I was very disappointed with both the service and the quality of the food. We arrived for our reservation and no one even acknowledged our presence with at least an I will be right with you. Finally someone greeted us at 710p for a 7p reservation. We were escorted to a table next to the bathrooms and you could smell... More

We went there three times in one week as we were on vacation. 4/6, 4/7 and 4/11. The atmosphere is very nice and cozy. Each meal was marvelous! There was nothing that we could find that we didn't like. They have many specials each day and there is something on the menu for everyone. We sampled the beef, chicken and... More

We enjoyed our dinner at the Mermaid. Along with other comments, the service was a bit on the slow side but the food was really good. The portions were generous - loved the grouper with carraway encrusted potatoes - very different and tasty. The desserts are to die for - we took ours to go and enjoyed all pies later... More

This was a third trip in the past four years to Sign Of a The Mermaid. Let there be little doubt that this is a higher-end (and higher priced) restaurant on AMI. I'll start by saying that the food is back to being great again after a slip up two years ago. Expect select seafood specials and a menu that... More

Breakfast was great. Homemade everything (at least that I could tell) and very good service! Great value too as food quality beat the price.

Have been here a few times and the food is really great. Was there last night for dinner with one of my friends and the food was awesome. We were really just there to sit and talk so we weren't in a hurry but it took more than 20 minutes for someone to come get our drink order and another... More

It was a rainy day in Florida and we were looking for a good indoor dining experience. Generally we favor outdoor, on the beach experiences. The food was excellent, the service was impeccable.

Hard to save room for their award winning deserts! The meals are enough for 2-3 people and delicious. Fish is fresh & prepared to perfection. The location is convenient to Pine Street for a walk after the meal to make room for desert. Reservations are essential. We LOVE the Mermaid!
