Excellent service, great food & beverages as well as outdoor dining
Fantastic evening! Not only were the Mail Tai’s the best, but the food was fantastic and service was excellent! We felt Tyson took care of us as if he had only our table even though we know he had a very busy evening. Terrific back up staff too. Water filled, food served timely and just a lovely evening altogether! Our friends who joined us said they had been there for happy hour but never had dinner there before and were totally impressed in every way! Thank you Tyson snd staff!!
Our visit to Merriman’s was the perfect replenisher after the Stadium Swap Meet. Just when I was totally exhausted and depleted…Tyson brought us all the good eats.
From farm to table fresh, to delicious masters and mixtures of spirits, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We had the Maui onion soup, a perfect combination of savory and sweet, large fresh garlic shrimp, the catch of the day, shrimp with the most fragrant salted rosemary fries you’ve ever had!
To top it off, Tyson remixed fresh homemade strawberry & Kona Coffee ice-cream cones just for our picky pallets!
The watermelon mojito and Ale’s were in point too.
Enjoyed the food but disappointed with screaming toddler next to us. It wasn’t a pleasant experience.
They should have been outside. Spoiled the ambiance.
I understand that there were 2 hours limit, but my guest and I felt like going to a Chinese restaurant where they got you in and out as soon as possible. I would prefer making it less rush from a dining experience.
First time This location. Food was great and service was excellent
Amazing bread pudding!!
Fish & shrimp & chips was awesome.
Great wine list. Wagyu burger was great.
Our server was awesome!! We would definitely come again!
Tako escargot, taro hummus delicious!
Excellent service. Relaxing, NOT noisy comfortable outdoor dining!
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! The staff was incredible. We all felt very comfortable because of the local feel🤙🏾 and the food was AMAZING! And the drinks were DELICIOUS!!! We will be back!!!
Food was great, service was even better!!!
Amazing service great food awesome experience.
I would highly recommend this restaurant. The service, drinks and service were all great. There was live music, which I don’t usually enjoy, but enjoyed in this setting. The music was also unique and not your usual.
Server was fantastic - clams were outstanding - fresh fish very good
Merriman's is amazing, Great service, Food and Vibe.
Love the Mai Tai
Over priced-small portions! Service was horrible!
Delicious food and great service. Definitely one of my top favorite restaurants.
Attentive and thoughtful service.
Artistically beautiful dish, filled with flavors that slowed time as we dined. Two hours passed gently with peaceful outdoor dining.
Daniel was great, music was perfect, and the food was delicious.
Absolute an amazing place to dine would highly recommend to those looking for a quality high end dining at a casual environment.
Always great service and good quality food
Service was outstanding and food was delicious. Felt comfortable eating in a restaurant with the new vaccine mandate.
Ate lunch on the outdoor terrace with a friend who doesn’t do lunch. He scarfed down the Caesar salad with fried green tomatoes and shrimp. I couldn’t finish my frisée/beet/goat cheese salad and jalapeño corn chowder after eating two to-die-for biscuits. Plantation iced tea makes it to my top 3 list. Wish I’d had room for dessert. Our server was very attentive. How do they memorize all those details?
My family enjoyed the food and service. Everone was very friendly and welcoming. My husband enjoyed the special birthday dessert. Thank you.
Fresh, delicious meals. Impeccable service and friendly staff.
Daniel our server is awesome! Knew exactly what we wanted and needed. Very attentive. We Celebrated our birthdays and was surprised at the end with a treat.
Merrimans is always a great place for dining lunch or dinner. It’s so reliable and never disappoints. Great food great service and really good drinks.
Everyone is so welcoming that it feels really comfortable.
Merriman’s is reliably pleasant in spite of Covid regulations.
No one told us to move on. We were able to carry on a meaningful conversation with our good friends while enjoying Happy Hour prices on several MaiTais and five delicious pupus.
Always delicious. Loving the taro falafels at the moment! But everything is really good. Had the Caesar salad and French onion soup combo the last time for lunch and it was spot on! Perfect place to socialize and the staff are all excellent and accommodating.
Fantastic service and even better meal! First time visiting Hawaii and by far the best restaurant experience we had
Too noisy, difficult to have a conversation. Music is too loud. The noise just bounces off the walls and ceiling. My husband wears hearing aids and they cut out whenever the noise is too loud. The hearing aids cut out.
Went in for Happy Hour with two friends, we had the best time being served by Chris!! He's an excellent server, super engaging, entertaining, personable, kept the energy up the whole entire time, Food quality, location is prime, I've now made Merriman's one of my favorite HH's and will be coming back for more!
This restaurant have always been a favorite. However, on this visit (lunch) it took quite a while - from the time we sat down and the time we left was about two hours. The wait time between entrees was quite long. Still a favorite, but keep in mind if you need to go back to work, it may be a while.
A restaurant that can offer a wonderful variety of mainland staples and Hawaiian delights. The staff was so kind and attentive- and wonderful at explaining the different dishes and what made them special.
Wow the cast iron chicken was amazing!!! The Mai hi mai hi had wonderful flavors. John our server was attentive and allows checking on us. Live music which is hard to find anymore was the cherry on top! I give this place a 10!
A staple on Oahu!
Efficient while still being welcoming and friendly
Great food! Second time in 3 days i went there on a date with my husband. Everything was delicious, a bit pricey, but well worth it.
Disappointed with Merriman’s. We’ve been there dozens of times & yet there’s no recognition from staff or hostesses. Got there at 5:15 pm & there were multiple tables open. They seated the four just behind the front desk. I asked if we could be seated further back as there were empty tables. She said no & that we would have to wait 10 minutes. We took the table near the front but noticed the other tables were empty for awhile until other guests that walked in were given the tables we would have preferred. The food seems to be going down hill and we may be chalking this place off our prefer list. We have out of town guests often & usually we take them to Merriman’s the first night of their visit w/us.
