“Something Different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The bar/restaurant had very unique decor plus atmosphere. Very large beer menu, over 100 plus wine and hard cider. The menu was somewhat limited; sandwiches, a salad or two, but did have fondues. The steak sandwich was on the best roll, hard but soft and flavorful. We ordered chocolate fondue for dessert and the waitress recommended doing the Reese's version which was 1/2 peanut butter and 1/2 dark chocolate, but when the bill came it was $24. We did not expect that cost. Our fault for not looking. It was enough for 4 people, lots of fun things to dip and it was scrumptious. All other prices were very reasonable and the hard cider was yummy. Service was excellent as well. We would definitely return.

“Funky fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We went to this restaurant because of the reviews, we did not expect more than bar food, so it was a pleasant surprise to find "crab fondue" and it was delicious! The atmosphere was great, live music (the performer was very good) and nice people around. Strongly recommended if you are in town!

“Eclectic fun and good food, too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Glad I checked the menu online for this place. It's what brought us in. Located near downtown, the Kilted Mermaid is a small pub. The decor is dark and somewhat whimsical with interesting lighting and decorative mermaids all over.
We knew when we walked in that we were going to order the fondue but we had to decide which flavor. We decided on the spinach and artichoke mixed with fontina and havarti cheese. The fondue was light with subtle flavors and was served with a plate overflowing with bread pieces and a wide variety of veggies. We also opted to get the meat skewers combo. The menu said the fondue is for two people and the portion size was just right for my friend and me.
Of course, we made sure to save room for dessert -- chocolate fondue. It was delicious and our meal was considerably less than a certain chain of fondue restaurants I know.
The servers were friendly and fun. We asked to move further away from the band before it started playing and they were happy to accommodate. They suggested we enjoy dessert in the "couch room" in the back and we did.
We were told the restaurant is frequented by locals and I plan to join them on my next visit to Vero Beach.

“Very Different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Not for everyone; but if you're one that enjoys a fun atmosphere; great selection of beer; good service and a lighter meal the Kilted Mermaid is worth trying.

Waitstaff was outstanding; both owners on site and the woman with a 18 inch tattoo of a mermaid on her back and partner walking around wearing a kilt...that might give a flavor of the joint.

Food included good salad, fondu and hearty sandwich. Chased down with a chocolate stout.

The night we had dinner was open mic....some very good local talent.

Not for all but if you are looking for a fun night out....
