Usually this is just a drink stop, however my stomach wanted food. There were many specials in chalk on the board. The jerk chicken wrap was a good choice, hot hot hot as jerk should be. Thinking eating at mermaids should be on the list more often!

Very, very pretty view. The place is more of a shack outside - but that would have been fine. They say their specialty is lobster. No lobster. They were also out of most of their wines on the list. We didn't eat there.

This is an excellent restaurant and it is located on the water. Very cool setup and amazing fish that can be seen in the water. Free entertainment on some nights. Ask about it!

We stopped for a drink and to watch the tarpon. The cook came out with some scraps to get them eating for us. Really friendly staff. Great view. Drinks are good and prices usual for island prices. We didn't eat here. Maybe next time.

Food was a hit and miss and very pricey, waitress seem more interested in the men than doing their jobs. The view is great and as soon as the sun went down we asked for our check and left . Not worth the effort

Can't beat this location to grab a beer and enjoy the cool breeze and beautiful blue water. Like most places on the island, food is a bit over-priced for what you get, but would definitely recommend the burger and sweet potato fries.

I have been coming here for years and love the place. Good food from a small menu, huge tarpon swimming by your table and fun and friendly service. Plus the fish and lobster are fresh and delicious. But recently the prices have gone through the roof...Hopefully only a temporary surge..but unlikely.

If you're looking for lobster, here's the place. $35 for a half lobster. Great dining right on the water. Very small menu besides the lobster.

We stopped here for an early lunch with a group of 9 on our way to the Baths. It is on the dock with bay views all around. We saw a lot of fish and a few sea turtles right alongside the rail. It is open air as many here are. The food is very good and the chef has... More
