We we're looking for a good burger and fries, burger had a good flavor, handcut fries were fresh. Hushpuppies were great, it was all a little pricy for burgers but it is right on the island, walking distance for many houses on the island.

Stopped in to grab a quick, late lunch. Bartender was handling lunch and drink orders by herself. But she got everyone's food and drink order quickly. Food arrived quickly. Drinks were good. Blackened grouper sandwich was very good.

Dropped in for lunch, you order at the counter, get a number and go find a table, and the food is bought to you. Nice, easy and efficient. Lunch time especial ( a Gyro) was great and very good value. They have an extensive menu, and everything looked good. Beer a little pricey, but you are on a tourist beach. Would definitely recommend and will go back.

Mermaid's Island Grill is a casual, beachy restaurant with good seafood as well as other very tempting dishes. There is a full bar upstairs where it is also great fun to eat. I wish they had not changed to having to order at the counter when you first walk in. I also do not prefer all the signs which make it feel as if you are in a fast food place, but after you get past that, it is great.

My husband and I went to Mermaids on 9.9.17 for dinner. It has been about a year since we have been. You now have to order at the counter before sitting down, get a number, and someone brings your food to you once ready. Drinks and anything else is self serve. We both ordered the seafood platter, one flounder platter and one flounder shrimp combo. Each platter was $16.99. The flounder platter will leave you hungry, as there were only two small pieces of flonder. The shrimp platter had one piece of flounder and a hand full of popcorn shrimp. The best part of the meal were the fries and ranch dressing. For the price, amount of food, and taste, we will go somewhere else for seafood. They do have other menu items besides seafood.
