Since hiring Matt Taylor as manager, all aspects of this business have improved. Staff training, service, accuracy of orders, quality of food and attention to detail are as good as it gets for this moderately priced restaurant. I highly recommend it.

You have to drive a bit to Lake Caroline to find this restaurant but worth the trip. The salmon was awesome. The ribeye great too. Former chef of Nicks is the mastermind behind this place I hear. Make the trip and enjoy.

This place is out of the way, as many have said, unless you live on the west side of Madison County. The food is reliably good. Excellent seafood dishes. It is very casual and come-as-you-are type atmosphere. If you are in the area, I definitely...More

Mermaid is a hidden jewel. It is not fancy. It is not pretentious. It is not a place you will swoon over while there. What it is: perfectly situated with views of Lake Caroline, fun atmosphere (except during early dining hours when there are just...More

This is a seafood restaurant owned by restauranteur Nick Apostle. The Mermaid Cafe is always packed on the weekends for two reasons. One, it is the only restaurant in the immediate area, and two, more importantly, it offers excellent tasting seafood dishes.
