The food was awsome along with the atmosphere and service. Go hungry the food is soothing and rich. Lady Wellington to die for!

We have visited the restaurant three times in the last 10 days, always with a reservation. The staff has consistently been attentive and responsive to our needs. The menu includes chicken, beef and lamb options if you have members of your party who do not eat seafood. However, I should emphasize that the fresh catch fish has consistently been the... More

My husband and I finally had the opportunity to check out Sign of the Mermaid. It had been suggested to us many times and we went around 12 noon on a Sunday. We were seated immediately and the food smells were coming from the kitchen. It's very hard these days to find a restaurant that makes from scratch their hollandaise/bernaise... More

This restaurant seems to operate on the premise that their food is so good that they can afford to have rude and arrogant wait staff. It's not. I had the worst dining experience that I've ever had at this restaurant. My husband and I went to the restaurant for dinner on our last night at AMI, we were ignored at... More

During our recent (and first) trip to AMI, we ran out of time to sample the dinner menu at the Sign of the Mermaid but we did purchase a key lime pie as carry out. OMG, it was divine. So, so good. Indescribably good. The best graham cracker crust ever- can't even guess how much butter was used! And the... More

We just love Sign of the Mermaid! You just can't go wrong with their creme brûlée French toast for breakfast. Delicious, every single day we were able to get to there. Such a great breakfast bargain meal with fresh fruit, homemade sausage, potatoes and the....French toast!! Thanks for filling our bellies again this visit. :)

If first impressions are important beware.....the woman who served us was about our reason to walk out the door! She had an attitude from the very start and being a group of nice women we gave her the opportunity to redeem herself plus we wanted to find out how the food actually was at this place. So making it through... More

5 stars on the food. Excellent quality and presentation. Adequate service. Reservations taken. The place was probably charming 10-12 years ago but now it's quite dumpy & time for a re-do
