Derrick is always great!
My wife and me thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at the Merrick Inn. It was our first visit to the Inn and it well exceeded our expectations. The service was excellent, the food was superb and the relaxed and historic atmosphere was appreciated. We plan to tell family and friends and to return soon.
Merrick is consistently a great place to enjoy good food. It never disappoints.
Great restaurant! The fried chicken is excellent! I had the Merrick Ribeye and it was great. I loved the bernaise sauce.
Our waiter was attentive and helpful.
One of our favorite places to celebrate birthdays. Dinner was delicious.
You can never go wrong here-Christy is the best, as is Alex
Moved away and always lookforward to dining here when we come to town. It never disappoints from host Alex to excellent service and scrumptious food.
Great experience. Had clients in from out of town. They loved it!
My sons 21st Birthday. A tradition. My father brought me to the Merrick Inn for my Birthdays and I wanted to bring my son for his 21st. He really enjoyed it.
Steak was perfectly cooked, sides were delicious, and specials were great. Enjoyed Calamari as an appetizer. Always a great expirence at Merrick, it never disappoints
This was my third or fourth time at Merrick Inn and was my worst experience by far. A group of four of us went and none of us were overly thrilled with our choices. The calamari appetizer had an asian-inspired theme and was pretty good but, after that, it went downhill. My friend's filet was very undercooked and was proudly priced similar to the world-class filet at Tony's . My fish special was uninspiring. This place has never been spectacular in my opinion but this visit was particularly bad. Maybe just an off night, but I won't be back for quite a while. Much better options elsewhere in Lexington.
After a 25 minute wait for our reservations, we were seated & the meal proceeded smoothly. Service was fabulous; our waiter was attentive but not overbearing.
The food was hot, delicous & the serving size was very adequate. We were so full, there were no takers for dessert!
Server was excellent, food was great and server was perfect.
Good food and great service as always. My favorite restaurant to eat at.
I will Return again and again on my travels. Absolutely one of the best meals I’ve had and in an exceptional ambiance.
Very good service and food. They have a large and nice patio we'll try out this Spring. Recommend.
Always good- highly recommend
Always a good meal at Merrick! My wife and I were celebrating a late valentines dinner since we were both sick earlier in the month.
The Merrick Inn never disappoints. I was treating my friend for her birthday and she said it had been forever since she had had a lovely dinner like we had Monday evening. It is my favorite place to dine in Lexington. Although he is no longer with me, my husband and I celebrated many special occasions there such as anniversaries and birthdays and I have wonderful memories of our special times at Merrick. Even though they have the southern favorites, they are always expanding the menu with new creative dishes. Service was impeccable.
I look forward to the next time I will be dining at Merrick!
The atmosphere and decorations in this old home are very neat. The staff was so friendly and prompt. We were greeted right away and got sat immediately. The waitress was also promo and told us about the specials. The appetizer we ordered was delicious and came out super fast. Our meal was hot and delicious. Would highly recommend going there. We will be visiting again soon.
It was very loud this time due to a large group of women who thought that there was no one else in the restaurant. Normally is is quiet and everyone tries to keep conversations down so as not to disturb other diners. Alex was as he always is, gracious and welcoming.
IT WAS MY WINE GROUP AND MY BIRTHDAY. THE FOOD WAS FABULOUS AND WE HAD A GREAT TIME. THANK YOU TO OUR WONDERFUL WAITER FOR MAKING THE EVENING SPECIAL!!!!
It was amazing from start to finish. Clay was awesome and gave us the history of the restaurant. We will definitely return soon. Sorry about all the frenchfries on the floor. They were very accommodating to our 2 year old granddaughter.
My wife and I had a wonderful meal and great service before going to a show!
Classy friendly quality
OH MY.....WHAT A GREAT EVENING...BECAUSE OF THEIR 50/50 SPECIALS WE WERE ABLE TO DISCOVER MORE FAVORITES!!!!!!
Our waitress was exceptionally friendly, but not overly so, and she was patient with our questions. We enjoyed our food without complaints, except for the walleye pike having some bones.
We celebrated my birthday and it was perfect! The food was great and service was too! We had to wait a little longer for our table bc the party in front of us was taking longer but other than that, everything was great!
Everything, from feeling welcome upon entering, to the charming server, to the value for the best meal I have ever had through Open Table, this was OUTSTANDING!
Experience was excellent! Jillian was our waitress and was very attentive and food was absolutely incredible. We got the filet and bone-in ribeye. Grouper fingers were awesome and to finish it up the strawberry shortcake and chocolate creme brûlée were fabulous. Great bourbon and wine list. We had suits on but plenty of people in jeans and button downs.
Everything was very good. Food was perfect!!! I’m still upset that my favorite dish almond chicken is off the menu:(
However the pecan crusted tenderloin was spot on.
One of my favorite places to dine.
Food was great along with the atmosphere, service was excellent, look forward to going back
The food was absolutely wonderful!! Was a great choice in celebration of our 20th Wedding Anniversary!!
Great evening with great food and service. Always a go to for a nice evening out to relax and have a wonderful meal.
We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed our time there. Our waitress treated us great, thanks for a superb evening!
Wonderful food, ambiance, staff & the most amazing bourbon list I've ever seen. I highly recommend you try it out. We were on our way from Chicago to Asheville & will make this stop every time.
Arrived early for our reservation and we were still seated almost immediately, Our server Evan was great especially as we had never been there before. The food was a little pricey but it is a spot I would recommend trying at least once
Overrated. For good home cooking Ramsey's is better. The atmosphere is the best thing. Hostess stood at the table beside us for 10 minutes fawning over some regulars but did not acknowledge anyone else in the small dining room. Tables too small food was not great. Bones in fish made it ackward to eat. Chicken my husband ordered was not very good. Used to love going here. Will not be back. For fine dining Dudleys or Malones are much better
I’ve heard about this place for 10 years, and just never got around to trying it. While looking for ideas for a date night, a co-worker suggested Merrick. The food was fantastic. They had a 2 for $50 special going on, and it was waaaay more than we could eat. Definitely a great value for the upscale nature of this restaurant. I will, without a doubt, be returning.
