Merrill & Houston’s Steak Joint
The server hardly came to us !!! Couldn’t get a drink and food wasn’t cooked it was overcooked!!! I know it was busy but $140 for the bill I expect it to be better all around . Never will this place be recommended they didn’t care .
Everything from the appetizer, fresh baked bread to the dessert was absolutely amazing. Our service was incredible and we cannot wait to go back.
Food is always fantastic! Server was great! Always a great choice for date night. Prices are on the more expensive side, You cant go as frequent as you'd like. You can go to some pretty good steak joints downtown Chicago that are less expensive.
But great to have a nicer restaurant like this in the area.
Steaks were superb, staff attentive. Fine dining at his best
I wanted it to be so great based on the prices. The service was great but the accoutrements that came with my prime rib were so lackluster. The onionsrings were of course cold and flavorless. Then they give you a pile of mushrooms that were apparently not canned although I still believe they they just had to be. They were awful with such a aftertaste .
Everything was delicious and the environment was beautiful. It was a little loud but I don't think that can be helped.
Dinner was delicious as always! Love the atmosphere!
Live music was way too loud for the venue size. Service was rushed and impersonal. Server waited until he brought our entrees to tell us they were out of one of the two sides we ordered. Food was okay... but they'll need to step up their game if even a mediocre chain steakhouse comes to Beloit.
Kris and Madison were outstanding. Food was delicious.
Food was delicious, waitress was wonderful.
Excellent service! Tasty food!
The food was great! Love the atmosphere of the restaurant. Small but intimate. Great for a date night!
Great service and great food!
I ordered the duck. If I owned the restaurant I would be embarrassed to serve this. It was one of the worst meals I have had. They are not afraid to charge a hefty price for it. The calamari we ordered was cold and it was a rather small serving. The other two people ordered steak and their meals were fine.
Absolutely outstanding drinks and food. We loved the atmosphere and our server Rachel was very accommodating and friendly. We will be making this a regular stop!
But............we are in Beloit, WI. Surf and Turf $99.00 is ridiculous. I had a guest from Chicago who was shocked.
The back room they put a soon could’ve been a little dimmer
I thought the lighting was a little too bright and that’s the reason for the ambience level that was scored
the dessert was terrible we had the chocolate pyramid moose whatever
it was hard (half frozen) my opinion it should’ve been softer
Best steak I’ve ever eaten! Hands down way better than Ruth Chris
Our steaks weren’t cook to our specifications. Our waiter wasn’t aware of the specials of the evening. The music wasn’t in sync with the mood.
We love it here!! It’s worth every penny spent!! We have been here three times and have requested Rachel to serve because she is so amazing!!! The food is delicious & our service is always on point!! We highly recommend going here! I have had the fillet & lobster twice and it just melts in your mouth!!
My steak had no real flavor. Very disappointed in that. I've had steaks with outstanding flavor and this wasnt one
Went for Valentine’s Day. They had special menu which advertised a Champaign toast. We were not offered a toast. The waitress forgot our salad until we said something when our main entree showed up. And I requested my steak be cooked medium. It was very rare. The staff came around multiple times asking if we needed a box while we were still eating. The pistachio crusted lobster was amazing though.
Great food and service as always!!
The food is always amazing. The best dining experience around. I love the atmosphere and the servers and staff are always friendly and attentive.
Our waiter was very nice. We have no complaints about him. My wife ordered a steak medium and it came out rare. They tell you soup is included with your meal but do not tell you that the french onion soup is an upgrade. We will not be returning.
I went to dinner with a friend of mine .. I had a taste for a steak and I was not disappointed the tenderloin filet topped with blue cheese was excellent.
The appetizer Shrimp Dejong was good kinda pricey for the amount but it was good.
Desert ,, was chocolate cheesecake very decadent and delicious and we also had creme brulee it wasn't the best I ever had but it was good.
The service was adequate, we sat for too long before we were served, then it got better but when I am at a dinner for two and bill is close to two hundred dollars, I expect some fuss made about being there.
So very glad we went to Merrill & Houston’s. The food was superb! Our steaks and tuna were cooked to absolute perfection and the garlic parmesan au gratin potatoes were fantastic! The service we had was the best we’ve had in a long, long time. We will most certainly be back.
Been there a dozen + times, best steak I’ve found in the country, all food is top end. Great setting, good waitstaff. Loud acoustics, bands play in lobby/ bar some nights, gets difficult to converse at tables. It’s a must go.
The food and the service was GREAT... The waitress Rachel was very knowledgeable about the steaks and drinks. I would go back again for sure.
Merrill & Houston's Steak Joint has been our favorite for years. We know what to expect from the "Greeting at the entrance, the the wonderful Lemon Cake desert. Great service, great food, all while being enclosed in history.
Appetizers outstanding. Perfectly cooked filet. Great cuts of meat at our table. # steaks and 1 rib. Cooked to perfection. 1 table there and sat us right next to that table with rest of the room empty. Kind of strange. Waiter took a while to get to the table.
Sent steak back twice to get medium, came back third time well done. Seriously... you can't cook two 6oz. petite fillets to medium.
Cold center and very rare first try on both steaks, second time medium rare (dark red middle) third time, new steak well done and dry. Very dissatisfied! How can a higher end restaurant totally screw this simple steak up?
Booked online for 7pm, showed up 30 minutes early (planned to have a drink at the bar) they were able to seat us immediately! I had noted that we were celebrating my brother in laws birthday, they acknowledged it a few times and offered him a complimentary dessert! Very good food, attentive servers/waitress - everything was fresh, clean, and great!
Disappointed in the food and atmosphere. I had hoped for a nice evening celebrating but it was so noisy we could not enjoy our time. We asked to be moved and the hostess never came back. The food was cold and disappointing. This used to be my favorite place!
Service was great. Seating was on time. Value for price. A little pricey. Steak was good. Not great.
Went for our anniversary and everything was excellent! Great meal. Great cocktails. Relaxed atmosphere.
To loud! Service not any better than I would receive if going to another, more reasonably priced, establishment. Two of the four steaks ordered were some of the best ever. The other two were misrepresented and a big disappointment in flavor and tenderness. I expected it to be a step or two above my local supper club and it wasn't. I'd probably give the atmosphere a better review, but it was just too loud. I also came for the Tomahawk Pork Chop with Nueskes bacon, and it was sadly removed from the menu.
Service is slower
Our Server was nice
The only thing was the room was so warm and they couldn't fix it thermostat was at 80
