You will not be disappointed!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBar versu Dining Room ExperienceThis was my 1st time dining in the bar. We had a mid week meal. You can order off the bar menu or the regular menu. We opted for the regular menu on this visit. However, I liked the more intimacy of the bar. We had the meatloaf and the pork chop dinners. Both were delicious. The meatloaf was moist and flavorful. The pork chop was cooked perfectly, and I am picky about over done pork. The Ceasar salad is one of our favorites. Next time will dine in the bar and order off the bar menu.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was an excellent experience.It was an excellent experience. The service, staff, and meal was top notch.

Total rely was nearly an hour.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceAwesome food. Greet waiter. Food was a bit slow to come out but when it did, wow was it good!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWaitressOur waitress was great, not too friendly (like sitting down and talking) just right, and she was very attentive to everything.
The only issue, was when we ordered a second drink, it was a little tardy arriving, she blamed it on the bartender, that he/she was stacked up ? Maybe you need a 2nd/3rd bartender ?5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAttentive service, great menu!We had a memorable experience at Eddie Merlot's. Considering that we eat out often, that's pretty rare. Our requests communicated through Open Table were completely and discreetly handled. Our waiter was very attentive and professional. He made excellent recommendations when it became difficult to make choices from a menu that had many attractive options. The food was excellent. One reason I chose Eddie Merlot's was because of their children's menu; in fact I cancelled another reservation after comparing on-line. I don't really like the decor -- it's a little too garish for me, but the layout is good and tables are appropriately distanced. It looks like they have a nice small plates menu, too.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNight outGreat food! Good service! Don't like seeing people in jeans in a restaurant like that. Perhaps dress casual, call me old fashioned.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat eat and atmosphereAlthough the food is pricey and most everything is alacarte, the taste of the food was excellent! This is definitely an awesome place to eat...5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for steaks!Eddies is a great place for delicious filets and creamy garlic mashed potatoes!

For desert my wife and I enjoy the Red Velvet cupcakes they are the best in town!!! You will not be disappointed.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie Merlot'sBeautiful décor. Excellent waiter. Waited too long for bread and had to ask for water glasses to be refilled. Excellent filet mignon. Salmon was a little dry.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMKim is a great wait person....wineKim is a great wait person....wine list is great, just a bit overpriced....great restaurant4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks, but the specialGreat steaks, but the special entrees really shine. Sides are large enough to share 1 between two people. Great chopped salad. It's a little pricy, but not terrible. About 120 for a bottle of wine, salad, two entrees, and two sides. It is much more modern than other steak houses in the area, and a cool feel. Request a side booth, they are cozy!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAdmin Professional DAyThe service was slow for it to be lunch time.

Friendly staff, great service and fabulous steaks.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated a 60th birthdayWe celebrated a 60th birthday and had two children with us. Normally I would not suggest small children at a nicer restaurant, but Eddie Merlot's was wonderful. Very willing to have fun with the children by setting the smoke filled shrimp cocktail in front of the 4th grader who was amazed. They also brought a children's crab cake out early for our 14 month old grandchild, who LOVED it and wanted more. Dinner was excellent as always.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI was there on Easter SundayI was there on Easter Sunday for dinner; Sundays are usually slow, but it was very slow. I ate in the bar, which was empty. The service was excellent and the food as usual was also excellent. The pork chop I had was cooked perfectly and it was very meaty and flavorful. The wine choices were outstanding and since they will cork the wine for take home, it pays to get a bottle. Once again a great eating experience.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMJanet, our server, was excellent.Janet, our server, was excellent. She made the dining experience an excellent one. The Manager Kevin took care of concern we had about the food.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good as always. DiFood was very good as always.
Disappointed in service being a little slow on drinks, bread, etc.
However the server picked it up midway through so I beleive they may have just been overly busy.
I always enjoy this place and always highly recommend it.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMJorge was great. It was busyJorge was great. It was busy and could have used more clean up help.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Anniversaries.Very nice anniversary dinner at Eddie Merlot's. Our steaks were cooked perfectly.

I did however mention we were celebrating a birthday when making our reservations on line. That note did not make it to the restaurant .
