worth the money but the waitress suggested wines that were on sale, (about half price), and that earned her a higher tip. French fries were lackluster but edible. I am going for the baked potato the next time. My wife's mashed potatoes were very good. Desert was massive and we had to take half home.

Came for a graduation dinner
Came for a graduation dinner with me family (who are all hard to please) and we LOVED it! Food, drinks, service all were amazing. Yummy yummy yummy!
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
As usual our meal was wonderful. I had my stand by, rack of lamb, cooked exactly as ordered, medium rare. My husband tried something new for him, Pork wrapped in bacon. We both enjoyed everything from the wonderful house salad to our cocktails and everything in between. The waiter, who we have had wait on us many times (older gentlemen) was, as always, a true gem, knowledgable and attentive. The only drawback this visit was that the noise level was WAY over the top. We won't go back at 6:30 on a Saturday evening again. We did notice that the noise level was much better by 8:00 pm.

My wife and I came here for an anniversary dinner. Everything was excellent. We made a reservation and were seated immediately. The fried calamari appetizer was very good. The house salads are quite different with gorganzola and olives. Next time i think I'll opt for the wedge or caesar. The prime rib was awesome. My wife had the fillet wrapped in bacon and loved it. I think the best part of the meal was dessert - the J Morgans mud pie with Ben and Jerry's coffee ice cream!

Not much to choose from in
Not much to choose from in Montpelier! At least not for dinner. Sat on the front patio. Enjoyable meal. Good steak. The specialty vanilla strawberry cake is good for two to share, but may be a little overrated.

I visited Montpelier mid June for the O'Carolan Music Festival in Worcester. This was a busy week end with a lot of events taking place in the town. I was very impressed, as were those who dined with me ( we were a group of six) with the table location, the choice on the menu and with the efficiency of our waiter - I believe his name was Jose. The food was wonderful. All in all a very enjoyable experience and I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Open Table is a great system whereby you can reserve and get immediate confirmation. Thank you.

Our waiter was absolutely
Our waiter was absolutely outstanding. Josh greeted us at our table and recited the entire list of specials and never once referred to any prompts. Josh was very professional however presented in a down home friendly manner. Josh was on top of the entire meal and our service at all times. We were truly blessed to have Josh as our waiter. Our meal was very very good. The hostess Cindy provided us with a piece of cake at the end of the meal as it was my our 44 wedding anniversay. The cake was also very good.

J Morgan's was a great Father's
J Morgan's was a great Father's Day treat. Our server was attentive to our needs and the food was fresh and good.
My only complaint would be they have a second chef for preparing omelets and waffles as this slowed the buffet service down with only one chef. He was exceptionally busy during service, but was always smiling and helpful.
I would go again.

The food is always excellent at J Morgan's Steakhouse! Compared to other restaurants who give much smaller portions for higher prices, the menu offers a great value for the quality you get. The Bashara family does an fine job! They are a true asset to our community.

good ambiance, lighting, service, selection, bar and food.

My husband and I are doing a driving tour of the New England states and we stayed in Montpelier. I saw reviews for this restaurant and decided to give it a try. What a great decision. We ate outside on the patio, very friendly staff, and the food was out of this world. I had Filet Mignon and my husband had Prime Rib. So tender you could cut it with a fork. Absolutely the best meal we have had in years. If I had to say anything negative there was a group of people sitting next to and behind us drinking, they were a little loud and annoying. I wish the staff would have asked them to sit at the bar inside because we couldn't really talk without leaning across the table. But the meal was so good I used talking time to eat.

Love this place
We had reservations for 5 and requested our regular table. Unfortunately when we arrived the table wasn't ready. We waited but then was offered another table for our party. We were seated at a table near the back, unfortunately this table is right under a speaker with loud music playing and a train running above it - back and forth. It made talking with our guest quite difficult.
Our salads and meals were wonderful and the garlic bread always hits the spot!
The Server was fabulous!

A statement on State Street
Usually the restaurant attached to the local hotel is less than stellar and relies upon a steady cadre of lost clientele to fill their seats nightly. J Morgans stands on it's own as a fine restaurant. The servers are pleasant and inviting even if a bit forgetful. The steaks and pastas are deliciously prepared, well seasoned and nicely presented. Excellent house drinks start the guest off right. Enjoy!

Wonderful as always!
Our family took visitors from out of town to dinner at J. Morgans. Our visitors were impressed by the interior, enjoyed the knowledgable waiter, Josh and loved the food! Josh went above and beyond, and Rod served wonderful drinks as always!
An excellent meal!

We went to J Morgan's for our Anniversary. I had asked when I made the reservation for a booth. When we arrived they wished us Happy Anniversary and seated us at a nice corner booth. Our dinner was excellent and our waiter met all our needs. We will definitely be back very soon.

The service and the food were terrific. The waitress was attentive without being overbearing, prompt without making us feel rushed. We have always been pleased with the food quality.

We were visiting with family
We were visiting with family in Vermont and everyone recommended J Morgan's Steakhouse as a must. We have to agree. We both ordered one of the nightly specials a grilled veal chop. The chop was cooked to perfection! They also have an excellent wine list. This is not just a steakhouse, the menu is quite extensive. We are all ready looking forward to our next visit to Vermont!

a really good restaurant
We dine here occasionally, and this time, things were as good as ever. They were a little late in seating us, despite having a reservation, but once seated, the service was terrific! This place has an extremely large menu, and the food is really good. I enjoyed the chicken francaise, which was very moist and delicious. Fried clam appetiser was a generous portion, and NOT greasy. One of the dessert offerings is a Napoleon: puff pastry, fresh berries, sweet cream, stacked about 10" high. It is wonderful, but definitely enough for 4-6 people. the pastry is flaky and not too sweet, but the fruit and cream--oooh to die for.
the decor is weird, and thus lower rating for ambiance. modern fixtures don't go with the model trains.

flexible cooperative staff
I had made reservations for five after a funeral just down the street. At the funeral reception we invited another friend who was there alone, and when we arrived at the restaurant they gladly set another place.
I had asked for a quiet corner as we're all over 65 and some of us hard of hearing. They gave us a round table in its own corner, just right.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time and the food was wonderful! This was our first visit and won't be our last. There are too many choices on the menu to miss out on!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yes, but as always the noise level is high, tho still a romantic place to have dinner with the one you love, or just a friend for a special night out... go later and the noise level decreases a bit and catch a show across the street.

Very good food, our server
Very good food, our server Mary was absolutely wonderful and her service was great!! Of course we'll do it again.

Great dinner in Montpelier!
Food was excellent, steaks were perfectly prepared, tender and flavorful. Had the porcini-rubbed ribeye, and my husband had bone-in T-bone, delicious. Salads were fresh and interesting. My son had the lobster mac-n-cheese, rich, big chucks of lobster (unusual in a steakhouse). Actually the menu was very diverse, not just steaks. Wine list was notably good, wide variety of prices and varietals.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was great in every way. The bread, the salad, the entrees are exceptional! It is so nice to have a salad included with your dinner, many restaurants are charging extra for this, and the Greek salad that was includes was outstanding! The service and cocktails were great too! We will be back!!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best restaurant ever.
My son goes to Norwich University and he went there with a friend and his family and fell in love with your steakhouse and wanted me to try it for ourselves. It was the best steak we have ever had! It was like butter! Tender and juicy, tasteful. perfection. The bread that you served with the salads was so delicious. Wanted to bring some home to Chicago, by the case full! I would go back in a second if I lived there. I will tell everyone here how wonderful your place is!

Great 22nd Anniversary dinner!
The good - Fantastic food! Upscale menu choices and overall, a touch pricey, but not outrageous. Ribeye was prepared perfectly and ever so tender. Accouterments were very flavorful and nicely matched in portion and palette compliment. Great evening with my wife!
Could be improved - Menu was somewhat busy and some items were easily overlooked (having looked at the online menu ahead of time). Dining room was somewhat noisy, but we were seated near large dinner party. Service was timely, albeit our particular server, when attending our table, seemed a bit aloof - we weren't made to feel like we were particularly appreciated having chosen this restaurant. Special requests made during reservation were not acknowledged.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Morgan's had been recommended ,by a friend...for our 10th anniversary, we decided to try it...the food, and service, were outstanding..will definitely be back, and will recommend it to our friends, and family....
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was ok, although thought the sired steak and noodles I thought was a bit overpriced. More like a 18.00 meal then a 27.00 priced meal, which my friend got the prime rib which was a big sized steak for a dollar more. Waiter was good, although spilled the steak sauce on to the table of my friends plate that almost went on her. Thank god for quick nerves she moved before it got on her. Would have thought they would do something to make up it, but did not. Otherwise not a bad meal.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wife and I went here with some friends. The Apps where fantastic and so was our Filet. The Blue Cheese and Carmelized Onions on top where great. the Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes where amazing. the Fred's Style Shrimp where spicy but tasted great. i would highly recommend this to friends for a nice date night, i would also recommend for kids due to the noise level and the motorized Train that runs around the bar. we will be back.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I selected this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. It was everything we wanted and more. The food was unbelievable and the service was friendly and unobtrusive. We would certainly love to return here for future meals.
