Last week I met my friends in the bar area of the Blue Mermaid for a birthday celebration. For years we have been meeing for wine and lobster sandwiches - they are absolutely the best! It has become a tradition to gather there; the service is very good and the atmosphere is cozy. Although the lobster sandwich may seem a... More

Those are my quick observations after a recent lunch here on November 6th. You can make an argument that their lunch menu is more interesting and better than the dinner menu. It's not cheap, however. The sandwiches are in the mid to upper teens - my lobster sandwich ( good quality for Ontario standards ) was $16. Glasses of wine... More

First visit. Meals for wife (swordfish) and myself (Sea Bass) were excellent. Calamari was not deep fried - but was pretty boring as prepared. But the standard meals are way overpriced, as were the evening specials. Definite sticker shock. Note that the web site does not list prices with the menu. If cost is no concern or someone else is...

Went here for Lunch with leadership to celebrate 40 years with the company. Best meal/experience ever. The seafood chowder reminded me of Bar Harbour Maine-delicious. The steaks are amazing and cook to perfection. Definitely try the dessert--make room unbelievable and fabulous selection. Impeccable staff that treat you like royalty. Thanks Gus Perfection all around dining experience.

decided to try the restaurant after reading the reviews. Glad we did. Wasn't sure where the GPS was taking us but once inside the place was lovely. Service was great. David did an excellent job. My lobster soup was very good with lots of lobster. Husband had escargot done in the traditional way in the shell. Our mains were salmon... More

Best Caesar salad and delicious steaks done exactly as ordered; great choice of wines and delicious coffees with liqueurs. We go Spring and Fall when we attend Shaw festival. Wonderful staff. Please don't show up in jeans.

Want to have an experience like none other? Then the Blue Mermaid is for you. Table side Caesar Salad~ Lobster Thermidor~and end with another table side cherries jubilee. Not to forget the start to your meal olives- pickles and a salmon rice dish unlike anything you have ever tasted. Breads are perfection just like your entire dining experience.

The food was very good. We have the salmon, lobster tails, Oysters Cesar salad. I have to admit our bill was rather large over 160.00 for two people but the food was good!

We were in St. Catherines yesterday for a ceremony to honour a dear friend. After we left the University we dined at Blue Mermaid. A wonderful experience. Service was very friendly and fun. When we alerted them that we did not have a whole lot of time as we had to drive back to Toronto, the staff were most accommodating.... More
