Since hiring Matt Taylor as manager, all aspects of this business have improved. Staff training, service, accuracy of orders, quality of food and attention to detail are as good as it gets for this moderately priced restaurant. I highly recommend it.

This is a seafood restaurant owned by restauranteur Nick Apostle. The Mermaid Cafe is always packed on the weekends for two reasons. One, it is the only restaurant in the immediate area, and two, more importantly, it offers excellent tasting seafood dishes.
