Eddie Merlot’s is an outstanding restaurant. The steaks are high quality and robust, the seafood tender and succulent, the atmosphere lavish, warm and perfectly accented with delicate flourishes to create a sense of comfort. Whether nestled between the enormous columns in the dining room or seated at the bar across from the glittering rows of spirits, Eddie Merlot’s is the perfect place to spend an evening with your family. But it is more than that. With enough space to accommodate any size of reception, it is also the perfect venue to celebrate your wedding.
Located in Montgomery, Eddie Merlot’s has three private dining rooms available for a variety of group sizes, from small receptions of 20 to large parties of 72. The restaurant can host engagement parties, wedding showers, rehearsal dinners and morning-after brunches. You can even rent the entire facility for a wedding of up to 300 guests, with the ceremony occurring between the vast, opposing set of colonnades in the dining room and the reception in the adjacent bar.
Of course, no matter what you decide to do at Eddie Merlot’s, you will be treated to the finest personal service, highest quality foods, freshest ingredients and most expansive wine list you can imagine. Private dining menus, complete with a wide variety of hors d’oeuvres, entrees, desserts, fine wine and cocktails are sure to please.
“What really stands out is the amount of customization a bride has here,” says Melanie Sandy, sales manager at Eddie Merlot’s. “We make the menu and experience perfect for each individual bride, and we also make it special for each individual guest as well. We are not a place where everyone gets the same meal. We actually take orders and create everyone’s food separately, so everyone who gets a steak is going to get it exactly how they want it cooked. It makes for a much fresher presentation.”
Each detail is given careful attention at Eddie Merlot’s. The restaurant can coordinate your floral needs, create fabulous decorations, assist with your guests’ lodging and help you choose the entertainment that is just right for the event. This makes Eddie Merlot’s much more than a restaurant or event facility; it is a partner and guide, helping you navigate every aspect of your event.
