This is "slow" season, and we were able to get right in to a very popular French-Country style restaurant right here on little Anna Maria Island, no reservation needed. Clean, quiet, fast service, and an experience that makes one think"hurry back, try another dish". We wanted to eat light, and each chose a salad and appetizer. My wife had watercress... More

My wife and I have dined at Sign of the Mermaid over several years, and have never had a bad dish; instead, they are always delicious - compliments to Chef Ed Spring. We lived in south Louisiana for 30 years and dined at the best restaurants in New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Sign of the Mermaid is equal to them.... More

I am a local. Stopped by for the first time today. The hostess was great! The server was just okay. The female server kept giving me crossed looks and she wasn't even the person waiting on me. The food was amazing, but a little overpriced. I mean $4.00 for a side of meat is a little pricey for me. Because... More

If you are on Anna Maria ever you must try this place!! This breakfast was fabulous. They're famous stuffed French toast is ... well ... Famously delish! My husband said best breakfast ever. We'll be back for sure.

I was so disappointed in the stuffed shrimp. Waiter asked how everything was, I told him I was disappointed in my meal. He wandered away. Didn't ask again. My friend got the seafood pasta and said it was great. I didn't fuss about it but would have loved the waiter to try to make it better. I won't be back.

I have come to the sign of the mermaid three times for breakfast and each time I loved it. First of all it is a great atmosphere. The people are very nice. And the food is even more great. I always go for the breakfast special, that is one meal for 4 dollars. It is a great deal. The one... More

My wife had the chicken florentine. It was really delicious! I had the grouper and was not quite as impressed with it as I had hoped to be. Overall, the food was good, the service was great, and the dessert was excellent! The key lime pie was fantastic. Can't wait to go back just to get another piece!

First, the odor in this place made the entire meal very unpleasant. It is set in an old home that smells very musky and like it has mold. I sneezed during the entire meal. The service is slow. I had the grouper and it was a very average meal. The desserts are fabulous and I would stop to get a... More

We have gone to the Sign of the Mermaid for 6 years running. We have been for Easter Brunch, Easter Dinner, breakfast, dinner. Every time we have gone the food has been great, the service excellent. Love their ceasar salad! Prices are high, but worth it!

I have never had a bad dinner experience here. Sometimes the service is a little laid back, but I am never in a hurry here. I enjoy every meal I have ever had. The owner Ed, seems to always be on the grill...and I thank him.
