We stopped in for lunch before a play. The menu is large and very intriguing. It was difficult to choose. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was superb. The beer menu is also fantastic, carrying a large number of local craft beers. I will definitely be going back the next time I am in town.

A great number of the Stratford restaurants are billed as "farm to table", and a great number of Stratford chefs are graduates of the same school of cooking. This results in meals that are almost interchangeable from one place to the next. Mercer offers a very welcome change to that and at a good price too. The menu at first... More

Been a few times as I live a couple doors down. Absolutely love the menu! Their sides are only $5 and you get a huge portion, if you're just looking for a quick bite and a beer. Their fries are amazing. Also, so many interesting small and large plates that I can't wait to try. Best veggie burger I've ever... More

Mercer is so popular that we had a hard time getting a reservation any later than 3:45, but since we had heard such good things about it we decided to go. Our food was outstanding. We chose four different appetizers to share and each of them was different and unique in its own way. We will definitely return and plan... More

We were here for lunch recently. The service was friendly and the menu had many interesting items on it. I had the fried chicken, which was great, but the best part might have been the biscuit that accompanied the meal. My dining companions had the duck rice bowl, which was also very good. It was obvious (and appreciated) that there... More

We had lots of time for a pre-theatre dinner as a 6-some. Andrew N was beyond brilliant as our waiter, interacting with us on the level we initiated: full knowledge of the menu, impressive her selection and wines - and personality+. Everyone really enjoyed their multi-course meals chosen from many places on the nicely creative and innovative menu - but... More

Popular with the young folks, this is primarily a burgers and buns place. The burger was fine, as was the Schnitzel-on-a-Bun, but the standout was the (rather spicy) Radish Salad starter. The desserts were uninspired. Cost for two - starters, mains, desserts, a wine and a beer - just under $100 Canadian.

Good food in very generous servings with good wine list and an absolutely fantastic list of beers. Everyone around us was having a good time too so pick your food to choice. All items are worth having.

Mercer has done a real great job of 'reinventing' itself in a very crowded resteraunt scene. They still offer up some great food but the real attraction now is their 'beer town' like selection of ales. Highly recommend if your bored of the same old.

The menu is creative and diverse. The plate presentation and quality of the meal is excellent. The restaurant is very narrow but nicely decorated. There is a lively buzz in the restaurant but it was not too loud to talk to your dining companions.
