We have not had this kind of laid back but totally outstanding service in a long time. A very interesting menu. A great place to take your bride or significant-other for a romantic evening and then walk across the street for a stroll on AMI's...More

The restaurant was recommended by someone we met at the beach. We stopped for an early dinner and were the only ones there. That should have been a red flag. Fruit flies or gnats swarmed our table and food. We asked for a fan to...More

This place is really cool. It's an old house converted to seat tables. Went on a Sunday morning and had about a 10 minute wait. Food was excellent and they had chocolate chips for the kid pancakes.

Alas I don't remember if there were gluten free dishes either. I would suggest you call and see if they would be able to accommodate your request.

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.
