We were very impressed with our first dining experience at Eddie Merlot’s. Mary was our waitress, she was excellent. The crab legs were delicious, and banana foster for two is a must try. We will definitely be back to enjoy another wonderful meal!

Awesome experience. We went on a Friday during lent where you get all you can eat crab legs for $59. It was outstanding. Ask to have Kim for your server or in the bar ask for Jason.

Empty restaurant, waited forever. Medium rare came out overcooked. Waiter visibly pouted when we didn't order appetizers or bottles of wine.

Better value at longhorn steakhouse. Never go.

Breanna took exceptional care of our party of 7. Never a moment where we wondered where she was. She anticipated our needs perfectly.
From someone who has been in the service industry for several years myself, I am particularly picky when I dine out. She was personable and thoughtful and everything a server needs to be. We look forward to our next visit and hope to be served by Breanna again.

The food and service was perfect! The Chateaubriand steak was delicious as well as the carrot cake. I would highly recommend the Chateaubriand. One detail they did miss was a happy birthday message for desert. I put a request for this in the notes section of the reservation since I saw photos of this in other reviews. Other than that, it was a wonderful dinner.

The food (oysters, ribeye, sea bass, crème brulee) was incredible, however what really made it a great night was the wonderful service. Shane was our main server and he provided the perfect balance of knowledge and friendliness. He had answers to all of our (many) questions and made us feel welcome every chance he got.

The only thing I would change is the price for the amount of food- while the food was delicious and all cooked perfectly, I will say some of the servings of the main dishes seemed a bit small for the price (specifically the sea bass).

Overall I am incredibly happy with my experience and will absolutely be letting others know that Eddie Merlot's should be their next date night spot.

A lot depends on the service staff. Unfortunately the service this evening was poor. Waitress neglected to bring the wine menu after saying she would 3 times. She insisted on bringing the desert menu , even though we said no thanks 3 times. She added a dish to our order and when advised as much, declared it would not be on the bill. It was. Just unpleasant!

The steaks are one of the best and definitely in my top 3. The service could of been much better. My drink order should never be forgotten about then run dry. We considered ourselves lucky to get 1 drink.
The service should be better for the price your paying. However the end result was worth it!! The steaks were awesome and cooked to perfection.
Although the service was less than expected I must give a 2 Thumbs up to the chefs!!

They have no idea how to cook a steak. Paid $100 for a steak that was burned to a crisp and dry on the outside, and ice cold raw on the inside.

One of Indy’s finest restaurants! I love the atmosphere, the service, and the food. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a nice romantic night with a loved one, or a girls night out. The service is unbelievable. Everyone is friendly and courteous. I will be returning soon.

We've dined at Eddie Merlot quite a few times. Our experience two weeks ago was below average. My filet was charred on the outside and very dry inside. I think we both agreed that this is no longer our favorite restaurant.

This was our fits time, and it will definitely not be our last. My wife and I were celebrating our 1st anniversary as well as getting probably our last date night before our first born makes her appearance. Everything was fantastic, Jason took great care of us and Dan (Sous Chef) came out to the table to personally speak about our meal and ensure that everything was up to our expectations. The food was all prepared perfectly and the ribeye was absolutely delicious and tender. My wife is a creme brulee junkie and she said numerous times that it was the best she has ever had. It was a great experience for both me, and my 38 week pregnant wife. She really appreciated the extremely comfortable chairs in the bar area as life is getting more uncomfortable by the minute at this point.

The service was attentive. One of the best ribeyes I’ve ever had. Our server was knowledgeable and offered suggestions for drinks and dinner. Ambiance wasn’t the best as we were seated in a back room that looked more like a conference room. Will have dinner there again for sure.
