I love this place!! We ate there for breakfast twice while on the island recently and ordered a pie for my 50th birthday. Get reservations or get there early. Really long wait time.

Lovely small restaurant here on Anna Maria Island. Outstanding salad with fresh berries and a very good dressing. The chicken stuffed with ricotta cheese and spinach was delicious and large enough to share.

Had a great dinner tonight here. We read about the Key Lime pie and decided that we would try it for dinner too! Ordered the garlic onion soup as an app and it was delicious! For the main I had the seafood pasta and could barely put a dent in it but it was really tasty. Luckily or purposely I... More

There should be something noted that reservations are required. Came at 5:15 on a wed and couldn't get in until 7:30 but the place was empty. Only 2 of us. Won't try again.

Broiled scallops were done to perfection!!!! Brussel sprouts were excellent!!!! My spouse's mahi mahi was excellent!!!!! Service was impeccable!!!! If a person doesn't enjoy The Mermaid, they don't appreciate outstanding meals and customer service!!!

It is still a good island place to eat. We had breakfast and it was good for the price. It is time to redo the restaurant it seems to be going downhill and the old cottage needs new carpet and curtains. Hope the owners will do this soon,before it is to late.

We went to dinner there last night. Our second time there. I'm sorry to say the food was very salty; appetizer and entree. The other couple said their side of mushrooms were also salty. I'm not sure I would go back. Also, it took two phone calls before they got back to me to say we had reservations.

We have enjoyed this restaurant on other visits to the island. The food excellent! Tonight we had a 7:30 reservation. Had to stand until after 8:30 to be seated. Waitress was distracted & inattentive, forgetting items we ordered. We had to ask about the specials & remind her about what we needed. When we finally got our food it was... More
