Lovely , friendly staff. Delicious pizza at an even tastier price. Great date night!
Food. Limited menu options, but the quality was quite reasonable. The macaroni and cheese fries were okay but were missing something. Maybe some light cracked pepper, a bit of garlic, I don't know. They were decent but maybe a tiny bit bland. The vibe was pleasant, a mixed crowd but average age of maybe 30. There were couples, groups of friends and families with children. A pleasant place to dine, but be mindful of the menu before going and ensure it has what you will want. If you go expecting many options to choose from but have particular tastes, this may not be the place for you. Overall, worth visiting. I would return.
Highly recommend the all you can eat ribs. They just fell off the bone and the sauce was delicious
Everything was great
Only bit of feedback
We had 10 guests 1 in wheelchair was put in tight area
But hey the food and drinks made up
Made a booking only to be told there was none of the food we wanted to order due to the number of walk ins off the street. The toilets are poorly maintained with no toilet paper.
Always great value at merchant lane. A diverse menu that caters for my gluten free children also!
Wasn't explained in booking that turn over for table was 1 hour. So lined up to order which took 30minutes and then food came 20 minutes later and then shortly after food arrived waitress came to tell us we need to be out in 5 minutes. Unable to finish meal
A bit disappointed as a regular customer of merchant lane. Parma night prices increased. Fair enough but card table menu still at $4.90. Get to register and all parmas $6.90. False advertising and a bit unfair
The service was fine, I was a tiny bit disappointed with the food. We went there for the mexican night, and I got given the wrong flavour taco, but I didnt say anything so thats fine. The tacos were a bit dry - i was expecting some sort of sour cream or cheese. The nachos were ok, but thought they were a tower, not just a small box. Also they were a bit dry too. So im rating my review on the food not the restaurant, as everything else was great and still happy with the value for money! keep it up as your the only place i can think of that serves budget friendly food without being gross/tacky!
Sunday roast was outstanding. Steak night ok but not fantastic
Great food, friendly staff and spacious venue.
Been coming here for the parma since it opened. Great value - and the parma is pretty good as well.
Merchants a great place and offers great value for money but lately their parmas are a bit hit and miss on flavour and quality. The chips on the side are really unevenly plated. But I will go again.
both times I have been there the food was great and the staff are the best, the food is cheap but ample portions and top notch, I brought 2 friends with us last time and the are fussy people, they said its the best food they have tasted in quite some time, one of the best places on the peninsula for price, service and quality, try it you wont be disappointed
The atmosphere is good and the food is delicious. Highly Recommended
Went on pizzas and sides night; the food was generous and tasty, the price was excellent. Excellent service as well, love the venue as well, cosy and intimate, but our group of 8 were comfortable.
Only minor issue was we got a few plates of sides and pizzas to share amongst us all, and found the table was a little small for all the food we ordered.
It wasn't that big of an issue though; everything else was just excellent. Would definitely go back, keen to try another night for different foods.
Fantastic venue and great good. Will definitely be back soon.
Came here with a friend.
Service was good and great value for money!!
Have been here many times!!😊
Food was yummy, no gluten free option for pizza night so had to have gluten. From ordering to receiving last item took 55 minutes. Alcohol is very expensive to compensate for cheap meals.
Always great on a Wednesday night. We tend to book in early :)
Food was good but disappointing to wait well over 1 1/4 hours for food to be bought to table
The menu and staff were great but the food was cold when it arrived and half of the people I was with didn’t get there food untill 2 hours after eating it. We asked where our 2 tacos were that we were still waiting for when the cake had come out. We asked 4 times and by the 5th time we asked for a refund, the refund came with the tacos.
The waiters were nice about it all and the bartender is an awesome guy.
Great place for good value food in a area like Mornington were going out can be expensive.
We had one vegan on the table and nothing was too much to make her a yummy dinner that didn't make her feel out of place.
The only downside is no straws - I get the save the planet thing -But an alternative would of been helpful. Paper?? Metal? Just might have bough another drink if it didn't take me so long to drink the first. (Being very picky so just personal feedback)
We ordered 3 of the 250gm porterhouse steaks. 1 medium and 2 medium rare.
They all came out crucified on the outside, and raw on the inside.
We sent them back.
2nd round was just as crucified outside. And about half the steak (the thinner pieces) rare-medium rare. The rest was barely room temperature.
Very poor cooking for a "speciality night"
The "spicy wings" were about as spicy as salt
Great price to go out rather than pay the same for a Maccas. Lass than $60 for dinner & drinks for 4 adults, pitched well for midweek dining.
A really cheap and easy tea! Yummy Parma for $4.90!!! Will be doing this as often as we can!
The place was nice and the staff were very friendly, even after getting our order wrong. It was very slow though, there needed to be extra bar staff just for serving drinks. Nice though.
Awesome as always. Good food, great value and awesome staff.
Great daily deals, almost never have to cook at home anymore.
Birthday get together
Cannot beat $3 pizzas!! they were sensational! and great sides to choose from too!
Great value, it’s nice to be able to take the family out get good food and it doesn’t break the bank. We are making this a regular now.
I booked few weeks before for a large table of 18 but moved further in the resaurant due to cold wind through front door
Staff were great and accommodating to requests
The very meaty burger however was unedible according to my teenage son as nothing but thick meat patties in a bun unfortunately
Everything was pretty good as usual ..
$4;90 Parma night. Ordering food was a long line at bar. Barman not only took food orders but also had to serve drinks. Very busy. He remained pleasant and friendly and very apologetic.
He had to run to back twice in 10 minutes as run out of bottled wines suggesting poor forplanning.
Meals were lovely , fresh and hot.
Noisy but not overbearing.
Great for a quick bite and friend catch up.
Stopped in on a recommendation from work colleague and found it a great environment for a quick family meal that was delicious and value for money. Great service and atmosphere
Great Food Great Staff incredible value! Something for everyone every taste!
Thoroughly enjoyed the Saturday night pizza deals! The quality was outstanding for the very low price. Would come back again!
Bar service was extremely slow. Probably should have both bars open on such a busy night.
Excellent as always.
Great food, service and price.
Great establishment and amazing value , very popular.
