First off, we arrived about 30 minutes before closing (I know I know but our painting date had gone longer than expected) and the staff were absolute dolls. They greeted us with smiles and we're very ...warm the whole time. We ordered the spinach dip and crab cake appetizers (two dishes I normally don't care for at all) and we loved them! So delicious! They also brought bread with olive oil and water of course. I also ordered the mermaid cocktail and coconut shrimp with rice. Again, mouth wateringly amazing. There honestly isn't anything negative I can say. Our food was even brought to us very quickly. We ended up leaving only 5 minutes after closing time and they never even asked us to leave or rush us to finish eating. Will definitely recommend this place and will be back the next date night!

This review is based only on my personal experience, not that of our group. Ordered coconut shrimp instead of steak, and it was cooked to death. Never seen shrimp cooked that long. Since it was a grou...p of 8, I didn’t want to reorder and have to wait. Probably wouldn’t eat there again. See More

Food portions way too small, fish way over cooked, slow service, no flavor to ceaser dressing; just to name a few... This was our Anniversary/Valentines dinner date and we were very unimpressed. Won't... be going back. See More

When you go and order off the menu it is better, but I've had a lot of experience with large group buffets at Mermaids and have been consistently disappointed. It seems like often there is no cohesiv...e theme to the meal with large group buffet, like having chicken marsala with pasta and rice. Underwhelming especially for the prices you pay. See More

Went to mermaids on a double date with our best friends for both of our wedding anniversaries. We all ordered different appetizers and different entrees and we all loved the food we ordered! So delici...ous and good portions too! Our server was amazing...helpful, funny, and checking on us the perfect amount. Really enjoyable celebration with great friends, and great foods/drinks.

We had plenty to choose from and I only wish I could've had everything on the menu! Lol. I was perfect! The staff was top notch and treated us great! Just a little bit of a wait and it was well worth once I tasted the food! See More

Food was subpar-so expensive and too many issues to name them all. I honestly will never go back. The only good thing was our server. But even as good as she was she couldn't make it a pleasant experience.

I chose the coconut shrimp, most places the shrimp is soggy or over breaded. This was just right, and didn't feel like some cheap dish at all. My gf also loved her Cajun pasta. I look forward to here again. See More

Tried to dine here. Never made it passed the entrance foyer. Hideous service front of house, dread to think how bad the service is inside! Unfortunately the restaurant deleted my comment about it on t...heir Facebook page rather than try to contact me and resolve my concerns... yeah, that's the appalling level of customer service they provide here. Beware. See More

Pretty good food and very nice restaurant. Basically every dish has pasta. ( I took my mom for mothers day since she can basically only have fish and chicken) With it being a sea food restaurant I did... not expect to see so much pasta on the menu ( she can not have pasta). It would be nice to have a bit more of a variety to choose from vs different types of pasta. I had the tortollini this last time and added chicken to it. It was extremely good but portion seemed a bit small and hardly had any chicken in it. Probably better to ask for double the chicken serving next time so it's not mainly pasta. See More

I have been wanting to go to mermaids for years, I decided my wifes birthday was the perfect time to try it out. We came in and the place was beautiful, which made us even more excited to try the food.... We ordered two appetizers to start. The mushrooms and the spinach dip, both were good. I ordered a coke to drink and it was flat so I asked for another and it came to the table flat too so I asked for a beer instead of trying for another soda. I ordered the Steak and lobster for dinner, what came to the table was not what I would call a steak it was like steak you get at a mexican resturaunt, it was very thin and there was so much soy sauce covering it I couldn't taste anything but the sauce. The lobster was breaded and bland and the noodles were not cooked all the way so they had a rubbery texture to them. After trying two bites of the steak I gave up trying to eat it. The server asked if I wanted a box and I said no. She said did you not like it, I said no and she went to the manager and he knocked half the price off of the entree. Im I pretty much paid 72 dollars for appetizers. They asked if I wanted something else but I decided I did not want to wait another 30 min for food. See More
