I was in North Conway this past week with a friend and visited Merlino's in search of a simple steakhouse experience. I got that, and more. The staff is the friendliest, most courteous, and most helpful I've experienced in a long time. (I currently live on Cape Cod, where much of the time it's made clear to diners that they're... More

My wife and I ate dinner here just recently, it was many years since we had. Well, all I can say is, what a turn around. To me this place is over priced for the quality of food that is served. I believe that you are better off eating at the 99 Restaurant right down the street.

Usually order prime rib, but took a chance on lamb chops this time. It was a good choice. Two thick chops done perfectly. Our waitress Tina was very nice and did a very good job. My wife had a great steak. Just wish they had more vegetable choices. But overall a very good dinner.

After a disastrous meal at the North Conway Grand we walked 5 mins here on the off chance - good choice good cocktails and excellent food at a fair price good service and it was busy - always a good sign. So good we went back the next day and had second good meal. Popular with families early on

We were on a tour and this was part of our lobster feast included in the tour price. When we arrived the hostess (waitstaff?) showed an attitude. There seemed to be a mixup in the reservations and she sarcastically said to one employee, "Well, there were 50 reservations but I didn't know that it was all onegroup. And then, said,... More

Being in a new place I am always leery of which restaurant to choose. I had narrowed it down to May Kelly's and Merlino's. May Kelly's was listed as #1 but that Lobster Mac and Cheese sounded awesome. Merlino's was located directly across from our room at Holiday Inn Express and easily located by the giant bull above the sign.... More

They can get very busy after 6 (especially school week) so make sure you are there by 5. We've eaten here a few times, food is good - what you would expect from a steak house nothing outstanding but it's good. Decent portions to. It can get noisy though.

Stopped in to eat at the bar since we were looking for some quality pub grub. Hit the spot!! Burgers are delicious and accompanied by Tuckerman's ale they had on tap...excellent. Great service and super friendly staff.
