We get treated like royalty when we go. Our son mentioned to the manager, Kevin Boudreau, that he was collecting quarters for the all the US states and needed just one more. Every time we go, Kevin lets him know that he looks in the register to wee if he has the quarter. He has that perfect balance of being... More

We had a reservation for 7:00pm, arrived 15 minutes early to be told there would be a slight wait, and to sit at the bar. We did, for nearly 2 hours! This place is a nightmare, tons of people were seated before us as we continued to drop a ton of money at the bar, and if you buy a... More

We were return customers who had an impressive first visit. We came back expecting the same type of experience. We were greetes at the door and seated quickly with a reservation for an early dinner. The restaurant itself is very nice inside. Very nicely decorated but I found it odd that there were tv's in the dining room. Our service... More

This is supposedly an upscale steak and seafood house. It's located across from Target between two sports bars and a movie theater- not exactly high rent yet you will pay $125+ per person plus wine/ drinks. They also have $95 steaks al a carte. Nicely decorated once you walk through but the reception is awful. TV's in the dining rooms?... More

This was my first time dining at this restaurant. My job requires me to host a lot of business dinners in fine dining restaurants so I tend to have set expectations of what I think should be a standard of quality. This evening was a fun night out with couples and we all had cocktails, appetizers and entrees. The restaurant... More

My girlfriend and I dine out fairly often. For special events such as birthday or anniversary we go to more upscale places. Since it was our anniversary and we had a couple recommendations we thought we would give EM's a try. I made reservations for 7:00 on 1/28/17. We arrived just before 7:00 and despite a reservation issue with the... More

Dined at Eddie Merlot's last night for my birthday. This was our first -- and probably our last -- visit to this restaurant. We were seated in a dining area off of the bar, which was very busy. Noise level loud and hard to talk with friends we were with. Not sure if the main dining room would have been... More

We had been to the restaurant a while ago and ate in the large dining room that had very few diners. This time we requested the lounge area and loved the cozy feel. We had just seen a movie and didn't want a full meal and the menu was perfect. The martinis were delicious and very generous portions. The blue... More

Austin was our server and he could not have been nicer. We had Filet Mignon pot stickers, which were good, but the calamari was AMAZING!!!! Its served in a rice sesame bowl, a beautifully presented. I had NO idea that this was a steak and seafood place, but I would highly recommend it!

Food was exquisite, had the Waldorf salad and sea bass. The pineapple infused vodka was very tasty. Service and atmosphere were top notch. Also met a stakeholder in the business and was impressed with his attention and efforts.
