Nice

Food was very tasty but they could use a little remodeling. My husband had the lobster & steak combo & it was huge & delicious. It's a bit pricey but average for the area

We ordered a prime rib, surf and turf and pasta dish. Both the prime rib and surf and turf were inedible. The beef was poor quality with a chewy texture and no flavor. Over $100.00 later we stopped at McDonalds across the street and had dinner in the parking lot. The only positive to the dinner at Merlinos was the... More

Yes I know it is a steakhouse but if you put something on the menu you should know how to cook it. The cutlet was burnt black and the sauce was so bitter I couldn't eat it. My wife had shrimp scampi which was okay but way over priced for the quality. I had a 4 shrimp cocktail for $16... More

I have eaten here on several other occasions and am always pleased with the food. I was not disappointed again as I got their Teriyaki Turkey Tips and they were plentiful and delicious. Probably because we are in a very touristy area, we seem to pay a little higher price for their food. But I will return as I have... More

On a busy night in North Conway, we got a table upstairs for 4. Preston was a very attentive and accommodating waiter. The decor is outdated, but it is clean and spacious. The garlic bread and Mozzerela Cheese apps were good, and the cuts of streak ( 2 filets and 1 sirloin) were good with very little fat. The rack... More

I reviewed Merlino's in 2012 when my children ordered their steaks off the children's menu, but on this visit, we all ordered center cut NY sirloin steaks (12 oz.) and we couldn't have been more pleased. The steaks were cooked perfectly (two medium-rares and a medium) and all three steaks were flavorful, juicy and tender. Our starches (baked potato, mashed... More

Driven by it a hundred times had to finally go in. We sat on the second floor, which only has one interior way to get there and all of the food is cooked and prepared on the first floor. Beer and our waters were chilled and great. Side salads were great appearance through the raspberry vinegarette dressing was basically vinegar.... More

Merlino"s is an old-fashioned steak house. It's decor is dated but it is clean. The wait staff was attentive. My wife got the surf and turf. She said the seafood was good but the steak was superb. My t-bone steak was a 20 oz and cost $32.99. It was excellent. I like the place.
