The Sign of the Mermaid has very tasty food. The restaurant is located in an old house that has character. French onion soup is excellant, and the Shrimp & Grits is worth the visit there. The menu is extensive, and it should appeal to many.

Gathered here recently on vacation with dear friends. While under the impression this was fine dining, all it takes is one step in the door to see very clearly that it isn't a fine dining establishment at all. The inside seems neglected of care; threadbare...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.
