So thankful Merrick Inn is able to offer a safe outdoor dining experience. My husband is in a high risk catagory for COVID-19. Merrick is one of the few places where we can have an exceptional dining experience and still feel safe.
Our service was outstanding. We sat in the large dining room and it was very relaxing. It was my wife’s birthday and she loves the calamari. Highly recommend
over priced and under performed on the food. Would not recommend for dinner, and the drinks are certainly managed.
Ribeye has outstanding flavor.
The patio and bar seating areas have an absolute amazing ambiance.
The inside dining area is definitely more refined but strangely had the slight feel of being in a funeral home parlor.
All in all a wonderful dining experience top to bottom.
Wonderful experience as always!! Our server was fabulous and dinner was amazing.
OMG!! The heirloom tomato casserole was off the charts delicious !! And have the filets! They melt in your mouth.
Great place to relax and enjoy good food. Outstanding service. A little pricey.
Everything from the food to the waiter and the great service provided was awesome
Jack B. And Cameron jumped through hoops to give us a 10 star experience. Food was awesome.
Birthday dinner - we enjoyed the heirloom tomatoes and walleye pike . Thank you to the server who submitted our dinner requests early . Best of Lexington restaurant - a consistent restaurant with polite staff and a relaxing delicious dinner.
I had out-of-town guests and they were very impressed with both the service and the food.
It was my husband’s birthday dinner. We made a reservation to sit indoors and they still set us outside. I told them that is not what our reservation was for but they began to argue with us when I could clearly pull the reservation up on my phone and see that it was indoor seating. Our server was fine. Our food was fine. But it was hard to enjoy anything after that.
Merrick is the perfect place to grab a drink, a sandwich, or an amazing meal. They have one of the best outdoor dining areas in Lexington. Pro tip: If the daily special is the bacon-wrapped scallops, order it.
It was our first time at the Merrick Inn. We really enjoyed out dinner, the service and the atmosphere. We will be back.
Food was amazing, patio was beautiful and quiet. Server was great and very helpful.
Great place, food, drinks, atmosphere all top notch
We had a wonderful experience at Merrick Inn for dinner on outdoor patio with friends. The food was amazing (I had the grilled grouper special) and the group had the tomato with goat cheese and grouper appetizer. Drinks were great (try the pineapple martini). Cameron was our server and she was A+ in customer service including attentiveness, friendliness, and timeliness. We will definitely request her again next time! Thank you for a wonderful and safe dining environment.
We dined inside on this visit. Great service; the server made excellent recommendations! Food was prepared perfectly, with unusual combinations. We started with the heirloom tomatoes topped with fried goat cheese, which was delicious. I had the fish special, halibut with caprese topping. My fish was cooked perfectly. Hubby’s fried chicken was good too. Merrick is always solid.
Everything was great!!! This place is our favorite place in town. They never disappoint and the Bourbon slushies are the best.
Awesome food, atmosphere, and service.
Always excellent in every way!
Had a wonderful time, as always! Thank you!
Service was exceptional!
Always a great dining experience. I love the food and the atmosphere.
Great evening outside and one of the best patios in Lexington!
We sat on the pool patio which is a new area for dining and was wonderful. We had the grouper special which was terrific, tried the triple crown appetizer for the first time (definitely recommend), and had great service!
We had reserved an out door seat. They could not accommodate due to sprinkling rain.
We were seated inside, waiter had mask pulled below nose every time he spoke and came to our table.
Made us uncomfortable.
Celebrated my 50th birthday and an awesome experience. Fantastic service!!
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner on the outdoor patio. Very relaxing atmosphere. We had the wall eyed pike and the grouper. Both were amazing. Corn Pudding great!
Merrick Inn never fails. Great service with wonderful food.
Reservation at 9:00. We were not seated until 9:35 and did not get attention from our server until 10:00. After we did meet our server, she was more interested in a table with 4 couples than our 2 top. She was dismissive and only gave us any attention after the larger party left their table. When I asked to order around 10:20 (babysitter at home so we unfortunately did not have unlimited time), she said I’d have to wait and returned about 15 minutes later. My food was ok, but my husband did love the fried chicken. The ambiance is great, but our service was sadly very poor and our reservation was not honored. Bummed that this was our first date night post quarantine.
What an excellent evening. Food is out of this world, drinks are amazing. This is one of our favorite places in Lexington. Service is always outstanding. Highly recommend
Excellent service and food with pleasant atmosphere
We have never had a bad meal or bad experience in dining over 20 years with this wonderful establishment. Feels like a resort in the summer and a cozy spot when cold!!!
Had family in from out of town. We sat on the patio close to the pool. The weather was perfect and the food was wonderful as usual. Our waiter was very personable and help to make our experience even better.
Enjoyable wall-eye dinner! The chocolate cherry bread pudding was delicious. Our favorite restaurant in Lexington!
Birthday dinner for my lovely wife. Metric is her favorite patio.
One of my favorite places to eat. It never disappoints.
I always enjoy my visits to Merrick and this one was no exception. The NY strip and filet were excellent and so tender. The service was great as usual.
In light of the health scare we are in the middle of, it was quite refreshing to see menu prices had been reduced with no reduction in service and quality. I very much applaud the ownership of Merrick in their attempt to keep customers coming in and their staff employed. Now, less than two days later the restaurants are closed, but I can assure you when things get back to normal I will be supporting your establishment more than I already have!
