When seeking out the best dining experience, look no further than Ala Moana Center’s staple for quality steak and seafood. Morton’s The Steakhouse has been serving both locals and tourists alike in Hawaii for 15 years now, and continues to uphold its fine reputation by offering the same exceptional service and food it always has been known for.

“The ideal ‘Morton’s experience’ is where great food, service and hospitality come together for a fun-filled evening with family, friends, business clients and loved ones,” says general manager of 13 years Zyron Schoniwitz. “Our team’s goal is to always exceed our guests’ expectations.” And, with Morton’s sincere commitment, it’s no wonder the restaurant continues to be a success.

When deciding on what to order, consider Morton’s Bone-in Filet Mignon ($67). Like all other steaks served at the restaurant, this filet is USDA Prime-grade meat that’s dry-aged for at least 23 days. Why does the restaurant go through all the hassle? Because Morton’s will settle for nothing less than the best. Plus, all that attention to detail really pays off, as the filet is tender, flavorful and juicy.

Fresh from the ocean, the ultimate seafood euphoria awaits diners with Alaskan King Crab Legs (market price, by the pound). Morton’s serves this delicacy as jumbo-sized King clusters, which either can be chilled or steamed, with a side of drawn butter and lemon. Each leg is split down the middle, showcasing lumps of sweet crabmeat ready to be devoured.

If you’re craving a little bit of surf-and-turf fare, Schoniwitz suggests Steak and Seafood Dinner ($62.99 per person). The meal starts off with your choice of either Caesar Salad or Morton’s Salad. Next, a perfect 6-ounce filet is plated next to your preference of seafood — famous Shrimp Alexander, Jumbo Bacon Wrapped Scallops or Jumbo Lump Crab Cake. Don’t forget the dessert, as you won’t want to miss out on one of these options: Morton’s legendary Hot Chocolate Cake, Key Lime Pie or CrAi??me Brulee.
