This establishment was recommended by the guy driving our dive boat as one of his favorite watering holes and places to grab a bite. Other locals also suggested it as well, it did not disappoint.

Mermaid's sits out in the water on the end of a dock; so the view is great - nice breeze. Huge Tarpon swimming around the lights they have placed underwater to attract smaller fish that they eat. The seafood is fresh (I had King Mackerel with excellent potato salad and peas/rice), many local foods prepared with just the right flavor, strong drinks and friendly service. A group of interesting young locals even brought us a round of Mamajuana.

We were the only people at the restaurant, yet the service was poor. Half of the items on the menu weren't available and the food is average. Have to walk down the dock to a not so clean bathroom that is dimly lit.

After a day of exploring and snorkeling at the baths, we were all hungry. Unfortunately, my son wanted to eat at coco Maya, where we left from with empty stomach and wallet. (see corresponding review). Dockside turned out to be a nice save, with a good size, fresh mahi sandwich and surprisingly good potato salad. My 13 year enjoyed the grilled chicken with mac&cheese and Cole slaw. They also had $5 frozen drinks, which were tasty and packed a punch. The service was fine but did include a peculiar over eagerness to clear the table, which we found at most places on virgin gorda. Overall, a simple menu done right, and a school of tarpons off the dock for extra entertainment.

We were so disappointed our waitress was SO unfriendly because we loved the location, views and food at this place. We would have went back more often during our vacation had the service been better. I'm not sure if the girl was having a bad day or she simply just didn't like us.

While in Spanish Town, we took locals recommendations to try Mermaid's Dockside Bar & Grill. This required a quick taxi ride but was worth it. We were a table of 8 and the restaurant was quiet. The service was still great and the food yummy. The fish off the dock were cool to watch and the restaurant was just neat. We'd go back if we stayed in Spanish Town again.
