A group of us celebrated a friend's birthday at Eddie Merlot's on Saturday Night. We sat in the bar area, which is beautiful and casual. Our server was fantastic and made it a fun evening while providing excellent service. The Chef's Favs and specials were delicious. Everything was perfectly prepared from the cocktails, to the appetizers, to the entrees, to dessert. A few of us had the Carrot Cake, which was wonderful, and two of us had the Bananas Foster, which was not only a fun experience, but, again, perfectly prepared. We will all definitely be back. A fun atmosphere, great service and fantastic food... What else could you want!

We had to ask our waitress if we could order drinks. She brought the drinks and walked away. We had to call her back over to ask her if we could order appetizer. Then we had to call her back over to see if we could order our food. She only had 2 tables in the bar area and stood at the end of the bar talking to a customer the whole time. We had to ask twice for our check. She handed us the check and my husband handed her our card. She looked at him and walked away. We seriously thought we were on candid camera.

We traveled 2 hours (one way) from where we live to spend our anniversary here. We had one close by, but it recently closed. After waiting for a really long time we were told by the manager that my husbands lobster had to be re-done (not sure what that was about). Said the chef was not happy with it. When we finally got our food his food was good and fresh mine was not. My filet was not cooked properly so they had to take that back. Lucky for me my husband shared some of his while they were fixing mine. By the time mine was fixed we were done and we ended up packing it up. We love Eddie Merlot and it has become a tradition for us for special occasions, but we may have to find somewhere else to go. Manager and host were extremely nice and helpful! I think the kitchen was definitely having some issues.

The prime ribeye I got didn't have much flavor and was pretty thin. Not much of a sear on the outside. My wife's NY strip was much better

We had three people in our group that went and it was a great experience for all of us. The wait staff was attentive and answered all of our questions. The food and wine were delicious! Our steaks were cooked perfectly, even though we all requested different doneness levels. Cannot recommend Eddie Merlot’s enough!!

Not great…..some of it might be due to not enough help, but for that kind of money, the manager/s ought to step in and help those that have too many large tables….. I will say that the sweet and spicy shrimp appetizer is amazing, bread is tasty. My husbands steak was Luke warm at most, but to return it to the kitchen would have kept us there longer than we wanted…..it was a 2-1/2 hour experience that wasn’t amazing so we won’t be back.

We celebrated our anniversary at Eddie Merlots. We not only got a sweet card congratulating us on our anniversary but we got a complementary dessert. Our server , Jenny, was great. She was friendly and attentive. We had a great time celebrating there. We will definitely be back.

From the beginning I was concerned. The exterior of the building was in poor condition. Service was extremely slow but we were willing to overlook that. Our shrimp appetizer was delicious. Entrees were terrible. My filet was over cooked and the sides were cold. We rarely saw our server and our waters were refilled only once. We waited for bar orders for 30 minutes. Entrees took well over an hour. Took 30 minutes to get our bill. $200 for a terrible experience. Management knew we were unhappy but did nothing. I overheard her tell two tables “they had dropped the ball” that evening. Definitely will not return.

The steak was one of the better steaks I’ve ever had, but the rest of the meal was not so great. The crabcakes tasted fishy and not in a good way and the tempura asparagus was way too heavy I would’ve liked just a thin coating but instead The asparagus got lost in a deep fried batter. Our waitress was not very attentive at the time we were ready to get our check we probably waited about 20 minutes for her to bring it to us and the restaurant was not busy. The drinks are way over priced.

Was a little disappointed in the appetizer which was calamari. I thought that it was too much breading Couldn’t taste the squid. Also was room temperature when it was brought to the table and had become a little bit greasy. I expressed my issue to the waitress who promptly removed it from the table and of course took it off of the bill I was sorry though that it had to happen. Other than that I thought my meal was very good and my dining partner I thought his meal was good

my steak was cooked perfectly and was delicious. The tempura green beans is another must have at this place. Lastly, get the bananas flambe for two.
