    Towards the end of the night, the service really tapered off. Water was not being poured and no one was around. Also, I'd like to see some new items added to a somewhat limited and all to familiar menu.

    First time visit to Merriman’s. FRESH FISH & SHRIMP & CHIPS-The shrimp is a generous portion and the Malt Vinegar Aioli is a must dip, although i’d love a jar of that sauce. TAKO & COUNTRY BREAD-this is so delicious. I regret not ordering an additional order. Coming back just for this. OYSTERS ON THE HALF SHELL   Very fresh and goes down so cleanly. BREAD PUDDING+Housemade Vanilla Ice Cream-Hit the sweet spot. I need a whole sheet pan of this. I usually hate anything with caramel, but it’s an afterthought to the star that is the actual bread pudding. Not too sweet. Perfectly baked. Chico and runner Raul/Paul?-you guys are rockstars. Great food, nice ambiance, wonderful experience and I’ll definitely be back!

    Appetizers shine with the tako escargot, green beans, and clams. Be aware of kitchen surcharge of about 4% on top of the 20% gratuity they automatically charge for large parties.

The food was absolutely delicious and it made me proud to be able to share amazing Hawaii Regional Cuisine with our friends from Canada. You all made me proud of Hawaii and you all shined with your aloha spirit. Mahalo!

    Seemed like a lot of the wait staff were new so didn’t really mind if they forgot to get my drink or ask certain things like an experienced wait staff would. I would say that the food was really good. Got the Mauka chef special which was a black pepper tenderloin which was cooked on refectory medium rare with some really good green beans. Also tried some of the Mac crusted fish and it was really good too. For dessert we tried the bread pudding which was divine! Paired with their house made vanilla ice cream just delicious! Overall service was okay, food was great, and it was a little loud from the live music but okay. Would go again for the food!

    Our server was the best we have ever had. All others who brought dishes or poured water were outstanding too. The birthday dessert was unexpected and we are most grateful. A warm welcome. Wondering why we checked in first and yet another couple was seated before us. Lively music - good singer, good voice, good selections. Miss the table side poke and Maui onion soup. Didn't want to mention this or the seating order because we received a slightly rude remark from the person who reads these reviews. We gave up checking instagram because we could never tell when Maui onion soup would be on the menu. We also make plans way in advance.

    Food was excellent- tenderloin was the most tender in my memory, and the green beans were the best I have ever had, and that took me by surprise! LOL All the food just tasted better than I expected. The service was fine overall, but our server was not particularly personable and did not make our experience above average, almost a little below average, but the food was good. Seems a little pricey, as about $300 for Thanksgiving lunch for two.
