Visited with my brother whilst on vacation from the UK, hoped to get a top quality US steak but left disappointed. Service was ok had to prompt the waitress for top up drinks a few times, but the food came out quickly, we chose a starter platter which was pretty tasty and good and I was hopeful for a good...

We stopped for an early dinner after spending the day in N. Conway. We arrived at 5 and were seated right away upstairs. It got quite busy, several large groups and several families. Server was attentive. The meal was fantastic. I had steak tips with teriyaki sauce. They were tender and tasty, cooked just right. Baked potato was as expected.... More

I always come here it's usually pretty good, but this time, table was dirty with Food crumbs, took awhile for some one to come even just to order drinks (water, coffee etc.)Place not crowded, so why the table wasn't washed at least wasn't a good start for me.

I sure hope it's changed since we were there but this place was the worst I'd ever been to. We had to wait forever to get someone to tell us there was a wait - finally got taken seated upstairs and forgotten about - food was cold and tasted awful - steak was tough and chewy - said I'd never...

We stopped in for an early dinner / late lunch and we found to our pleasant surprise we could order off of either menu! The food was great but we need to give a shout out to our server Elaine who was just fantastic!

My spouse and I went for date night. We got seated right away. It was a bit of a wait for service, but our waitress was very pleasant...a bit frazzled and overwhelmed, but she was doing her best. The food was great when it arrived and we will be going back, just hoping they have more waitstaff.

I have been eating at Merlino's for years. I've yet to have a poor meal or bad service. Today was no exception. My wife enjoyed her fried scallops with sweet potato fries while I savored their surf and turf. The poor waitress was the only one on, so she was trying to serve all customers, yet my wife and I...

On the North Conway Cookie Tour and saw this restaurant, glad we stopped. Had the pot roast, it melted in my mouth. Excellent wait staff.
