The kitchen staff and our waiter brought their A-game last night! It was one of the best steaks I’ve had in a very long time and the carrot cake was phenomenal. Our waiter, Tony was amazing- he gave us great suggestions and ensured we had a fabulous meal.

Waiter and service were great. Bison ribeye was perfect and has a lot of flavor. We celebrated our anniversary and were treated with crème brûlée. Thanks for making the evening great!

Two in our party had steak; two had seafood. Steak was seared to perfection. Seafood was melt in your mouth. Various salads and sides were top notch. Birthday girl got a free Vanilla Crème Brûlée and candle to blow out. No birthday song here! A wonderful atmosphere.

You can go to a lot of places for fine steak & seafood, but you simply can't beat Eddie's combination and service. We've been to almost all the steak houses in Cbus and nothing compares.
To each their own, but Eddie's is the owner in our opinion.

Excellent filet mignon and the absolute best dessert we have ever had. A layed chocolate brownie with vanilla sauce, flaming cognac, hot chocolate sauce, whipped cream and raspberries.

We went for our wedding anniversary, it was our first timing dining there and it was exceptional. The food was so good! I’m a vegetarian so the chef made we a special plate of grilled veggies and grains which was so outstanding! My husband got the Waygu steak and couldn’t stop raving about it. Everything was perfect!

Great food and service. The sea bass, steaks and oysters were all cooked perfectly and the flavor was wonderful. The bar lounge seating was great for a little more casual atmosphere.

This was our first time there. I will say it was disturbing that some people were maskless in this type of restaurant. The service could not have been better. They were so friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious. I loved the ambiance. We would come back again when they are more serious about COVID.

We tried Eddie Merlot’s during restaurant week and really enjoyed it, decided we definitely needed to come back! My meal was outstanding! I had the Filet Del Mar, cooked medium rare and it was perfect! My husband had the 7oz filet cooked medium and Eddie’s potatoes, his steak was slightly over cooked (but he is not the type to say anything) but he thought it was still good, not amazing, but good. (Thus the reason for the 4 stars) The Eddie’s potatoes were fantastic! We shared the peaches and cream for dessert, our server was amazing! There was a little bit of confusion as to whether or not there was walnuts in the biscuit so they promptly made me a new one without a biscuit, very impressed! The atmosphere was wonderful, the service was amazing, our server was attentive without being overbearing, which I very much appreciated!
Overall, I’m sure we will try it again!

My wife and I are frequent diners at Eddie Merlot's. We always sit at the bar, relax and enjoy "date night", and catch up with Cathy and Greg. Last night (Friday, August 20th) my wife and were in deep conversation, enjoying our dinner and we were asked to move barstools to accommodate a larger party. My wife and I enjoyed a cocktail, had our salads and the middle of dinner and told to move. After getting settled in new seats, our meal was cold, water glasses removed, and just simply gave up on finishing our meals. What started out as a relaxing evening away from kids ended on a sour note. Given the restaurant options available, and being treated like this, we won't be back.
