The kitchen substituted a veggie pattie into the burger of my choice which I certainly appreciated. My husband and I enjoyed every bite of our burgers and fries. The burgers were old school, large and just delicious. Staff were friendly. Great location outside the convention centre.

I had the pleasure of having one of the famous burgers and a pint of Peroni at the Merrywell while visiting with international colleagues. The burgers are to die for, not sure if the Heart Foundation of Australia would agree, but they are sensational. Give yourself treat and try one.

Hungry and tired Merrywell looked like the right fit to get a quick feed. Not big burger eaters but theirs were great, the service was very quick and efficient, priced pretty well for Southbank area too. Won't go to those big chain burger stores but would definitely go back to The Merrywell next time in Melbourne

I dare you. Order a milkshake and tell me you're not impressed. It comes with lollies. The onion rings are the best ever. The food is fresh and comes out quickly. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the place has a great vibe.

used to love this place but in our recent visits it's been disappointing. the burgers are "juicy" with dripping fat and a slurry of flavourless sauces. The buns are so greasy on the outside your fingers leave prints on them. customer service is virtually non existent. the table supply of napkins, cutlery and sauces is almost always empty, queues are...

As you might all know I love a good hamburger and I had been to this place before so went again for the Monday night special. Well I don't like giving bad reviews but when it has to be done it has to be done. The chips were cooked to perfection but the onion rings where not. The onion rings... More

Merrywell is located within Crown Casino. It lacks personality but my waitress Yvette was fantastic - very attentive, ensured I didn't have to wait for ages for my food (dining alone) and was wonderful. The food was tasty - I had the ribs - but was expensive. Licenced venue.

We ate at the "downstairs" area of the Merrywell and ordered a couple of burgers, combo chips and onion rings and a milkshake. Both the burgers were average - I had the Merrywell 2.0 as I was curious with the special sauce. I didny find it "special" at all plus the fact that the other half the burger bun was... More
