Eddie Merlot's - Lincolnshire
Special occasionsWe have chosen to come to Eddie's for our family special occasions, college graduations and birthdays. The dining experience is memorable and deliciously fabulous. One member is a vegan and the chef always prepares a beautiful vegetable and or fruit meal. We can all celebrate and enjoy our time together at Eddie Merlott's.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOutdoor diningFirst time there. Nice to sit outside and if you do you participate in the bar menu as well as the restaurant menu. Great small plates and burgers, sandwiches. Food very good. Will definitely be back.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Dining ExperienceVery early Saturday night dinner and wanted a quieter place for conversation and great food for out-of-towners. WOW the décor was unexpected and AWESOME! Really enjoyed the evening!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLincolnshire's BestThis is a wonderful restaurant. Everything was great with a special thanks to our great waiter Joe. Service was right on and all the food was cooked to perfection.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time diningGreat place, beautiful decor and atmosphere. Outstanding food! Service was exceptional5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie'sWe had a group of 7 and all the food was delicious. Food was served in a timely manner.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAl was a wonderful server,Al was a wonderful server, food good, as always and we enjoyed the flaming brownie dessert.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter Than ExpectedFrom it's location, in an obscure strip-mall, I'd assumed there would be a limit to what we could really expect, but I was wrong. My expectations were exceeded in decore, service and the quality of the food served. My date and I had gone out to Morton's for a celebration dinner, and were left dissatisfied with the overall experience. Our recent dinner at Eddie Merlot's was better in every category.
I'm sure we'll be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMKind of pricey, but thereKind of pricey, but there are several less expensive items on their menu. Everything we ordered was cooked perfectly.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's the bestWe love Eddie Merlot's. The food is excellent as is the service. We prefer the ambiance of light music in the background coupled with a quiet dining room. You pay a little extra but you get extra with anything on the menu being great and first class service.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had 7:15 reservation onWe had 7:15 reservation on a Friday night. While the restaurant was very busy, our reservation was on time. The service was good, but our food took a bit long to arrive. Our dining experience lasted just over 1-1/2 hours. A bit long, fortunately we didn't have after dinner plans.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!Everything about this restaurant was Excellent - food, service, and ambience!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent and serviceFood was excellent and service was wonderful. The two reasons why I go to a restaurant and keep going back. The sea bass was to die for and very generous portions.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our fifth visit andThis was our fifth visit and we really enjoy the food and service.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprisedThis was our first time dining here & it was lovely. We will definitely go back soon. Very good & friendly service.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie Merlot's!!We had an amazing dinner. This was our first visit and really can't express how enjoyable our experience was. We have made this a must-repeat (a lot) restaurant!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantMy wife and I really enjoyed over evening at Eddie Merlot's in Lincolnshire. Everything was perfect. We liked it so much that we already have reservations there in July.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDowntown Steakhouse in LincolnshireExcept for a mediocre french onion soup, our experience at Eddie Merlot's was wonderful. Our party of 4 all enjoyed the appetizers, steak you could cut with a fork, perfectly seared ahi tuna, & amazing dessert. The truffle parmesan fries are a must! The only thing preventing me from giving an overall score of "outstanding" are the prices. The atmosphere is elegant, but the prices make it a birthday & anniversary destination, rather than a random Saturday night place. I'm not sure in Lincolnshire they will survive charging these prices, as I can't imaging filling seats on a weekday when it's difficult to get out of there for less than $70-80 per person. I'll go again though on a special occasion.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMeverything a la carteWhile the food is very good, all the beef items are a la carte and a dinner gets pricey very fast.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!It was our first time at Eddie's and it was a very special occasion - my wife's Birthday! The Wine was exceptional, the Food was Incredible and the service was fast, helpful and friendly!
We will be back often :)5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTop NotchThis is the place to go for an excellent dining experience!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFeels Like VEGAS!Best dinner we've had since moving away from L.V.!!! The decor is very different but in a great way, our service was over the top but never intrusive, and the Tomahawk Ribeye could have been cut with a fork! The coffee presentation is probably the coolest I've ever seen.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's not cheap, but the foodIt's not cheap, but the food is excellent. Chateaubriand was flavorful and came with two sides. Carrot cake dessert was literally big enough for four. Very friendly, informal service. Pleasant setting in a large restaurant.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent! A must try!WONDERFUL! Amazing food, best steak I have ever had! Hostess team was not only easy on the eyes but extremely helpful and friendly. Our server was great and provided a lot of input and help while we made our food selections.

Besides my husband's steak being cooked just right, the Truffle Fries were to die for. We even went into the bar for a drink afterwards to hear the band. Very cozy, and comfortable. The bartenders didn't let you wait to order like some other places. I highly recommend this place!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great place to dine.What a great place to dine.

We will tell all of our friends about Eddie Merlot's!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is exactly what we wereThis is exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our anniversary. The ambiance was amazing with bright colors (not the typical dark and dingy steakhouse decor). The Rock Shrimp for an appetizer was phanomenal and you can eat the bowl served with the calamari in it. Chateaubriand was sliced table side and mixed berries for dessert was flambed table side with at least a three foot flame (nice presentation). Our servers recommendations were outstanding. He made our anniversary enjoyable. So much so we took a picture with him. After dinner we had an after dinner drink in the lounge. The music was so much fun. These three guys really reved up the crowd.We had quite the evening and already made reservations to return on Mother's Day.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is amazing!!! ThisThis place is amazing!!!

Highly recommended! The Ribeye melts in your mouth and Eddies potatoes are great!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waitress Carol was fantastic.Our waitress Carol was fantastic. She made the meal very enjoyable.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDisappointingGreat bar scene, great service, nice ambiance, generally limited menu and disappointing food. For a steakhouse I was greatly disappointed in the dry, overcooked steaks (medium well ribeyes) and seared beyond recognition rubber scallops. Sides were good, desserts were huge, but entrees were a big disappointment (to all four guests).4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place, a bit betweenNice place, a bit between a "pete Miller" and Ruth Chriss. Prices more like Ruth Chriss. Food was great but I thought my 18oz ribeye was a bit small. More like 14oz. Also very salty. Potatoes with onions were tops. Service top notch.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOur second trip was wonderfulOur second trip was wonderful Our server Pam was terrific. It was a delicious meal and at Eddie Merlot's you do get what you pay for. Can't wait for our next trip back. The staff is wonderful4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food AND service!!!!!This was our first visit to Eddie Merlot's, and I highly recommend. The staff is friendly and extremely competent. We were seated at our reservation time, waiter came by after we were settled in and brought menus and wine list. Told us the specials, and gave us time to peruse the menu. We had a very nice, reasonably priced wine, steak Diane with mushrooms and sauteed spinach as our sides. The steak Diane was professionally prepared tableside, and the steaks were cooked exactly to our specifications (med rare). The sides were also done well, and all portions were generous, but not huge, perfect in our opinion. Since it was a special occasion, we decided to splurge and have dessert, and decided on Bananas Foster. EVERYTHING was perfect4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice experience! StaffVery nice experience! Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Sent steak back, little too done for medium rare. Offered food while waiting; promplty brought perfect steak. Then comped our dessert.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere was very nice.The atmosphere was very nice. Lots of room choices which is nice for large groups, intimate dinners and even the bar with music. We sat in the bar area, the music was great and not too loud to talk. The service was excellent. Never felt rushed. The bread was amazing, like cake. The salad(spinach) was a good size to share, but it was a little boring. My salmon entree was very good, and a nice size portion. LOVED how the coffee was served and it was excellent.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I really enjoyedMy wife and I really enjoyed our dinner. Our waiter made us feel extra special when we told him it was a rare night out for us without the kids, and all of his recommendations were absolutely perfect. Looking forward to going back, with or without the kids!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch service, great foodTop notch service, great food and warm atmosphere. These guys do it right. Staff is friendly yet professional and go out of their way to ensure an amazing experience. Live music in the lounge is an added bonus.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent spot in the middleExcellent spot in the middle of suburban boredom. Older crowd. Very good food. Excellent music. We will be coming back!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding in every way!!This restaurant is an absolute must! We went for our anniversary and it was perfect. The decor is spectacular and the service is so friendly and attentive. Wedge salad, perfect. Bread, perfect. The filet was cooked to absolute perfection - the parmesan truffle fires are dangerously delicious, I would go there just for a plate of those! They brought us a red velvet cupcake with a shot of cold milk on the side for our celebration, free of charge. Excellent martini's also. We joined the platinum members club as we will return many, many times.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was outstanding.The service was outstanding. The food is good, the steak was nothing special and the sea scallops were disappointing, very small. With Flemings down the street, I feel their steaks are much better.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWatch out for Joey the waiter,Watch out for Joey the waiter, He'll up sell you hard on everything, sometimes without asking.
Otherwise a wonderful restaurant!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNot cheap, but a terrificNot cheap, but a terrific ambiance and restaurant interior. We had the prix fixe dinner special; my trout was excellent, but my wife felt the glaze on her salmon was too sweet. The waiter was very attentive and worked hard to sell up, especially with their Platinum Club frequent diner option. He seemed a bit disappointed we didn't drink more or have more expensive entrees! All in all, a nice evening, and we will go back someday.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great, the bestThe food was great, the best steaks we've had in a long time. Salads and appetizerss were outstanding. Would absolutely return.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy bone in Ribeye was outMy bone in Ribeye was out of this world as well as, the brussel sprouts and recommended glass of Red Wine were excellent. The Bananas Foster and coffee were incredible. The only negative is that when we first arrived we felt we had too much attention. We did not have time to relax and experience the restaurant. The waiter was too attentive as well as, the General Manager hovered around the table before he finally said hello. He stopped by twice which was not necessary.
My meal was one of the best ever however, it was very expensive. $100 per person is a lot of money for Lincolnshire. We will definitely go back however, it will be on Special Occasions only.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
