  • redrocker99 reviewFood is excellent and wait staff is attentive. Great and varied menu and desserts. Only down was the caesar salad...weak in flavor.

  • ChefMozMerchant's is divided into 3 floors; each with its own unique character. First floor has bar and grille. Good food. Recommend the Salmon BLT sandwich and fries (or yummy fruit). Second floor is the fine dining area. Great, great atmosphere with wonderful food. Recommend the Ahi Tuna and Filet Mignon. Third Floor is for large parties up to 200. Certain areas are divided for more privacy or rent the entire floor to yourself.Wait staff varies depending on who you get. Some care about making it an experience for the customer. Others are bitter and angry because they are lifetime servers.

  • Roshel LThe food was okay. I had higher expectations. Looks like a fancy restaurant but their food presentation wasn't the greatest. If I wasn't so hungry, I probably would have found somewhere else to eat.

  • Melissa Longwill-AckermanEverything we had was amazing! The service is spot on! The Lemon Tart was to die for, the goat cheese on the kale salad was the best I've ever had! Already wanting to go back!

    55555 by Larisa Grollemond


  • Cameron SThe southern fry is a can't-miss appetizer. Loved the brisket. Cocktails were only alright, I'd skip them next time.

    55555 by Cameron S
