“Mixing African, Caribbean and Cajun flavours together, the Morris House Bistro serves up low country cuisine in the great plains of Wyoming. Housed within the bungalow that once belonged to America’s first female Justice of the Peace, the setting is both grand and elegant, yet welcoming at the same time. The menu is full of tasty treats including shrimps and grits, sweet peas and bacon, and filet of beef. For an extravagant meal bursting with tempting flavours, order the market street crab cakes to start and follow with the cold carrot garlic soup. For main course opt for the Atlantic shelf red snapper with a side of spicy fried okra and choose one of the desserts of the day for a sweet finish to a deliciously spicy meal.”

Well this is some great news: AAA’s magazine “Via” covering the west/mountain west had a write up about Cheyenne in the Spring 2014 issue, and mentioned MHB as the place to eat! It says “Sophisticated Southern flavors change with the seasons, but the cheesy, just-spicy-enough low-country shrimp with grits is a year-round favorite.” We couldn’t be happier! Congrats to our friends at Shadow’s, which was the only other restaurant mentioned in the piece.

1/30/14 – We are overwhelmed by your positive response. The evening of February 14 is currently SOLD OUT. We’re unable to accept any additional reservations, thank you.
Let the holiday season begin! So, because of some craziness in reservations and parties already booked, this month we will only be able to take reservations over the phone (the online form will return at the end of the year). Tables are going fast for December – if you’d like to have a big party, a smaller celebration with friends or family, or a romantic dinner for two this month, we recommend that you call us sooner rather than later: 307.369.1378. Thanks!

The MHB team is so proud to be part of this year’s Race for the Cure. Just a reminder to all participants to join us at the Bistro after the race to continue the celebration.

We truly look forward to seeing all of you!
Just a reminder y’all that we will be closed on Thursday, July 4. Everything will be back to normal on Friday though – have a great holiday…hope to see you this weekend!
Last night was THAT night: the test run of all the new summer offerings and wines. Oh. My. God. I’ve always loved our food, but Dameione & Amy really hit the jackpot this season – the duck kabobs are unreal! And the new wine? Ohhhhhhh so good. Just to remind y’all, the first official day of the summer menu is Thursday. Hope you’ll come check it out. You can review the new summer menu by clicking here.
Alas, this weekend we bid a fond farewell to the lovely spring menu…to the lamb, to the lemon leek soup, the pompano, the manicotti, and so much more. Come on down for your last taste of spring this Thursday, Friday or Saturday!
