The staff and chef were so accommodating to my dietary needs. They prepared a special order of fish one night and did a curried goat another night, both were fanastic. Portions were very generous, food was very fresh. My guests who are not gluten free enjoyed their meals as well. The seafood... read more

While having dinner, you can watch several tarpons swimming in the water thanks to submerged lighting. Good local food and atmosphere.

Although the hours seem to be a mystery, we went for dinner on a Sunday night, and it was open and full. The fish entrees were good, I had the lime-shrimp, and others had the whole fried snapper, which they loved. It's right on the water, so great atmosphere, although the restaurant itself is very casual.

After spending the last 3 days trying to stop for lunch, we have yet to find it open. No sign or any reference as to the hours. Slightly disappointing as I was looking forward to trying this place out for lunch....

My husband loves the fresh fish sticks at the Mermaid. I had a sample and they were everything he said they were. Very fresh fish at the Mermaid. The owner Lisa is a very friendly. The Fish sticks were not on the menu the day we went, but luckily they made them for us. Just ask.

This is a great place for lunch. The food is fresh and the fish is caught locally. It is situated right on the water with beautiful water views.

Stopped here after reading other reviews. The Bar sits right on the water facing the Drake Channel. An excellent place to get drinks and just hang out and take in the view. Be sure to look in the water behind the bar. There were several 4 and 5 foot long Tarpons waiting to be fed by the kitchen staff. I... More

We were staying at rosewood and wanted a little local flair. We arrived and ordered drinks and it was quick for island time! She asked to take out order and we placed them not realizing there were specials which we would have preferred but she never mentioned or offered - the fish was fresh and enjoyable and she was attentive...

Great Lobster buffet - wide variety of local seafood and veggies - good value. Drinks a bit weak - ask for a good pour.
