The only complaint was the grilled barramundi. I don’t believe it was grilled no grill marks. I believe was steamed as very soggy including the skin and in parts was raw. Yes I could have sent It back but was a special celebration and both me and my sister didn’t want to create a drama on the day
Love dining here! This is our 2nd time here. It has a great vibe and customer service is excellent. The staff are very polite and friendly. It also has ample parking. Will be back again!
My comment is about a minor issue but it is what you state is a salad. The salad appeared in my entrée and my steak. It is not a salad it is lettuce. I did want salad, you know tomato, carrot, cucumber, beetroot etc, not just a lump of horrible frizzy leaves. Sorry, but that term salad is misleading.
The parking is not fun either and I do understand it was a busy day as a public holiday.
Love love love dining at Merricks general store ! Never disappoints .
Great vibe and customer service, will definitely come gain
Had the most wonderful lunch on Friday with my mum! We’re greeted on arrival by a lovely man who let us do a wine taste of a few different local wines. We shared the charcuterie board and cheese board and had a bottle of wine which we had tasted on arrival. All the staff are very friendly and hospitable. Will definitely come back!
Relaxed vibe, efficient friendly service; food choices uncomplicated
Relaxed fine dining, great food and wine with very attentive and friendly service. Sectioned areas which make it appealing to couples and families alike, can drop in for coffee and cake, wine tasting, buying local deli products, light lunch or a full 3 course. Very popular so best to book for dining.
We have had many meals for many occasions at Merricks, and loved it. However, This experience was underwhelming. Service was good, food was ordinary. Steak was chewy, fries were soggy etc etc. We won’t be booking again. Disappointing
Well attentive staff, great food and great atmosphere. The produce store was excellent too.
The food is very disappointing and over priced. However the environment is lovely and beautiful.
My favourite place for everything. It could just be a coffee and cake, pick up a beautiful wine (or six!), a terrific meal at a modest price and fast, friendly wait staff. It's local to me and I never tire of it! My hubby and I got married here and our guests raved, and still do!
Fantastic and very personal place to wine and dine with family and friends.
Always pleased with our meals here, try the charcuterie board. Delicious!
Great friendly and relaxed service, and the food was excellent.
Birthday for my daughters
Great place so glad we went there! Slices and deserts TD4
Delicious food, excellent service & great views. Overall outstanding dining experience. I visit every year when I'm in the area on holidays and will definitely be coming back.
Other than the fabulous food , decor and staff , I was able to book even for 4 people !!!!!
Fabulous waitress , we have already contacted the venue to express our thanks to the manager and requested acknowledgement go to the staff member for making our daughters birthday celebration a fun and lovely experience.
Dining with an overseas guest. They loved it! Food great, staff attentive, friendly and genuinely nice as usual. Wine tasted, visited ‘The Traders’, ate, drank and generally enjoyed it all.
Great service and fantastic outdoor area and vibe.
We enjoyed our lunch at Merricks on New Year’s Eve and were very glad that we had booked in advance!
Due to congested traffic, we were 30 minutes late. Our reserved table had been given away, but part of another setting was given to us. Attention by staff was courteous, food was enjoyable and even though it was a very hot day, the room was comfortable. We will return.
As usual the food and teh services was outstanding. We had our usual table and we were made to feel right at home. Already made another booking
Great food and wine with extremely helpful, friendly and courteous staff. Duck pate entree was especially good, and excellent local wines to suit. We'll definitely be back for more!
Good food but not quite as good as usual. Put that down to the very busy bistro. Service always friendly but very noisey today.
The door to outside is a real problem. Every time someone goes out or comes in without holding the handle there is a loud bang and gust of air which is extremely annoying if you are seated near that door.
We had a lovely lunch- delicious food, lovely and attentive staff all in beautiful surrounds.
Just a wonderfully friendly place with good food and great Staff. We have a truly great day
We have been a few times to merricks...and our experience has always been great.
This time it was very disappointing.
The deep frier wasn't working so the kids couldn't have fish n chips which wasn't so bad, but the alternatives weren't appealing.
All of our meals lacked the usual flavour and deliciousness that we've come to expect from merricks.
To top it all off it was expensive and we felt we'd wasted our money.
Not sure we'll return in a hurry.
Unfortunately my choice fish of the day was dry overcooked and tasteless. Very disappointing. Other people at our table were of the same opinion.
A local gem. The service is like nowhere else and the food and wine are stunning. We love it.
Thank you for such a positive end to our Riding for the Disabled year. Tim looked after us perfectly and the side verandah room was a wonderful venue for us to celebrate with hardworking coaches and volunteers. Our meal was tasty, well presented and promptly served.
Really disappointed with menu selection, desserts and service
We were seated in the rear dining room, after confirming our booking the day before we had to wait to be seated. 3 out of the party of 6 could not have an alcoholic drink as the champagne classed as the driest, was undrinkable and the other was a Moscato drinker, and there was none. The desserts that were offered other than the cakes was a limited variety also.
Overall it was disappointing on the day for our group who like to try new places.
Service was impeccable and food delicious. A very pleasant and relaxing experience. Excellent wine list and we enjoyed the gallery and friendly wine tasting after our lunch. Highly recommend.
A fun place to dine, but new menu is disappointing. I'll return when the menu changes...
