We had breakfast at this place. The food was the best part for sure. The service was good but not great, and the atmosphere is that of a claustrophobic old house with low ceilings and tables very close together. The air flow wasn't great, either,...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.
