Merrill & Houston’s Steak Joint
Wonderful food and drink selection! The service was incredible as well!
Our food was dry and not what we were expecting
Food was lukewarm. Lots of foot traffic where we were seated. Steaks were cooked as ordered. Good salad.
Server, service food was excellent
As it always is
My wife and I eat out frequently at quaint supper clubs and critique the experience. Merrill & Houston's rated high. From the waitstaff to the presentation of the food to the taste. Everything was great! The steak was cooked perfect, and the seafood linguine had a great garlic butter flavor, big tasty shrimp, scallops, and topped off with a lobster on top.
Been here a few times. This was by far the worst experience when it comes to the food. Just not up to par on the steaks.
Delicious food, expensive, a nice place to go for a celebration
My husband's steak was quite underdone (ordered medium; however, it was barely medium rare)--we ultimately decided not to send it back due to the anticipated extra wait time. For a steak joint we had assumed they'd know how to prepare a steak.
Perhaps even more frustrating was that we were seated (among numerous others) in what appeared to be a cold and uninviting banquet room. Not at all what we expected when we made reservations over a month in advance. The lack of ambience definitely made us feel like the $100+ meal was not worth it.

Very good food cooked to your perfection !!!! BUT VERY VERY PRICEY !!!!
This was my first time at this restaurant. I like to be seated some place quiet so I can read my newspaper. I had a nice quiet place..not well lit
Lisa was my server. I ordered a drink and relaxed for 10 min. I then ordered a Tenderloin filet which came with augratin potatoes. I upped to a Caesar salad. The salad bowl was not very cold and the bottom plate it was on warm...the salad was wilty at best...tasted fine but was not nearly cold and crisp.. the rest of the meal was better steak and potatoes were done to order and tasted good
They did a fantastic job with the precautions taken during this pandemic, felt safe dining there. As always food and service were spectacular!
We enjoyed a nice date night at Merrill & Houston's in Beloit. The tables were well spaced for social distancing. We had steak and ribs, both very good flavor and value. We also enjoyed the cocktail menu which had delicious drinks!
Amazing as always! The service is always on point and the food is outstanding. Highly recommended!
Excellent as always!!!
The noise level in the back was a little loud. But the food was amazing as always.
Great anniversary dinner at Merrill & Houston’s. It was both our first time dining there and we loved it! They have us a “happy anniversary” card and champagne when we sat down. Such a nice touch. I had French onion soup and the salmon entree. He had “The Iron Works” with turkey cauliflower soup. Delicious meal with great service! We will be back!
There for a birthday dinner they even had a birthday card on the table the food was very good the servers were very friendly very nice experience
My husband and I were celebrating my birthday and drove nearly 1 1/2 hours one way to eat at Merrill & Houston. Why? Because I wanted to try something different from the restaurants in Madison. And what a treat it was! I had the duck and I'm telling you, this was one of the best meals I have ever had. Our waitress was friendly and informative, the ambiance was beyond lovely and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I am telling all my Chicago friends to meet me here for dinner. I plan on returning many, many times.
While the food was pretty good, the atmosphere was not. It was our anniversary so they did acknowledge it with a card on our table but we were seated right next to the kitchen and had to hear the doors slam the entire time during our dinner. There were other tables available that they chose not to seat us at. Very disappointing. My husband wanted to stay and have dessert and we chose not due so that we could get out. Also, we were seated very close to the bar with sports on the tvs. Not something I care to look at or hear when I am trying to enjoy an expensive dinner
Good food. Waitress was awesome. The drinks were not so great. The soda was flat. The Moscato was $10 a glass. A little overpriced. It was horribly noisy.
Great food and service I would most likely go back.
What a great night. Perfect weather, good company and great food and drinks. This is such a fabulous place to take family and friends.
We were celebrating our anniversary and the setting inside was sooooooo relaxing. They have these fantastically comfortable leather dining chairs that I could sit in f o r e v e r!
Loved the complimentary champaign and the greeting card wishing us a happy anniversary. Nice Touches! And the food was the BEST EVER!
The food was OUTSTANDING and they have the best Brandy Old Fashioned ever!
We had an amazing time celebrating our Anniversary!
Food is great! Staff was very friendly! Great place for a nice dinner.
Outstanding service and food. Great selection of foods.
Worth the visit to the relativized downtown Beloit, WI.
Like always excellent service and a great meal!!! Absolutely love this place!!!!
Sat outside on the patio. Beautiful evening - no bugs. Roasted red pepper soup was superb! Steaks done to perfections.
It was a delightful dining experience. Food was delicious, and the staff was very friendly
We had a great time celebrating our anniversary! Thank you for making our night amazing!
Everything was great except for how loud it is in there. We had to literally raise our voices at each other just hear what the other was saying to us from across the table. The music did not help the situation. If it were me I would be playing piano or lite music.
I heard about the “Bites of Beloit” event so took advantage of the special fixed price menu. Wonderful food and service. The crab stuffed mushrooms and the Creme Brûlée were my favorites.
We had a wonderful dinner with our son and daughter in law. The food was amazing! Our server Racheal was awesome!
This was our fourth time to visit, and we live an hour away! Excellent service, very clean and of course the food is terrific...not to mention the unique cocktails and great choice of wines and beers.
We highly recommend Merrill & Houston's!
Actually had table of 4. All had steaks, which were excellent. Had the “Oscar” added to one, also excellent. Cocktails were perfect also.
Took my wife there to celebrate her birthday, she had the seafood alfredo and I had the grilled salmon. Both were absolutely fantastic. When finished with dinner my wife was treated to birthday treat of bread pudding alamode. Had a fantastic server who treated us as if we were old friends.
Can't wait to return. Definitely recommend
We had a great anniversary dinner...tables were well spaced out, servers were masked, and the food was fantastic.
Great food and service!
We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary and our dinner was amazing!
