Located at the top of the South Hill, Morty's Tap & Grille aims to accommodate anyone who's hungry, thirsty or maybe just a little bored. The restaurant is open from 7 am to 2 am seven days a week, and if you get there before 6 pm, it's happy hour with discounts on well drinks, draft beers and house wines.
About two years ago, Morty's added breakfast, a part of the business that has since picked up steam. Bartender Amanda Thompson says one of the most popular items is the country skillet — a chicken fried steak served with country potatoes, green peppers, onions, two eggs, cheddar cheese and country gravy in a sizzling skillet.
While the folks behind Morty's are also behind the soon-to-open Selkirk Pizza & Tap House in Wandermere (in the spot once occupied by Fat Daddy's), don't expect Morty's to go anywhere. Not that all their regulars would let them. ♦
