This was another suggestion from an AMI local and were really glad we stopped by. The atmosphere was so quaint, like you are stopping by a friends house to have brunch. The staff was very persnable, which added to our delicious breakfast. My husband had...More

We had breakfast at this place. The food was the best part for sure. The service was good but not great, and the atmosphere is that of a claustrophobic old house with low ceilings and tables very close together. The air flow wasn't great, either,...More

I don’t recommend this restaurant because a chef’s only as good as his sauces... and every sauce we had was watery. We ordered the ‘special’ grouper cheeks’ appetizer..and the sauce was watery vs. creamy...same thing for the broccoli and cauliflower.... My spouse ordered Chicken Francaise...More

Warmly greeted. Our waiter Charlie was a ball. Upbeat with great service. No one shared as the plates emptied to rave reviews from all four of us. Lamb, I was told, was excellent. Shell Fish Trio was plentiful and the lobster was full of flavor....More

Quaint 1900s house that is now a restaurant. Small in appearance from the front, but plenty of seating inside. Look for the sign, so you don't miss it. Parking in the back. The closest entrée to a vegetarian-vegan meal is the vegetable pasta, although the...More

Even though the restaurant has changed hands, it has not changed in quality of food and service. The eclectic atmosphere and solid extensive menu are preserved. The staff is attentive, but not intrusive, the food is varied and nicely prepared, and it is a great...More

Our experience has been less than pleasant. We ate at The Sign of the Mermaid twice last week, both times they were late opening, and we were shooed back outside in the heat to wait until they felt they were ready. The third time we...More

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.
