We were taken well care of. We had a great experience for our 1 year wedding anniversary and now will consider spending our 2nd there, as well!

1/2 wine on Sunday but limited selection.
Waiter could not process $10 Open Table reward.
Found out they were entering total bill amount and no the $10 reward value.

Kim is always the best server and remembers all the small details of her return guests.
Arron is always on the floor engaging with the customers. Anyone that does not feel special at Eddie Merlot’s must not enjoy the attention given by the entire staff. Love love love every time I go and can’t wait to go back. Oh by the way..... the food is the very best in town!!

We have been to Eddie Merlots many times, but this time was very disappointing. We did not have a cocktail or appetizer and we spent over 2 hours at our table. Too long to just sit. Food was ok, but portions small. Not great food. Server was very nice, so not sure what took so long. They were not crowded on a Friday night.

It’s hard to put a finger on exactly what the issue is, but I just feel like overall the quality of the food has declined the past few times I’ve visited this room. There was basically no one in the restaurant, but we waited a really long time for things to come out. When you pay what you pay at this place, you expect top-notch knock your socks off food and it’s just not there.

I was disappointed by the quality of the food. For the price paid I expected something better. The beef was cool, the crab was not good. I have attended other Mother's Day dinners at other restaurants and was not impressed with our experience.

I made a reservation for Mother’s Day for myself and my children who are 15 and 13. I was disappointed to see you could only eat off of the buffet and not order from the menu. The food, although good, was not hot (Luke warm at best)on the buffet, and was not the caliber of what you get when you can order from the menu. Our first round of drinks did not come in until after we had finished our first plate~frustrating. We were told about a pasta special where you could fill out a piece of paper and it was endless however our waitress never offered the paper to us. I was extremely disappointed to pay a little over $200 for the three of us. Definitely will rethink going back when there are many other comparable restaurants within the vicinity.

First time coming to Eddie Merlot's in Indy. Upon arrival was very impressed with decor and atmosphere. Made reservations ahead of time and was seated promptly upon arrival. Once seated we were not greeted for the first 15 minutes and another server noticed this and ask if we had been greeted. About 30 minutes into being seated our server arrived to take our drinks. After ordering our server went M.I.A once again and other servers had to find him in order to get any refills or requests. The steak was outstanding!! The crab legs were not fresh and seemed as if they had been cooked several hours before. For the amount of money spent at this restaurant, we expected much more. When spending that type of money the service has to be better.

Charles provided exceptional service and the kitchen provided excellent food, portions, and quality. This has to be one of the top steakhouses that I have ever dined at.

I have been to this specific location three (3) times and it has been consistent each time. Well done (not the steak -- the service)!!

We are Platinum Members and always expect a special evening when we done at Eddie Merlots. My husband ordered the bone in Filet ...... (we were treating ourselves) -- and he was disappointed in the cut ... not exactly what he expected and much fattier than a boneless filet. The taste and preparation were fine but the cut of meat was disappointing.
Kim was our server - we specifically asked for her and as usual she was friendly, courteous and very attentive -- she really adds to our dining experience.

I’ve been a fan of Eddie Merlot’s for several years. The last time I was there, (6 or more months ago) however, was not very good - both food & service. All 4 of us probably wouldn’t have come back, but both couples had gift cards. I’m glad we did. This time they did not disappoint. The food was very good. It would have been excellent had I not ordered my steak to be more well done than it should’ve been. (Definitely my fault). The service was excellent & our waitress was delightful!

Love this restaurant but that last two times I have been there the service was extremely slow. We had a table of 6 people and literally everyone at the table was handed someone else’s meal.

Met cousins/friends from Terre Haute to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary since we were out of country at the time of their party. Wanted to do something special for them....dinner at Eddie Merlot’s is always special. Great meal, great conversation! Again, Happy Anniversary Joe and Louise! Thank you EM for an enjoyable evening!

I had a ribeye and my wife had Sea bass. The steak was cooked to perfection! Exactly the way I ordered. The sea bass was outstanding. The sides were delicious. The French Onion soup was the best I've ever had.
Our Server added to the enjoyment of the evening!
Finest dining experience I've had in some time.
Thank you.

As always, excellent food at Eddie Merlot's...you can't go wrong. Our server, Keith, was probably new as you could tell he was a bit scattered, but he was super nice and very accommodating with our requests. Start with the bananas foster. You won't regret it. ;-)

For the cost I would have expected more responsive service. The food, while tasty, was not well presented. Again for the cost I would have expected a more elaborate plate presentation.
Overall not a bad experience, but we could have gotten a similar experience at a number of other less expensive restaurants.

The service was not that good our waitress seemed overwhelmed not sure if she was new. Several times our beverages were empty for long periods of time she did not check on us frequently enough. When we got our food it was cold I think due to her getting it late to us we come here a lot and have never had bad service until this past Friday.

The price points are to high for what you get. I had a $56 steak that I asked for A1 to eat with it. You shouldn't need A1 with a $56 steak.
