“Mahi-Mahi with Tarpon viewing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Our second trip to Mermaids was as good as the first. Mahi-Mahi was excellently grilled. The $27 price seemed high until we saw the large portion, done to perfection; the sides of cole-slaw, plantain, and grilled veggies made the price seem like a very reasonable deal. Shrimp dish was excellent. Cocktails for $5 was a bonus, as was the view of the huge tarpon swimming under the restaurant, glistening in the multi-colored underwater lighting. Service was speedy, courteous, efficient. Waterfront dining--such a nice way to end the vacation.

“BBQ Pig Roast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

The Tuesday evening BBQ night this week was excellent. The food , fresh salad followed by all u can eat rice and beans , potatoes , veggies, curry mutton , mahi mahi and the headliner roast pig were all full of flavor and cooked to perfection. For under $25 per person ( food) the value hits the spot as well. Smiling staff and great service cap it all off.

“Great people, great food, great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

We've been coming to V. G. for years . This place has it all- friendly people, both local and tourist, a stunning view no matter what time of day, and delicious food and drink. We've had conch fritters from all over the island, and their homemade ones are THE BEST!! With live music often playing and WIFI if you need it, this place is a favorite. Our son loves to be with the fishermen(either fishing or just learning..) and our daughter just likes to "hang out" (limin'). It's a great place for the whole family.

“Great view, excellent local food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

This restaurant is on the water, literally. You can watch huge tarpon swim under the dock on some days. The local food, beans, rice, crab cakes, etc. is made fresh. Have the local fresh fish of the day, with spices, grilled. It is heavenly, the people are very nice. We ate here a couple of times, delicious. beautiful sunset views as well.
