    Noisy and blaring sun shine in one of our guests eyes! Felt rushed
    The Restaurant at Merrill HouseResponded on May 21, 2024
    Hello guest, I sincerely apologize that the sun was in your guests' eyes and that you felt rushed. That is certainly not the experience we want to provide! We encourage our guests to speak up if they need any accommodation and we could have reseated your party at a table where the sun was not so intense. As for the feeling of being rushed, I appreciate your feedback and will speak to the staff so we can improve. Again, thank you for your thoughts and I do hope we will see you again soon.

    The Countylicious menu was fantastic. Great value for 3 courses. Wines were excellent and our server, Kaylin was very friendly and efficient. The Merrill House has lived up to its outstanding reputation. Will definitely return.

    Restaurant is relatively small. Lots of servers but slow service. Organization? “Sommelier” poured entire bottle into two glasses. Never had that happen to me, ever!! Overall, the food was average. Was there for “Countylicious” so food was discounted. Does not justify $8 for 4 small pieces of sour dough bread as a “side”. Just up the price and include bread! Lamb shank was excellent. Beef Chuck braised steak had zero taste

    Hi Greg, though we have been communicating off the platform, I wanted to take the opportunity to personally thank you for bringing these issues to my attention. We have addressed these concerns with the staff and have implemented changes that will ensure what you experienced will not happen again. We take our guests' feedback very seriously and always use it as an opportunity to do better. We look forward to serving you next time you are in. Best, Astrid

    We've eaten at Merrill in the past (our first time was a Titanic-themed dinner in 2012) and this was the first time we had a late reservation. The restaurant was busy and energetic when we arrived, but quiet (only two couples) when we left. Food was very tasty (this visit was during Countylicious) and the menu offered lots of choice. We started with Carrot soup, had chicken and lamb shank as mains and saved a little room for dessert. There was an option of a second course. The choices looked interesting, but we passed this time. Service is very good. Staff are around, but seem to be at your table only when you need them. Great choice for a special dinner.
