The Best Restaurants in Morristown

Travel Maven

In recent years, Morristown has transformed itself into a city with one of the most vibrant downtown areas. From boutiques and breweries to fine dining, here are a few of our absolute favorite spots to eat when in Morristown.

Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen | 110 South St

Set in a historic 1917 mansion, the ambiance at Jockey Hollow is truly unmatched. Their menu features mostly new American fare with an emphasis on pasta. Their cocktails are equally amazing. Our favorite dish is the Rye Bucatini, a thick spaghetti like pasta seasoned in white bolognese sauce, parmigiano, and truffle oil.

South + Pine | 90 South St

This popular BYOB is led by chef Leah Gaccione who's ran several of Bobby Flay's restaurants. Her jump into opening her own business has been a major success so far. Fresh, imaginative, and artistic, the plates at South + Pine are delicious. Their crispy rice balls topped with prosciutto are a must-try.

Stirling Tavern | 150 South St

This super stylish family owned restaurant features an amazing brunch and dinner menu plus craft cocktails and a wide craft beer selection. Their dinner menu offers burgers, salads, and a variety of different small plates. Their brunch menu is our absolute fave and offers diners sweet and savory options from churro french toast to gouda mac and cheese and breakfast tacos.
