OpenTable salutes Eddie Merlot’s

We've got a table for you!

Many of our customers use OpenTable to make a reservation with us. It’s easy, convenient and quick, and it allows customers to post reviews and share experiences. OpenTable is the service we use on our web site for setting up reservations, and we also use it on Facebook under the reservations tab.

OpenTable recently recognized the top 100 restaurants nationally with the most positive reviews under its Diners’ Choice Awards. The list of winners is derived from more than 10 million reviews submitted by OpenTable diners for more than 12,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

We’re proud to report that Eddie Merlot’s made this esteemed list. Since this comes from reviews from customers, it’s especially meaningful to us.

We wanted to give you the full list of all winters so you can see just how geographically diverse it is. There were only two restaurants in Indiana selected; we’re one of them. Based on feedback collected from OpenTable diners between November 2010 and October 2011, the following 50 restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, received the highest scores from OpenTable diners for having the best American cuisine.
