“Wow, the best in the area”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Had a wonderful fish dinner. Great flavor, great service. We had a table for 2 in the fish market area. There is also a dinning room and a large outside dinning area. This is a new restaurant and has the smooth operation of an experienced place. It was a busy night, but service was quick, pleasant , and un hurried. A special thanks to Tina for being our server.
The menu is fish orientated, but does have meat items available.

“VERY impressed!!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

We've been customers of Merrick Seafood since 1992, and were thrilled they were opening a restaurant there. These people really know the business (my husband and I both have extensive restaurant backgrounds). They designed a beautiful space (inside and out), they trained their staff thoroughly (Eileen was great!), the menu is ample without overkill on the amount of choices. The food is excellent and you couldn't ask for any fresher seafood than this. The prices are very reasonable, and the owner makes the rounds to see if the customers are happy. Absolutely love this place and we will be back!!
