We were here in late April for dinner. The food was mediocre, forgettable. The service people worked hard. I hadn't been here since around 1993 and I don't think the place has been upgraded since. The dining room is filthy. The rug looks like it was at a construction site. The place is dark and dingy. The outside of the... More

I have lunched in the bar area several times when in town with friends to shop. The food has always been delicious, the cocktails perfect, and the service top notch. We have tried many different items and have never been disappointed. Give it a try!

My friends and I had the most delicious meal at Merlino's! The pub style potato chips with dipping sauces were out of this world! Filet mignon and ribs and pasta were to die for! I highly recommend trying this place it is so good and has so many great options that will make everyone happy!

Finally came back to this hometown steakhouse. It's been about 25 years (not sure why). We had the filet - medium rare, with garlic mashed potatoes and cole slaw, along with a linguini and shrimp dish with slaw. The food was excellent. We will certainly be back and it won't take 25 years. Bon appetite!

Many times after a long work day a colleague and myself want to unwind for a relaxing good meal. We have always found this at Merlino's and have tried many of the options on the very large expansive menu. Always a special to try or just going with many of the favorites. I have had the pot roast, steak tips,... More

Visited with my brother whilst on vacation from the UK, hoped to get a top quality US steak but left disappointed. Service was ok had to prompt the waitress for top up drinks a few times, but the food came out quickly, we chose a starter platter which was pretty tasty and good and I was hopeful for a good...

We stopped for an early dinner after spending the day in N. Conway. We arrived at 5 and were seated right away upstairs. It got quite busy, several large groups and several families. Server was attentive. The meal was fantastic. I had steak tips with teriyaki sauce. They were tender and tasty, cooked just right. Baked potato was as expected.... More

I always come here it's usually pretty good, but this time, table was dirty with Food crumbs, took awhile for some one to come even just to order drinks (water, coffee etc.)Place not crowded, so why the table wasn't washed at least wasn't a good start for me.
