“Great meal, but go early if you want to chat with your dinner party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We ordered the crab fondue, and the dessert fondue, and it was all good. Along with each a glass of wine and spliting the kilted mermaid salad (huge and easily split by 3 people), we spent about $24 each, so not bad. We had gone on Thursday, which was trivia night, and it was fun to listen to the questions, we did not play. But the music from the Trivia DJ was very loud, probably so you could not hear anyone discussing the answers, but we decided that we would to earlier to enjoy the meal and our company, as it was too loud to even talk to each other after 7:30pm. They are closed on Mondays...... and serve dinner only. Enjoy!

“A great time in vero!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I went to kilted a few weeks back and had a wonderful time! We loved the cozy eclectic back room and enjoyed the crab fondue, which was to die for! Our server (I think her name was Kate) was wonderful and knowledgable and personally recommended several beers from their impressive selection. All were great. We came back with some friends weeks later and our server not only remembered us but remembered the beers we had ordered after we had forgotten. Very impressive. We will definetly keep coming back to the mermaid! Highly recommended.

“Favorite local place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

This place is great! Super food, knowledgable staff.... They know their products and can describe them with ease. I always bring out of town guests here and visit myself once week or more. This place has put new life into Vero Beach.

“Funky Little Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

We love going to the Kilted Mermaid. The food is good, and they have an excellent choice of wine and craft beer. We also enjoy the atmosphere and the live entertainment! The owners and staff are extremely friendly.

“Love the Place-Get Rid of the Server”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

We have been to Kilted Mermaid twice and sent a friend with hubby once, so my review is based on 3 experiences. Food is quite good, prices are good, beer selection is great, and place is just "cool". Reminds me of a place in Greenwich Village-NYC. That said, the service is not "cool".
The owner with the kilt, is excellent. Smiles, talks to you, helps clear when needed, etc. The mermaid owner, (redhead) seems nice enough, but really does not have a grasp of the service industry. Seems to miss a beat as she walks through the dining area and asks things like, "oh, have you been served?" when we have been sitting in front of her for 5 minutes.

The turn off for us and our friend is the server (we think is named Stacy). You can't miss her as she is very tall, attractive, and well built. Was wearing flip flops so she clumped around. Has NO personality at all and treats you like you are bothering her, so service sucked. She is the reason our friends will never come back to the place-her lack of personality and service.
We had an Entertainment coupon which she proceeded to take out of my hand and say, "yeah, yeah, I know, buy one, get one free"...we ordered 2 fondues clearly and she ordered 1 of the 2 wrong. I guess we annoyed her? The Mermaid did fix it by giving us the right one, so their loss as we ended up with 3 fondues for the price of one. And we do love their fondues. But our server proceeded to talk about us to the kilt owner, like it was our fault. You know, whisper in his ear, and then both look at our table, knowingly. When it came time for the check, we waited on that even though the place was not busy on a Wed. night. No thanks for coming, Hope to see you again from her. The owner with the kilt, needs to spread his good karma to all that work there. He understands that you must be nice to people and speak to them with a smile.
Have very mixed feelings about the place due to the one server.
