About this Business
From Our Editors
The cool, dark confines of the Mermaid are a shelter from the sun-drenched sand just beyond its doors, even before bartenders pour out cold beers. Guests lounging in its black-leather booths chow down on foods from popcorn shrimp to filet mignon, or linger sipping classic cocktails and fruity tiki drinks. Enormous front windows offer views of the action on the beach.

A Peek Inside
In terms of decor, The Mermaid keeps it simple. Recent renovations have softened the lighting without erasing the bar-restaurant's laid-back, dive-y charm. Blown-up black-and-white photographs of surfers smile out over diners in the front part of the dining room, while horseshoe-shaped booths ring red pool tables tucked in back of the bar.
