Have been here a few times and the food is really great. Was there last night for dinner with one of my friends and the food was awesome. We were really just there to sit and talk so we weren't in a hurry but it took more than 20 minutes for someone to come get our drink order and another 10 for someone to take our food order. We had the chicken Florentine and the shrimp and grits - both very good but if you are expecting creole shrimp and grits you might be disappointed. I had the macadamia-coconut crunch pie for dessert and it is amazingly delicious.

It was a rainy day in Florida and we were looking for a good indoor dining experience. Generally we favor outdoor, on the beach experiences. The food was excellent, the service was impeccable.

Hard to save room for their award winning deserts! The meals are enough for 2-3 people and delicious. Fish is fresh & prepared to perfection. The location is convenient to Pine Street for a walk after the meal to make room for desert. Reservations are essential.
We LOVE the Mermaid!

A nice place for a romantic meal. We have gone here for years and the food has always been very good as well as the service.

We had read so many positive reviews of this restaurant that we had to go there. We made a reservation for 6:30. When arrived there seemed to be some confusion about our reservation. They seated us promptly at the worst table in the place. In the corner by the exit with a light that had no fixture, just a bulb. The waitress explained the specials but omitted the prices. My wife ordered the smaller stuffed shrimp. I had the snapper special and choose the larger portion. Mywife. received three shrimp which were flavored mainly with garlic and her potato seemed to be recycled from an earlier meal. My Caribbean snapper, which usually has habenero or pequin peppers along with considerable flavoring, was tasteless. We reside in a Milwaukee suburb noted for bland food and the mermaid snapper exceeded that blandness. The kicker was that the dish cost $39! I've eaten in a lot of seafood restaurants, but have never encountered that price for fish. They also tried to charge us the full price for my wife's smaller portion and corrected it after I pointed it out to the waitress. We will never return!
