Morton's the Steakhouse - Atlantic City
Morton's The Steakhouse, the nation's premier steakhouse group, specializes in classic, hearty fare, serving generous portions of USDA prime aged beef, as well as fresh fish, lobster and chicken entrees. The menu features a variety of favorite cuts, including a 24 ounce porterhouse, which is the house specialty; a 16 ounce New York Strip and a 12 ounce double cut filet.
I have been to a number of Morton's across the country and I was looking forward to dining at this one. I have always gotten a consistent experience in the past, however this one would prove inconsistent with the others. The steak, sides and appetizers were as good as I have had with any other Morton's, however for the prices that you pay, I expect the waiters to have at least some idea what they are doing, and be polite. Our entrees came prior to our appetizers, something that I have never experienced at even lesser restaurants, and the staff was not even close to apologetic, almost leading me to believe that this is common place. Concerning to say the least, especially considering consistency being something Morton's relies on.
Just a few steps from the valet parking inside the main casino entrance of Caesar's Atlantic city, you will find 2 tall, dark wooden doors with a subtle marquis welcoming you to Morton's. From the moment you enter, you know you are in for a treat. The perfect fine dining atmosphere, lighting and ambiance are a welcome change to many of today's eclectic slop houses. The business end of the kitchen is brazenly displayed at one end of the dining room, where three chefs are visible during the service. The wait staff seems carefully selected and very knowledgeable of the rank and file dishes. The starters came quickly and were fresh and tasty. My fillet was nicely cooked and perfectly seasoned. The deserts were incredible. Look to spend $50-80 dollars per person here, but expect the best of the best. Still the preferred choice of gourmet steak over Ruth's Chris.
