We had the sirloin special which came with choice of potato as well as the vegetables. The place was extremely noisy and was more of a neighborhood hangout (bar area). There should have been a room or area that was conducive to a night out for a good meal. The meal we had was on special but the menu items... More

For a business calling itself a Steak House, our stop here was a disappointment. So, So food and the steak I ordered I could have done better at home.

Great food, great staff! This is a great family restaurant, with a bar on the side for dining or drinks. You will leave here full the dinners are big, you will get your money's worth for sure. I have eaten here more times than I can count and the food has always been great!~

Happily for us Merlinos is one of four places open for dinner on this Holiday eve. Right on the main road near the outlets. You can't miss the cow with the wreath sign. Varied menu from steak to ribs,chicken or burgers priced $12 to $30. There is a bar side and an upper floor. Dress is casual. We ordered steak,chicken... More

Nice enough place and nice enough people. Service was friendly enough and food unremarkable but wholly edible. Fine dining it isn't but good enough to fill your belly and feel like you haven't been ripped off.

The food was great. The only downside was, due to it being a slow day, there was a lot of chatter and gossip among staff. While it didn't bother us, it may be an issue for some. Very "down home" feel.

My boyfriend and I stayed in North Conway for a couple nights for our anniversary/Christmas shopping and we went here for our anniversary dinner. Not knowing any restaurants in the area we went out on a whim and chose this steakhouse and we could not have been happier with our decision! We ordered buffalo wings for an app and they... More

We stayed in North Conway for a couple of days and ate here both nights. Loved the steak tips, garlic mashed potato and their stuffed mushrooms were fantastic. Fresh made bread hot out of the oven. YUM. Great staff, very friendly and quick service. We will be back.

This is one of the "Valley Originals", a group of local restaurants which have never failed to impress. Merlino's is one that we have driven by many times but this is the first time we stopped. The wait staff are pleasant and efficient. We were seated quickly and the waitress took our drink orders. The drinks came quickly and our... More
