Mermaids is a restaurant I frequent about once a month or less; always good food, love the buttered bread, I miss the fried oysters! I had the spinach salmon salad. The price has remained the same, about $9.50, but the portion of salmon has been cut down. But always good quality!

We took our family for part of their Christmas and upon arriving everything was good, our table was close to a set of French doors that opened up to the entrance. We had a one month old grandson with us and we were very cold and asked nicely if they could turn up the heat or keep the doors closed... More

I joined some friends here for a Christmas celebration. We sat in an intimate bar area on a couch. I had to go to the bar to get a glass of wine. When the waiter finally arrived, I ordered calamari. We moved about ten feet away to the bar and my calamari went on by. Two plates went by to... More

We hosted a rehearsal dinner for our sons wedding, at Mermaids. I can't say enough good, about how well they handled it. The room was beautifully decorated, and each place set with a menu. Our guests were offered three entree choices, and from their comments, all were delicious, hot, and freshly prepared. The appetizers were great, and the wine and... More

The food was excellent, as was the wait staff! The only reason I did not give them an excellent rating was because of the noise level, all the hard serfaces mad the sound bounce so much it was hard to hear. All of us had a wonderful time visiting and eating together, I would recommend anything on the menu, the... More

Our experience started out beautifully with our reservations being made and changed flawlessly. However, the minute we arrived for our 6pm reservation we were told we were on a timeline and had to be out by 8:15. Ironic, since the large table next to us celebrating a birthday was never once told they needed to speed things up. The majority... More

We just celebrated our sorority pledge class 30 year reunion last weekend in Fayetteville. The group was so excited to gather at this fabulous restaurant. We had a 6:00 pm reservation. From the moment we arrived, our party was treated very rudely. Some of our group arrived promptly at 6:00- with others arriving 15 minutes later due to travel from... More

They have a nice banquet hall and very helpful servers. Food is always good and the room was layed out perfectly. This particular group seemed like 170-180 people.

Some friends came into town and wanted a local restaurant that served fish, so we decided to go to Mermaids. We got there about 7:30 on a Friday evening, so there was a bit of a wait. We sat in their lovely bar area and had drinks, and our table was ready quickly. They had a varied selection of entrees... More
