Morse Tavern Serves Comfort Food and History All in One
John and Sharon Stournaras are nearing their first year anniversary as the owners of Morse Tavern.
For a meal that makes you feel right at home and an atmosphere that takes you back in time, the Morse Tavern is just the place to be.
"We cater to families; we provide a fun atmosphere with well-cooked comfort food. We are very proud of the food we serve," said owner John Stournaras.
The Stournarases have been the owners of Morse Tavern since April of 2011, but the Tavern itself has a long Natick History.
According to Stournaras and the Natick Historical Society the Morse Tavern was originally off Union Street going to South Natick. When that building moved, part of the building was moved to St. Patrick's Rectory and the other half was moved to East Central Street.
"We are very thankful to the Natick Historical Society for their contribution to our understanding of the history of the original Morse Tavern," Stournaras said. "We do have some of the memorobalia here, and we are proud to display it."
The Stournaras have a long history in restaurants. Sharon, whose maiden name is Morse, has family who owned taverns in New Hampshire as well. John Stournaras and his family have been in the restaurant business as far back as he can remember.
"My wife's maiden name was definitely a tie-in," Stournaras said. "We also want to reach out and get all of the locals to come visit us and see what we are all about. We are nearly a year old and we would love to share our food and fun atmosphere with others."
Morse Tavern is open Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to midnight and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to midnight. They serve brunch on the weekends, and will be hosting a special Easter Brunch on April 8.
The charge is $19.99 for adults and $12.99 for children. Brunch includes a carving station with turkey, ham and prime rib. Omelettes and other specialty items will also be served.
The Morse Tavern is happy to welcome your large party into the restaurant, but they also cater special events. Their full-service bar and their live entertainment round out their offerings.
"We are a nice, family-run, warm, friendly place," Stournaras said. "We want everyone to come see us and enjoy our food."
