5 of us visited the Mermaid for breakfast and were delighted by the very warm welcome we received by ver pleasant happy staff.
The breakfast was excellent in every aspect, service, quality of food, portion, presentation and taste.
We were so pleased we went back the next day to do it all again!
Thank you Team Mermaid!

I would say this is the best restaurant in the area beating the Bistro by a long shot. It has interesting salads and appetizer choices, i.e. zucchini blossom salad. The shrimp and grits is the richest most tasty I have ever eaten and I eat a lot of fish and grits! The entree fish choices come in a light and hearty serving size which was a wonderful idea. The fresh snapper florentine was nothing short of fabulous as the fish had a lovely crust yet was moist and played off the rich spinach and cream. If you don't know about their desserts you may not save room which would be a huge mistake. They all looked terrific and our pie choices were all home made and delicious! The place itself is an old house with a bunch of little rooms with tables for two and four spread around. As a result the place has a friendly buzz but is not loud like so many crowded restaurants. The wait staff can be a bit casual but they are very attentive. I would choose this place for that special dinner.

The food at this restaurant. Was quite good but rich. We started with a's squash flower salad. Followed by several different seafood dishes. The pan roasted grouper was excellent but a very large portion. The Seabass François was also very good. The service was a bit slow.

I always take visitors to sign of the mermaid for Creme brûlée French toast, simply the best way to start your day . I just had dinner at the restaurant, and ordered shrimp and grits , it was. Fantastic, this is now my new favorite. I will definitely be back and will be sure to order this dish again.
