    We had a FABULOUS experience here. It was our first time dining at Eddie Merlot’s, and we will absolutely be returning. Our server Michael was incredible. Everything was brought out to us in a timely manner, and we were checked on frequently by the wait staff. Our steaks and sides were incredible, by far the best steaks we’ve ever had! Overall we could not have asked for a better experience here.

    We have never been disappointed at this location. The service is always excellent and the food top-notch. The only drawback is pricing. We would come more often but our budget just can’t afford it.

    This was Mother's day brunch and to be honest, I was disappointed. While normally the food at Edie Merlot's is outstanding, the only brunch dishes that were above average were the meats from the carving station. But the most disappointing was that the seafood didn't taste particularly fresh. The shrimp had an off texture and the salmon was very "fishy" tasting. Service was fantastic, the buffet was laid out well but on the whole it was just fair and we were disappointed.

    We had a large party to celebrate my son’s graduation. Eddie Merlot’s nailed it. Great food, top notch service and a wonderful experience for my son. I would highly recommend Eddie Merlot’s as the place to go for a fine dining graduation party/dinner. Kudos to the server who made sure every single thing was top notch. Thank you so much.

    Went to eat for our daughters OSU graduation on May 5, 2024. It was a really nice experience. The restaurant was immaculate, the food was very good but Aaron our waiter was exceptional! He made sure to put our daughter first on her special day and we never went without drinks, our used plates were cleared away quickly and he made sure everything was taken care of.

    Waiter must have been new. Had to read the menu when we asked him questions. He seemed a little lost. We were there for a birthday, but he never mentioned the complimentary desert until we were ready to leave. Beautiful restaurant with a creative menu. Weve been there several times and for special occasions. Was a little disappointed this time. Love the clamshell booths.

    Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be anything special or spectacular about Eddie Merlot's now. Food was half cold and the filet I had was on the tough side. So many other restaurants out there struggling to stay open and serving better food that I'd rather give my patronage to. Sorry Eddie Merlot's but probably my last trip there, at least for a while.

    My husband and I went for our 15th anniversary. Not our first time at this restaurant, and definitely not our last either. When booking I stated it was an anniversary event and they gave us a card and a complimentary dessert. We will definitely be dining there again.

    Easter Brunch is always amazing at Eddie Merlot’s! They have a little bit of everything for everyone no matter what you’re in the mood for! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert options were served at their Easter Buffet. We were a little sad to see the price go up and bottomless mimosas go away, but overall a wonderful meal where everyone left happy and full. The buffet is filled with so many incredibly tempting options you’ll never try them all before you’d get full! Don’t let the word buffet scare you, it’s just as well executed as their a la carte dining.
