Our reservation was for outside. We waited 15 minutes for someone to come to our table for drinks. Once we ordered we waited about 50 minutes for our order which was fish tacos and chicken wraps. One of our party had to go inside to follow up. There was no follow up by a manager, no apology.

What a great restaurant to go to! The food was very good, the service was outstanding, everybody was very friendly, they have an outdoor area and live music on certain nights. There’s just a great vibe to the whole place and I would highly recommend it.

Charming location and very friendly service! Restaurant itself was pretty inside and on the patio.I do wish I had asked on the reservation to be seated upstairs where there was live music since there wasn’t a table available when we arrived. My husband really enjoyed the prime rib. The entrees off the grill were over cooked which was a little disappointing, but the appetizers were yummy and the menu had a lot of options. Will probably give it another try sometime.

The lamp chops and stuffed mushrooms were amazing. Filet mignon and crab cakes were good but nothing to brag about. Sat outside on nice day however train came by 3 times in the hour we were there (not the restaurant fault) overall very good but felt like it was overpriced

Meritage is a regular for us. We love salmon, and Meritage does it well— never overdone and dry. We especially enjoyed the live music on the patio last Sunday. Service is always good.

Always have wonderful meal at this place! We’ve really appreciated that there is plenty of outdoor seating during the last year. The staff is always very friendly, the food is delicious (must try: hummus plate, daily fish, lamb chops, burnt orange old fashioned), and they are very prompt with service. It’s a very cute area too. This place is a gem!

It was a great experience. We had a drink at the bar before being seated on the 2nd floor. There was a very good acoustic guitar player and the sound did not effect conversation at our table. The food that we had was excellent from the bruschetta appetizer to the filet and lobster entrees. The desserts of chocolate cake and chocolate creme brûlée were awesome. The service we received from the bar, prior to our meal, and our waitress was outstanding. All in all, dinner at the Meritage was what you hope for!

Steak was excellent. Potato was cold. Bartender never checked on quality of food. Never offered dessert menu. Had to ask for check twice. If I’m paying $50-60 a head for dinner, I expect to be asked how everything is...

My fish special was fine. My wife’s pork chop was over cooked a bit. Salads good. Desert fine. 1/2 hour late being seated. Place is horribly noisy even with COVID downsizing. Server was fine; hostesses seem bored and completely ignored my comment in the reservation about our 45th anniversary. Overall very disappointing; won’t return and would not recommend. 4.5 stars is very misleading.

I love this restaurant. We hadn’t seen one of our friends all winter, I picked the Meritage to meet. We always feel so comfortable and welcomed when we come in the door here. We love the atmosphere. The bartender Dave is hilarious.. but also very good at his job. Courtney our server was impeccable .. she has a gift for making you feel very welcome and serving you with out rushing you. I had the fish sandwich with a twice baked potato , it was delicious. The fish was cooked to perfection. It wasn’t an oversized piece. It was just the right size. I liked the seasonings that were on it. Kudos to the chef ....

Our server was very attentive. It was a beautiful evening so outside dinning got busy very fast even with a reservation. They ran out of wine glasses but our server was able rustle 1 up! We tend to have our celebration dinners at Meritage. It was my parents 74 wedding anniversary. We had my dad's 95th birthday celebration just a few years ago. You never disappoint. Kuddos
