Customer service was outstanding. Food was exceptional. Prices were high, but we had a gift certificate so we were able to splurge. The waiter Jeffrey was awesome, and the manager checked on us a few times. I would highly recommend this place.

We really enjoy Eddies. The managers and staff are always very nice. We never had a bad meal, and they change specials up, very nicely. Keep up the good work. We will be back soon.

Haley was our server for our Valentine's dinner and everything was great, as always! One of us had the Artic Char with shrimp and the other had the New England salmon. Both were excellent!

Never disappointed at Eddie Merlot's - just as good as any downtown Chicago steakhouse - and a lot easier to get to and enjoy. Food and service are consistent and outstanding. Our server, Ray, was friendly, prompt, attentive, and knowledgeable. Food is prepared to perfection. We tried the filet and NY strip combo for two and it was FABULOUS! We'll get that again!

Loved the Chateaubriand ~super! The portions have really gone down over the years in terms of sides and amount of meat. Otherwise, very good! Great ambience and love the wine. Sad the Eddie Merlot Cabernet is no longer being made.

Was very nice evening, staff were great. I didn’t appreciate being in the same room as small children for a special occasion. Made for a noisy date away from our own children 🙄
