Stumbled upon this little gem

The scenery from this little waterfront bar is beautiful. We enjoyed the food. My jerk shrimp on a salad was spicy and excellent. Nice place to dine outside.

Very nice location just on beach over sea. Service is good, menu short with local dishes but food is like fast food. Only shirimps for started was good but in menu is was written it is tembura but it was only deep fried without tempura. Steak was very bad quality, and snapper was much too much grilled

We just visited for happy hour and encountered music and locals enjoying themselves. The rum punches were very good and it was the best local atmosphere we had found after 2 weeks in the bvi. Will definitely return for dinner. They always have fresh fish.

While cruising around the BVI's with 8 good friends, we pulled into Spanish Town looking for a good local lunch. We found it at Mermaids. Just a short walk from the town dock, we had awesome authentic food and drink, great service and amazing views right on the water. Nice spot for sure!

We came for drinks and appetizers and a beautiful sunset. Drinks were good and the coconut shrimp was also good. Not great, but good.

Excellent food at a great price, right on the water. This was a delightful find off the beaten path. Some of the best seafood we had on our trip.

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.
