Spent a wonderful evening at Merriman's celebrating our 25th Anniversary. They started us off with a nice glass of Champagne. The whole fish appetizers were not our favorite but everything else was fantastic. . .including the sunset.

Although we have eaten here many times since it opened during our vacations here, this was a meal with lots of issues. Maybe it was a just a bad night. But for the high price here, all meals should be perfect. This is supposed to be fine dining. The first problem was it took way too long for my son's... More

We went to this restaurant on our second day on the island. I ordered the BKE burger and my wife the cheeseburger. I loved the BKE burger. Very delicious. It has a beef patty, pulled pork and egg on a toasted bun. This is a must have. We went there twice and ordered the exact same thing. Highly recommended

I reviewed this restaurant a few years ago after a trip to Kauai. I'm sure I gave it 5 out of 5 because as is with most Merman's restaurants there is very little bad to say about it. We were so looking forward to this meal because it happened to be my wife's birthday. I had made a reservation on... More

We had dinner in the fining dining restaurant upstairs. The seafood appetizers and entree's were very fresh and delectable. All the tables also have great views of the scenery behind the restaurant. Though the food and service was excellent - the restaurant is quite overpriced compared to the restaurants around it for the same quality of food.

From the masterful cocktails to the finely executed food this place is where money talks. We dropped over $300 on dinner for two but we feel like we received a very memorable dining experience. Our server Joe did not exude much aloha but was unfailing in his knowledge of the standard menu items and the specials of the day. He... More

This is a fine dinning restaurant with great seafood and great views. Merriman's is located on the top floor, with open windows. Great feel for this excellent restaurant. This service is good.

Had early dinner here in the upstairs restaurant where the fine dining is served. The lower level has pizza and burgers. The location is great. It's in a nice trendy outdoor mall with several shops and restaurants. We had the pork quesadilla appetizer and it was very good. The steak was very tasty - enjoyed that but not so much... More

What a great experience. Joe our waiter was delightful. Food exceptional and loved the setting. Might be because of the gorgeous sunset. Definitely ask to be seated where you can admire the setting sun. Only negative would be it was a little noisy due to large tables near by. No fault of the Resturant. Would highly recommend to friends and... More
