Great spot for breakfast! If you feel like indulging I recommend the stuffed creme brulee french toast.

Stopped the day before because someone mentioned this place. The man who “greeted” us was reluctant to even show us the menu, suggesting we could have viewed it online. We gave it a try anyway and wish we hadn’t. We arrived to an empty restaurant...More

We walked in at 8:45 p.m., the restaurant is open until 10p.m. The 2 cooks behind the counter commented to the waiter that "This is what happens when we stay open an hour later." He was aggravated and wasn't being shy about it. We decided...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.
