Incredible dining room experience. Sampled some top shelf select bourbons made into delicious old fashioneds. I had the filet mignon with bernaise and chilled crab legs with mustard sauce - all very good. Surprised the side dishes were so good-Mac and cheese was not garlicky as most other restaurants do. It was somehow light, not heavy, actually very good. Also... More

High end place with beautiful decor. Service excellent (waiter Michael). Food almost excellent BUT two of us had half dozen (supposed) blue points to start although these were the smallest oysters I have even been served and @ $4 per oyster it felt like a ripoff. A good kitchen staff would send word back to the table that their oysters... More

I really enjoyed my steak. Cooked to perfection! The cream corn is really good as is the macaroni and cheese. Nothing is over seasoned! I have eaten in some of the other restaurants in the area this week and I enjoyed this one the best. Nice atmosphere and extremely good service! Very friendly staff. Hats off to the manager!

This was an excellent dinner! Service was outstanding (thanks John!). He was knowledgeable, sincere and provided great advice on choices. Had a good sense of humor and timing--always there when needed but absent when we were meeting. The steaks (a ribeye and two fillets) were done to perfection. The sides were also fantastic--macaroni & cheese, potato and a vegetable--were also... More

This place oozes with refined and stylish decor, comfortable seating, friendly and professional staff, and serves excellent food. Food presentation was superb on calamari. Steak was good. Bourbon cake is OUT OF THIS WORLD GOOD! That is IF you like bourbon. My husband had Cream Bruilee, but once he tried my Bourbon Cake he forgot all about his dessert. We... More

We rang in the New Year at Eddie Merlot's. It was our first visit here. Our appetizers, salads, steaks, and salmon were delicious, but what really stood out was the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. Our server, Jacob, went above and beyond to ensure we had an enjoyable dinner. The Maitre D also visited us and was very friendly... More

Blame in on whatever you will, the holiday, staffing or management, the service and meal was a disaster. We were seated promptly and we were of to a great start enjoying an appetizer of oysters on the half shell. We then ordered our dinner and the the problems began. Half of my order arrive but the French Onion soup did... More

Yes BUT there are a few things to look out for. Be prepared for subtle up-selling from your server. In explaining the menu, mouthwatering combinations were often suggested, but the additional cost of adding these seafood options was not mentioned. Although most of the seafood dishes and all of the "Chef's Creations" on the menu are accompanied by complimenting vegetables,... More

First time here and we will be back! We sat at the bar and had some great cocktails before being seated. A band was playing. We had a table of 8. We ordered some appetizers. All were great! We had the ahi tuna wontons, delicious. Filet potstickers, yum. And truffle fries, not usually a fan of truffle but these were... More

The meal was superb. Dale, our server, was very professional. The appetizer, the wine and the meal was first rate. The young man who assisted Dale was also top notch. Unfortunately I cannot remember his name. This restaurant is pricey but well worth it. From hostess to servers, this restaurant excels. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Thank BudNLily
