Great Private Room Dinning

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

This is our regular go-to (I.e. We visit at least every other week). Whether we sit at the bar (which is gorgeous BTW) or make a reservation in the dining room, we always receive amazing food and service! Love, love, love EM!!!

All the food was good. We always order the double cut pork chop and we love it. Appetizers are very good too.

We have been to this location several times, and it seems like the service has really suffered lately. This time, I was extremely disappointed to the point that I most likely will not return. We visited to celebrate my birthday with my family, and it was my parents' first time here. I had bragged and bragged about this restaurant and... More
