Weekend outing with friends

It is a old house made into a restaurant. It is a la cart, so if you main dish with something else it will be extra. I shared Scallops with my husband which was wonderful very tasty {we got the large portion} and it was plenty. Fresh baked bread was free, if you wanted more condiments that was... read more

Small space, but did not feel crowded. I had the fresh catch mahi caribbean style and my mom ordered the scallops, both were piping hot and delicious. The portions are large. The staff here was knowledgable and genuinely kind, from the moment we walked in everyone greeted us and made us feel welcome. It is rare to find a restaurant... More

My fiance and I had the privilege of dining in the adorable restaurant, Sign of the Mermaid, on Anna Maria Island, Florida, in April 2015. We were so impressed with the friendliness of the wait staff, the coziness of the atmosphere, and the extensive menu that we decided we would have our morning-after-the-wedding-day brunch there. "Kelly" worked with me endlessly... More

We decided to go here since the tourist season is over and there was no line out the door. The restaurant is really an old beach cottage that now has tables in every room. The decor could use some upgrades: most of the pictures and lighting looked like something from a low end thrift store. We sat in the back... More

The beach cottage we stayed had had several past visitors recommend this place and they weren't kidding. All the entrees our party had were excellent. Highly recommend going to this restaurant.

very clean, beachy feel, nice little rooms to eat in - not your big open noisy room. curtains were open weave you could see outside. Coffee refills frequent. Neat and tidy. Above average furnishings. Food was outstanding I had the stuffed French toast it was a little too sweet $9.99. my husband had the$4.00 breakfast French toast, potatoes sausage patty.... More

I had my sister's enjoy two great meals recently this April at The Sign Of The Mermaid. By Far, the best Seafood you could enjoy when in Anna Maria Island. Nick and Debbie F.

My friend recommended the Sign of the Mermaid and we were so happy we took her up on it! Seriously the best food we had all week. The waiter was very helpful in suggesting portion sizes. The dessert was even amazing. It's a little pricey but worth every penny. You have to go!
