    The food at Morgan's Tavern is delicious. If I lived closer I would go two to three times a week. Loved the atmosphere. It's truly a dining experience. Try one of their specialty cocktails. The staff is so friendly and nice. Everything makes for a memorable dining experience.

    Returned a few weeks later, and while we almost never do this, we ordered the same meals again. (Scallops on risotto). Perfectly prepared and plated, just like the previous visit.

    What a nice surprise! It was an Indian summer day, warmer and sunny, and we ate outside in the hotel porch. Wait staff was masqued and not overburdened. There is street noise, and some construction noise, but no different than any city restaurant might have. We both had the Morgan salad with Scottish Salmon, and it was a great big delicious lunch salad that was satisfying with thick bacon bits and crispy delicious salmon in an ample serving. Only downer was that they had no potatoes so they could not fill my order for clam chowder - best to inform the wait staff ahead of time, rather than let your guests mouths start to water! Apparently the supply chain woes in the US are in middlebury too? The dessert was great, a new favorite. The caramel molten lava cake. Yum. And all was very reasonable in price. We will return!

    Entree arrived before appetizers and one of the three entrees was forgotten. Scallops were lukewarm and quesadillas were not tasty. We had to ask for water refills and constantly had to remind the server of missing drink and food items.

    Understaffed in all aspects, which translated into slow or nonexistent help and glacial speed in food preparation. Crab cakes were inedible. Other than those things it was fine.

    Lovely location. It has so much potential but was a let down. Original wait staff was so slow that another staff had to jump in to get our orders after nearly seated for 30 min. Food was mediocre at best.

    We’ve dined inside (very pleasant) and outside (delightful). Most of the outdoor area has a roof so no rain date needed—closed in winter. Good service for both. I had the excellent crispy chicken twice and Hubby had crab cakes (so so) and a very good burger the last time. Morgan’s Tavern is a dependable, favorite respite in Middlebury!
