We were there for a little birthday celebration. Just us girls. The waiter was very accommodating and did a great job with all of our special requests. The drinks were well made and the food was delicious. Perfect for the first day of daylight savings time.

Great service - had a lot of fun with our waiter who made us feel comfortable and at home and made sure we enjoyed our first time at Merriment. The Fried chicken was very good, Brussels sprouts were good but not quite worth the price. Their house gin and tonic recipe was very refreshing.

Placed us in back room all by ourselves. Food was taken away too quickly and not up to standards. I would like a gift card to be able to redo our experience

I had the fried chicken and biscuits. Possibly, the best fried chicken and biscuit place I’ve ever had. Amazing!

My legs caught a breeze the whole time. It's very expensive food, they should be able to add a heater or two. 🤔
Food was amazing, if you haven't been here you need to check this place out. don't sit in front if you have a choice.

We have been here 4 times. The first time we liked our potstickers, burger, and shake. The second time we came for brunch, we didn't like the bloodys, the chicken and waffles were over priced. The 3rd time we ordered a burger and we felt it wasn't as good as the first time and very pricey. This last time we came for brunch shared the monkey bread, it was hard. I can make better at home with a can of biscuits. The only thing we liked was the whiskey peanut butter drink, delicious!! We will not be back, to many other restaurants in the city that do it right for the money.

Merriment social is one of the best restaurants in Milwaukee. Their chefs are so talented, food is incredible, trust me your stomach will be happy. The staff is friendly and on top of it. Not to mention they have a fantastic beer and cocktail menu! Always a great time at Merriment!

Ordered bottomless for brunch, they neglected to tell us that last call was at 12:30pm because they needed to close for a private event. Our reservation was for 11:30am. We would have never ordered bottomless if we were going to be asked to leave after 3 mimosas. It was a waste. Not sure that I’ll be back.

Delicious and a fun place to dine. It was a busy night, but we were seated on the second floor which helped keep the noise level a bit lower. Fried chicken is amazing!

Clever menu - I got the smoked meats every day (lol) and it was delicious but I do not recommend this place if you’re on a diet!! Also it’s a refurbished warehouse I think? Unique and well decorated! This would be a fun place to come with a big group of friends !

Awesome atmosphere and food was amazing. One of the owners stopped at our table and spoke with us, sharing the history of the building and area. Chicken and waffles are my new fave!

Food was inconsistent with menu. Brussels sprouts were delicious, but there was no creme fraise as stated on menu. 8 piece fried chicken bucket was 2 legs and 6 chicken tenders-very disappointing. Sides were small and luke warm. Service was also inconsistent.

I picked this place because it had the most creative menu for brunch. But while the choices were unusual, the prices were pretty high for what you got. The bratwurst potstickers were terrific, but there were only 4 and cost $8! Same on most of the dishes. The Mexican dish was mostly chips and the Montreal smoked meat only had maybe a couple ounces of meat and lots of potatoes. And most of the beer choices were IPA and stouts with them being out of the only lager. Don't know if I'd go again.

Such a cool space, loved the vibe and ambiance. Our server was great, and the cook had made an extra appetizer so she gave it to us for free! The menu was great, varied with solid options. Our cocktails were good, just overall we loved it!

We made the best of our time there, but I wish our waitress was a bit friendlier. It felt like we were an inconvenience and we were not offered or informed on better drink deals. Our waitress closed our tab without asking if we needed or wanted something else beforehand. She seemed like she was somewhere else and not fully there. It wasn't the worst, but certainly not the best experience.
