Eddie Merlot's has been our favorite spot for many years. Never disappointed. Service is awesome and Joseph is a wonderful host. Whether you eat in the dining room or lounge you can expect the same incredible service. We have several private parties as well.

We love the steaks here. I love the filet, but my husband and son love the bourbon ribeye. Everything is wonderful. For sides, we love the mashed potatoes, but the lobster mac and cheese is excellent for something different. The have a great wine list...look for what they are featuring, sometimes you can get a reasonable price to try something... More

We use Eddie Merlot's as our go-to for special dinners with by ourselves or with friends. Very well run, excellent steaks particularly for a special filet that had to be one of the best I had ever tasted. Very good variety with salads, soups, terrific wine list and appetizers. This place goes out of its way to get you to... More

The restaurant decorating is very cool. The service was great and the food was very delicious. It's on the expansive side,... More

My husband and I typically have our anniversary dinner here each year. Additionally, we enjoy spending Easter dining here, and we will stop in on weekends for a bite and sit in the bar for something a little more relaxing and casual. On 11/17/16 Jason was our server, he has proven excellent services as he has teen care of us... More

We four had a wonderful dinner at Eddie Merlot's! Three of us had a cup of lobster bisque with a leafy green salad...just enough food--everything tasted so good! Steak is a specialty and was served cooked exactly to order. We were treated to see quite a few of the Indianapolis Colts football players walk through the restaurant to their private... More

Wife and I went for Devour Northside, and opted for off menu filets for a bit. Worth every penny, they perfect medium rare. Flavorful and tender. Great Caesar Salads, Creme Brûlée, and a huge, delicious strawberry shortcake made it all good. Charles took excellent care of us.
