Key..lime...pie...

The food was delicious but a bit pricier than expected. The shrimp and grits were probably the best I've ever had. They had the best key lime pie I've ever had. In fact, we ordered three whole pies to take back home with us- the pie was that good! The restaurant was a little stuffy but overall it... read more

This key lime pie is simply sublime! Made my vacation on AMI just that much more special! The owner is very nice too! Cannot wait to come back and try this place for dinner.

As you'll see there are some mixed reviews of the Sign of the Mermaid; I now understand why. We went there as a family for dinner. On the good side the staff are very welcoming and enthusiastic. The restaurant has the feel of the converted house it is, which is quaint and they do BYO for corkage of around $15... More

A sweet little yellow house that holds wonderful culinary delights! We were greeted and seated by Morgan who was warm, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We were going to a performance at the AMI theatre so Morgan helped us choose items we could get a little quicker. Pickled cabbage, onions and sweet peppers were served to each table with... More

The Sign of the Mermaid is a delicious restaurant. My husband and I went during our honeymoon and we had a fabulous 4 course meal. Prepare to spend some money, but your taste buds will thank you. Make sure you get the key lime pie!!

Wow. We visited the Sign of the Mermaid for a romantic dinner and had a pretty awful experience. They were out of almost all of their white wines and many of the entrees - we ordered tuna, which was abysmal - frozen, not fresh, grisly and just about inedible. The three tables adjacent to us all expressed displeasure with their... More

We stopped in on the day before closing for a few weeks. They were out of this, and they were out of that. The waiter wasn't quite sure what they did have. The food was good, but quite heavy and very very expensive. Maybe people usually have a good experience but ours was mediocre.

As of yesterday the entire building was securely tented with a sign that it was under fumigation. Yikes!! Sign reading danger, poison inside. I think I'll pass on eating at this place anytime in the near future.

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
