Came here for Valentine's day dinner! Was not disappointed at all! Meat was perfectly seasoned and cooked to order. Recommend this to those in the area on I70, exit 184. Truck parking!! Good variety on the menu as well.

The breakfast steak is the best item in the menu. The chicken cordon bleu is not made from scratch unfortunately.. Perhaps Meridy could entertain the idea of making them from scratch. The salad bar is the best salad bar I've ever seen!!! It's amazing with made from scratch pasta salads, deserts etc. They offer a great breakfast buffet only during... More

Should you be traveling through Kansas, visiting the area or if you live within driving distance of Russell, KS, you may wish to consider allowing time to stop at Meridy's for a BIG, juicy, grilled steak! We arrived about 6:00pm, sat in the bar area so we could watch TV football, on a Saturday night just prior to the arrival... More

But I'm doing long stretches of travel on I-70 and just picked a location to sleep before another day of a long, multi-day drive. I got to my hotel room and googled restaurants in Russell, KS.

It's really what to be expected from a interstate small restaurant. Their buffet was mainly entree with few side dishes. I was told there were beef tips however it was like a pot roast already in some form of gravy. Make sure you tell the waiter/waitress how you want your burger or it will come out medium to rare. The... More

The steak this time was not as flavorful, but still better than average. Short staffed the night we were there and bar maid and waitress seemed upset. Will still return, even though atmosphere was less than pleasurable that evening.

When we first arrived it took a minute to get seated and than we were left at the table with a toddler instead of asked about a high chair. We went and found one ourselves and the waitress was almost snarky that we put an extra chair in the way. It took almost 30 minutes to serve our food to... More
