Burger was a little under cooked and lobster mac and cheese was a little watery. A couple things were forgotten and had to ask for them a second time. But over all the food tasted good and the waitress was very polite and happy.

We went to J Morgan’s for Valentines Day. The service was great and the food was exquisite. The atmosphere was romantic and intimate. I recommend this restaurant as a great place for a special date night!

We dine at J Morgans every year before our annual Daddy/Daughter dance. It's located within the same complex as the Capital Hotel where the ball is held. Always friendly service and great food. Moderate pricing, but if you want cheap food, go to McDonalds.

My first brunch at J. Morgan's Steakhouse. I have eaten dinner there many times and it is always my favorite restaurant in Central Vermont. I took a friend who had never been to the restaurant and she was blown away with the brunch selection and the brunch price. She is moving to Manchester, New Hampshire in two weeks and said to me "it would be worth coming back to Montpelier on a weekend just for brunch!"

The chef in the brunch serving area was great and you could tell he really liked his job. He did a great job of promoting the restaurant too as he told us of upcoming (Valentine's Day) specials.

J Morgan's is one of the best restaurants i have ever been to.

J Morgan steakhouse advertises itself as “famous” & I can see why: the steak is amazing! There are other typical menu items of pasta & seafood but I ordered a Montreal rib eye, my dinner guest ordered the New York steak. Both were prepared perfectly. We liked the onion rings topping the steaks & the seasonings were excellent. Our potatoes were delicious, garlic mashed for me, a loaded baked for my guest. The only disappointment was the mixed veggies, a little over-boiled. I would’ve liked to try a dessert but the entree portion was so large we didn’t have room for dessert.

The cakes were enormous and delicious. The value was great considering it took us two days to eat our desserts. If you want a great carrot cake to feed your family of four, look no further!

We had a fabulous time enjoying a night out for our anniversary. The food was delicious! I had the Cobb salad and my husband had the seafood platter and both were great! The salad was HUGE! I appreciated that the wait staff packages up your left overs for you.

Good food but felt very rushed, we had a 8:15 table booked, felt very rushed with plates being taken away as we finished one by one, asked if we wanted desert at 9pm as the chef wanted to go home, vacuuming at 10pm was the sign to leave

I found this restaurant a tremendous disappointment. Purportedly voted the “best steakhouse in Central Vermont,” I cannot help but feel very sorry for the people of Central Vermont. The garlic bread is a saturated, oily mess sprinkled with some type of indiscernible cheese-product sprinkled on top, and the wedge salad (which I had thought was a virtual impossibility to ruin) was presented with tasteless blue cheese crumbles and a tasteless buttermilk dressing. The two 7 oz filet mignons for me and my guest were both over cooked. The garlic mashed potatoes tasted as though they had been prepared five hours earlier. All in all, an awful meal. Avoid if at all possible.

 (Richmond)·Dined on December 21, 2017

Unfortunately, we were unimpressed with the food. The $8, small cup, of French onion soup was good however, it was barely luke warm. The salad special was all romaine and very little chicken or gorgonzola or anything else. I bet there was a whole head of romaine in the salad - not kidding at all! The balsamic vinegar dressing was extremely oily. We asked for a little more gorgonzola and were charged an extra $2 each. Now, if the salads had a reasonable amount of cheese, I would fully expect to pay more to get more however, this wasn't the case at all. We had to dig through all the greens to find the chicken or cheese. After much discussion and very little empathy, the manager did finally offer to comp one of the salads. For the price and quality of food we had, I wouldn't recommend. It's very unlikely we'll return.

Excellent Caesar salad, dry-aged steak, fries, and veg. Pleasant enough scene, though perhaps a little outdated and run down. Excellent service (pleasant, engaged, responsive, unobtrusive). Would happily go back.

Our server was helpful and to the point, and then was enigmatic and a hoot to finish! House salad is classier than most and tasty. Ribs were outstanding, fish of the day could have used a little more flavor but quality was terrific. Dessert should be shared among four; inspired comfort food and the size of half a cake pan. Scotch list is primo.

We were there for lunch the Food was excellent make sure you try the chips with the cheese app. To die for! On this day the staff seemed out of sorts or were understaffed. We arrived on time for our reservation but ended up waiting for 15-20 to be seated . Something was definitely amiss this day. We will return in spite of the confusion as the food was good.

As you’d expect the steak at a steakhouse was amazing. But equally joyous were the fruit de mer, stunningly fresh and delicious and the duck dish, sumptuous and savory.
Venture off the steak side of the menu to the other beautiful dishes.

Very loud. Service terrible. Left dirty plates on the table and had to ask to have the water glasses refilled. Had to chase the server down for everything.

We always visit JMorgans when we are in Vermont on vacation each year. This year was no different and we would like to say that our server Amber T was amazing...we were lucky enough to have her on the several occasions we dropped in (a steak dinner, appetizers after the movie, cake and drinks on the patio one afternoon) and she was always wonderful. Her personality and service made our visits there even more enjoyable.
