We were delighted to have Kevin as our server on Thursday ! He has an enjoyable sense of humor! We started with the Crab and Avocado Salad and for entrees we enjoyed the Bison Filet Mignon and the Triple Prime Meatloaf. Our meals were excellent!

We had a great time. Our waiter Dale was outstanding. This is the first time we have been back since they reupholstered the chairs in the main dining room. So much better since it is now clean and not threadbare. Love their email specials.

Strip steak was just OK, onion soup was just ok, bone in filet was very good. The salad was very good but I have had better steaks at Gibsons.

Scott was our server and he was excellent, as always! Dan ‘s brother joined us and he enjoys a great bottle of wine and Scott helped him with his selection, since this is another of Scott’s strengths! We started out with the Sweet and Spicy Shrimp! Great choice! For our entrees we chose the Filet Del Mar, Crab Legs and the Blackened Sea Scallops. For a dessert we enjoyed the Creme Brûlée and a dish of Vanilla Ice Cream! Everything was excellent, as always!

We were very disappointed with this place. The restaurant is beautiful but everything else was pretty bad. Poor menu descriptions, food didn’t add up to what we ordered. Service was very off! Drinks took forever to get to us and once my $25 glass of wine arrived they used a mechanism to poor it that made a huge mess on the table and left my glass all sticky and messy. The bathrooms were a mess, French fries were reheated, steak was over done and tasted reheated as well. Will not be back.

I love the ambiance, the decor, and the gentility of Eddie Merlot's dining room. The wait staff especially, Jorge, is top-notch. My husband and I were treated with genuine respect. Jorge made sure our dining experience was memorable. Our salad, soup, entree and dessert were excellent. We were even treated to a complimentary glass of champagne in honor of our anniversary. It's a lovely venue for a special occasion or anytime you are looking for a very relaxed evening.

Food is always great...however second year in a row celebrating my birthday where we experienced a large amount of coffee grounds in our coffee. Last year it was handled graciously and we were not charged for our coffee or dessert. This year no offer to comp the coffee and found out the dessert was free anyway due to birthday celebration. Other steak houses have great food so not sure we will hurry back in light of the way things were handled.

Maybe it’s the fact that I’m comparing this restaurant to the likes of RPM, Perry’s Steakhouse, Chicago Cut, however to my dismay, it was never even close to the steakhouses I mentioned.It lacked flare, taste and presentation. I may hate to say this, but I can almost bet our food was precooked and warmed up when they served it (aawww). It was a Saturday evening and I think about nine tables were being waited on. Sorry Merlo, you may consider a new chef or manager.
