    Once a month, being wine club members, we always grab some dinner before picking up our bottles. I had the bison burger and side salad. The burger was juicy and delicious with generous toppings. My partner had their grilled cheese sandwich. I can't imagine find a better one in the 757. The above was accompanied by a fine bottle of nebiolo. As always, a great experience!

    The beet salad is perfect. Steve’s sweet, crunchy, candied nuts always just feel so right in my mouth, paired with the most delectable house made dressing. If you’re out and about on shore drive, ask to try Steve’s nuts! Your mouth will thank you.

    The taste of food was good not great. The portions were micro sized. I asked for decaf coffee and was given regular that kept me up til 300am. Good thing I don’t have a heart condition. The wine selection was great. If you come for just wine you are set. Forget the food. Overpriced and undersized

    Our group of six visited Mermaid Winery for our New Year's Eve dinner. It was a three-course dinner with choices of pork belly, scallops, crabmeat-stuff lobster, filet mignon, and various sweets for dessert. The portions were quite small, so I can't give top marks for value, though each was of very good quality. They served excellent wine with dinner — not their own, which turned out to be fortunate because two of our party sampled a couple of Mermaid's dry reds and came away with expressions that were not at all pretty. Regardless, the atmosphere, service, and food made the overall experience a great finish for the year. I'd certainly recommend Mermaid for the ambiance, service, and quality of the food.

    We went for our 25th Anniversary and it was a decent experience. The food was just ok. The scallops were cooked ok, but were very small. The best course was the entree. I had a cornbread and crabbed stuffed lobster. The flavor was amazing. The dessert items were decent as well. It was a a great price but I would have rather paid a higher fee with better food.

    Fantastic experience with highly trained staff that cater to your needs. We were celebrating a birthday and the waitress gave a celebratory glass of champagne to my wife on the house. It's those little extra services that differentiate a dining experience that will keep us coming back for more. It's a low cost, but highly valuable twist on our dining experience that builds loyalty in a highly competitive business. So, I applaud Mermaid Winery on creating a distinguishing and signature experience.

    Rated 4.5 stars on open table. As we pulled up it’s a regular parking lot with a valet. We walked inside it was well decorated for the holidays so we sat down and order some drinks and apps. Don’t get the mermaid fries they are sad limp not even fried. My girlfriend order the scallops and quinoa as I ordered the duck. When served duck was over cooked skin was burnt and was a plain simple dish. My girlfriends dish was a massive portion of quinoa versus the scallops. Not to mention the scallops were not fresh and cooked like rubber. The staff was very nice about the situation but if your looking for a nice place this is not it unless the kitchen steps it up.

    The scallop gnocchi special was good but the ratio between the two was not good. Not enough scallops or too much gnocchi. We sat outside and there was some sort of group next to us making too much noise. I thought you had valet parking when we were there before? The waiter misunderstood and brought the check before we could decide on dessert. He corrected his mistake though!

    This was our monthly wine club pick up. We always do a tasting and then dinner. Our tasting host, as always, was a absolute pleasure. He was knowledgeable about the offerings and super friendly. For dinner, we had our usual appetizer, the humus tray, then the grilled cheese for me and the salmon stack for her. The humus tray, as always, was delicious! My grilled cheese sandwich was delicious with the bread perfectly toasted. Her salmon stack was good as well but a little scimpy on the salmon. All in all, a great experience and highly recommended.

    I am a wine club member and this was wine pick up. It was also Wine Down Wednesday so I made reservations. We were seated in the wine tasting area. Our server was excellent! She made recommendations and was attentive. We did the wine tasting and enjoyed it. The guy doing the tasting did a great job. The food was delicious. We had the tuna steak. Perfect date night.

    My fiancée and I have planned our wedding ceremony and reception here and have dined several times, including friends and family, to prepare for seasonal wine selections and to check food quality and service consistency. This is an excellent place to enjoy a great meal and an amazing selection of wines in an upscale casual indoor dining room/bar and/or rustic environment on the pleasant environmentally controlled patio environment. The tasting room makes for a perfect casual or formal venue for small to medium events and includes it's own full service bar and a window wall the length of the room to appreciate the wine creation, barreling, aging and bottling process.
