We had a party there and what a great job the whole team did. We were able to use the three rooms upstairs and it was a comfortable setting for around 40 people. Jacob had made the evening run so smoothly. Everyone enjoyed the ambience, the food and the service. We had great appetizers with pulled pork sandwiches, bruschetta, chips... More

This used to be a fine dining spot in Danville. Something the city needed to offset the chain restaurants that are fill the town. However apparently this business was sold and the new owners made immediate changes in food, decor and staff. Music was very loud and hard to have a conversation over, we went on a Saturday night and... More

We saw Mermaids advertised on chefs of bluegrass show, hoping for a top class restaurant. Waiter said the name would be changed soon, chef gone, new owner, no gift shop now, decor gone(never heard of a new business not stating their new business name before!). Waiter was inexperienced at best. Dinner came out at same time as appetizer, steak had... More

Our servings of steak, ribs, and BBQ were giant and the new prices range from <$10 to around $20. This is a real improvement and we'll be back!

This restaurant is undergoing a change in ownership, as explained to us by our waitress. We found a good variety of food, including fresh seafood flown in daily, according to the menu. My husband's steak arrived less than warm and had to be reheated. Once it came back, it was very tasty and they took the charge off our bill.... More

When we arrived at our reserved time, it was immediately apparent that the staff were in a semi-panic mode. After being seated, we were told that it would be "awhile" before anyone got to us. After about 10 minutes, the same man came by and over-shared the information that a large party had arrived late and then still wanted their... More

We had dinner at this restaurant, which was unique. They were very busy so the service was slow, but the food was good.

The hotel suggested Mermaids among the few non-chain restaurants in Danville so we drove by. It's located in an old house across from the hospital but it looked charming so we gave it a try. The wait staff were all quite friendly and helpful. Sitting on the porch was a good choice for the beautiful evening air and the menu... More
