Very good restaurant, upscale

This is easily one of the best dining experiences. The dining room is perfect for the type of food served, the wait staff is well trained and fits the mood, and the food selection is great. I'm not sure the total food quality matches the price, but...it is very good. If you want to impress or... read more

I thoroughly enjoyed by 16 oz sirloin steak. It was oh so flavorful, and I highly recommend it. I was annoyed that I had to purchase each side. The portions were enough to share, and they tell you that before ordering. Still, the food wasn't so great that I couldn't find a good steak elsewhere for a lot less total... More

Have been here many times and it seems as time goes on the food quality has diminished. I was disappointed with the "blackened" steak that I requested.

I ate at Eddie Merlot's as part of a large business group. The service was impeccable and the food was prepared as ordered. Steaks were seasoned nicely. Even though we were a large group, the wait staff did not miss a beat. I would definitely return.

We went to celebrate a birthday and it was a wonderful experience. There were five of us and we had different entrees. We had salads, appetizers and the main meal. Everything tasted great! Everyone in our party loved it and was still talking about it two days later.

Had heard a lot of good things about Eddie Merlot's. Made reservations for Valentines Day for a romantic evening. We arrived on time for our 7:45 pm reservation along with the dozens of other diners. They were extremely crowded, after a 25 minute wait we were led to our table. On the way to our table we cut through the... More

This was our second trip to this restaurant in the last two months. We went back again because of the great food and perfect service. The second time we went was on the day before valentines. We loved the live band, spinach salad was great, the filet trio I had was as good as it gets and will order again... More

My husband and I went to dinner here expecting everything to be superb. Well, the food did not disappoint, however the atmosphere did. The restaurant sits along a highway exit and across the street from a gas station. The location is less than ideal, especially if you have a window seat, like we did. Once we got seated, we were...

Best ever such serving. Accompanying chopped green salad and creamed spinach were superb. Comp desert for birthday observation was a crowning touch.

I regularly frequent this restaurant for drinks and business dinners. I find the staff to.be very friendly and highly professional. The location (about 20 miles north of the city) is very easy to get to and has lots of free parking. But the real attraction here is certainly the food. The steaks are not inexpensive but they are worth every... More
