    the food was wonderful, the drinks tasted good, Scott Patrick is amazing, but service was a little slow. Our waters were empty for awhile, we had to wait a long time to order dessert, and when we went to pay the waitress never came back so I just left the money on the table. overall it is an fantastic venue and we will be back.

    Tried this new gathering place in Merced for a second time. The staff was pleasant, entertaining, and attentive. You can tell the Mainzer is utilizing the local university. Ordered the tacos (carne, pescado, and shrimp). When they arrived, the shell was cold and tough to chew. When the food was picked up from it's cute little stand, the shell broke and all the ingredients spilled out (on all four tacos). The taco became a salad which was difficult to eat because of the cute little stand. If the shell had been heated, it would have been more pliable so it could fold without breaking. Got the bill and a bit of shell shock - four tacos, two drinks, and two cocktails came to nearly ninety bucks. Walk two blocks down Main street and get better quality food at a lower price.

    The show was great and the food was great. I went with a friend and dinner for both of us was under $40. I enjoyed the fish tacos and my friend had the steak sandwich, which was also delicious. So nice to have a dinner and show in downtown Merced on a Thursday night. My only criticism was the stools (at taller tables) were pretty uncomfortable by the end of the show. The Mainzer is definitely one of my favorite places.

    The french toast was delicious and enough to share between the three of us. We also had the chilaquiles and they were spot on.

    We went for Sunday brunch, early. The food was excellent. It was served beautifully, and in a timely manner. The service was friendly, and helpful. The only draw back was the noise level. The music was so loud that it was hard to hear the conversation from across the table. Given the service, and quality of food, this was a great find.

    Food was very good and fresh! Our waitress was very sweet and helpful but had a lot of people to serve. We enjoyed eating outside and stayed for a while, eating and taking. Look forward to visiting again. Prices are a little high, so it's not an every weekend thing.

    Visited Saturday, November 20th. FYI - weekends it’s the breakfast menu until 2pm & menu switched to dinner menu. I had their version of Biscuits & Gravy which was a suprise & I will have again. Gravy is made from chorizo sausage ( a brown/red gravy) over two of their homemade biscuits & two perfectly poached eggs. The better half had a skillet dish which she commented that was very good. The younger one at the table had their Street Tacos which he enjoyed. We also enjoyed their margarita flat bread which had a good flavor. They make their own ice cream & I had a strawberry milkshake which was excellent. Nice bar & beer selections + dining options that you will need to check out on your own. I will return again as soon as possible ( I live 11/2 hous from Merced but it’s worth the drive). GO -Enjoy-Have Fun!

    Went on a date with my boyfriend and we have both never been to the Mainzer. We were incredibly surprised with the atmosphere and the decor. It really is a wonderful place to be in. There wasn’t too much wait or noise when we were there. Food was great and the service was amazing. Our waitress was very sweet and always checked on us. We will be coming back for more date nights!

    Food was good, nothing great. They put crema on a meal that had requested no crema, they took the plate and replaced it promptly but obvious it wasn’t new food because the shrimp still had crema smeared on it but the rest didn’t… pour your own beer is fun and good selection… waitress was great but had too many tables to wait on, we’d have to track her down… but wasn’t her fault.

    Our service from JoAnna at the bar was fantastic. We booked upstairs on OpenTable but it was "closed" so the hostess did not honor our reservation. We were visiting The Mainzer for the first time and would have liked to have been offered the theater by the hostess.

    My partner and I had a lovely dinner and drinks Saturday night! We started with the short rib nachos, a margarita and the cucumber strawberry Collins! We then had a bbq burger and the spicy fried chicken sandwich. All delicious!! We finished my splitting the Kettlecorn Old Fashion, I was curious but it was delicious as well! I highly recommend this spot for happy hour or dinner!
