Food is the reason for the poor review. The steak was over cooked and had no flavor to it.
The appetizer and sides were all just average.
For the price we paid, I expected much much better.
Now to be fair, I did not give them the chance to send it back and make it right on the steak. I’m uncomfortable asking for that. But the staff was friendly and gave us the chance to say something, but like I said, I’m uncomfortable asking for that.
The drinks we better than average.

Never disappointed when we visit Eddie Merlot’s. We brought some friends for the first time and they were all impressed. Our waiter Ryan was very helpful and while he was busy he always had time for us. All our food and drinks were great as usual. Can’t wait to visit again!

The best dining experience we have had in a long time! Our waiter Javier was excellent. Very personable and knowledgeable. The pace of the meal was perfect with each course perfectly spaced. Conversation was easy as the music was quietly playing in the background. And the food was was amazing! Highly recommend the sweet and spicy shrimp appetizer.

Took my fiancé here for our 2 year anniversary and by far it’s the best restaurant we have been to. Our serviced misty was amazing with our questions and she was so friendly. We both had filet mignon which was to die for and the sides are big enough to feed 2!!

Another great dinner at Eddie’s for my birthday. We were fortunate to enjoy National Happy Hour Day. Our drinks were mixed just right this visit. Loved the Berry White martinis.

The shrimp and potstickers apps were awesome. The grilled romaine salads are our favorite. They gladly split one for us and put on Parmesan instead of Gorgonzola cheese.

We enjoyed the featured Steaks Around The World. Split the 32oz Porterhouse, Italian style, cooked to perfection. Sides of tempura asparagus and Brussels sprouts for our party.

Candace took great care of us as always. She got very busy late but came back and got our leftovers boxed up. We had some fabulous desserts to go. We’ll be back soon.

Popular place for beef and they do have a bison filet. Limited seafood selection and no vegetarian entrée option currently on the menu. While the service was good, the time it took to get food was not (over 30 minutes for apps and then about the same for salads and longer for main course). The food was okay - really nothing spectacular and really not worth the price.
This place used to be better and have better quality.

We were not overly impressed. The steak was a bet chewy. Anyone can charge a lot but you need to have above normal food to pull it off.

My husband’s birthday dinner was a success. The cocktails were spot on. Kendra was attentive and polite. The manager came to see how we were faring. We had the cheese plate, salad, filets with mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts, bananas Foster for dessert. Everything flavorful and yummy.

The New Orleans Mixed Grill was excellent (1st time I’ve had it). Service was first class. Bananas Foster was incredible (as usual). We try to do Eddie’s at least once a year and have never been disappointed.

Celebrated a birthday dinner with family. We all had steaks (filets) Normally they are prepared perfectly. I ordered my steak medium which it was but seemed a little tough for the price. Didn't melt in my mouth like it normally does? Just sayin'
