    The perfect venue for our rehearsal dinner!

    Merrill's was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding rehearsal dinner!

    We reserved the upper deck and had it all to ourselves with a personal bartender. The waterfront view was beautiful and peaceful. The rates were extremely competitive, and virtually no minimum charge. We had less than 25 people. So for a smaller group, it's hard to beat this place and the quality was amazing.

    We worked directly with Krystol and she was incredible. Extremely responsive to emails and phone calls, and catered everything exactly to our specifications. The food was wonderful. Service at the restaurant was amazing. The appetizers never stopped, until the main course was served. We even had a few guests show up late, and they still made them a full course meal for no extra charge.

    Would highly recommend this restaurant!

    Best day ever!

    Not only are the event spaces beautiful but everyone there is absolutely wonderful, with all the uncertainty with covid (we booked with them last minute as a plan C cause everything else didnt work out) the manager always responded to my emails quickly and gave all the information I needed. They decorated beautifully, way better then we ever could of and were very understanding when we did want to change something. The food was delicious and the service was amazing.
