My wife and I have been to the Mermaid by the sea twice. The first time we were there my wife ordered a chicken Oscar - which not sure if they knew what Oscar style is but it was not hollandaise sauce at all. I had a carbanara that was made with cream and not egg whites. We ate there... More

I met a friend here for dinner, and the restaurant did not disappoint. We were seated promptly, with our beverage orders promptly taken & delivered. My water glass was never empty during the entire time I was there. We both had the Cuban Black Bean Soup as an appetizer with the Seafood Pasta as a main course. The waitress cautioned... More

Tried them for breakfast Saturday after Thanksgiving. Crowded but I don't know why. The food was passable, the service slow (they were crowded), but atmosphere cheesy and old. The back door was rotted so you could see out and any pests had free access. Restroom right off dining area closed. I would not recommend.

one hour for starters, 90 mins for mains. Half the menu off, even items ordered were taken off after 45 mins. Luke warm veg - need I go on. This is supposed to be pricy up market food. Won't rush back!,

We booked dinner for Thanksgiving and were seated promptly by a very attentive server. We ordered the Thanksgiving dinner and what a disappointment. The starter was really nice but the main course was not. The plates arrived full of food and swamped in gravy and was stone cold.This was sent back to the kitchen and replacements brought. Initially it seemed... More

Sign of The Mermaid is in a class of it's own !!! I can truly say every time we eat there we are amazed by the quality, Freshness and portions that the Chef prepares. By far the BEST Seafood you will ever experience in Florida - Hands Down, you will not be disappointed. Do not waste your trip eating anywhere... More

From the moment you walk in with a view of the kitchen to enjoying the ambiance of this restored 1913 home you will appreciate what you are about to experience. Starting with garlic bread with spiced olive oil served with a complementary marinated red cabbage, peppers. The BLT wedge salad was a great start for the Caribbean Mahi-Mahi served over... More

This place has some really amazing dishes. Presentation taste and cost.all excellent. And I especially like you can order 1/2 portions dishes on those nights when you're not starving. And believe me their 1/2 portions are enough to satisfy most people. Chicken Cordon Bleu with country ham amazing. The only complaint I have is they don't have bottled water.

My wife and I just ate dinner here for the second time. We had eaten here on our trip last year to Anna Maria and it was just as good this time as it was last year. We started our dinner with the Watercress Salad and it was very good. My wife ordered the Mahi Florentine and I had the... More

When we walked in our 3 year old said "wow it smells good in here" the hot bread with garlic and spiced oil was delicious. We got the brie with honey thin pastry with... More
