This restaurant is connected to the Argonaut Hotel but I'm not sure if they are under the same ownership. It's an easy and convenient place to eat breakfast but there are too many other choices for lunch and dinner in the area. Service was okay, not great. Food was average.

We happened upon this little gem to get out of the wind . Cute place packed bar. The staff and customers were fun. Food was above average bar food. The bar was packed the tables mostly empty in the afternoon. They lost a few customers because the would not let the bar customers sit at the tables, they need to rethink this policy.

A handy place for breakfast with nice staff. Smokes salmon omelette appeared promptly and tasted good. Server kindly sought out a newspaper for me and was attentive without being annoying!
An attractive space and nicely set out with plenty of interest. I shall come here again.

I love this place for chowder: by the cup, or bowl, or the wonderful chowder sampler, your choice of three custard cup size chowders for $12. My consistent favorites? Shrimp & Pepper, California Clam Chowder, and Dungeness Crab & Corn.

Whilst staying at the Argonaut, a delightful hotel with great attention to customer service we opted to have breakfast at their restaurant, the Blue mermaid. Sadly it became apparent within minutes that the service was not going to be of the same high standard, so disappointing. We will definitely not be having breakfast there during the rest of our stay.

The food was average , the breakfast potatoes had clearly been cooked and kept warm for many hours ... Everything was below par . Such a shame that the staff in the restaurant can not make the effort to be more amiable, we felt like an inconvenience.
