I have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years and I have never been disappointed. It is a classic steak house with great steaks and seafood. The cocktails are a generous pour compared to many restaurants and the service is professional and accommodating. The bar/lounge is a great spot for informal dining and has piano on the weekend.

It has been some time since we had dinner at the Blue Mermaid. We ate there on New Years Eve and things have not changed. Fantastic food and atmosphere.

In a positive way you don't know whether you're in the 70's, 80's, 90's or Noughties at the BM. You imagine that the interior decor, wood panelling etc have been there since the 'good ole days'. Service is consistent, considered and personal. Great conversation with some history and heritage there for all to see. Food wise, the Caesar salad is... More

I have lived in St. Catharines for many years and always meant to try this restaurant out but for whatever reason or another it was never on my radar. Ample parking steps away in downtown St. Catharines. Attended a Tuesday night which was very quiet. The ambiance in the main dining room is nice, good for a romantic dinner. The... More

My wife called for a reservation for 8 people including an 11 month old baby and she asked for a high chair. We arrived at noon and there was no one in the dining room. We were brought to our table. We asked about the high chair and he said they don't any. The restaurant obviously is not family friendly... More

Four adults. Bill for dinner was over $600. Done around 10:00 pm. Our designated driver asked for another cup of coffee. Waiter with the painted-on black hair was unhappy and stomped off for the coffee pot. As he poured the coffee, the waiter stared in her face and said "All night diner. All diner" in a very rude way. He... More

We are regulars at this place simply because it is our most favorite restaurant for dinner in St Catharines. The very friendly staff that makes you feel at home and the tasty food especially the centennial platter which is a must try in addition to the pleasant atmosphere all makes it a favorite place for special occasions.
