My wife and I went here on a date night and the experience was second to none. We have eaten at many upscale restaurants and this is by far our favorite. The ribeye was cooked to perfection and the sides, we had were the mac n cheese, sweet potato casserole, and the spinach salad with the bacon dressing. The drinks... More

A group of coworkers and myself were attending MATS convention and went to eat here on our first night. Even though we didn't have a reservation they made room for us! The service was excellent, we had a dinner captain... not a waiter; however whatever he wanted to be called he was excellent and attentive. The food: we had an... More

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.

The food is incredible. My wife said this was the best food she has ever eaten. She had seafood and I had a ribeye. The steak is melt in your mouth and the seafood was amazing. We were celebrating a belated anniversary and we were not disappointed. We are bourbon drinkers and they have a fairly large selection. The service... More

The staff was excellent. We were in town for the Bourbon Trail. We asked our waiter some information regarding the area, the information he gave us was very helpful. The food and drinks were awesome. We had the carrot cake for dessert. The size of the dessert is for two and very good. The best carrot cake we've had. Would... More

As a restaurant holding itself out as a fine dining establishment, Eddie Merlot's makes promises on which it does not deliver. The issue isn't bad food or rude service. It's that both should be much better considering what Eddie Merlot's purports itself to be. Eddie Merlot's has a significant value problem. Food: The food was good enough. I had a... More

First and foremost, I received excellent service here, and I want to emphasize that point. The rest of the experience, however, was average at best. I started with oysters on the half shell- disappointing. Plated in such a way that most of the liquor had run out onto the ice, and served with a lot of condiments, which in hindsight... More
