We had a great meal at the Merrick Inn. There is complimentary valet parking.
We liked the way the tables are spread around the different rooms of the old building. It has a real old school feel about it. We phoned ahead to reserve a table on a Friday evening and it was a good job we did as people without were being told to wait 1.5 hours. The cliental told you a lot about the place - mostly local families, by the looks of it.
Our waitress was friendly and attentive and helped us understand some of the unusual local dishes on the menu.
Try the Fried Banana Peppers to start! They Fried Chicken is excellent and the desserts were the last straw. We came away stuffed. Good job we don't live closer, we'd be there all the time!
