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

As always we had a great meal here. My prime rib was cooked to perfection. The kids pizza was just the right size. One thing that they could do is give a vegetable with the entre and starch.

An nice place for the family with portions large enough to share and kid friendly service and meals. We had a decent locally raised steak and some good sides and our six year old guest enjoyed his kid-sized steak dinner and his cookie. The waitress was patient with our gluten free questions and we managed to organize a good gluten... More

As i lay awake writing this we both have very uneasy bellys 7 hours after the unfortunate choice of dinning there. Too bad they rely in the great location to survive instead of treating their quests to a dinning experience of good food and service. This was an all around experince i would advise to avoid. I dine out often... More
