Mortons Steak House, Jacksonville (Downtown)

Only a few tables were occupied, the economy is taking it toll. Visited Morton's for my fathers birthday and had a great time. The martinis were fantastic! Pictured: The Tuna TarTar was good, the bottom layer was tomatoes not tuna. I make it better, but the fish was fresh! The smoked salmon platter was also good, but something that is very easily made at home for a fraction of the price. The Ocean Platter was amazing. We ordered it for 4 people, and had plenty! It had oysters, lobster, lump crab meat, jumbo shrimp, and more. Steaks were good, and no other complaints except a lime in a drink that was ordered with no lime. The desserts were a hit! The Grand Marnier Souffle is the best, but you must order at the beginning of the meal because it takes a while to cook. The Creme Brulee and Chocolate Lava cake were close seconds! The cheesecake was wiped off the table because the other desserts were to die for.
Leave me a comment and let me know how your experience at Morton's was!
