"We were sort of not prepared for the cost of our meals. Don't get me wrong, everything was GREAT and we will probably return, but not anytime soon.
Our server Johnathon Frost was absolutely fabulous. When we do return, I will definitely ask for him. Thank You for the Anniversary cake, it was delicious and Thank You for a wonderful experience at Eddie Merlot's.
Stay Safe!

"Had been looking forward to dinner here and made reservations days in advance. Was very disappointed to have been seated in the bar area which was crowded and noisy. The remainder of the restaurant was empty. Had to talk rather loudly to be heard. So much for a romantic atmosphere. Food was good but way over priced. Our wait staff was attentive and did a fine job. For a party of two with just one drink the bill was over $200. We won't be in a rush to go back."

"Was exited to try this restaurant but this visit was a big disappointment. The service was fine, very friendly and attentive, but the food....not so good. It was NOT worth it. I have spent much less for far better food many places. We like the atmosphere but we won't be back any time soon."

"My salad was very salty. My steak ,for the price paid, was small(12oz). Very high price(Over $40.00). And was grainy and not cooked as I had requested. This place is supposed to be noted for their steak and seafood. Boy , was I disappointed. The service was also rushed. I had not finished my salad yet and was served my main course , a steak and potato . Then at the end of my stay I waited quite a long time for the waiter to pick up my payment.
I know my option was to tell the waiter I was displeased but I did not want to make my wife uncomfortable. The evening was to be a nice experience. Ha !

"This was our third visit to Eddie Merlot's in a month. The food is fantastic! Our 3 year old is welcomed warmly. We always have great service, present but not rushing anything. Highly recommend this if you want to splurge!"

"We travel a LOT and we LOVE our food. We've been coming to this restaurant for a couple years now and I must say that when it comes to food and service, Eddie Merlot beats all the rest. You simply cannot get better service than this restaurant offers. The food is OUTSTANDING. We've tried MANY items on their menu and NOT ONCE have we disliked something we ordered. In fact, we have downright LOVED everything. The sea bass is to die for, the steaks are some of the best you will find anywhere in the world, the wine list is OUTSTANDING and the desserts are AMAZING. The staff makes you feel like you are the only people in the world they are concerned with right now. We have had fabulous experience after fabulous experience here. We come back often simply because you CANNOT find a better meal or a nicer staff anywhere. I highly recommend Eddie Merlot for your special occasion, your night out with friends or your romantic evening with your loved one. It just can't get any better."

"Three of us selected 3 different (heart-unhealthy) entrees and sides. Each was cooked exactly as requested and each was very tasty and tender. We expected the bison steak to be tough but it wasn't and it was extremely good. Even if you don't like brussel sprouts, give them a try. They serve them perfectly cooked with bacon. Service was good as well. Attentive but not pushy."

"While Valerie is an exceptional server and the meat was sensational, the rest was... not good. The oysters were fishy, the escargot was bland and rubbery and had to be sent back, and the sauté for the pork chops apparently included a cup of salt. While they were cooked to perfection, the pork chops had to be sent back so that the sauce could be rinsed off. A fairly costly meal, so this was a first experience that won't bring us back for a second, unfortunately."
