    The service was fantastic. Everyone could not be nicer. We had left over food. The staff packed it up and held it for us. We went on an art tour. When finished we went back to Inn and they handed us our bags. Fantastic.

    A consistently exceptional experience. Excellent food served with a smile and nice ambience. Time and time again the experience remains well above the rest. The oysters are to die for.

    Although this was not our first time at the Mermaid Inn, it was our first experience at the HK location and hand’s down the best one yet. From the service to the food, we look forward to our return.

    Always an amazing time. We sat by the big open window this time to enjoy the nice summer breeze. Perfect meal for 2: Split the Linguine and clams, each enjoy the simply Grilled Cod with a side of Asparagus, paired with a glass on Sancerre! Great neighborhood gem.

    Nothing special. Our risotto was served with a piece of metal in it which was alarming. Restaurant has a poor smell. Questionable health standards.

    Very mediocre food. Loud environment, even in the “quieter” room.

    We started with oysters which were amazing, but how can you go wrong with oysters 🦪 we also had cocktail shrimp which were okay…I’m used to Florida shrimp so I am biased….we had salads (Caesar and tossed) which were plentiful and extremely fresh. For entrees we had the cod, the tuna & and lobster roll. Every one was scrumptious! Highly recommended the tuna!!!!
