This was my second visit. Both times the wait staff didn't perform in alignment with pricing or food quality. This time we were sitting at a table in the open area where there are no obstructions for proper service. Staff frequently reach over people and plates to deliver or retrieve items. I'm no stickler for which side service must come from, but when not seated in a booth there's no excuse for reaching over customers and their plates. Our waiter also didn't check in frequently. We had purchased a bottle of wine. We ended up refilling our own glasses. For this price range, there are other options in town with better service.

We both had burgers from the special Make-A-Wish menu so Eddie Merlot's will make a donation to the local Make-A-Wish chapter. The burgers and the heirloom tomato salad and crab bisque were all delicious. Service was great a usual. We have never had a bad experience at this restaurant.

Great food, had the bone-in-filet which was prepared perfectly. Would have preferred to have it without any toppings but went with the server's recommendation. Still tasty, but not needed. Next time will try the bone-in Bison ribeye, which looked like a great option.

I had the yellow fin tuna which was a disappointment. It was 32$ and was just average at best.

Eddie Merlot’s is always our Christmas Eve destination. We popped in for dinner Wednesday because of a special menu which donated to charity. The steak was melt in your mouth deliciousness. The chopped steak was excellent and offered a variety of tastes and textures. The service was impeccable as always.

It is overpriced and our wait between courses was very, very long. We even waiting a long time to get our bill! There was a bothersome sound...a thump, thump, like a bass from maybe music playing. We couldn't hear the music but only the sound and it was annoying. The food was just so so and certainly not worth what we paid...actually I have had better elsewhere.

Everything was great! Not rushed at all. Out of a group of 4, 2 of us ordered the summer menu and were really happy with the salads, crab legs, surf and turf and bottle of wine. My friend said she would have liked more of a sear on her black and blue fillet but she said it was delicious. The other 2 ordered calamari and oysters and the bison fillets which they really enjoyed. The bourbon brownie was a great way to end the meal. I think the nuts were even toasted. A+. Our server was great. She knew where the oysters came from. Experienced!

The food was excellent!
Our waitress was the perfect mix between attentive and quietly in the background.
We loved that the noise level did not interfere with the conversation around the table. This was our 1st time there and we would definitely go back!

Eddie Merlot's continues to be one of my favorite spots for dinner, an appetizer or maybe just a drink at the bar. the atmosphere is classy but not stuffy, the food is outstanding and the staff is very well versed on the menu. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the bartenders. they mix an excellent drink and make their customers feel welcome . A great experience.

Would have been a five star, but service was very slow. Waiter went missing several times and we had to ask for help from others of the wait staff. A shame because the food was excellent and the ambience what one would expect at the price point offered
In addition to not checking on our party of four when in the main dinning area where we were there would be perhaps 6 tables being served by 3 waiters, ours was just not very professional. He leaned on the back of the booth and acted too causal for the type establishment
