    I love eating at Merrick Inn. Food and service are always great. I was disappointed though in the very limited wine list.

    Merrick Inn never disappoints. The food is imaginative and always delicious. The chef is to be commended. We appreciate having specials as a change of pace from the standard menu. Servers are also above average.

    Our server Sandy was outstanding. So polite, informative and efficient. I will always ask for her in the future! I would give her a 11 on a scale of 1-10!

    It’s been years since I’ve been to the Merrick. It was still just as lovely as before. We sat inside because it was so hot, but they do have a great patio too. The staff was very friendly and our waiter came to get our drink order right away. Service was very good . I ordered the Halibut special and my husband ordered the pasta with portobello mushroom. Both dishes were delicious! Their prices seemed reasonable and the quality of the food was excellent.

    Grouper fingers that were our families favorite are now thin fish shavings in heavy batter. The rest of the entrees looked about the same. Waitress was sweet but zero experience brought out salad 5 minutes before main dishes then disappeared. No bread. No water refills. Appeared with check before we were finished eating so we didn’t order dessert.

    Great atmosphere, service and food. The value was a nicely aligned with offerings as well. First time stopping in and ordered the special tonight, tomato salad and the halibut. Paired well with a Falcon’s Perch Pinot Noir. I’ll be back to try more items!

    Merrick Inn is now our annual wedding anniversary go-to place. We recently moved to town and have been here twice. The food is perfectly cooked, and the servings are very large. We took enough home for another meal. The service was exemplary. The attention given to our table was not too much nor too little. The server was very personable and attentive. I highly recommend Merrick Inn!

    Great food and service! It was a little pricy. The restaurant is in an old house, beautifully decorated with a wonderful patio and bourbon bar.
