We ad a fabulous 4th July

We ate here on our previous visit to AMI, which was on 4th July. We had an excellent brunch - 2 adults & 2 children. The food was excellent - french toast, omelettes, fruit cup. The decor let the place down, it would benefit from an upgrade.

As longtime Island residents, we've dined at Mermaid many times over the years and always enjoyed good food. Not so recently. For starters we ordered very basic wine. They didn't have it. Next, as I had seen Maui Maui with honey and almonds advertised on their internet menu I asked if they still had it as I had not seen... More

Enjoyed a most unique and delicious breakfast. Berry stuffed Crème Brielle stuffed French toast. YUMMMMM I could eat this every day. Previous years we went for dinner and that was equally amazing. Don't miss this place.

We usually go to the Mermaid for special occasions and it never disappoints. Overall the food here is very good, but the hors d'Oeuvres are the main attraction for us. Among our favorites are the Orange Blossom Baked Brie in Phyllo and the Watercress Walnut Salad. We normally get so filled up on the hors d'Oeuvres that we have to... More

I happened upon this adorable cottage of a restaurant in Anna Marie Island by chance and am so glad I took the chance and stopped in. The entire place is so pleasant, from the divine smells and sights upon entering the door, to the friendly staff, to the eclectic decor—the food had to be at least equally pleasant, and I... More

My wife had the lobster and said it was just OK. I had the prime NY Strip steak, it wasn't medium rare as ordered and it wasn't as tender as I expected. I was told it was a 12oz steak the problem is it was long and cut thin. Had one beer and the bill was 100.00 w/tip.

This was a cute, eclectic little breakfast spot. I was really pleased with the price of the breakfast specials (served Thursday-Saturday 9-11 a.m.). The creme brûlée French toast was delicious.. I have to say the service was pretty slow, we had to keep asking the waitresses to let us order, bring our check, etc. So if you are willing to... More

One of the best meals ever!! We have eaten here a number of times but tonight was over the top. Freshest homemade bread with fresh garlic and olive oil for dipping. Shrimp and grits appetizer that was a meal portion. Highly recommend Chicken Florentine and Sirloin Steak. No room for dessert tonight but the Key Line Pie is award winning!

Loved the food. Very fresh seafood, Hugh portions and we chose the small portions. Friendly and knowledgeable staff who weren't shy about giving personal recommendations. The only down side for me was that we were seated next to a window with the sun coming through making it so hot that we had to leave because I got uncomfortably warm.
