The owner of the place where we were staying recommend this place for breakfast. We were seated in the patio area and waited quite a while for service. The waiter definately took other orders from people who arrived after us. Not that it bothered us too much. The chicken fried steak wasn't anything special and neither was the omelet with... More

Hello Glenn B We are sorry you thought the chicken fried steak and omelette we just "so so". Were you provided the opportunity to let your server or the manager know? We certainly never want a guest to leave without being 100% satisfied. Please let us know as we'd like to make this right by you. More

The service was great, staff was very outgoing, Burgers were very good. Nice variety to choose from on the menu. The outside patio is along side a stream. If it is a little chilly out they have patio heaters going. Very nice atmosphere for dinner and drinks. We were there when they were not busy.

We had a late breakfast in the middle of the week and it is definitely a local hangout. Comfy, intimate seating and of course the main decorating theme is cows. Lots of cows. Food was excellent - I had a huge bowl of oatmeal with dried fruit and brown sugar. I have no idea what it's like on a weekend,... More

Location is great and the town of Morrison is always a great place to visit. Met up with friends and we lucked out that there wasn't a long wait. We opted to sit the patio which was nicely heated. Service was outstanding. We had 2 servers so between the two our coffee was always refreshed. As far as the food... More

We had the steak tacos and the mahi-mahi tacos and they really were terrific. Total bill $30 for the two of us. Sat on patio where they have a heater and it was nice even on a cool day. Fast service with good music playing in background.

The Cow has excellent food! As long as you don't mind a short wait and a noisy room, you will be more than satisfied with the food. Excellent salads, burgers and breakfast that have large portions.

The location on the main drag is perfect. They have outdoor seating for those days when the weather permits. The have an impressive beer selection as well as an impressive food menu. If you are looking for something a little different, give The Cow An Eater a look.

Cow is our local favorite in Morrison for breakfast or lunch, especially after a bike or hike. New ownership in the past 18 months hasn't detracted from the food quality or service. Burgers are fantastic, Trinidad stake sandwich outstanding with fresh jalepeno. Salad is very good with fresh veggies. Omlets, eggs and breakfast burrito always wonderful. Good beer on tap... More

As the title says, what a surprise. Stopped in for lunch and was blown away. The place is homey, comfortable with tons of charm. Then there's the food. The Buffalo burgers are unbelievable and the steak sirracha tacos are out of this world. Staff is fantastic and it's a great stop on a slow Saturday afternoon.
