  • The Blue Mermaid has been around since anyone can remember. A traditional steakhouse with heavy oak interior and waiters in tuxes. The food is signature. The steak is perfect and so is the seafood from oysters to fish. The service is top-notch. They can sense your pace and keep you exactly at it. The personal care and attention is amazing.

    The highlight is a toss-up between the freshly made seizer salad dressing made right next to you to be tossed freshly, and the flambé for desert. You know what, just take both.

  • Order: Seizer Salad, Oysters, Steaks and fish.

  • The service here blew us all away. If that was all there was, it would have the whole table coming back for more. Then the food came out and we were even more impressed. If you call ahead of time and pre-order the steak tar-tar (raw steak!) it is a treat. The oysters are also to die for, as is the lobster, steak, and fish. Downstairs there is also a bar/lounge area where a pianist plays on weekends.
    The decorations are a little bit dated.
    Definitely coming again! Unfortunately, the cost makes it that we can only come on extremely special occasions - but that just makes it all the better.

  • Order: Oysters, Steak Tartar, Lobster, Steak, Fish, Caesar Salad, Lobster Bisque, etc.

  • I've eaten alot of seafood chowder from many places along the East coast of Canada and the U.S. And as many or more Lobster rolls and sandwiches. This is the first time that I have ever been served a seafood chowder with no seafood in it. The lobster sandwich was a grilled cheese sandwich with 2 small pieces of lobster in each half of the sandwich, an absolute insult. The exorbitant prices are deceiving, leading the diner to expect quality cuisine.

  • Order: Seafood chowder, Lobster sandwich

  • This was the worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. The food was bland, tasteless and WAY WAY overpriced. The service was slow as we were not "regular" customers and we were also quite a bit younger than the average customer there. We will never, ever go back and are quite disappointed that we spent that much money at such a terrible restaurant.

  • Order: Shrimp Poisedon, Catch of the Day, Sirloin Steak, Chianti
