We were looking forward to try Merriman's...we went by for an early afternoon cocktail. Doors were open and there was very limited a/c, if any...and it was VERY hot in August. Hardly any patrons here...hardly any patrons in the Shops of Kukuiula, for that matter. We sat at the bar. Wine was on the high end for 2 house wines.... More

The bottom floor of Merriman's is more casual dining like burgers and flatbread pizzas. Service and food were excellent. Nice setting in a local shopping complex. Great drinks as well!

Found this restaurant after a hike and kids doing ATVing. Good burgers and pizza, wait a little long for food at a non-busy time.

First of all the service was top notch, our server had a wonderful answer for all the questions we had. Her depth of knowledge on food and wine was what every person or business owner would love their servers / employees to have. The setting was nice at night with soft music and light rain in the background. Overall one... More

We each had pizzas and they were great. Crust was super crusty. Had a good beer and wine selection. A great place for lunch with quality ingredients.

We have been to Merriman's restaurants on the Big Island and in Maui. They are some of the best meals we had. This one on Kauai doesn't disappoint. Delicious fresh fish and locally grown meats and produce cooked to perfection.

This place really delivered for our final dinner on the island this past trip to Kauai. The waitstaff is outstanding. The kitchen seemed extremely efficient on a Saturday evening with a full dining room. The food was perfect, loaded with flavors but not trying too hard. They have a kids menu with real yummy food on it, not just microwaved... More

I shared the lobster dish. It was good. But way overpriced for what we got. We also got 2 additional sides, beets and broccoli. I love beets but these were nothing special, just plain beets. The broccoli was decent. My husband got the clam chowder, that was excellent. Another friend for a Cesar salad- you can def skip this. It... More
