I can't say enough about our first experience at Merriment Social. The food, drinks, everything was just amazing!
Our server Carly was so perky and energetic and interacted with us throughout our entire dinner. She really made the entire experience even better! Can't wait to come back and see Carly again!
We've been to Merriment Social a few times and every time has been excellent. The food, service and atmosphere are great.
Great food in a space with lots of circulation and lots of light.
Super fun place with really good drinks. The appetizers we had were amazing and the fried chicken entree was just ok. Overall good time!
Good atmosphere, good food.
Keegan was great! He was on top of it with the large group we had. He even made the birthday special with dessert and a candle. Great food and atmosphere!
The pad Thai is basically buttered noodles, no flavor. Salmon carpaccio was very good. Cocktails are excellent.
The food was nothing special for what you’re paying. Menu was very limited and the drinks were small (albeit boozy). Ambiance was kinda nice but mediocre.
Undortunately the service was terrible. Only 3 tables seated when we went and we waited over an hour for food. Drinks never refreshed. I had been here before once and if was good. This visit was terrible. Would not go back
Overpriced midday menu (seriously, why is an avocado salad $16?! - romaine, avocado, and charred broccoli - $16). Service was incredibly slow and impersonal.
This is my second time here and I am not disappointed! It was a wonderful dinner. We enjoyed every bit of it! We had the Gulf Shrimp Lettuce Wraps, Cauliflower Pad Thai, and Avocado Bowl and there were delicious! I would definitely recommend Merriment Social for small or large gatherings!
Appetizers and entrees we ordered were all excellent. Very happy with the food. Service was pretty poor, however. After we were seated, our waitress didn’t approach our table for 10 minutes. Actually considered getting up and leaving. Every time waitress came to our table, which was seldom and far apart, she was in such a rush, she was at the table for a very short time and rushed off before we could finish talking to her or asking questions. Felt as if we were a bother to her and that she would rather we weren’t there. Also, I would recommend not asking at time of reservation if there is a special occasion, if nobody at the restaurant is going to acknowledge the special occasion while you are there.
Our server Dylan was outstanding and super friendly, he made our first experience there extremely enjoyable! The food was so tasty, drinks were great, we will definitely be back!
Great service! Lobster quesadilla was delish along with the brussel sprouts. Yummy cocktails as well.
Loved brunch here! The natural light coming in felt amazing and we had an attentive server. :) I don’t even like Brussels sprouts but my friends ordered some for the table and they were to die for! Everyone loved their food; we will be back!
I've eaten here probably about 6 times, And it's like a 50/50 split between good experiences and disappointing experiences. This most recent time, our server forgot several items, we had to sit at a table right next to the door (despite having a reservation and there being other 4-tops where our party could have sat), and then when we were ready for the check, our server was nowhere to be found. The food and drinks were great, but consistency in service could be improved.
Love this place. Such a good vibe.
Great time had by the family celebrating 77th birthday. Appropriate social distancing was done.
Excellent food for a Friday during lent. You don't always want a fish fry. The lobster quesadilla and cauliflower pad thai was outstanding.
Great service and food! We will be back.
I saw Merriment on the Food Channel and was expecting so much more. We went on a Sunday afternoon, and they had a special "midday" menu which included 3 entres only. I complained about it, telling the waiter that we had travelled 1-1/2 hours to get there and he talked to the kitchen and they then made more entrees available. Overall, it was a great disappointment. There were no other diners there (though they insisted on reservations with many conditions). I would not go back. It was overall a grave disappointment.
great place for casual brunch service is consistently great! yummy food amazing drinks super trendy vibe. its our go to for breakfast
We had such a great night here. We went because of the night rating on open table.
The food was great, drinks fantastic and the service from Dave was the best! If we’re in Milwaukee again we shall re visit.
excellent burger and fries, good cocktails, and friendly bar tenders! I always enjoy it here!
We went for my roommates birthday. The place had a very unique style which I did like. Service was great. Drinks were great but the food wasn’t too good.
I would give 5 stars if tables/people were more spread out for covid reasons. Other than that, food was amazing, good service too!
A solid go-to restaurant for comfort food and cocktails
Burgers were great! Service was friendly and very nice casual dining with cute string lights and garage like doors that look like the may open during the warmer months. Gives like a cute backyard summer time feeling with the sting lights, easy going vibe. Felt there weren’t a ton of “regular” options for food. Not a ton for a picky eater. Expensive for what it was. Still delicious and will still be back.
Great ambience and COVID safety. We had the Valentines dinner special - Osso Bucco which was outstanding.
Small but interesting menu. I'd like to come back and try several other entrees that I obviously could not get to in one visit. Large room that still was able to hold quite a few diners despite pandemic restrictions. My entree was good but not great. The beer selection was pretty good for a place that does not highlight that. The service was very good - a nice-and-steady amount of attention. Ambience was a little hard to adequately judge due to the pandemic and the brutally cold and snowy weather on the Saturday evening before Valentine's Day. The music over the speakers was to my liking.
David was our waiter and he did an exceptional job. We shared the Avocado Bowl and the Lobster Quesadillas and were very impressed with the freshness.
Went there for bottomless mimosas which was fine. The food was quite disappointing though. Ordered the chilaquiles which were bland and lacking a lot of flavor.
First time at MS with friends and as many during COVID, it had been a while since a night out. Merriment did not disappoint and lived up to all the reviews and recommendations. From well poured drinks to start to decadent dessert finish, each part was well played by MS staff. Appetizers of chick magnets and brussel sprouts were a delicious start. I had heard the merriment burger was amazing and it lived up to reputation. The Swayze Burger melted in your mouth like the clay in Patrick Swayze's hands in the movie Ghost...we finished with PB&J shots and pecan pie.....tremendous finish to a really great night......thx Merriment....I'll see you soon!!!
We like the atmosphere and the sound level at Merriment Social. Awesome burger and French dip sandwiches.
Merriment is always a solid brunch spot. We tried the potstickers for the first time; those were a must-have. Chilaquiles and breakfast sandwich were both fantastic. The bloody with jalapeno vodka was a good upgrade-- spicy without burning your tongue off. Not our first visit, definitely won't be the last!
Great food and wine. Excellent staff. We will be back!
Burgers were great and we loved the Brussels sprouts.
We had a great Sunday brunch here on 10/11/2020! Service & food both excellent.
great food and place
