Under previous ownership, this was a great little place overall, with good food and a fun atmosphere. But this last time, the food was too salty and heavy. Seafood should be light! Entree prices are pretty darn high ($30 and up) and don't even include...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.
