St Patty's night at the Merrill Tavern. Abundant portions of corned beef and cabbage was tasty but expensive. The music was wonderful. It was a total packed house and with expensive drinks. We had a fine time over all but it was an expensive evening.

The prime rib is the best I've had so far. Also on the lunch menu, The French Dip is excellent. I have yet to have a bad meal.

We have been there often and enjoy the food. Menu is mostly the same it does change from winter to summer but would like to see more dishes added. Just enough to eat so don't plan on bringing leftovers home.
