    Brunch tacos were disappointing - really disappointing. Breakfast burrito was enjoyed as was the avocado toast. Out of most of baked goods. which seemed odd at noon, father's day brunch.

    We went here for an early Father’s Day dinner as a family. We really enjoyed the fun cocktail options and the open airy setting. The garage doors were up so it almost has an outdoor vibe which we loved. The Brussel sprouts are a family favorite.

    Our server was charming, the food was tasty, and the late 70s-early 80s new wave playlist was a hoot.

    Young, joyful crowd. Noise level very high. Food served quickly and efficiently. Very helpful servers. Could have used a larger portion of avadado toast and a smaller portion of bacon.

    The food was extremely over price for what you received. If we’re good food it would’ve been fine but honestly I’ve had better burgers from Burger King & McDonald’s. Burger was $20 bucks and didn’t come with chips or fries. Just a school lunch burger on a metal tray. There was more bun than burger. Fries were and extra $6 bucks and they were anything special.

    The service was really good and patient with us as we had a group of 6 and arrived 15 min apart. Even though they were busy with a few other large parties, they were on top of our beverage service. the food was delicious and very filling, Pot stickers and apple pie donuts were amazing!

    We like the food but found a few items too sweet. In particular the creamed corn side and Brussel sprouts It was almost like they had a pie crust crumble topping. If we ordered them again we would request them without it. Service was great though!

    Looks like a converted garage. Food was ok but pricey. Cheese curds were excellent. Not the traditional cheese curd. Drink prices were fair.

    I took my girlfriend and her brother to Merriment for their first time and they loved it. I enjoyed seeing it through their eyes and wanted to shout out Rob and Ollie who both really impressed us with their service! Killer music, service, vibes, beer list. Can’t wait to come back and try everything else on the menu. But probably still get the burger to go too because YUM.
