Stuffed French Toast = Decadently delightful.

Eclectic little place. Order the stuffed french toast. It's decadently delightful. The waitstaff were friendly and the building itself has a unique charm to it.

Let me be clear, this review is ONLY for dessert and only for takeout. We were not lucky enough to get a reservation but we did grab some pie to go. I typically do not enjoy Key Lime with meringue however, I likely would have sacrificed my first born and my husband for another piece of this pie. It was... More

My wife and I visited AMI to celebrate our 11th anniversary. We decided to try Sign of The Mermaid after not visiting the past two summers on AMI. We were tired after our lengthy day at the beach, so we decided to make our order to go. We ordered the large portion of diver sea scallops, and it was absolutely... More

Ask for Wednesday to be your server, she is fantastic. The food and service were outstanding from start to finish. Mussels in garlic and white wine and the baked brie were our appetizers, both were delicious. The house bread service is some of the best bread I've ever eaten; served hot, with a nice crunchy, crust but soft inside. I... More

We decided to stop in for lunch and boy were impressed. I had a flakey fish bake that was amazing. Everyone loved their meal and the dessert...oh my!! We loved it so much we bought a pie and took it home! The service was great and so personable. We will be back! The only reason I couldn't give a perfect... More

We had our first meal on Anna Maria at this quaint little house converted into a restaurant. I think the dinning room has seen better days and the staff a bit salty but I never expect too much from beach side tourist restaurants. The portions were large but a little too creamy and fatty for our taste. The kitchen is... More

This is by far the best restaurant on the island. Great menu and fantastic service. We could tell that the chef/owner really cares about what he puts out and wants you to be satisfied with your visit. I look forward to our next meal at the sign of the mermaid!

Just got back from our 4th trip to AMI and the Sign of the Mermaid was amazing. This is our favorite restaurant in the world and it is always the highlight of our trip. We had excellent service with our waiter, Roger. Ed, the owner/chef was busy cooking delicious food, but was very friendly and took time to talk to... More

The service at Sign of the Mermaid is what one should expect ,very attentive and always floating about to check on the customers. Of course we can't help ourselves when it comes to our favorite meals, Chicken Cordon Bleu for me and Chicken Florentine for my wife. Can't wait to return in September.

Though it doesn't look like much from the outside- this is a very neat place to have a meal. It is an old house renovated into a restaurant. It is not modern or glamorous by any means, but the food and service were amazing and that will bring us back for sure. We went for dinner, arrived early and were... More
