We ordered a seafood platter for appetizers...not on the menu....4 jumbo shrimp and 6 raw oysters. The presentation was nice with dry ice overflowing...but the oysters were small...very small...and not too fresh. My bison ribeye was nicely done except it was too fatty. I thought bison meat was supposed to be much leaner. Of the 17 oz. cut, I had... More

We arrived on a week night around 7pm to an almost empty restaurant. We had a great personable waiter who took our drink order which was a little slow getting to the table. When our salads came they were pretty small for the price like most things we ordered were. One in our party asked for his steak to be... More

Spontaneously we decided to go to Eddie Merlot's for dinner tonight. We felt immediately comfortable entering the restaurant and Chris, our waiter, took care of us in a very attentive way. We have chosen the sesam calamari with three different dips (lemon, ginger, mustard). The dips are just incredible turning this dish into a real delicacy. For the entree we... More

We did not have a reservation on a Friday night but were seated pretty quickly. Very friendly and attentive staff. I had the most amazing pork chop with peaches. Very nice size portion. There was also a 3 person band in the bar area. The band was missing one person that night but they were still very good and deserved... More

Visited Eddie Merlot's for the first time with 3 others on a business trip. We were ready for a higher end steak meal and this served us well. I ordered the fillet cooked medium rare and it came out perfect. Red in the middle, outside charred nicely. One person in the group had the "trio of medallions". It looked great... More

Excellent atmosphere. Darrin was our server- very knowledgeable and the perfect server. Jorge was his assistant and he was personable and extremely polite and friendly. And the food! Such a wonderful meal! We had the filets and the Parmesan truffle fries and asparagus. The portions were huge and perfectly prepared. Our drinks were also perfect. Excellent experience. Will definitely visit... More

This is a good restaurant for fine dining. The dining room is elegant, open, and attractive. There is a pleasant buzz in the dining area, but you are still able to easily carry on table conversations. Service is excellent. On a recent visit our waitress was pleasant, knowledgeable, and gave good suggestions without being pushy about anything. Several other servers... More

Oh my, the food was so great. Had shrimp appetizers. They were huuge. My entree was filet medallions with three different sauces. I could not decide which was best. At the leftovers for breakfast.
