“Great dinner with a view”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

We ate here on a Saturday night after arriving on the island. The dinner service was a little drawn out in time but I appreciated that. We both had steaks and shared our some tasty taro cakes. I had the ribeye and suggest to anyone the same but the fillet she has was also perfect. Several gluten free options as my wife can't have it. The flourless chocolate cake for desert was a perfect ending. Make a reservation a week or so in advance. And you should call them to make it. The online version doesn't show all their availabilities.

“Not a good family restaurant! ”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

My family of 4 recently dined at Merriman's. I would not recommend bringing kids ages 9-12 here because of the lack of food in the kid's dinners. Everything on the kid's menu is only 4 ounces! The kid's menu is for kids up to age 12, but I think that 4 ounces is enough to feed a 4 year old! Nothing else but the fish & chips interested my older kids on the adult menu. (There were no burgers, chicken fingers, etc. on it.) For adults, the food was ok, nothing too great. The only great thing about our dinner was the view! It was absolutely gorgeous!

“Loud Inside”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We eat downstairs were burgers and pizza are served. We had a group of 6 and we ordered 3 different pizzas from the menu. The service was slow but the pizza was good, not great but just good. What we really didn't like was it was very loud, they had live music outside on the patio that was too loud given that there were a couple of locals that had a few to many that were basically yelling at the bar. Upstairs may be better.

We had two fabulous meals there. On this trip the food and server were so good, we requested him again. We eat overlooking the ocean. It was expensive but enjoyed every bite.

“horrible cocktail waitress but good food and view”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Great view and food was good but our drinks arrived after our food was finished. We sat outside on the patio for a wonderful sunset.
All was great except our server disappeared and blamed it on one bartender but we could see two bartenders working. I would give a higher rating but the service was so rude and gratuity was included. Kind of a bummer.
