With an expansive wine list and food to match - Eddie Merlot's is a great place for a girlfriends night out or date night. Make a reservation because the wait can be long! They also have a great little gift shop you can bring wine accessories home! A fun and unique experience!

Nice atmosphere, professional and courteous staff. All of the appetizers were amazing. Hard to recommend one as they were all awesome. I absolutely loved the BBQ Shrimp and Garlic Shrimp. I had the steak salad which was fantastic as well. I totally recommend this place for any occasion.

Having just returned from Australia and reviewing a steak restaurant with a similar menu this one falls short on a couple of counts. The restaurant was half empty on a Friday night. The restaurant was cold and many people wore outside jackets If the Wagyu is truly Australian range fed the way Wagyu is supposed to be, I am scepical.... More

The place is amazing, the atmosphere as well as the food. Especially the steaks. THESE STEAKS!!! They are amazing! The Wagyu Bone-in New York Strip and the Dry Aged Prime Tomahawk Ribeye are out of this world! My wife loves the Elysian Fields Lamb, which are super tender and flavorful as well. We always start with Eddie’s Smokin’ Shrimp Cocktail... More

My husband and I always have a good experience. We normally sit at the bar and he orders the escargot (when in season) and I order an appetizer. Our food is always very very good and the food runner is absolutely wonderful. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is sometimes the bar servers get chatty with... More

This is the best burger I have had. From the peppadew peppers, the shaved New York strip, the grilled onions, & the gruyere cheese, this all melds & gives the best taste sensation for a burger. Juicy!

Served by an exceptional host (i think he was called Andras) offering all sorts of cuisine tips and advice. Very pleasant, perfect setting and surroundings/atmosphere. The food and drink was amazing! Had the bison filet and new york strip - both done to perfection and the drinks were never left to empty as we were kept topped up! Chocolate cake... More

What a relaxing place for dinner, the private rooms are wonderful and comfortable with big club chairs to sit back in and take it easy. We started dinner with an order of the pot stickers and calamari. I would probably take a pass next time on the calamari, found it to be a little over chewy but the pot stickers... More

Always have great food and have been there dozens of times. Fish, steak, and great desserts. Make reservations before you go to be sure you will be able to go in if you go for lunch. Yum!!

Their steaks are great. Sometimes they can have difficulty with the temp, but I keep coming back. The hash browns are to die for.
