I have eaten at the Sea Merchant several times and always enjoy the food. Although this is not a small restaurant it has a cozy feel. The prices are very reasonable for the quality. Average cost is $18-$24.

Great place for family and friends. Nice for the kids with us and the drinks were fine. Waitress was very nice and had a sense of humor (which is good to have with our group).
