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.

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.

First Ill say, if you are looking for a very over the top service restaurant, this is the place for you. I did enjoy the place, but something seemed off about the service to the decor. The decor seemed very old fashion. The service does make your feel like your a VIP. The food is great and lots of really... More

When ever I'm in the St. Catharines area, I make a point of going to the Blue Mermaid, the customer services is excellent, the food is devine. I absolutely love the Centennial platter, and oysters Rockefeller. The special attention that one receives from the minute you walk in the door to when you walk out, keeps me coming back. David,...

I recently dined at the Blue Mermaid and was treated like family. Our waiter, Dave, was wonderful and made the whole evening perfect. We were introduced to the restaurant owner and his son, and shared stories of their hometown and ours. A better evening could not be had anywhere else.

My wife and I have been at this restaurant at least eight times in the last two years. We always looked forward to it when we come into the area to visit a relative. This all ended last night, when we were served by a new waiter named "Dave". First, we ordered a glass of champagne for my wife. Dave... More

The first time I entered into the Blue Mermaid I was amazed at the interior. It was like walking into a 5 star restaurant from the movies. I went there two times and both were magnificent. The food was delicious, the wine was great and the servers were knowledgeable and charming. David who served me both times made me and... More
