One of a Kind Experience

This is by far Niagara's best surf anf turf restaurant, hands down! Very expensive and high end, but definitely worth the money. If you go for lunch, try the downstairs lounge with the grand piano for a Lobster Sandwich. For dinner, you can expect a lengthy meal with lots to savor. It is in a... read more

An easy review to write....five stars across the board. A superbly prepared and presented meal. Absolutely perfect from beginning to end and the service was to be applauded. The only downside to our our dining experience, and one that was NOT within the dining room's full control, was the ear shattering loudness and obvious self entitlement of a table of... More

My co worker and I were in town for work and decided to dine at this restaurant. We found it by doing a Google search, with the ratings been quite high we decided to give it a try. The service was excellent, the food was exquisite. I had the junior sirloin steak (medium well) it was perfect! My co worker... More

Returning home from a day spent in Niagara Falls with my daughter and her boyfriend (they were visiting from Edmonton) we decided to stop in St. Catherines for supper. Unfamiliar with St. Catherines, we let the GPS guide us to a seafood place. We decided on The Blue Mermaid and weren't sure if we would stumble on a fast food... More

Dinner last night, middle of the week spur of the moment decision. Glad we did. As always, a great restaurant to dine at. Started off with their amazing Caesar Salad. My husband had the Turf'n Surf and I the Seafood Platter, and they fixed it just the way I like it, even allowed me to substitute some items. Mouth watering,... More

Had a wonderful dinner at Mermaid this evening to celebrate my birthday and our wedding anniversary. The food was outstanding and our waiter Dave was the best. He really went out of his way to ensure we had a wonderful dining experience, even though they did not have any "dainties". The Sole Meuniere was superb. And the Cerries Jubilee second... More

We have been going to Blue Mermaid for decades. The lounge downstairs is a wonderful place to sit and listen to piano music by Eddie Pizzo(also there for decades). They serve a lounge menu that is excellent (especially steak sandwich). Prices are high but so is quality of food, service and location.
