“You will be glad you stopped by”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Marvelous little bistro with a friendly staff and a nice wine list.
We received a generous pour of three reds and a white with a five cheese platter that came with toasted sesame crackers, salami and grapes. The cheese selection was very nice including cranberry Stilton, smoked Gouda, brie, sharp cheddar and an artisanal cheese we forgot the name of, but all were tasty and more than enough for four people.

Wine by the glass was $7 to $11 in large stems. The cheese platter was $20 and could have been a nice light dinner for two. We certainly recommend this place.

“great comfort food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Merrill's is a fun and great place to hang out with friend and family when visiting Mount Dora. The owner and her young staff are a perfect host. The band is perfect for this type of venue, specially when one of the players is married to the owner of the place. A must when visiting Mount Dora

“mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

The setting is very nice out on the deck. View of the water. We didn't have the burgers but all of the other food was mediocre. From the arnold palmer that was mostly iced tea to salsa with no spice to an average execution of a grouper reuben, it was mediocre. Service was good.

“Best Burgers in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

We weren't crazy about their baked pita "chips", but their hamburgers are what you want to get. We had the portabella burger with regular french fries. Excellent! Lot's of cold craft beers and good wines.
