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 have made Eddie Merlot's our night before the 500 dinner every year for the past 8 years. The food and the service are always excellent.

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.

When the server bills the lamb as "the best in the country," the bar is set and unfortunately, the bar fell woefully short. Lack of flavor, gristle and fat does not the best lamb make. However, all of the sides: mashed potatoes, Mac and cheese, Brussel Sprouts, creamed corn and baked potato were terrific. The filets, according to my mother... More

Had a family outing here and were treated like royalties! Food is exceptional, as is the service staff, especially Kim! Had the smoking jumbo shrimp cocktail and crab cakes as starters, then we had the best steaks ever! The Tomahawk Rib-Eye, a Bone-in Filet, a Wagyu Filet, a Wagyu New York Strip, the Sashimi Tuna Steak and my wife had... More

The staff treated us like king and queen. Great decor, not very busy on a Monday night. Had the special summer 3 course meal with a bottle of wine. The wine is half price on a Monday night..........all the more reason to go out on a weekday. The filet was tender and the salmon was excellent. Barely room for dessert..........the... More

Eddie Merlot's As far as steak restaurants go, Eddie Merlots is one of favorite. The food is consistent, the filets, the sides and the service are usually top notch! The service and food were again perfect. We are in the bar, wife had a filet, cooked perfect. She also had a Caesar salad, a little too heavy on the dressing.... More
