For the business traveler, dinner at the bar is an excellent choice. Great cocktails and you can also get a burger off the bar menu for a relaxing meal. Great setting and location.

I will be traveling to Louisville on Tuesday, March 3rd and had considered having dinner here by myself as the rest of my group will not arrive until Wednesday. Is there seating for 1 (or two). I would also like to know what the preferred attire is so I will know what to pack. Many thanks!

Eddie Merlot’s features USDA Prime Aged Beef, fresh seafood, and many other offerings including an extensive wine list.

The chef selects each piece, before hand-cutting and seasoning the thick, tender and juicy steaks to your specifications, then to seal in the flavor, we flash-sear your steak on our special high-heat grills. Our from scratch kitchen crafts everything fresh daily from dressings and sauces to appetizers, sides, and desserts.
