Sirloin

The place needs to be renovated, as it's getting a little bit shabby. However the meat served is quite nice and tasty, the sirloin I had was perfectly cooked to my taste (rare) and I enjoyed it quite a lot. Good steak house overall.

Great food with really good service. The waitstaff really hustle there. Very busy when we visited, but it wasn't long before we got our meals. The waygu burger is great, the fries are excellent and of course a good glass of wine to go with them.

The food and service was on par with most. Nothing spectacular, but a solid, everyday restaurant. Good for a family night out.

We have driven by a million times,finally stopped. Most of the food was homemade and excellent. The service was slow, but there were a lot of big parties. It wasn't what we expected. The atmosphere was basic, not your typical chain restaurant stuff. The menu was decent sized, with great values to expensive steaks and seafood. Overall a good place... More

This is a very friendly family style restaurant. They have a very traditional menu with not much that is exceptionally healthy or quirky, but they do serve heritage pork and local pastured beef. We got 3 of the local burgers and 1 local steak and all were good. Other than that there's not too much to pick from but its... More

I didn't review prior to going, what a mistake. Way overpriced, and not that good. Filet was tough, more like a sirloin . We travel to N.Conway a few times a year and we were surprised that this place would last with the lack of quality food and high prices. There are a lot of fantastic restaurants in the area,...

We tried Merlino's on a whim not really knowing what we wanted for dinner. Great menu choices....Hubby had a rack of ribs and I had the Prime Rib - delish!

We were in North Conway and looking forward to eating dinner in one of the places we always see full during the busy ski season. We checked TripAdvisor and saw the write ups--some were very good others at the other end. A mixed review to say the least. I'm sorry I have to add one that is at the lower... More
