I haven't been out too much during this pandemic, but I miss dining out at J. Morgans. We were lucky enough to get a seat at the bar, and was pleasantly surprised that each set of bar stools was surrounded by plexiglass. Our dinner was amazing, we both had steak. The salad alone was a meal, and the atmosphere is always pleasant. For just a little while it was nice to dine out. Thank you!
best restaurant. we make a point to go there everytime we are in town!!
The food, as always, was exceptional however the service was horrible. It took 45 minutes to get our appetizers, it took an average of 20-25 minutes to get beverages and kept hearing that the bar was backed up yet there was no one behind the bar.
Will go back because of the food but the service was extremely slow especially when it wasn’t overly crowded.
Birthday get together
We had a great time, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was so much fun. It is awesome that we can once again eat inside at the restaurant. We missed all of the staff. We’ll be back (probably at least weekly). Thank you for allowing everyone to relax, enjoy ourselves and get to escape from the worries of the week!
Our waitress, Gretchen was personalized and outstanding.
Very slow service from the bar, waited over 20 minutes for our 1st glass of wine.
Bartender was to busy socializing.... wasn't very organized
Our waiter was fantastic and couldn't stop apologizing for the bar
It’s a very small relaxing nice place. The food was delicious and the prices are not bad for the quality of the food. Definitely recommend this place for a nice casual meal.
Food is outstanding, service is terrible. Excuse after excuse why nothing is the fault of the server. 15 mins to get a drink from the bar, appetizers and entrees arriving 5 mins apart then no butter, no sour cream, no salt, no pepper and no bernaise (though all had been requested at the time of the order) ...etc. When the server is asked...its all either due to Covid or the kitchen/bars fault. Then...to finish it off, server dropped off the check and went home. Only found this out by waiting 15 mins the going to the bar where they told me she was gone and had transferred the check to the bar for payment Having been a server and managed hotels/restaurants....I can easily say that server is on of the laziest, most careless and uninterested I have ever encountered. The best food in the world is useless with a server like that on the floor treating guests so horribly.
Although a pricier option in the Montpelier area the food is go
This was my friends and my second visit to J. Morgan's. They have the best salads either of us has ever had. Huge! Gigantic pieces of cake! The servers are gracious and friendly. We love it and will be back again soon.
Haven’t been in 6 months. First place we visited together since COVID shutdown. As always, great food and a really safe and pleasant experience.
The carrot cake was excellent. I should have had that first!
Always fantastic! We eat there whenever in town! Great steak and lobster Mac n cheese
As always a pleasure to be at. Service is great. Food excellent as always. A home away from home.
The food was great, took a little long but it came out warm and yummy! It was out anniversary and the desert plate we received was great! Gretchen was fabulous and our waiter was good too.
An excellent meal and a good value. Nice to see all the wait staff wearing gloves.
Thank you for the good food and for great evening.
Sunday brunch was pretty awesome! Just a few things that would make it a little better.
The corned beef hash was a little salty but there shouldn’t be anything but corned beef potatoes and onion Done! There was like a pickling spice and green peppers👎🏼. Home fries were pretty darn good but slightly salty. Overall great brunch would defiantly go again and will defiantly suggest to friends and family. Omelet station was to die for!
Always a great time and great food! Been coming her for years with my family, the food is always spectacular. Brunch is well worth the price. Dinner is even better!
Met up to take a couple friends out for belated birthday dinners. One had the beef tip special (very good) the other 2 of us each had a different salad. Cobb salad which is a favorite of ours and we’re known to order it each time we go, didn’t seem to have any where near the amount of fixings on it but plenty of greens. Myself I changed it up and went with the Vermonter salad. I thought for the price of it as much greens as the Cobb salad had mine was very sparse and as for topping hardly anything on it including the smoked chicken.
All around great atmosphere and good service but we were disappointed in our salads this time.
It was a great place. Meat was cooked properly, and even the beets that came with the steak were delicious (coming from someone who doesn’t like beets at all.)
My only complaint is that I wanted a nice date with my BF but got a table right in the center of the restaurant’s walkways.
pricey, but it was very good. Stuffed pork chop was excellent and the vegetable selection was very good and different. Sometime the place could use a facelift, doesn't match the pricing. Been a few times will go back very good.
My favorite restaurant in VT, Food was amazing as always, lobster Mac n cheese had nice big chunks of lobster. Pesto scallop dinner was so good. 4 large, fresh, sweet scallops, the cream sauce was out of this world and you can't go wrong with an order of the garlic bread. You will not be disappointed eating here.
Food was excellent! Generous portions and beautifully displayed. We enjoyed our food tremendously. However, our server was poorly trained. For example, we got our check before we got our dessert order. We asked for ketchup and it did not come initial after the meal. We ordered steaks and the server didn’t bring steak knives. When we asked for them, she brought only two (four of us ordered / needed knives).
With that being said, the food was great and value was there. Very high quality food.
I have used Open table to make reservations at this restaurant several times. We were seated at a table right next to the kitchen doors. Constant back and forth of a busy staff. I really don't think there should be a table here at all. It took a half an hour to get the drink I ordered when we first sat down. They no longer bring bread to table, instead they bring a small cup of hummus and some croutons. This was pretty sad. I get it was Saturday night, but the food was thrown together and really looked lousy. I will not be returning.
We made a reservation and still waited 30 minutes to get a table. When it was time to be seated, we were seated at a tiny table in the back of the room in a corner next to the kitchen. So we took the time to make a reservation and still had to wait for a bad table.
It was not advertised that the menu had been limited due to valentine's day the day before.
People were waiting 20 minutes just to pay their checks and the tables were not even full.
Always the best food and service. Worth the extra money and wait
Our diners were delicious. The waiter never told us the other couple specials they were running. I was not given a carnation but saw everyone else got one. The dessert we chose was a blood orange, pineapple upside down cake with ice cream and berries. We chose to take it home to eat later as we were full. It was hard and stale not good at all. If I had eaten it there I would have sent it back. It was awful!
Food was really good, using NECI on Main as THE Montpelier area standard for excellence. Prices high, but not unreasonable, I've no problem with that. Service was a bit slow, but the restaurant was REALLY busy, as it was the night before Valentine's Day. This is not a complaint, just fact. The waitstaff was pleasant, conversational, and were working their butts off trying to make the experience great for all diners. The house Malbec was very good. I would definitely consider another dinner at J. Morgans!
Rack of lamb entree, and scallop entree, were incredible. Generous amounts of delicious Lyonnaise potatoes and veggies mostly asparagus. Creme brul. was delicious as usual, loved the fresh fruit with it. Peanut butter pie was mediocre... Wondered if it had been frozen. Only thing I wouldn't get again. Fantastic restaurant!
Great food, fantastic service. Not inexpensive, but you get a full meal for the price. Desserts are fabulous! Really enjoyed eating here. Also, the trains are delightful.
The ambiance was nice. The menu looked like beef was their specialty. I ordered a rib eye medium rare. I truly doubt I was served a rib eye. It had no fat or marbling, was chewy and overcooked. The sweet potato was the smallest I’ve ever seen, offering only three bites of potato. The vegetable medley was very good- butternut squash, Brussel sprouts, beets. The side salad was just okay. My date’s scallops looked delicious and she enjoyed them very much.
We came here on Sunday night, the Shirmp cocktail was grate and the garlic bread too. I had stake it was good, my girl had scalops it was ok. To be call a Steak house the service was not good, when you spent$$$ you expect much better.
J Morgans has the best brunch in Vermont, as always!
Amazing food as always. If you want something off the hook, try the shrimp scampi with angel hair and add a side of lobster Mac and cheese. Mix together and it doesn’t get much better than that!!
We were celebrating my girlfriends 21st and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience
Always pleasant service with superb cuisine
Amazing hamburgers. huge tasty salads. all the food we tasted was superb. the wines are very reasonably priced also.
We have been going to J Morgan's for many years during the holidays. This was our last visit. We now have to pay for bread, pay for salad. C'mon, just charge a dollar or two more for each entree. Our proteins were overcooked. The water was free, but we only got one glass. No one came by to refill them. This had always been our "go to" restaurant. We are so disappointed.
