If you don’t know Morristown, New Jersey I’ll give you quick bit of history about it now. George Washington’s Headquarters were located in Morristown during the Revolutionary War during the winter of 1779-1780. Now you’re probably wondering why I am telling you this and what’s the point? Well, here’s why– it’s because the restaurant I am reviewing is rightfully called George & Martha’s for that reason. It’s a hip American restaurant with a twist of history in the heart of good ol Morristown.
George & Martha’s (67 Morris Street, Morristown, NJ 07960)
Customer Service: 5- I went with my school’s Young Alumni Association that I am on the board of and our waiter was on top of everything and got all our orders right. That was until I wanted my desert wrapped and we had already paid but other than that– no complaints.
Atmosphere/Cleanliness: 4.5- Since it’s located in the heart of Morristown, we had a view of Cluck-U and a shopping plaza across the street and of course the sound of the ambulance wasn’t great either but that’s what you get in a city and since the restaurant is small you’ll hear anything. The decor inside was impressive and they can hold a crowd in the restaurant which made up for the noise and view outside.
Food/Drink Quality: 5- The food was great and you could tell it was made fresh. I got the Flat Iron Steak that came with fresh steamed veggies and mashed potatoes. It was cooked to order and I even had leftovers which tasted great the next day. Everyone in my group was satisfied with what they got. I even got dessert which was good enough to bring back. I got their chocolate mousse cake which was great. We all enjoyed the cocktails we got and they were served in an orderly fashion.
Price: $$ – Yes the food is a bit pricey but it’s well worth it. It also doesn’t have to be incredibly pricey depending on what you get. I’m sure if you got appetizers and drinks it wouldn’t put a whole in your pocket. But if it’s a great place to go on a date or just enjoy a dinner with friends or family after a long week or to celebrate. It’s also a very classy location to hold events for networking, dinners, and more!
Final Score: 14.5/15- Did I mention how great my leftovers were the next day? Yes, they were just as good as they were the night before. I highly recommend their steak’s because they are made to order and cooked to your liking. The sides were great and they do a great job with presentation. It’s a classic American grille so you can’t go wrong. The drinks are as amazing as the food is. I’m pretty sure some people at FDU would gladly take a night off from the cafe so I’d love to see some more FDU presence there!
So with that said, go enjoy a meal with someone you love or some great friends at George & Martha’s– it’s been Small Chick Approved.
