We were on AMI last week and visited Sign of the Mermaid for the first time. From top to bottom, it was a great experience. Salads were very good. My wife especially was pleased with hers...baby greens with goat cheese wrapped in a phyllo puff. For entrees, I had the rack of lamb. It was done nicely and had a... More

We made reservations to eat at the Mermaid for Easter dinner. We read an ad that said they were having a "special menu." I assumed that meant Easter type foods, hoping for ham. I did not assume that it would mean a limited menu, with the prices jacked up and no ham. I had an excellent blackened cobia, which was... More

We have visited man times. We typically take my in-laws for their anniversary, so the party is at least ten people. The quirky atmosphere, good service and great fresh food have kept us coming back. Our most recent visit was a disappointment. From the start, the waiter, who is a long time employee and perhaps not the most caring fellow... More

This one of our favorite places in the area but we were there last month and we were attacked by fruit flies and we asked the waiter if we could move to another table and he rolled His eyes and walked away then came back and told us no and he couldn't have cared less. We asked the hostess and... More

The salads are nice and the soups are good. If you are looking for something dressy casual, this is a good choice.

The lines in the morning are ridiculous - I only have desert there. My husband went up and picked me up pie several nights. Amazing.

We wanted a very nice meal to celebrate a birthday, but we didn't want to break the bank. We were very satisfied with our meal at the Mermaid! The sauces that were presented were incredible. We highly recommend the shrimp and grits. This is a place to slow down and relax and enjoy your meal. So don't be in a... More
