    First time at this restaurant. Great atmosphere, outstanding server, food very good. Had the burnt orange Old-Fashioned, good flavor, strong pour. Table split two apps, Calamari and Bruschetta. Calamari was solid, Bruschetta was excellent. Wife and I split wedge salad (both halves were a full plate), and it was outstanding. Had the clam chowder, different take on the recipe but still very good. We also split the bone-in ribeye special for $48. Best steak I have had in a restaurant in quite some time. Finished with the vanilla creme brulee and the chocolate creme brulee, both winners. Loved the QPR of this eatery. Fair pricing, really good food.

    The food and service were excellent, as usual. They were not serving out on the patio because they didn’t have enough staff, so we our party of 7 was seated upstairs. There was a huge party congregated in the private room and they were very loud and kept coming into the main room, congregating around the bar area and wandering around. We asked that they close the doors going into the private room (which they have done at times when we reserved the private room), but they never stayed shut for very long. We could hardly hear each other talk and it disrupted our dinner party a lot. We ended up sitting on the patio after our meal just so that we could hear each other talk. I realize that this is not the restaurant’s fault, but I just thought you should know because it was not as enjoyable as it should have been. I feel that a large group party should remain in the private room and not act like the whole upstairs belonged to them when there were other customers eating there.

    Meritage is a long-running and beloved restaurant with a great ambience. The food is mediocre but could be so much better if it weren't so salty, swimming in butter and overcooked. They take wonderful scallops and fish, overcook them until they are dry and rubbery, then cover them in salty butter. In contrast, the brussels sprouts were undercooked, so were also tough and were equally smothered in a salty, fatty sauce. They are understaffed, which we are really patient with given all the current challenges. Our waitress was really kind and tried her best but was running up and downstairs and outside to cover the whole restaurant so she was out of breath and I felt badly for her (and us). Finally, the cost is really high for the quality of the food.

    We were seated at an outdoor table, as we requested. We were lucky because they don't reserve outdoor tables; it's first come first serve. We had the Daily Catch ($32) and a walleye special ($38). Both were done perfectly and portions were generous. Service from Kristin L. was prompt and courteous. Overall we had a fine dinner but the prices resulted in the "Value" being rated only four stars instead of five. It was an anniversary dinner so the restaurant gave us a small dessert on the house. Wine, dinners, tax and tip came to $150. Definitely recommended

    Love this place except on Friday nights (didn't know there was a live band!) I've been for hapy hour, great; and I've been for dinner which was also great and must not have been on a Friday night. We were there this past Friday for a 8th grade graduation dinner. No one mentioned (maybe they thought we knew) there was a live band that night. We would've preferred to not have a live band having a late dinner with grandma 😏. No one mentioned it so would've been nice to know even as we confirmed our reservation and before we were seated.

    First let me tell you..Tyler in the bar area was SUPERB! The 2 hostesses in the front were not. Please teach them how to greet a customer. Secondly... the dish I had (Scallops) had way too much pepper on them. I sent my meal back. My friend had the Blue Cheese burger and it was just so so. I have been here several times but the food this last time was not up to par.

    Wife and myself sat outside in courtyard area on a beautiful night. Lots of friendly locals there and people walking there pets on the sidewalks. Had a at the beach vibe. I had the fish special which was COD over seasoned rice and it was excellent. Wife had sirloin topped with crab cake also very good. Lots of specials so ask server about them. Tiramisu for dessert was excellent

    We decided to try Meritage for our anniversary dinner which was noted in our reservation. We were seated in the very noisy barroom next to a window through which we were able to view two passing freight trains. My wife started off with the mussel appetizer which was very good. Her main course was one of the specials. It was monkfish with rice and a vegetable medley. The monkfish was good. The rice had a strange unpleasant taste. The vegetable medley consisted of a little spinach, some diced tomatoes and about 30 cloves of garlic. Needless to say, it wasn't very appetizing. My dinner of pan seared scallops was similar to my wife's. The scallops were ok. The rice had a strange taste and the roasted carrots ranged from mushy to crunchy. Although our server was friendly, service was not that fast. Overall, there are other restaurants we will visit to celebrate special occasions.

    Our reservation was for 8pm and we had the bar all to ourselves although the patio was full. The ambience was 'Glendale Village Charm.' We shared mussels, a Meritage salad, and crabcakes with roasted brussel sprouts. Everything was beautifully presented and delicious! And of course, we had extra bread with the wonderful, garlic mussels sauce.

    Came for lunch on a Friday. We were sat outside in a shaded spot which was lovely, until the trains would roll through. The waitress was very busy but attentive, all of the food was perfect and came out quickly. The literal only bad part was the 3-4 trains that rolled through since it is SO loud and you have to stop your conversation. Next time we would just ask to be seated inside. The sweet potato fries are AMAZING seriously if you get a steak get it with the fries :)

    Mother’s Day in the evening for late dinner. What a delicious special fish dish (flounder) for something totally different. Cooked perfectly along with my husband’s pork chop which is a regular favorite.
