I love the food here. I used to come here when I ran squad and we frequented Merk's quite frequently. They switched buildings and once my daughter started working there last year I began to eat there again. All their food is good but my...More

We were out as a family and did the "where do you want to eat" routine. My husband pulled up "restaurants in our area" and Merks came up. It had high ratings so we tried it. Service was great! Food was wonderful! Restaurant was clean!...More

I was unimpressed when we pulled into the parking lot. The building is not much to see, and when we walked in it took a while to be seated. The service was slow throughout the entire visit, but the menu was expansive and delicious.
