We enjoyed our best meal at The Mermaid. Not only is the ambiance of sitting outside looking over the harbor a ten, but the food was fantastic!

The food was very good! Waited quite a while for our table and the tables were rather crowded together.

Great place for lunch. The sandwiches were tasty and prices reasonable. If the weather is cooperating sit out on the patio and enjoy the beautiful views of the Kalamazoo River!

Here for a week so planned dinner at the "don't miss this" restaurant. We like the casual atmosphere, good food, and people watching from the outside tables. I recommend the mermaid cocktail followed by either fish tacos, Grilled Mahi Mahi, spinach salad with coconut shrimp, or grilled salmon. All were good. Service was right on Que. Fun watching people stroll... More

Good food, nice view from the deck. You could ask for blanket/throw, which really helps if the weather is a bit windy.

Eat outside if the weather permits. Wonderful views of the passing boats. Evening is better than afternoon because the tables will have umbrellas. Interesting to watch the people walk by as everyone looks at your food. Food was tasty, started with the whitefish appetizer, very good, and our entrees were a pasta alfredo and a stir fry. Highly recommend their... More

We decided to sit outside on the deck for lunch...what a great decision! A great view, great service, and incredible food. One of us ordered the walleye and it was fantastic. The rest of us ordered salads and burgers and everything was great. I highly recommend the Mermaid.

Smoked whitefish pate is good and shrimp and goat cheese pasta is delicious! Other than that, food is average. Restaurant has a nice location along the water with outdoor seating.

This was a nice experience and atmosphere right on the water. The food was very well prepared and tasted good, albeit not of local flavor. A stir fry chicken and an alfredo dish. I would have anticipated due to the prices that our evening meals might have come with a salad and/or bread, but neither is offered. Good food just... More

If you are looking to sit outside and watch boats, this is the place to go. Great views... I had the fish and chips for dinner and it looked like came from the freezer section at your local grocery store. 3 fish sticks and some fries - not impressive. My dinner guest had a turkey burger, which was "just ok."... More
