The way food is touted here—by wheeling over a cart of uncooked meats, including a live lobster—can be a little off-putting (not everybody wants to witness their dinner being wheeled off to its death). But there are reasons Morton’s is so famous: the classic Chicago steakhouse interior, tailor-made for sealing the deal (business or pleasure); crab cakes with hardly any filler; generous lobster cocktails; and barely seasoned steaks that stand out for their flavor (rib eye), their tenderness (filet mignon) or both (porterhouse).

My review focuses entirely on Morton's 'Power Hour,' which kicks the crap out of the offerings at neighboring restaurants between 5-8 pm, Monday - Friday. We arrived on a Thursday after work and easily found three seats at the bar. Beverage deals include a basic but wide selection of beers, wines and cocktails and there Bar Bites menu encompasses several $7 - $8 options that could be a meal in and of themselves when ordered together.
We ordered the mini cheeseburger sliders done medium rare, which arrived cooked to perfection. We also got the homemade chips with blue cheese dip and the petit filet mignon sandwiches, also done medium rare. We enjoyed the food so much that we practically gobbled it all up the minute we started eating. To top it off, the wait staff were very attentive and friendly, capping off an awesome experience. Skip Sweetwater and come here instead for a bite and a drink after work.
