Morton's Prices now out of line with all other chains

NY strip $57 and baked potato, $11. Most steakhouse chains are in mid 40's for strip and $7-8 for a potato. What are they thinking????

    I noticed that last week they are definitely the most expensive steak house in my region (S Fl).

      We went to Morton's on NYE, and were definitely surprised by the prices. Especially considering the quality of the food and service could have been duplicated at a less expensive chain for nearly half the cost. Luckily we had gift cards to blow through, or I would have felt pretty suckered paying $200 for our meal (without wine).

          I was at Morton's last night for a retirement party. I hadn't been there in a while, and was a little suprised at the quality of the food for a price. Our salads were swimming in dressing, and the most memorable part of our entree was the side of green beans -- not a great thing to take notice of when you've got a filet mignon on the plate! I had the molten chocolate cake for dessert, and while it was good, it wasn't the best I've ever had. For the cost per head, I found it disappointing. Is it still good? Sure. But it's not great, and that's what it should be for the price!
