Was there for Valentine's Day dinner. Service was attentive, but restaurant was crowded and staff seemed a little overwhelmed. Restaurant was noisy with close seating which made it hard for normal conversation. Food was very average at best. Food took a long time and taste/quality similar to much less expensive restaurants. Definitely expected more.
Overall just average. While service was good with it being a busy night, very overpriced for the food and restaurant atmosphere.

Everything was fine throughout the night, the food was very good, but we ordered a to go order of steak and mashed potatoes, they sent us home with salmon and two scoops of mashed potatoes, looked like it was left overs from someone else's food.

Everything was great, the appetizer took a bit longer than expected and was covered by manager without question (along with an apology when it was brought to table). They watch there order times carefully. Great attention to detail and wonderful waiter who described dishes in a way that made your mouth water.

My mother and I were looking for a nice restaurant. We were able to make a reservation on open table and thought we would give Eddie Merlot’s a try. It was such an amazing experience. Our server, Jared, was the best server I have ever had. Very friendly, efficient, and so knowledgeable of the menu. You could really tell he took pride in his menu and restaurant. The food was delicious and the wine menu was perfect. Thank you Jared and Eddie Merlot’s. We will definitely be back.

John Kelly is the best GM in Michigan. Scott was our waiter and he was great. We like sitting in the bar area for dinner. They have live music on most weekends.

john recommended a great bottle of wine and it was awesome. The price was $79 (not $179).

Food was good, but I thought overpriced for the experience. All of the upholstered chairs need attention as the top 4 inches of every chair in the restaurant seemed they were taken from an old folks home and were either worn or extremely dirty. We were the first customers of the restaurant for the evening and, after being seated, were informed that someone had reserved that specific table for two hours later and that we could either move or make sure we were finished in time for them to prep the table.

First time at this restaurant. Excellent atmosphere, and great service. The appetizers were awesome. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. some of the best I have ever had, and the side dishes were just as good. We would definitely return again for a great meal.

Eddie Merlot's was very enjoyable. We sat in the bar area in a nice low top table so we got to have the best of both worlds. The Oyster's Rock was wonderful! The filet was perfect. I wasn't quite prepared for the prices, especially the wine list...beware if you take a date!

We dinned at Eddie Merlot's for my son's birthday having never eaten there before. What a mistake. Two of our 3 orders had problems. The salmon was plated without the spinach on the plate. It was then brought out to me in a gravy boat. My husband wanted his steak cooked medium (pink in the center) and it was dripping blood inside. The server completely agreed and quickly sent it back. I ran out of water twice (it was my beverage) and had to wait quite a while for a refill. The server brought us the dessert menu but then didn't come back for almost 10 minutes to take our order. Both tables next to us also had trouble. I overheard one table say to our server "we thought you abandoned us". The other table waited a long time for their completed bill. They could see the server talking to a table of guests (someone she seemed to know) and got up to flag her down. This is not the type of service expected from a nice steak house. We will never go there again. There are to many other good restaurants to pick from.

The waiter forgot to bring bread. We reminded him twice. Finally, it came after our appetizers. He then brought the wrong salad. The right salad never came. When we got our entrees, we said we didn’t want the salad anymore and he said he’d take it off the bill. He didn’t forget the bill but he forgot to take the salad off. We have been to this restaurant about six times and received good service once. The food is always delicious but they need to improve the waitstaff in a big way.

We found that the prices have gone up. We think more than necessary. Took a lot longer than expected. We love Maker's Mark Manhattan's. $16.00 is the highest price we have ever paid. That includes at Capitol Grille. We were shocked. Probably won't go back.

We were seated at 9pm and were not out until 11:35pm on New Year’s Eve. Yes, it was busy but over 2 1/2 hours is a little ridiculous. We had to rush out to make sure we made it to our midnight plans on time. The server was apologetic and I do t think it was his fault but certainly could have been timed better.
