About Morgan's Restaurant
With "farm to table" cuisine prepared by Chef John Welch and his team, coupled with outstanding service and a relaxing atmosphere, Morgan's provides the perfect option for casual yet elegant dining. "Sunk in the heavenly moment, little attention is spared for why that food tastes so good, but there is an earth-bound reason for its excellence: Locally sourced grass-fed meat, artisan cheeses and fresh vegetables," wrote Kathryn Boughton of the Litchfield County Times. Chef Welch has skillfully chosen a unique wine list offering in addition to crafting a specialty drink menu. Arrive early for a drink at the bar or enjoy a walk to the lake front. Overnight accommodations are available at Interlaken Inn for a truly romantic getaway. Private dining for celebrations available.

Morgan's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I have enjoyed several very good and expertly prepared meals at Morgans over the years. Unfortunately, last Saturday evening was not one of them. I ordered the chef's special 1 1/2 lb lobster for $42. What a mistake. What I got was a plate of pureyed vegetables topped with two miniature claw sections (out of shell) and two small body sections, each about the size of what you would expect to get in an order of lobster Cantonese at the local Chinese kitchen. This was not a 1 1/2 lb lobster. What was on the plate was parts from a chicken lobster (under a 1lb) that would go into a not to filled lobster roll sandwich. I complained and the chef sent out another mini-claw piece and two small lobster chunks that were boiled and tough. My wife ordered a chicken dish that was very pedestrian. In fairness to Morgans there was a wedding going on at the Inn so the kitchen may have been running short, and they did attempt to make it up by comping two after-dinner aperitifs. But be warned, DON'T EVER ORDER THE CHEF'S LOBSTER SPECIAL and think twice if there is a big event going on in the Hotel.
Please note that as I have said I have had many very good meals at Morgans (both brunch and dinner) and will no doubt visit again next season. But I was so surprised and disappointed that I felt the need to warn others.
Difficult to find if don't know that it is in the Interlaken Inn. There is no signage on outside at all. Although waitress was friendly she was very inexperienced. We waited an unusually long time for appetizer. Dishes were not cleared from table from appetizers spring rolls and scallops were bland. Burger was very good. Dessert never offered. We had to get up to ask for and pay check. All this with only 3 parties being served.
Your options are very limited in this area of CT. The staff of Morgans were excellent, very attentive and customer service oriented. The food was OK. I had the chicken which was very small and had little taste. However the appetizer (Caprese) as well as some of the other entrees my party had were excellent.
Morgans was frankly a disappointment in an area that is well populated with good restaurants. We were ready for the 1980s decor but were hoping that the food would make up for it. Unfortunately it didn't measure up to our expectations. The sautéed zucchini and summer squash layered on top of my roasted trout were chilly instead of being piping hot. I probably would have been safer to order the cheeseburger, which the rest of our party had.
In an unlikely environment lies a most creative restaurant! Set in an inn that is not very distinguished, but with very welcoming staff, the dining room seems to be an odd opening up of several former rooms that create a rather odd space. However, once the menu arrives you know you're in a special place. The food was truly outstanding, especially the duckling....the very best I've ever eaten. Service is slowly paced, but that assured us that the chef was taking the time to oversee all the orders.
We had the Pekin Duck Breast with pickled rhubarb, farrow with ramps and a red wine caramel reduction and the Pappardelle with spring asparagus, sweet peas, ramps and herbed lemon ricotta. Dessert which we shared was a made-to-order cherry clafoutis.
My husband and I enjoyed our meal enormously and will certainly return. The waiter was also extremely helpful, courteous and welcoming.
Nice to have this addition to the Litchfield Hills!
We tried this restaurant and were very hopeful that their locally-focused menu would translate into an excellent meal. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Out of the five diners, four were very disappointed with the taste of the food. In particular, the fish….which was a very expensive $29….was fresh enough but had no flavor. Even the "deep winter vegetables" were somehow tasteless. The one standout winner though was the beef. The appetizers were also mixed, with two of the three appetizers being bland and one being so spicy that it was impossible to eat. The end of the meal proved to be better with thumbs up for both items tried.
Overall, a big disappointment. It is a nice space and quiet. One of the few restaurants in the area that are open on Monday night. But it was too expensive and too flavorless to try again anytime soon.
We were guests at the Interlaken Inn and after debating the propsect of having dinner "off campus" we decided to try the hotel restaurant "Morgan's". What a great decision. The food was excellent and very fresh. The salad and soup were delicious and nicely presented. The entrees flavorful and well proportioned. The salmon was perfectly prepared. The special pasta was excellent as well. The service was professional, knowledgeable and courteous. Our server, William, demonstrated a great instinct for the right balance between providing attentive service and leaving us alone at the table.
