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

The food at this restaurant just isn't good. I struggled to find something that sounded appealing to order. I ended up with a chicken dish that was average at best. Others in our party ordered steaks and they reported a lot of fat and found them to be tough. The overall appearance of the restaurant lacks ambiance and there was... More
