Let me begin by saying the service provided by Shelby was spot on. She answered each and every question and knew her way around the seasonings of each dish. The only complaint I could have for this visit would be for a more ferocious appetit...More

This is THE breakfast place you have to try if visiting on the island. Seating is ample despite the size it seems from outside. Park in back. Wait staff is exquisite, best on the island. Foods were GREAT! Try the benedict. To delight yourself, reserve...More

Service is not consistent, although no arguments on the food side. Their crabcake appetizer seems larger than their crabcake dinner. Please don't tell them!

The restaurant was recommended by someone we met at the beach. We stopped for an early dinner and were the only ones there. That should have been a red flag. Fruit flies or gnats swarmed our table and food. We asked for a fan to...More

Lobster should be tender and succulent, not chewy. $30 for an entree and that doesn't even include sides. Friendly service. Interesting decor.

One night we dined by a large group having steaks. Do not believe The Mermaid serves lobster. But my personal preference, while on the island, is to stick with the local seafood. And the chef/owner treats it superbly.
