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.

Could not believe that that this steakhouse does not serve Veal Parm anymore! So I ordered the crab and sirloin special - all GRIZZLE - HORRIBLE! I have been going to Merlino's for over 25 years only to bring a local there thinking I was doing something nice... Filet Mignon - SUB PAR for this establishment Sirloin Tips - fatty,... More

We stopped here because it was close to our hotel and having not eaten the entire day we were hungry and very tired. This certainly will teach us to unpack first and check our laptop before venturing on our own. Long story short, we should have known this place wasn't up to par when there were just a few cars...

I can't recall having a worst restaurant meal than at Merlino's. I ordered a Caesar salad with salmon, and the salmon tasted like detergent, the dressing was a weird white mixture, the croutons were inedible ... My husband's meat was also very bad. And even my kids couldn't eat their French fries ... Absolutely awful.

We were 4 people. Not one of us had a decent meal. One had the special roast beef and it came to the table grey. The most unappealing and unappetizing peice of meat I've even seen. One had the turkey tenders, ribs and pulled pork. Had to ask the waiter what one piece of meat was, turned out to be... More

Dirty, loud, food is terrible, comes from the frozen food dent and scratch section at Walmart. I want to vomit. They want you to pay top dollar and don't even serve bread. Across the street is McDonald's, next to the building is a dumpster, try there first before this place
