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.

We love Eddie Merlots. Friday night we celebrated our 40th Anniversary together and the evening couldn't have been better. We arrived and enjoyed a cocktail before ordering. The wait staff spent a lot of time just conversing with us along with management, all wishing us a happy anniversary. Our server Ryan was exceptional. The food was spot-on. I would not hesitate to recommend Eddie Merlots for any occasion or just a nice dinner out.

Our waiter was very attentive, friendly and made excellent recommendations. Without a doubt their Chilean sea bass is a must to order.

Fine steak dinner. Pleasant waitress. Nice and quiet with plenty of social distancing on a Thursday evening. Wish you could get a blue cheese encrusted filet mignon. Great wine list.

We greatly enjoyed our dining there. The service was the most outstanding aspect.
My filet was more than excellent. The others enjoyed the crab legs keeping in mind that they are not fresh out of the water. The salads and bread were so enjoyable.

Service was excellent the food quality was terrible! Our food was quite cold actually. The steaks came out cold the only thing that was hot was our soup. Ordered a salad it was so saturated with dressing we hardly even eat it. No one even asked how we liked it or the reason that it was not eaten. I would probably not come back

Took a friend out for her birthday. Food was great as usual. I got the filet Del Mar, which included a small filet mignon Oscar style, 4 broiled shrimp, and fingerling potatoes. All perfectly done. My friend had the 7 oz filet mignon and I’m told was very good. Service was excellent. Drinks were perfect. The crème brûlée was excellent. All in all, a great meal. I’ll be back.

As a former steakhouse cook I am very hard to please when it comes to steak. I will say that the porterhouse was the best steak that I have ever had. The service was amazing. Ashleigh was very nice and that is something that I appreciated very much.

Dining during COVID leaves something to be desired, but Eddie Merlot's has done a good job of coping. Personally, I miss the big menu cards some and of the other personal touches that are not currently possible, but with that said the food is still amazing! I had the Kobe beef and I cannot recommend it enough! Definitely a favorite spot and we will for sure be back.

The filet was amazing, as always. The only flavor in the vinaigrette for the sea bass was vinegar. Honestly tasted like they just dumped vinegar in it and called it a day. I’ll pass on the sea bass next time.

The interior really needs updating. The style is out dated by a couple decades.

Our server was exceptional. She was very attentive but also provided enough space so that we could enjoy our evening.

Food quality seems to be less than our usual experience. The presentation of the food in general was lacking from past years. We are regular Eddie’s customers and there is a distinct difference in the quality. Times now are tough and we understand that so forgivable but I am fearful for their ongoing success. I hope they can recover.

My wedge salad came out with old, bitter lettuce but it was quickly replaced when we brought it to the waitress’ attention. Everything else was great.
