We chose the 3 course summer menu. Fair choice. Salad was of good portion and presented well. Lamb was delicious and satisfying. Shrips ordered by others were tasty and hearty.The Dessert was chocolate moose. Very nice.

I prefer mine on the spicy side and always indicate as such. The Blue Mermaid bartenders seem only capable of making half-watered-down Caesars with subzero... More

The most amazing food and service. We had our 40th anniversary dinner here and I was so impressed with the quality of food and service. We are planning take our son, daughter and daughter in law here for dinner before Christmas.

My wife and I always look forward to eating at the Blue Mermaid. Lunch, dinner, late night snack are always great, the service warm and we always go away feeling as if our patronage was appreciated by the family.

We had went to The Blue Mermaid as a group of 9, before ordering the waitress was asking how we were going to split the bill if we wanted to though had decided after all it would be one bill and we could split the cost between who had ordered what. The food was fantastic and the drinks were perfectly... More

I enjoy dining downstairs on Thursday, Friday or Saturday when Eddy Pisso is playing at the piano. The food is superb.

Too tired to go anywhere else, I just stayed at my hotel for my first night's dinner. But very happy that I did, I had a nicd bowl of chowder with fresh bread and butter. The chowder was 'original' with small asparagus tips in it. Delicious! Attentive, friendly service. I asked if I could take my dessert back to my... More

On May 16th a wonderful friend treated us to a special anniversary dinner at The Blue Mermaid. David was our incredible server who engaged us in some interesting folklore subjects. We enjoyed watching David make a fantastic Caesar salad table side - it turned out to be the best Caesar salad we have ever tasted. The atmosphere, food and service... More

We went on a Monday night and found the restaurant empty. There is an upper restaurant and a lower lounge. We went upstairs as the seating in the lounge was not condusive to my hubby's height for eating. The entire place is clean but tired. The washrooms were very clean but you could tell that an update is sorely needed.... More
