Good beer drinking spot on the water

Lunched here one afternoon as we explored the island. I had the jerk chicken sandwich which was good. It was a nice place to sit and enjoy a beer next to the water. I'm not sure I would want to be here late in the day as it seems to be more of a local hangout than a tourist spot.

We had a nice sunset dinner here. You will be eating and drinking with the locals. The grilled fish was extremely fresh and delicious. A great meal at a great price. Be sure to look for the school of tarpon who live under the dock...

Mermaids was first place we visited after long day of traveling. Nice staff, and cold drinks were a great welcome. The view with dock for kids to explore was great. Food was fresh and good. The kids demanded a second lunch later in the week.

This is the first restaurant that we went to and we were not too impressed. Setting was not particularly nice, even though we were eating above the sea. The food average

Loved everything about this place! My husband and I enjoyed this restaurant so much that we went back several times. The staff was friendly, the fish was fresh, and the scenery was unbelievable! We definitely would recommend to everyone! Not fancy but you can't beat the view!

The Mermaid was just so disappointing this time around. You can't beat the location and the ambiance, there was even a great breeze to cool things off! I had called at lunchtime to confirm that they had lobster and was told they had just gotten some in that morning, so I made a reservation for eight. We waited for more... More

We stopped by and ordered for take out. Came back 1/2 later and picked up a TON of food- chicken, ribs, and sides. Just told them to give us a same of everything, as we were feeding 10 people. They were so friendly and it was great to have that much food on short notice. My in-laws went there a... More

I'm puzzled by some of the previous reviews. Mermaids is one of the few places we visited twice during a 10-day stint on Virgin Gorda. It's a mid-price-range dinner place with the best burger on the island. Good salads and daily specials. They accommodated swapping side dishes, and the service was great. We will definitely go back next time in... More

Just a decent bar by the side of the Marina. Nothing to write home about. All pretty average. Not cheap either which is pretty well in line with all the bars in Virgin Gorda. Food is average. If your already at the Marina, Ok its a place for a drink and a snack if your not there already its not... More
