It was great to be able to sit at the bar again. The entire team practiced the COVID-19 sanitation guidelines during our entire visit. It was great to visit with Nicole,Nikki and the rest of the Burr Ridge team.

Same great food and excellent service, plus a few great meal deals: entree and salad for $37. And it was great that we didn't have to juggle through a lot of people to get a seat at the bar. We had a reservation for the bar, and were socially distant at least 12 feet from the couples on either side.

This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant... never disappoints!

The outdoor space under the tent was excellent. The overall service was very slow.. perhaps they were understaffed on a Saturday night? I ordered my filet medium rare but it came medium+ . The manager did send it back but by the time my food finally came every one was finished and I ate alone. The meal was removed from the bill but overall it was a poor experience - especially for a place that features steak!

We had reservations for outside which was a very nice, very sturdy tent, complete with strings of lights and ceiling fans.
However it did storm while we were having dinner.
The service up until our entree arrived was good, however when the entree arrived they did not bring the pepper grinder and of course there is no salt/pepper on the table! My biggest gripe with restaurants these days. They forgot one of our sides which was eventually delivered, the requested salt/pepper never arrived....
Food was okay, my crab/corn chowder was very good. Tuna poke good but I've had better. My husband's filet del mar ok but he would have liked some fresh ground pepper that never was available.

Very nice atmosphere outside with soft music and nicely spaced tables. The crab soup was our favorite and we all all had the New Orleans Style grill. The filet was just the right size and very clean meat. Service was very good too. We frequently dine here because of the quality of the food and service.

Another wonderful dining experience! Beautiful night under the tent. Our steaks were cooked to perfection! Chopped salad is a delicious alternative to the Waldorf salad. Our server, Ray, as usual is attentive and goes above a beyond to spoil us. Kevin, always the gracious Manager, makes us feel like family! Love EM and the fantastic staff!

It was our 50 th wedding anniversary and due to Covid all our plans fell through. Our experience and delicious food at Eddie Merlot’s made our day very special! We really enjoyed our outdoor experience and hope they continue this even after dining in is allowed again! We have dined there before and will certainly continue to do so.

Considering the restaurant is a big outdoor tent in a parking lot and all the servers are wearing masks (very disquieting, I’m personally never accepting that as some “new normal,” that’s just me), they did a great job of creating a really positive experience. My wife and I were there for our wedding anniversary and it was a gorgeous night out and their staff were all happy and positive. We look forward to going back indoors and a return to normalcy but I give these guys a ton of credit for how they are pulling this off. And the food was excellent, all of it. Highly recommend.

Simply FANTASTIC! they had a large tent with real table and chairs spaced for distancing. Our waiter was superb. Always attentive and checking in on us without being intrusive. And the food....well, the steak was cooked perfectly and the sides were tasty. We were her longer than we should have due to the current climate, but they made our hours seem like minutes. Would definitely return without hesitation.
