The prices at the Merrywell were higher than average and the food and service were average. The waitress told us that the drinks that come with the meal were tiny and we were better of paying for a bottle of soft drink. $4.50 for a tiny bottle that fitted in the same size glass that was part of the meal....

Booked reservation for family of 5 via open table. We were seated outside in smoking area, but no option or advice on Open Table or by staff who greeted us. Worth asking if your first visit. We were relocated further along but still in a smoking area! Food was nice, but service consistency could be better, one of our order... More

looking for something different for lunch with 4 business associates, we spotted the Merrywell and decided to give it a try. First impression was the floor needed a good sweep and mopping.

After a day out sight seeing Melbourne we decided to stop here for our evening meal , The burgers were nice and tasty although my wife's burger was pink in the middle after a request for a well cooked burger this was done with no hesitation and I had the fish which was cooked to perfection

We had the wings, baby back ribs, and an awesome cheeseburger! Downed it with a bottle of Corona w/ lemon wedge. Nice location beside the Yarra River. Got a table in the upper floor for better ambiance overlooking the river. Could've stayed outside on the deck but only high tables were available. All in all a great dining experience.
