Merle’s Whiskey Kitchen is back. The popular downtown hangout at 122 West Main reopened Tuesday (April 21) for curbside pickup and delivery, with a special limited food menu and the option to add to-go beer, wine, select bourbons and Merle’s signature Mannyritas (alcohol available for curbside orders only). 

The hours of operation at Merle’s are Tuesday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., with delivery available through DoorDash and Grubhub, where you can order online — or call 502-290-8888. Merle’s is giving back, offering a 10% discount for healthcare workers and first responders.

Gift cards also are available online. Proceeds go to the Merle’s Whiskey Kitchen Employee Relief fund.

Has it really been almost eight years? Manny & Merle debuted in November, 2012; the name was altered later, but the popular vibe has stayed the same.
