Dudes, I didn't visit this place in 2015 and honestly have no idea whether or not it had changed since then but let me tell you. Ever since I had the Caesar Salad at this restaurant in 2012, every salad of that kind has lost when compared to this one. Damn, I still remember the taste. Pure awesomeness. Even though... More

Had dinner at the Merrywell during my visit to Melbourne and was extremely impressed. The meal was very tasty and satisfying. We also enjoyed the alcoholic milkshakes that we ordered. Service was quick and very good. Would highly recommend visiting here for a meal.

Have been wanting to call in for a meal every time we have been up in Melbourne and finally got our chance. I had the Rib eye sandwich. Was a bit disappointed as there was so much sauce in the slaw and the BBQ sauce was a lot more spicy then expected. I was unable to pick it up and... More

First time at any Merrywell. It's exactly the kinda food I like if I'm thinking Americano Fayre. The food was good and chips/fries tasty. I think however it's a bit overpriced for what you get - and I'm not averse to paying for good food. Im also not averse to paying for good service. The young waitress who took our... More

Burgers look awesome on the menu but come out much smaller than you might have expected. Sides like onion rings are also quite stingy in their serving. Compared to Perth food quality and serving size, the Melbourne iteration of Merrywells is a distant second.

We popped in for dinner mid-week, the staff were welcoming and attentive - we settled for burgers and american style milkshakes - very filling! This is not meant to be high end dining, but it does provide freshly cooked, tasty meals

Is this supposed to be an American burger joint? If so, you have missed the brief. The place didn't have a great ambience and the food wasn't exactly a talking point. Soggy burger buns, burnt meat and lack lustre salad made it a bad time and seeing that we paid around $60 for a meal, I was close to asking... More

$52 for 2 burgers side of chips and 2 milkshakes. Overpriced. Chips cane in a cardboard box on plate. Pineapple was a few pieces. One of the worst burgers ever. Ordering system slow. Form a queue and other customers and staff pushing in and past. $7.50 I think for milkshake which came in. Glass with at least 4-6inches cream on... More
