Just not enough effort to please customers. While the food is good and service OK, the whole experience was disappointing. I took my wife for an anniversary meal. Mistake.

My friends and I were visiting North Conway for some holiday shopping. We decided to take a chance on an unknown restaurant. I ordered hunter style steak tips, and my friends ordered prime rib and sirloin. We all were happy with our dinners, which were quite ample. The accompanying salad and mashed potatoes were good sized and fresh. We were... More

Late ordering (after 20+ mins), late drink arrival and way, way overpriced. On top of that, the bar had some several jerks that nearly knocked my wife and I down (seniors) on the way out without even an apology.

My wife and I were traveling for a day trip, so decided to try while in town. We arrived about 12 noon and were seated quickly. We had two appetizers to begin, Mussels (good ) and the bowl of onion rings ( very good ) both were the right size for 2-3 people. We both ordered the 8oz Mt Cranmore... More

We've been to Conway, many, many times but never tried Merlino's! Did so this weekend! We missed the tells right from drink delivery! Wife's Cosmo was WARM! We both had appetizers and when the server brought the accompanying sauces and spreads, we were unable to determine what they were or what flavor they were suppose to impart on the dishes.... More

We were staying at North Conway on a road trip. Saw that this restaurant reviewed well,so we went there. I had the 12oz sirloin & my wife had the pot roast. We agreed that this was one of the best meals that we have had as visitors to the USA on a number of occasions. If you are in this... More

We went here in 2015 and were very disappointed. We spent a great deal of money but received less than acceptable food. On the plus side the staff was friendly and the restaurant was clean. Don't like to give bad reviews but we were quite disappointed.

My wife and I were in Conway for a Craft Fair. We went to Merlino's for dinner and had to wait 45 minutes ( we thought that a good sign ). We were extremely wrong. The wait staff was very good but the quality of the food was very poor.WE WILL NOT GO BACK.
