“Great food, awsome beach, good painkillers”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

My wife and I came down to the Mermaid after a round of golf. The food was very good. Conch fritters were good (not the best ever, but good) served with a curry sauce. Both of our meals were very good and the view is amazing. We liked it enough to return the next day for swimming on the beach and lunch again. In case you were unaware, there are no private beaches on the island. This beach has beautiful sand and water and not a lot of coral and sea urchins in the swimming area. Not a great place for snorkeling. Drinks from the bar are cold and the "Painkiller" drink is just what it claims. 2 should have you speaking Cruzan in no time.

“NOT GOOD FOOD.”
Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

I live In STX! I would not come here to eat at my own expense, there are far more better restaurants on island than this tourist trap place. We came for lunch with a $50 gift certificate. The jerk chicken wings are horrible, too much sauce all over the plate. My boyfriend had the rueben, the bread was paper thin and was already soggy; he said the fries were gross. I had the columbus landing chicken sandwich... I can make a better chicken sandwich at home. NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY!! The only thing nice about this place is the atmosphere.

“Overrated and pretentious”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

The prices weren't bad but the food wasn't really great either. The view is absolutely beautiful but the patrons here seem to be very pretentious and snooty. Some of the conversations we overheard were hilarious though and provided some good laughs. The food was ok but the service was good. If you are at Shoy's beach it's a place to grab a quick bite if you are starving.
