Remodeled interior. Very well done.
About 70% full at 6:30 on a Tuesday night.
Covered outside dining expanded, but we ate inside because rain.
Very nice staff, kind to children. Had 1yr old niece with us.
Food was excellent. Get the garlic bread appetizer. And anything steak. The mashed potatoes got lots of compliments.
Good wine selection by glass and bottle. Good selection of spirits. Especially Whistle Pig bourbon.
Totally ADA accessible including rest rooms on dining level (wheelchair entrance in rear).
Parking slips validated so ample free parking.

20% tip automatically added for 4 or more people. I prefer to calculate my own tip.

Terrible service by Emily & Mgr Gretchen. Steak was cold & overcooked. Offended they offered to reheat my overcooked steak, then only offered free $10 dessert in place of my $32 steak SMH Mrg Gretchen reluctantly came over to clear plates & mistakenly offered free salad, then remembered dessert. Didn't apologize or really address bad Steak. It was a waste of a 30 min drive. Seated late even with reservation & after others who arrived after us. Water girl dumped & spilled water everywhere. Best part was the music playing.

I would like to Apologize for your dining experience at J Morgan’s last night. As you’ve stated your filet was not cooked to your standards. We strive to prepare and present the best quality food for our customers. Unfortunately, we did not hit that mark. Due to limited seating We are doing our best to accommodate all reservations. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience. . In hopes that you give us another chance. I look forward to seeing you soon.

This is our favorite restaurant in all of Vermont! We drive about an hour and a half from southern VT several times a year to meet family from the Burlington area. Their food is consistently good. I still have a picture of a classic dessert from 15 years ago! So glad they have survived the pandemic!

Food was terrific as usual. The waitstaff was exceptional. When we arrived, the background music was a little too loud. We had my elderly mother in law with us and it was hard for us to have a conversation. We asked if the volume could be lowered, and they graciously accommodated us. Always a wonderful experience.

Server and food were very good as usual, what ruined the visit was the blonde hostess who rudely said, loud enough for me to hear, something about what was on my open table profile. It was very rude not only to say but also that I could hear. I realize she is young and stupid but it really did dampen my experience.

I had a steak which was very tender, but not very tasty. Because of this, I was somewhat disappointed. My wife had Vermont chicken and was happy with it. This was the first time we had been back to the restaurant in more than a year. I didn't feel it was worth the cost. Sorry.

J. Morgan's is a wonderful choice anytime, but especially in the pandemic environment. The tables are well spaced, thoroughly disinfected between diners, mask wearing is well enforced, servers are wearing gloves. We felt completely comfortable. The menu remains outstanding as does the food. They have a mandatory 20% service fee, about which they are upfront and we don't find objectionable. Overall a wonderful dining experience.

Great experience! Delicious food and drinks (garlic bread and steak dinners). Hosts and Waitstaff were friendly and highly attentive. The atmosphere was clean, extremely well spaced, and we sat in the back room which was like being on a lit patio-lovely!

Date night, well, it was just 3 pm. We want to avoid any crowds but we also wanted to support j morgans because it’s one of our favorite restaurants and I love their tuna salad and their shrimp cocktail. I wish they would put on some more healthier dishes that use fish but not swimming in butter or oil.

We greatly enjoy eating at J Morgans. Although some of our favorites are not on the current COVID menu we still enjoy the ability to eat out socially distanced. We have had a few luke warm steaks recently, but overall we have been happy with flavor, and the strawberry chiffon cake is AHHH MAZING! and a have to ( Even if it is to go ;) ).

During Covid in Januaray. We sat in the garden area. Our first trip to Barre/Montpelier. I would go J morgans again. Nice atmosphere, excellent food. But being one of the finest restaurants in Montpelier, my criticisms are based on that fact. Music - not the best of choice. A bit too loud to start with and way too much bass. They did adjust the volume and bass when I had requested. Service- very polite and nice servers. Server came immediately to take our drink order. No time to review the drink menu. One person did order a drink at that time and a bus person delivered it. Our server took awhile to come back for my initial drink order. When the server came back, I skipped the cocktail order and ordered the dinner wine along with our apps. Wine came, glasses poured. Apps came, ordered entrees. Wine was never poured again ( along with water glasses) - is this something that servers are no longer doing, covid related, I am not sure. Dirty utensils removed and replaced which was nice.
