Steakhouse
Eddie Merlot's Prime Aged Beef and Seafood starts with U.S.D.A. Prime Beef. Only 2% of all U.S. beef is awarded this superior certification. Eddie Merlot’s ages the beef naturally to an unparalleled standard of tenderness and flavor. The chef then personally selects each piece for the optimum proportion of marbling, and texture, before hand-cutting and seasoning the thick, tender, and juicy steaks to your specifications. To seal in the flavor, the steak is flash-sear on high-heat grills. Eddie Merlot’s has created one of the hottest concepts today; the wine bar provides more than 70 wines by the glass and a very extensive reserve wine collection by the bottle. The bar is stocked with all of the finest spirits and after dinner cordials and Cognacs. Eddie Merlot’s boasts a contemporary but stunningly elegant interior design and atmosphere—where guests can have fun, relax and enjoy listening to up-tempo music, while dressed in business or casual attire.

Chefs Special is fantastic - salad, filet & salmon with the best garlic mashed potatoes plus desert! Can't forget their bread, it's the best around. Service was outstanding & atmosphere is nice.

Server was more than pleasant, but her service was slow. Could have been the kitchen, but we don’t know. There were three dessert options, and two were sold out. Dessert chef was overwhelmed which slowed the overall service to our table.
Food was really good.

Overall it was a good value. We had the Chef's grill and King Crab Legs, the crab legs were a little strong flavor and not sweet like I have had before also small in size. It was a lot of work to get my dinner from the smaller legs. I would not get them again.

Our waitress was amazing, pleasant and came to our table just enough. It was our first time out since the covid outbreak and also we were celebrating our 15 year anniversary as we always do at Eddies. The food was amazing as were our cocktails. Will see you next year Eddies in Ft Wayne!!!

We recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and chose to have dinner with another couple at Eddie Merlots. I asked for a "fairly private table" when I made the reservation. I think they seated us at the most private table in the restaurant - we were tucked away in a little alcove with a screen on one side. It provided us with a quiet, relaxed atmosphere where we opened gifts and engaged in enjoyable conversation with our friends. Our waitress was also very attentive and could not have been better. The food was superb. Everything about this experience was exceptional. As older adults, we also appreciated the compliance with COVID-19 safety measures (the staff was masked and the tables provided plenty of space for social distancing).

I do miss MANY of the menu items that have been removed. Blue Cheese Chips, Fried Green Beans, Artichoke Dip, etc. These have all been removed.

Additionally, the new menu is COVERED with cilantro. Why? I am not going to a Mexican food restaurant. The addition of fried parsnips on top of steaks is a very unwelcome change.

All that said.... The staff is always professional and courteous. With specific instructions when you order, you can get an excellent meal
