Nice family style atmosphere and ambience.

Solid menu, something for everyone, good size portions and fresh cooked to order quality. This does result in a long wait sometimes.....if you are in a hurry let them know!

Friendly staff that need to be abit more attentive though to empty glasses....we would like refills!

Love the local historical theme and the explanation of it is a nice touch on the placemats.

We've dined here a few times on our way through Hawera and always have a good time. Nice menu, its not eIaborate but the food is always nicely cooked and presented. Drinks are nice, staff are pleasant with the exception of one waitress (Holly) who clearly thinks she is destined for greater things. Morriesons was created to honour the memory and works of local author Ronald Hugh Morrieson after his birthplace was torn down and replaced with KFC. Only in Hawera would they do something so stupid. All in all, very happy with our experiences here and would dine here again and again.

My daughter & I dined at Morriesons on Sat night and had a lovely meal and on the dine out guide the reviews were not that good. Once there we had trouble finding out why they were less then impressed as the service was great the food delicious & the waitress's were friendly and helppful.
The decor was historic and interesting with history from the past.
