We were in NO Conway for a few days to do some shopping and touring. Wanted to find a nice place for dinner and we sure didn't go wrong with Merlino's. Thoroughly enjoyed everything from apps to dinner. Service was excellent. Was so glad we...More

The food was pretty good, but the steak was cooked a little too much for my taste. The medium rare was barely red and the medium was basically well done. They had a nice little feedback slip and box that I liked.

I went solo for lunch today and ordered the chicken breast bruschetta sandwich, expecting a bland, boring, typical chicken sandwich. I was so surprised when this beautiful sandwich came out with all of these wonderful flavors and textures. It was incredibly affordable as well. Loved...More

First time visit for us. Was quickly seated close to the door when we arrived. Wait staff was friendly- bar was pretty rowdy and noisy. The bruschetta was pretty blah- too thick and not a ton of flavor & mozzarella sticks were really thin. I...More

We saw some recent negative reviews but didn't let that daunt us. A bartender at a nearby pub recommended we try Luciano's Pub within Merlino's and he was spot on. Not sure how petty the earlier whiners were but we had a great time. The...More

Stopped here yesterday for supper. I have never been here before. After driving by and noticing the windows seemed greasy on the inside we still stopped. We waited for someone to come to the hostess station, which seemed unprofessional with a McDonald’s soda cup there.....More

We ate at Merlino's for the second time. We ate there last November and loved it! This year... not so much. I ordered fries with my meal and as soon as they were placed on the table there was an overwhelming fish smell like they...More

We weren't real hungry so we had soup and an appetizer. The soups were good and the appetizers, bruschetta and dumplings were tasty. We would stop again should the opportunity happen again.

We came here from the nearby Hampton Inn and Suites for dinner. We got a table with no problem. The food was good as was the service. The bar is small for a place this size although we did get seats quite quickly.

The odor in the upstairs dining room had me gagging. As I looked around, I could see a very old and dirty carpet. Windows were very, very dirty. The tables were made like a wooden cutting board that had no finish! Porous wood dining tables?...More
