My wife and I hosted our son’s wedding rehearsal dinner for 63 family and friends at Eddie Merlot’s in Lincolnshire, Illinois. Our opinion is, and the feedback we received from our guests was, that Eddie Merlot’s was nothing short of spectacular. From the extensive planning help and support given to my wife and I over the 6 months preceding the... More

Not cheap, but the best steak and service I have had in a long time. Read a lot of reviews bragging this place up and they were "Right On" ! Warm atmosphere, comfortable seating, not crammed in. Separate rooms for larger groups. Lounge or dining room seating for eating. Wide range on the menu, but they are known as a... More

took my husband here for his birthday. We shared the Chateaubriand for Two. Even though the meal was a bit on the pricier side, the steak was delicious and the asparagus and your choice of potato completed the meal. Our waiter was also very attentive and nice. I love my steak and I would definitely rate this as one of... More

Having eaten at Eddie Merlot's several times, we've been impressed by the high quality of all the dishes and great service there. We like the ambience in the bar area and prefer it to the larger and more impersonal main dining room.

Okay, so it's like I tell everyone. Truly, there are a lot of nice restaurants in this area of IL (Schaumburg, Wheeling, Lincolnshire, Libertyville, etc.) but you will NEVER find one with as good a menu, food quality and with consistently phenomenal customer service! The wait staff is super attentive. The executive chef is outstanding (and will even accommodate special... More

It's been open for awhile and finally made it there - wish we would have done so a long time ago. It was so good we went back a week later and it was even better second time. The first time we had dinner in the dining room and we both chose an item from the Chef Specialties. Braised Beef... More

We do not indulge in expensive meals very often, but when we do we love to come to this restaurant. Everything is always perfect, we usually order off the pre-fixed meal menu which is very reasonable and more than enough food. Cesar salad is the best I've had anywhere and the Parmesan truffle fries are to die for. Although it... More

The last time we went to Eddie Merlot's in Lincolnshire the dining experience was very nice. That was about a year ago. This time the only thing really good about the food was the complimentary gazpacho soup appetizer and the French onion soup. The rest of the meal was just edible. My wife had a beef and noodle entree and... More

Went to Eddie Merlots with another couple to celebrate a birthday. I had read mixed reviews and my expectations were not that high, but was pleasantly surprised. Three of us had soup, two had the Lobster Bisque, which they said was very good, and I had the French Onion Soup. The soup was excellent.three of us had one of the... More
