Always our best experience on the big island. One of the best restaurants in the world!
Saturday brunch with visiting family. Very enjoyable for all. A must have is the chocolate molten purse for dessert. Delicious!
Server was excellent. Been there for 5 years. Recommended great dishes and drinks. Best meal we had on our entire trip.
Amazing dinner, worth the drive from anywhere on the island, excellent service, food and value
A bit of a drive from Kona or Hilo, but worth it. The service was outstanding. Our staff person was helpful, informative, and friendly. The food was better than expected, and the ambience was lovely. Would go again.
Another wonderful meal at Merriman's in Waimea. The fish of the day is always special!
Everything was fantastic, however, our waitress was phenomenal! Loved the food and dining experience.
Consistently great recipes, food, & service!
We still talked about Merriman’s 3 years after our first visit. This trip we made sure to enjoy it twice! Great service. Flawless food. I’d highly recommend to anyone and everyone. The Kona Kampachi and the Ahi...wow.
A wonderful brunch!! Great food, service and setting, worth the drive !!!
Merriman’s is one of our favorite restaurants ... we return every time we return to the Big Island!
The staff/service, delicious food and ambiance are superb!
Absolutely outstanding. Great service (thanks, Natalee!), a charming, minimalistic setting and unbelieveable food. Try the macnut crusted kampachi and the lilikoi mousse -- fantastic!
Fabulous meal, delightful atmosphere, a little spendy.
We enjoyed a fabulous evening with our family of 4 and enjoyed every second. The kids menu was full of great choices as was the adult menu. The service was top notch from the second we walked in to our server. Easily our favorite meal on the big island.
We had our wedding dinner here. Food was outstanding. Service was excellent. They even gave us a congratulations dessert. 11/10. Would recommend.
This would have been a just ok meal, if it were half the price. My food was good, although the presentation needed work - too much sauce on each dish, smothering the flavor of the seafood. My girlfriend had the vegetarian enchiladas, which were terrible. I was reminded of a microwaveable frozen dinner. And the two wines by the glass we had were bad, we didn’t even finish them. I wouldn’t go back or recommend this place.
Unbelievable meal. Top to bottom, food, ambiance, service. All amazing. A special experience.
It was our first time and loved it. We want to try each item on the menu. It will take us a few time!
From the moment we walked in the front doors, the service was amazing. Now we know why so many people recommended this place to us. The food, desserts and drinks were so great that we cant wait to go back on our next trip.
Fresh, delicious food! Creative options and great service.
Delicious, great service and good Covid protocols!
Food and drinks were overpriced for what we received. Nothing really memorable or creative. Ambiance and service good.
First time for brunch! Planning on doing this more! Service was great, food, as with dinners was very well presented and delicious!
Service was top-notch, from the doorway and all the way back out. Food was awesome, with our favorite tomato-fennel bisque. The avocado toast could use some rethinking on the bread (or maybe needed more time to toast more).
Will be back as usual,
It was so great to see the flagship Merrimans restaurant. From the decor to the food to the service everything was enjoyable and authentic. Our meal was delicious from start to finish. Highly recommend.
Alway da best. No big island trip is complete without dinner at Merriman
Great food and ambiance despite Covid restrictions.
The lamb and macadamia crusted fish were amazing! Cocktails were great as well!
It was great to be able to eat indoors! So rare since Covid started. Fox was ok. Still pretty pricey. It was nice with the Covid seating. Less people made for faster better service and quieter surroundings. Very limited menu.
Went to dinner after our sunset horseback ride at Paniolo Stables Adventures. Our dinner was so good and we enjoyed the overall experience. We had the amazing ceviche for an app, then we each had a 1
1/2 pound lobster that was melt in your mouth yummy! Such a great meal after our fun horse experience
The hostess Katherine is outstanding and so personable. The use of local ingredients and how the flavors are pulled together is one of the best we’ve experienced on the island
Excellent food and service, as always. Recommend local tomato and arugula salad and that night’s special- mahi mahi and shrimp.
Our dining experience was phenomenal. The service was superb, the staff was so friendly, social & professional. The ambiance was exquisite. The food, presentation & taste was excellent. They were flexible and charactered to our gluten & diary free diet. My husband & I absolutely loved the entire experience.
Once again an amazing meal.. Thursday night special was prime rib.. perfectly cooked steak and great wine...
Server was not the best, but she tried.
Consistently excellent. Wonderful flavors, impeccable service, relaxing meal
Brunch is an opportunity to enjoy different creations from the Merrimack kitchen. Their benedict was excellent and was customized to my liking. We will be returning for my birthday dinner
Great lunch place. Dinner menu is less attractive and too expensive
As always, memorable meal, perfect service - can highly recommend the Kahua Ranch Lamb Ragu with house-made pappardelle pasta, Hamakua mushrooms, and smoked pecorino cheese and always the day boat special
