Ever been to Morton's in Phoenix?

My husband and I are celebrating our 28th anniversary and want somewhere nice to go for dinner. How about Morton's?

  1. We love Morton's.....Love the Warm loaf of onion Bread they bring to the table, love the Morton Salad w/ Anchovy and chopped egg over Crisp Iceberg the Sides of Lyonnaise potatos, hash browns, love the Crabmeat the huge lobsters....and of course the steaks especially the double cut filet!!!!!.
    I really love the fact the smoking laws have gone in to effect...and that I am now enjoying my steak w/out Cigar smoke wafting in my face!
    It's a great place to celebrate.....

    1. I've been to Morton's in the Esplanade in Kierland 2-3 times each, and they were both good, pretty much the same. Personally, I prefer Ruth's Chris, and I favor the Camelback location over the one at Scottsdale & Indian Bend, although both are very good. I'm not as impressed by Capital Grille (just one visit), and while Fleming's is good it is a cut below Ruth's and Morton's. I have yet to try Donovan's or the Grill at TPC.

        As you may know, the quality at Morton's varies a bit from location to location. The Phoenix location is very good (comparable to the Gold Coast, Philadelphia, Portland, and San Juan locations). However, I would recommend Donovan's on East Camelback Road as your best bet for steaks in the Phoenix-Scottsdale area.

      2. I've been to several Morton's, including the one at 24th & Camelback. It's OK with a good, albeit way-overpriced wine list. I have had much better, all the way round, at many free-standing, chef-driven steakhouses. I guess I should not complain too much, as I have always been the one to order the wine, and someone else has always paid. Still, I think that one can do much better. I broadly typify them (and Ruth's, et al) as adult McD's "happy meals." But that is just my take on them. When traveling, unless I have no choice, I will not dine there.


        1. I frequent the one at Esplanade often. I like it much, though I wayyyyy prefer Donovan's.

          Also,. Morton's is offering a dinner for two for $99 through June.
